Vehicle Fluids/Lights/Electrical Items/Tire Pressure

Fluids: It is your responsibility to monitor and maintain correct fluid levels. These include oil, coolant/antifreeze, windshield washer solvent, power steering fluid, and brake fluid.

Electrical: Check all lights and other electrical items for correct operation on a consistent basis.

Tires: Check tire pressure frequently, maintain tire pressure at 36 psi. Check for any unusual wear or damage.

2004 – 2007 vehicle when to change oil/filter/do tire rotation: Change oil every 6,000 miles. Tires should be rotated with every oil change. Oil change stickers are posted on the driver’s side. A sticker with the Righteous Rides logo will represent the correct oil change intervals. If a dealer writes mileage on the oil change sticker for anything other than 6,000 miles, change it to a 6,000-mile interval.

2013 or newer vehicle when to change oil/filter/do tire rotation: Change oil only when the change oil indicator light comes on, which is located on the dashboard. There is no need for an oil change sticker to be posted on the windshield. Tires should be rotated with every oil change. Miles traveled between oil change intervals can range from 3,000 to 10,000 miles.
