Don’t worry if you can’t make it in before Thanksgiving and you are going out of town. Just be sure to take the time to CHECK your oil level. With the car cold, remove the dipstick and wipe clean. Replace the dipstick for a few seconds and remove again. Check the level of oil. It should fall between the two lines or dots marked on the stick. If it is below that level you should add some oil. Only pour in a half a quart at a time. Too much oil is worse than not enough.
Check your tire pressure at an air pump at any service station. You tires should be between 35 and 38 lbs. of pressure. This level will ensure a comfortable ride and give you good mileage and even treadwear.
