Service FAQs | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

How Often do I Need an Oil Change?

The intervals between oil changes vary based on the kind of vehicle you drive and factors like age, mileage, and purpose. Depending on these variables, oil changes may be needed anywhere between every 3,000 miles and every 10,000 miles.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Fresh, clean engine oil and a clean filter are critical for keeping your engine healthy. Engine oil lubricates parts and helps regulate temperature, preventing overheating or damage to components. If your engine oil gets too dirty, it puts more stress on the engine and makes it harder to do its job.

What Fluids Does My Vehicle Need Besides Oil?

Your vehicle depends on a variety of fluids to run properly. Coolant keeps your engine from overheating, so it’s a good idea to check the levels at least once a month. Check your windshield wiper fluid regularly as well. Other fluids to be aware of include power steering fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. When you visit Avery Greene Honda for service, we’ll inspect all your vehicle’s key fluids and make sure they’re topped off at the recommended levels.

Why Do I Need To Get My Tires Rotated?

Tires wear down differently depending on their position on your vehicle. Regular rotation ensures that all four tires accumulate the same level of tread wear. This makes it safer to drive and extends the life of your tires, saving you money in the long run.

Do My Tires Need Air Even If They Don't Look Flat?

Just because your tires look inflated doesn’t mean they’re properly inflated. You should regularly check your tires to make sure they have the proper amount of pressure as suggested in your owner’s manual. Underinflation even by a few PSI can reduce fuel economy and increase wear.

Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

A lit check engine light can be caused by any number of issues, including something as small as a loose gas cap. Typically, a flashing engine light indicates a problem that requires immediate attention. But no matter the cause, a lit check engine light means you should bring your vehicle to Avery Green Honda for a diagnosis.

How Do I Know If My Brakes Need Service?

If there’s a soft, spongy feel when you press the brake pedal, your brakes need immediate service. A grinding or squealing sound indicates that your brake pads are worn. If your steering wheel vibrates, this is also a warning sign. Even if your brakes feel fine, be sure to follow the service schedule in your owner’s manual.

Why Won't My Car Start?

If your car won’t start, a few of the most common culprits include a dead battery, a defective alternator, or a failed starter or ignition switch. Worn-out spark plugs, a clogged fuel filter, or a bad timing belt could also be to blame.
