    A Look at Some Common Car Maintenance Blunders

    Last updated 9 days ago

    Modern cars and trucks don’t require nearly as much maintenance as they did a generation ago, but that doesn’t mean they are maintenance-free. Even if you recently purchase a new Ford, now is the best time to get into good habits regarding vehicle maintenance and repair. To help you save money and keep your vehicle in tip-top shape, here is a look at some of the most common car maintenance blunders to avoid.

    Driving on Worn Out Tires

    Like every pair of shoes you’ve ever worn, your vehicle’s tires will wear out over time. Driving on worn out tires isn’t just dangerous, but can also affect your vehicle’s performance, handling, comfort, and fuel economy. To help your tires wear evenly, have your tires rotated per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

    Ignoring the Check Engine Light

    Your car will let you know when something isn’t right, you just have to know what to look for. One of the most obvious clues that your vehicle needs service or repair is illuminated “check engine” lights. When this light comes on, head to the dealership and let a factory-trained technician diagnose and fix the problem.

    Not Getting an Oil Change

    New cars don’t necessarily adhere to the 3,000-mile rule, but that doesn’t mean you should go 20,000 miles without an oil change. Old, dirty oil can rob your engine’s performance and fuel efficiency, so be sure to stick to your manufacturer-recommended service intervals to keep everything running strong.

    Choosing the Right Oil for Your Ford

    Last updated 16 days ago

    To keep your Ford in great driving shape, it is important to schedule regular oil changes for your vehicle. When you have your oil changed, you will have several varieties of motor oil to choose from. To determine what type of oil is best for your Ford, consult your owner’s manual or talk to your mechanic. Many high-performance engines require synthetic oil to run smoothly and properly. Other engines may perform well with conventional oil, or a blend of synthetic and conventional. By choosing the right oil, you will help protect and preserve your engine.

    If your Ford vehicle is in need of maintenance, the expert technicians at Tower Ford Inc. will be there to assist you.
