Keep Your Owner’s Manual Close!. Maintenance reminder systems and your owner’s manual go hand in hand. We know you’re all excited about taking that gorgeous new car home, but you need to remember that you will have to maintain it in a timely fashion in order to keep it operating as new as possible and to ensure your safety. Sometimes all we think we need to do is put gas in the tank and drive. We think we can just toss that silly owner’s manual because we have all the technology that’ll tell us when our vehicle needs servicing. Don’t toss it away yet – it’s actually got a great deal of important information in it. For instance, let’s take a look at the oil life monitoring system – its display gives a recommendation on varying engine computer data that includes distance, time, trip durations, calculated engine loads, number of starts and stops and ambient and engine temperatures. Not all vehicles have an oil life monitoring system (OLM). Different vehicles operate differently with OLM systems. While some may allow you to scroll through and investigate the problems, others don’t and they only alert you when it’s time to go for servicing. Your owner’s manual will have the information about how your OLM operates, so it would be a good idea to take a look at it when you get your car. It would save you the trouble of having to get your car’s warranty to take care of it, if your car fails on you. To avoid all these problems (and trust us, you want to avoid them), go through your owner’s manual and work according to its instructions. If you are already experiencing issues related to that, you’ve found the right folks!
