You may be wondering if your vehicle has an air filter or cabin air filter. Yes, every vehicle has an air filter and most of your vehicles will have a cabin air filter! The vehicle's air filter prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering the vehicle's engine. The vehicle's cabin filter prevents dust, pollen, dirt and other pollutants from entering the vehicle through the vehicle's A/C and heat vents. We recommend to change the air filter every 15,000 miles or once a year. If you drive in more severe environments (dusty areas) we recommend to check the air filter more often. We recommend the cabin air filter to be changed once a year as well. Call us today to schedule an appointment to have us check your filters

Oil changes are an important routine maintenance. For these newer cars with such infrequent oil change recommendations, we still suggest getting your oil changed every 5,000-7,500 miles. Why? Think of oil in your vehicle like your body and water. Our bodies are 60% water. There's always H2O streaming through us. Yes, we can go a few days without it, but it is still important to replenish ourselves and stay hydrated since we lose that water in different ways. However, the longer we go without water, the more our body starts to shut down and not cooperate. The same goes with our vehicles. Oil is constantly pumping throughout the vehicle and its engine. Our job, as the user, is to maintain the oil so that it's always clean and at the level it needs to be. Yes, the vehicle could last months on end without changing the oil, but in the meantime the oil is getting more and more dirty, sludge-like, and building up particles. The more dirty the oil gets, the wo ... read more

The cold weather is here and not leaving for a few more months. With the cold weather you may notice your tire pressure light popping up on your dash. If you feel your vehicle pulling to one way, either the left or right, start with checking your tire pressure. The tire pressure can decrease about 1 PSI for every 10 degrees the temperature changes. To get the correct tire pressure for your vehicle, as they are different for every make and model, check the plaque on the driver's side door jam. Be sure to not under inflate or over inflate the tire as that can cause uneven wear on your tires as well. Stop in at Bob's Main Street Auto and we will be happy to assist you with checking your tire pressure in each tire.
