There are a few differences between diesel and standard vehicles—power, price, fuel, efficiency, and noise.  Even though there is still controversy in the auto industry regarding oil changes, the basic oil change recommendation is still 3,000 miles or three months for gas-powered vehicles. The average recommendation for diesel oil changes is between every 5,000-7,000 miles or every six months. For the best advice, refer to your owner’s manual and check out “normal” driving conditions vs. “severe” driving conditions.

As you know, gasoline-powered vehicles use engine oil for lubrication and cooling of the engine. Although diesel engines use oil for basically the same reasons, it is a little more intensive:

The auto technicians at our auto shop want to remind drivers to keep up with basic car maintenance. Some drivers wonder are brakes included in regular vehicle maintenance? Although brakes don’t have a specific time or mileage interval, it is important to have the condition of your brakes checked frequently. For example, when you visit an auto shop for regular car maintenance (such as an oil change or tire rotation), ask for a brake inspection at the same time. Your mechanic can then let you know how many more miles your brakes will last.

There are four major reasons why it is important to keep up with the car maintenance schedule:

Most vehicle owners understand that if you keep your car long enough, at some point in time, they will be faced with brake repair. This may simply entail replacing the brake pads. Some brake components can be cleaned, lubricated, or resurfaced instead of replacing them, such as “resurfacing” the rotors. These simple brake repairs will keep your brakes working properly so that you are driving as safely as possible.

Because there usually isn’t a stated schedule for brake repair, how do you know when your brakes are going bad, you ask? The time it takes for the braking components (such as pads, rotors, and calipers) to wear out depends largely on your driving habits and road conditions. Ask your mechanic to inspect your brakes about every 5,000-7,000 miles (or at every oil change). This inspection should include measuring the thickness of the brake pad, the condition of the rotors, and the calipers, and cleaning and lubricating all the components to make sure that everything is moving freely.

The signs below are indicators that it’s time for brake repair:
