Just like your laptop or cell phone, brakes can also overheat. The pressure applied to brake pads generates the friction needed to either slow down or to stop your car entirely, depending on how much force you apply to the brake pedal.

Whether you’re stopping every few feet in bumper-to-bumper traffic or merely coasting to a halt at a four-way stop—your brakes are working hard to generate friction. Where there’s friction, there’s heat. Overheated brakes can show themselves in a few different ways, through different sights, smells, and sensations.

When it comes to most diesel vehicles, the recommended service period is about every 3,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. However, this service interval can differ quite significantly depending on the make and model of your car, as well as how much you drive. Driving short distances on a regular basis can cause oil in diesel cars to accumulate gunk or other contaminants farily quickly. It can be tricky to determine when to bring your car in for servicing.

So how often should a diesel car be serviced? Here are five key signs that a service is due on your diesel car.

The answer to this question is mainly determined by the performance of your vehicle. Is it lacking power when trying to go up a hill or passing a slower vehicle? Has a dashboard light come on and you don’t know why? Summer is just around the corner. It would be wise to get a car tune up now to make sure your vehicle makes it safely through the hot summer days ahead.

The tune-up checklist should include both preventative and restorative engine assessments, including an inspection of the engine, an analysis of your vehicle’s performance, and any needed adjustments made to the operating systems. How often should you tune up your car? What may be required during a car tune up will vary from vehicle to vehicle, based on age, mileage and unique manufacturer recommendations for that vehicle.

Wondering how often should you tune up your car? Make an appointment with your auto repair technician to run car diagnostics to pinpoint any potential issues.
