• If your brake pads are worn, you’ll hear a screeching sound when pushing the brake pedal

Brake Pads

• Important to keep braking system at optimal working condition
• Worn brake pads reduce the effectiveness of your braking and could potentially cause collisions
• Durable and long-lasting brake pads result in better car performance and less maintenance

Spark Plugs

• Spark plugs ignite the air and fuel mixture to get your vehicle moving
• If you have trouble starting your vehicle, spark plugs are a common reason
• If your vehicle accelerates slowly, then it could also be due to spark plugs

Air Filter

• Decreased miles per gallon is a common sign of a clogged filter
• Generally need to replace the air filter every 15,000 miles

Oil Filter

• Oil filters help to remove contaminants from the car engine’s oil
• Often replaced whenever your oil is changed
• If you drive in severe conditions like stop-and-go traffic or need to tow heavy objects, then you’ll need to replace your oil filter more frequently

Pollen Filter

• Pollen filter helps to keep the air in your vehicle clean
• Recommended to be replaced every 30,000 miles, but can change depending on driving conditions and the manual
• Needs frequent replacements if you drive close to lots of trees and foliage

Fuel Filter

• Removes dust, dirt and rust particles from your fuel
• Filters clog up over time, causing the fuel pump to work harder
