Q?

Is checking and Change the oil important

A.

Check and change the oil. No single step will help an engine last more than regular oil and filter changes will. Conversely, nothing will destroy an engine faster than neglecting oil-level checks or fresh-oil changes.

Flush the cooling system and change coolant once a year. A 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water will keep the cooling system in good shape and prevent corrosion and deposits from building up inside the cooling system.

Are there other fluids that need changing

A.

Change out transmission and differential oils. While not requiring frequent service, these fluids must be changed according to service intervals.

Keep it clean. While washing the outside of the vehicle is obvious, most everything the vehicle ran over can also get stuck to the underside. Hosing off winter salt and road grime is a good idea.

Nothing keeps paint looking good and protected like a coat of quality wax. Apply wax at least every six months

Protect the interior plastic by parking the vehicle in the shade, using a window deflector screen, and applying a UV protectant to prevent the plastic and vinyl from drying out.

Q?

What should I do if the Check Engine Light comes on

A.

If the check engine light is solid this indicates that there is a problem with your emission control system. Your emissions system contains several sensors that reduce the amount of pollutants released into the air from your vehicle. It can be as simple as a loose gas cap to an oxygen sensor. An easy test is to remove and put back on your gas cap to make sure it is tight. If after a few days the check engine light stays on you will need to have a mechanic run a diagnostic test on it

A blinking light or red light usually indicates a severe engine misfire and should be addressed immediately by a trained Mechanic.
