Oil Change Tips

Having your oil changed is one of the most common types of auto repair and vehicle maintenance that you will encounter. The oil in your engine is an important factor in cooling, lubricating and protecting. When your engine is running, various metal components are constantly moving. The oil helps to keep these parts cool and lubricated so that they don't cause any unnecessary damage. When it comes to having your oil changed, it's important to do it every 5,000 miles or so. If you go past this point, your motor oil may start to become thick and dirty which will cause your engine to not run as efficient. With old vehicles, you have to worry about oil leaks and having a lack of oil can be detrimental to all the components. For quality Ford service in Indianapolis, come to Capitol City Ford today.

Knowing When To Change Your Tires     

Tires can be one of the components of your vehicle that doesn't get a lot of attention unless they are flat. Though, keeping a close eye on your tires can help prevent that from happening at all. Tires can go flat from there being a lack of tread on them. The best way to check your tread is by placing a penny face down into the grooves. If you see any part of Lincoln's head, it's time to replace them. Other signs that your tires could go flat or not have enough tread include the ability to see the metal wires that make up the interior of the tire or if they are completely bald. Having tires with the right amount of tread and air in them can make a huge difference and could even help improve your gas mileage.
