When should I get my oil changed?

Most conventional oil needs to be changed between 3,000-5,000 miles while synthetic oil can last for around 10,000 miles between changes. However, this depends on your vehicle and driving conditions - if you take a lot of short trips (under 10 miles), frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic, drive in extreme temperatures, or often tow a trailer, you'll need to change your oil more frequently. Consult your owner's manual for the recommended schedule.

When Should I Change My Tires?

The simplest way to check whether your tires' tread depth has worn down to unsafe levels is to take a penny and place it head-down in your tire's tread. If the top of Lincoln's head is visible, you need to replace your tires. If the top of Lincoln's head is obscured, your tires are still safe to use.

Why Should I Rotate My Tires Or Get My Wheels Aligned?

Both of these services are intended to help prevent excessive tire wear, and increase the lifespan of your tires. Because front tires tend to wear down faster, rotating tires swaps out which tires are in front. Getting your wheels aligned corrects the angle of your tires so they don't unnecessarily drag on the road if hitting a curb knocks them slightly crooked.

Why is My Check Engine Light Illuminated Or Blinking?

You should always bring your vehicle into the service center at Youngblood Kia if you see the check engine light lit up on the dashboard, but this light can signal many things, from very minor problems to very large ones. A solid light can mean anything from a loose gas cap to a failing catalytic converter, but a blinking light means that the engine is misfiring, which can require major repairs if not seen to immediately.

Why is my car making a squealing or grinding noise when I step on the brake?

Brake pads press on the brake rotors when you step on the brake pedal, which is how your car slows down and stops. But the constant friction wears down the brake pads. What you are hearing is likely the metal-on-metal sound of the calipers grinding on the rotors after the brake pads have grown too thin or worn through, requiring you to install new brake pads.
