How often should I change my oil in my car?
You should follow the maintenance schedule in your vehicle’s owners guide for recommended intervals between oil changes. If you do not have access to a maintenance schedule, the rule of thumb is to change your oil about every 5000 miles, your mileage may vary. The key is to keep your oil changed regularly to avoid undue wear on your engine.

If you use a fully synthetic or synthetic blend of oil, then you can go a longer period between oil changes as synthetic oil does not break down like regular oil does. Please consult with us when you visit us.

Why Should I Rotate My Tires Every 5000 Miles?
To prevent excessive wear to your tires, San Ramon Auto Repair recommends that you should rotate your tires every 5000 miles. Front tires wear differently than rear tires. Front wheels are the turning wheels, they are more susceptible to unusual wear patterns which is why they should be rotated to the rear on a regular basis.

Why Should I Change My Anti-Freeze Regularly?
Changing your anti-freeze on a regular basis helps keep your engine running at its optimal temperature. Over time anti-freeze can break down and start corroding the inside of your cooling system causing internal damage to cooling components such as the water pump.
How Often Should I Change My Anti-Freeze?
You should follow the maintenance schedule in your vehicle’s owners guide for recommended intervals between radiator flushes. If you do not have access to a maintenance schedule, San Ramon Auto Repair recommends as little at 50,000 miles to as much as 150,000 miles. The key is to change your anti-freeze regularly to avoid undue wear on cooling system components. If you bring your car to us for regular oil change, we will take care of that for you.
Why Should I Change My Spark Plugs?
The electrodes on the end of a spark plug start to burn and break down over time. It is recommended to change your spark plugs and spark plug wires per your vehicle’s maintenance schedule for the optimum spark and best efficiency for your engine.

Most of the time spark plugs are all that are required, but occasionally, the spark plug wires should be inspected for any damage or indication that they may need replacement. Since most vehicles go 100,000 miles between spark plug changes, we recommend replacing the spark plug wires at the time you replace the spark plugs.

Why Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
The most important thing you need your vehicle to do is STOP! If your brakes are squealing every time you stop it could mean that it’s time to replace them. It may also mean that they are just dirty which can cause brakes to squeal. Bring your car to San Ramon Auto Repair, and we will do a through inspection of your brakes.
