How Does Driving Impact Your Engine?

Your driving habits can have a big impact on your vehicle's lifespan, especially when it comes to your maintenance needs. If you make lots of short drives and frequent stops your vehicle may encounter different issues than if you make lots of long highway drives, and vice versa. Our team can help you determine how this should impact your service schedule.

Additionally, bad habits like revving the engine unnecessarily, driving until the low fuel light comes on, or accelerating hard before the engine has a chance to warm up, can all take a toll on your engine.

What's the Best Way to Protect Your Engine?

Routine maintenance, particularly oil and filter changes, is the #1 recommendation of our Gladewater service center. By changing your oil regularly, switching your air filter, and coming in for new spark plugs when you're due, you get a big leg up compared to ignoring your vehicle's maintenance needs.

What Is Your Engine Telling You?

Your vehicle's primary way of communicating with you is through the lights on your dash, which are designed to alert you of the need for maintenance or attention under the hood.

All lights should be addressed by a professional in our shop as soon as possible, but keep in mind that the colors do matter. While yellow or orange lights require attention as soon as you can schedule an appointment, a red light indicates a serious issue and needs to be addressed immediately.

Additionally, keep an eye–and ear–out for signs of trouble under the hood. Puddles or spots where you park can indicate a leak, while a change in your vehicle's sounds can be early warning signs that something's not quite right in the engine bay.
