Below you’ll find a few examples of some minor vehicle issues that are commonly encountered, and what you can do to fix these issues.
Before you call one of our trucks, please consider the following:
How to Check Oil Level
A car that is running low on engine oil won’t go very far at all. Engine oil keeps the moving parts in your engine such as pistons lubricated, and absorbs the heat generated by these internal parts. Without an adequate supply of engine oil, your car will quickly overheat and will likely break down. Changing your engine oil isn’t very easy to do, especially if you haven’t done it before, but checking the oil level, and topping off your supply can easily be done on your own. To do this, you first need to find the oil dipstick which is usually located beside the engine block. Remove it, wipe it clean, and replace it again. Once you’ve done this, you can pull the dipstick again and check the oil level indicated on the bottom of the dipstick. If you feel comfortable, and have the proper type of engine oil for your car (which is indicated on the engine oil cap found on your engine block, listed as 5w-30 or 10w-30) simply pour about half the bottle of oil into the engine, then recheck the level with the dipstick to see if you require more.
How to Change a Tire:
While most new cars come with a spare tire and changing kit, it seems like fewer and fewer vehicle owners know how to change a flat tire. To begin, make sure the car is in park with the e-brake engaged and use the wrench provided to loosen the lug nuts holding your damaged tire on the vehicle, but do not remove them completely. Once you’ve loosened the lug nuts, its time to jack up the car. The key to properly jacking up the car is to find the slot on the car’s frame where your jack goes. This will allow the car to be lifted safely, without damaging the body. Once you crank the jack up high enough, you can remove the lug nuts completely, and replace your damaged tire with the temporary one in your car. If you have trouble removing or tightening the lug nuts by hand, simply use your foot to turn the wrench with more leverage.
