That today's high performance, detergent based motor oils regularly last up to 6,000 miles, instead of the old standard 3,000 miles.
When motor oil turns dark, it doesn't mean that it's time for a change, it actually indicates that the oil is working. Modern motor oils turn dark over time because they suspend harmful dirt particles found in your engine. You should change your oil based on mileage instead of color.
You should always keep service records and receipts that show your vehicle's oil change history, especially if you purchase products yourself and perform services at home.

That each month, 3 out of 4 drivers wash their cars, while only 1 out of 7 correctly checks tire pressure. That's only 15% of all car drivers.
Tires can lose up to one pound per square inch, or psi, per month under normal conditions. Additionally, tires can lose one psi for every 10 degree Fahrenheit temperature drop.
A quick and easy test to check the inflation of your tires is to place an upside down penny in your treads. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your treads are worn and need replacing.
You can look for your manufacturer's recommended air pressure listed on the sticker of your vehicle's door jamb or owner's manual.
For maximum mileage, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles and follow correct rotational patterns.
There are multiple ways to rotate tires; four wheel drive systems, front and rear wheel drive systems, and directional tread tires all require unique rotational patterns.
