If you have owned a vehicle for very long, you have probably heard it said many times that regular oil changes are one of the most significant ways to help extend your engine’s longevity and enhance its operating performance. So how often should you get an oil change? Read your owner’s manual! By adhering to the recommended oil change interval for your car, you can prevent excessive engine wear and tear. Fresh, clean oil optimizes your vehicle’s performance by keeping the engine parts lubricated, protecting against metal-on-metal contact.

Although oil changes are relatively simple and inexpensive, many drivers seem to neglect them. Many auto shops provide oil change coupons so that customers will take care of oil changes when needed.

Over time, oil deteriorates and loses it's effective and you may not be able to rely on the mileage interval. Once this starts, your car may start to exhibit one or more of the warning signs below.

Do you wonder how often should you get an oil change for your car? Call the experts at Elk River Tire & Auto and ask if they have oil change coupons.

A vital part of our vehicle that we often overlook in winter is the radiator. In cold temperatures, the coolant in the radiator freezes and expands, adding stress to the radiator. This can lead to cracks, which leads to leaks, resulting in damage to the transmission.

Damage to the radiator can cause a ripple effect throughout the car and make the car stop running completely. As strange as it may seem, an engine can overheat even during freezing temperatures. Don’t wait until this happens. What could have been a minor radiator repair can turn into a major radiator and possibly even a transmission job!

So how do you know if your radiator is bad?

Wondering how do you know if your radiator is bad? Schedule a radiator repair service at Elk River Tire & Auto before summer arrives.
