We asked our technicians at Kwik Kar Auto Center in Irving to share the most common questions they hear on a daily basis. Chances are you’re wondering about the same questions about oil changes and state inspections.
Texas state car inspections check various aspects of your vehicle to ensure it meets state emissions and safety standards.
Your inspection will include emissions, lights, brakes, steering, suspension, seatbelts, horn, tire tread, windshield wipers, and your exhaust system.
When getting an oil change, your choice is between a conventional or synthetic oil change. This decision is what we base your oil change cost on.
Not sure of which type of oil you need? It all depends on your driving conditions. If you travel on flat terrain or standard stop and go traffic, a conventional oil change will be your most affordable option.
Synthetic oil is necessary for better performance or newer cars like the Prius that are designed to work on synthetic oil. Keep in mind that a synthetic oil change could cost between 2 and 4 times more than a conventional change.
The average oil change can take between 20 minutes and an hour. The duration of your oil change depends on your vehicle’s type, the oil used, and the experience of the service location.
Oil changes are a critical part of owning a vehicle. Oil changes ensure your engine remains lubricated, preventing friction and wear, and regulating heat temperature.
Oil changes also clean your engine and help you make the most of your fuel economy as your engine doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your car moving.
With so many mechanics throughout Texas, it can be tough to find one that you can rely on. However, checking online reviews, getting recommendations from prior customers, reviewing certifications, and visiting the shop can help you get a better idea of your mechanic’s reliability.
A shaking steering wheel could be the sign of a serious problem like unbalanced tires or problems with your steering system. You should not drive with a shaking steering wheel.
If you notice your steering wheel shakes on the road, take your vehicle into Irving’s Kwik Kar for an inspection and repair.
