Answers To Your Frequently Asked Questions...



I want to buy a used car. How many miles is too many?


When is the last time the car seen by a good mechanic? How often was the oil changed? What oil was used? What repairs have been to it? How much rust is there and where? How long will you be able to drive the car before needing to put several thousand dollars of repairs into it? These and other questions must be asked and answered. Have the car put onto lift - up in the air - and thoroughly check over by a competent mechanic. Not just driving or just looked at under the hood... but inspected closely by a competent mechanic who you trust. Maintenance is cheaper than a repair.


How often do I REALLY need to change my engine oil?


How often should you change your engine oil? That hasn't change in years. 3 months or 3 miles. Whether you're using synthetic oil or not. Due in part to environmental reasons, the oil properties of today are NOT as efficient as they were in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Frequent oil changes will extend the life of your engine. Maintenance is Cheaper than a Repair
