When you need an oil change, call the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire.
You were headed home from Paradigm Gardens when you noticed your oil change light had come on. You'd like to ignore the pesky thing because you've got so much else to do but you're wondering it that's wise.
It is definitely not wise to ignore it. Changing your oil regularly is perhaps the easiest and one of the least expensive bits of auto care you can perform that will help keep your car on the road for many thousands of miles. Besides, an oil change can act as a reminder to perform other needed preventive maintenance, like rotating your tires. It's also convenient to get two or more New Orleans auto care chores done at the same time.
"A good time to rotate your tires is when you get the oil changed, assuming you do that at least once a year and more often if you drive, say, more than 10,000 miles annually," cars.com says. "Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that the tires be rotated on the same schedule as oil changes."
Cars.com adds, "The tires mounted on the drive wheels of any vehicle perform extra duty because they apply the power to the pavement. On front-wheel-drive vehicles that is amplified by the weight of the engine and transmission, and because the front tires do most of the work in turns. Rotating the tires between front and rear a couple of times a year spreads out the burden so they wear evenly."
