Tips for Battery Care
Car batteries are rechargeable, and it’s a good idea to carry jumper cables or a mobile car battery charging system in your car in case of emergencies. You never know when you will need to jump start your vehicle, or even assist another motorist in need. When your car battery has reached its lifespan, recycle it properly. Car battery recycling can minimize the resources needed for producing new car batteries and prevents dangerous chemicals from polluting landfills due to inappropriate disposal.

Auto Repair FAQS
What service warranties do you offer?
We at Jensen Tire & Auto are proud to offer one of the best service warranties in the industry. Our minimum warranty for any repair is 90 days or 4,000 miles, whichever comes first. Visit our warranties page for more information.
Should I use synthetic oil?
Some manufacturers recommend using synthetic oil in their vehicles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to determine if is recommended for your vehicle.
Why change transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is an internal lubricant just like engine motor oil. During certain driving conditions and mileage intervals, transmission fluid, because of wear and age, can break down and become contaminated. This may result in costly transmission repairs and possibly the need for replacement. As a general rule the transmission fluid and, in some instances, the transmission filter should be replaced at 25,000-mile intervals. You should always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended service intervals.
When should my belts be changed?
You should begin checking your vehicle's belts at 20,000 miles. Things to look for include cracks, splits, glazing, peeling, greasy buildup, and splitting or missing sections. It you notice any of these conditions you should arrange to have all of your vehicle's belts simultaneously changed out. If a serpentine belt breaks, many other components including your vehicle's alternator, water pump, power steering, etc., will not function, resulting in further damage and costly repairs.
