Car Maintenance FAQs

Anyone who has ever dabbled in DIY auto repair can tell you: you’re probably going to have some questions (and say some swear words) along the way.

Our family has been in the automotive business for a long time and, throughout the years, we’ve noticed that customers often have questions about the same things. To save you time and make us look smart, we created this all-in-one resource filled with answers to the most common questions we hear, or have dealt with ourselves.

Read on for helpful tips and tutorials from our team of automotive experts on everything from the dreaded check engine light to brakes, DIY oil changes, wipers, batteries, changing your tires, and more. There are no stupid questions. There are, however, bad DIY jobs—and we’d really like it if your car didn’t blow up.
