It’s important to bring your car in for regular maintenance tasks to keep it safe and reliable on the road. Patriot Auto Group offers three convenient car service center locations in and around Philadelphia, PA, and every day, we meet drivers who come to us with important service-related questions.  

Here are some of the most commonly-asked questions we receive.

Q: How Often Should I Change My Oil? 

A: Getting your oil changed is necessary for a variety of reasons. It’s important to have your oil changed every 5,000 to 7,000 miles to ensure your car is operating efficiently and not burning dirty gas.

Skipping out on oil changes can cause internal damage to your car’s engine, decrease fuel efficiency, and negatively impact your car’s overall reliability.  

Q: Do You Offer Vehicle Inspections? 

A: Yes! We offer vehicle inspections at all three of our service center locations. We recommend that drivers bring their cars in at least once per year for routine inspections. We also recommend that you schedule a vehicle inspection before taking a long road trip.  

These inspections allow our certified mechanics to inspect your vehicle from top to bottom. We will diagnose and fix any issues that you may or may not be aware of.

Q: Why is My Check Engine Light On? 

A: When your check engine light comes on, your vehicle is alerting you to an issue that needs to be addressed quickly. Check engine lights come on for a variety of reasons, such as when certain mechanical parts need to be replaced or even when your gas cap is loose.
