Honolulu's Experts Share Basic Auto Maintenance Tips All Drivers Should Know, Honolulu, Hawaii

To prolong the lifespan of your vehicle, it’s important to be familiar with some basic auto maintenance habits. The experts at Priam’s Automotive Service & Repair, based in Honolulu, recognize getting the best performance out of your vehicle involves knowing how to properly care for your car. For major jobs, like engine repairs and a thorough vehicle inspection, they’re on hand to deliver reliable service.

In the meantime, they encourage their clients to understand these auto maintenance processes:

  • How To Check Tire Pressure: Many people drive on underinflated tires without even knowing it. This can severely impact your gas mileage, as well as your ability to properly turn and brake. Luckily, checking your tire pressure is as simple as consulting the manual to know what the recommended pressure is, removing the cap to inflate the tires, and using a pressure gauge to ensure you’re where you need to be.
  • Auto-Maintenance-Honolulu-HIChecking Your Oil: Though you may have a basic idea of how long you can drive your vehicle before getting an oil change, it’s still a good idea to know how to check it yourself. Periodically making sure your oil level isn’t too low is key to effective auto maintenance. You may not know how to change your oil, but you should have a schedule in place to bring your car in for service.
  • Identifying Brake Pad Issues: You shouldn’t change your brake pads on your own; however, you should be able to identify any issues with your brake pads. If you hear a light squealing noise when applying the brakes, for example, you should know not to ignore it.

In addition to these tips, it’s also important to schedule a regular vehicle inspection. By letting the team at Priam’s Automotive Service & Repair take a closer look at your car, you can be confident you’re safe out on the road. Contact them online for more information, or call (808) 537-1919.
