Taking care of your car’s suspension is important, but many drivers tend to neglect it. Not only can untreated problems make things worse, they can also decrease your safety and driving ability. Stay safe and save money by watching for these common signs that you need suspension repair.

Rough Ride
One of the most common indicators of worn shocks or struts is a rough ride. If you feel like every dip in the road is an enormous pothole or your vehicle won’t stop bouncing around, you probably need new shocks or struts. Not only do they make driving on rough roads much more bearable, they help you stop quickly.

Uneven Tire Tread
Do you already see wear on your new tires? Are certain areas wearing more than others? Uneven tire wear is a common result of suspension problems. Whether your car is bouncing too much or out of alignment, you should have it checked quickly before wasting more money on tires! Often a result of worn shocks or struts or poor alignment, uneven tire wear can sometimes indicate a more serious problem.

Clunking Sounds
Do you hear clunking or knocking sounds under your vehicle, especially when making a turn? Does your car pull or steer poorly? This often indicates a worn ball joint or other suspension problem. Such problems can increase your chances of a rollover and decrease your steering ability, so don’t neglect repairs!

Signs That You Should Check Your Oil

Do you remember the last time you changed your oil? If you skipped your last scheduled oil change, you should get to a mechanic quickly. Saving money on an oil change isn’t worth ruining your engine! Watch out for these signs that you should check your oil.

You Don’t Remember Your Last Oil Change
Perhaps one of the biggest signs that you should check your oil is not remembering when you last did so. Most vehicles go approximately 5,000 miles between oil changes, though your car may differ. This roughly translates to every 6 months, but could be more or less depending on how often you drive. Where you drive and how you drive can also affect how quickly your car needs an oil change. It’s best to follow the guideline set by your manufacturer for your specific model.

Your Engine is Especially Loud
When there is not enough lubricant or oil in your engine, your engine might run louder. This comes from various parts grinding or rubbing instead of moving smoothly. If you notice that your engine seems louder than usual, take a look at your oil to see if it is low. Other unusual noises from your engine may be cause for concern and you should inspect it or take it to an auto shop.

Your Engine Light is On
No one likes to see their engine light come on, especially if they can’t figure out why. The first things you should check when this happens are the gas cap and oil level. Modern vehicles will trigger a sensor if the fuel cap is not properly secured, and some have oil lights that are separate from the check engine light. Read your owner’s manual to learn which dashboard light indicates a problem with your oil.
