You should check your Owner’s Manual to be sure. Most manufacturers recommend changing the air filter every 20,000 – 24,000 kilometers (12,000 – 15,000 miles).
How often should my tyres be rotated?
To maximise the life of your tyres and ensure their best performance, you should have them rotated every 10,000 – 13,000 kilometres (6,000 – 8,000 miles).
How often should I change the oil in my car?
Different vehicle manufacturers have different recommendations about when to change the oil. Most experts agree that it is best to have oil replaced every 5,000 kilometres (3,000 miles.)
Why does my car’s oil warning light come on?
The oil warning light can come on for different reasons including low oil levels, a faulty oil pump, a faulty pressure sensor, an impeded flow in the circulation system or having too much foam build-up in the oil. It helps to have your vehicle checked by a mechanic when this light comes on.
My car smokes when I start it. What does that mean?
If the smoke is blue or blue/black, your car might be burning oil along with the fuel. That usually happens because of worn piston rings or using an oil of insufficient viscosity. If the smoke is white, you might have a coolant leak. And if the smoke is black, your car might be burning excessive amounts of fuel.
