To help get you started, our certified service experts have come up with five important questions that are crafted to help you maximize your car's performance this season when you need it most:

When should I replace my wiper blades?

Before hitting the roads this winter in Monroe, UT, you must take some time to inspect your wiper blades diligently. Because your wiper blades are not indestructible, several contributing factors can cause your wiper blades to wear down, and in some cases, break completely. For maximum safety, we advise that you check your wiper blades at the end of each season to inspect them for any major damages. If you notice that your wiper blades are frayed or are not attached to the arms on your windshield properly, then it is a clear indication that you will need to replace them right away.

How do I know when it's time to change the oil in my car?

Changing the oil in your vehicle is an easy routine service, one that you could very well perform at home by yourself, but how do you know when it's time to do so? Aside from noticing your check engine light coming on, it's wise to listen to the sound of your engine while in idle and also while driving to listen for any obnoxious noises or squeaking. Fresh motor oil allows your engine to run smoothly and stay lubricated, so if you notice your engine sticking or running irregularly, a good first place to look is your oil pan. Also, using the oil dipstick under the hood of your vehicle is an easy way to visually inspect the level and quality of your motor oil.

What can I do to test the quality of my tires?

Your tires are arguably one of the most important operating features on your vehicle, and without properly functioning tires, your vehicle will not be able to handle the roads even when the conditions are perfect. To test the quality of your tires at home, run your hand along the outside of your tires and feel for adequate tread. If you notice any bald spots or areas where there appear to be some damages, you'll want to address the situation. In most cases, rotating your tires will help evenly distribute the wear and alleviate the problem, but if the damage is bad, you'll want to have new tires installed on your vehicle right away.

How often should I inspect inside of my engine bay?

Under the hood of your vehicle inside the engine bay acts as the central nervous system of your car, truck, or SUV. Drivers should be periodically checking underneath the hood, especially if you ever hear any loud or grinding sound coming from inside the bay. In order for your vehicle to operate properly, your car's fluid tanks must be filled to sufficient levels and with the correct fluid to ensure that your system is healthy. We recommend popping open your hood and inspecting your engine bay every few weeks to get a good understanding of what needs attention and what fluid reservoirs need tending to. To help you when you least expect it, it's also a good idea to keep extra fluid on hand in the case of an emergency.

When do I know it's time to replace my spark plugs?

Your engine's spark plugs live in the head of your engine underneath everything that you see when you pop open your hood. For help locating your spark plugs, refer to your owner's manual or have one of the service experts here at Jorgensen Ford take a look at them for you. Refer to your owner's manual for information regarding routine maintenance and at what time interval you should be replacing your spark plugs.
