Toyota Maintenance Lights - Ron Hibbard Toyota - Gallatin, TN


There are a number of automotive warning lights. While each light is designed with a specific purpose, all warning lights have one thing in common – to alert you of potential or immediate problems. Being a responsible car owner means knowing what each of these warning lights means, so if they flicker to life, you will know what to do. And when owning a car, you will definitely want to know what the glowing red thermometer symbol means before you witness steam pouring out from beneath your hood – especially when on a busy highway or in the middle of a traffic-filled intersection.


To maintain a long – and strong – relationship between you and your car, never ignore warning lights. While some lights may indicate small problems, others can mean serious repairs that need attention. So pay attention to your dash and learn some of the most important lights that may mean trouble for you and your car.


Brake System Alert

Symbol: exclamation mark inside of a circle.

The braking system is an essential part of your car. If it doesn't work properly, your level of safety plummets. If you encounter the brake system alert, this could mean a number of problems, such as:


  • Low brake fluid

  • Loss of hydraulic pressure

  • Leaks

  • Worn pads


With a system as important as the braking system, always take this warning light seriously. Have your car checked as soon as possible, especially if you notice any chances in how your brakes are working.


Temperature Light

Symbol: thermometer in water.


The engine resides under the hood of your car, and when running, it becomes very hot. While this is normal, there is at hing as too hot. If the temperature warning light turns on, it means engine coolant has risen above a specific temperature – a very dangerous problem. Continuing to drive with an overheating engine can lead to very expensive repairs, so to combat potential damage and high repair costs, stop driving immediately (or as soon as you can safely pull over). The most common cause of the temperature warning light is due to low coolant, so when the engine is cool, check your car's coolant level, adding more if necessary.


Oil Pressure Light

Symbol: jug/kettle-shaped container with a drop of liquid coming out of the spout.


Oil is essential the health of your car's engine. So driving with an inadequate supply of oil – or no oil at all – is a very detrimental situation. The oil pressure light typically occurs due to low engine oil pressure – or too little oil. Driving your car with insufficient oil pressure is never a good idea because it can lead to serious engine damage. If the oil pressure warning light appears while driving, pull over and turn off the engine as soon as possible. Then check the oil level, adding more if needed. If the oil level is fine, but your warning light stays on, don't assume it's just a warning light fluke. Instead, have your car inspected by a professional before driving it again in order to determine the problem.


Battery Light

Symbol: battery.


A car equipped with a bad battery typically means one thing – a dead car. If the battery warning light illuminates, there is a problem with your vehicles generator or charging system – a system designed to charge the battery when your car is running. If this system malfunctions, your battery will be drained of its charge and your car will stop running. If this light appears while driving, pull over as soon as possible, being sure to shut off all accessories to conserve power (A/C, heat, radio, lights, etc.). A trip to the mechanic will be required in order to have the problem identified and repaired.

Toyota Maintenance - Ron Hibbard Toyota - Gallatin, TN


Whether you opt for a new or used car, all vehicles require routine maintenance in order to stay in good running condition. To ensure your car continues to operate smoothly and provide you with reliability for years to come, here are the most important services to stay on top of.




Inside your car's engine, there are many parts that require motor oil in order to lubricate them so they will run smoothly and efficiently. Without a clean and efficient supply of oil, these inner engine parts will grind against each other – a problematic situation that results in damage and expensive repairs. While problems will occur with too little oil available to the engine, an engine with old, dirty oil also causes problems. Say you get an oil change. That's great! Now say you go a year or even longer before changing your oil again. That's not so great! This is because over time, oil becomes dirty and contaminated; it also loses its viscosity (thickness). Oil is also broken down due to heat produced by the engine. Oil that is dirty or too thin is unable to lubricate engine parts as well as it should. In turn, parts wear out faster.


While it is still a god rule of thumb to change your car's oil every three months or 3,000 miles, many modern vehicles can go much longer – upward of 5,000 or even 10,000 miles in fact. To know when your vehicle requires and oil change, use your owner's manual as a reference or ask a professional.


Air Filter


Just as your car's engine requires oil to run as it should, it also needs a continuous supply of oxygen. To help provide your engine with the necessary supply of air, your car contains an air filter that works to trap all dirty, debris and other potential problems so it doesn't get sucked into the engine. While air filters do a good job and keep air flow steady and clean, they don't last forever. Over time, they become so filled with dirt and debris that they become clogged, and a clogged air filter results in a blocked flow of air – a damaging problem for your engine. This being said, it is important to replace the air filter regularly.


How often you will need to change your air filter depends on two main factors:


  1. How many miles you drive per year.

  2. The atmospheric conditions your vehicle endures while driving.


Typically, air filters should be changed every 5,000 miles, however, you may be able to go 7,500 to 10,000 miles before requiring a new filter. The only reason you may need to change your air filter sooner is if you regularly drive in severe conditions, like on rural dirt roads or in urban areas with a lot of dust from construction.




It may seem odd, but tires are easy to overlook. Ask most drivers on the road and they'll more than likely agree. With our busy lives and daily concerns, it's easy to forget to give our tires a good once-over now and again. But this is definitely one maintenance service you should never overlook. Being the sole part of your car that has contact with the road, it makes sense to make sure they are in good condition before driving. While tires are very durable, just like everything else that makes up your car, they don't last forever. While some tires last 40- 50,000 miles, some may last much less or even more. Luckily, tires has built-in indicators that can help you know when your tires are in need of replacing. If you look between the treads of your tires, you will see tiny ridges that are 1/16 an inch high. When the tread becomes even with these ridges, it is time to invest in new tires.


Why 1/16 of an inch you may ask? This is the minimum safe tread depth for a typical on-road tire; it is also the minimum safe tread depth allowed by law in most states.


Along with checking the treads of your tires, it is also important to check them for wear and damage. To do this, simply run your hand over the treads – especially the inner and outer edges. If you feel any uneven ridges, waves or wires, it is time to have your tires checked – and replaced if necessary – by a professional.

Proper Tire Maintenance - Ron Hibbard Toyota - Gallatin, TN

New or used. Red or blue. Sedan or SUV. No matter how new or old a car is, or what color or body style it comes in, all vehicles require repairs at some point in time. Whether it's a patch on a tire, new brake pads or a battery replacement, repairs are commonplace when owning a car. But did you know that some automotive repairs are more common than others? Mechanics spend up to 90 percent of their time addressing a handful of common automotive ailments and conditions. Here's a look at the most common repairs your car is likely to encounter.


Brake Repairs


Squeaking. Squealing. Scratching. All of these are signs that your brakes are in need of attention. Whether you've only heard a squeak or two or you are hearing a loud scratching sound every time you press the brake pedal, you should never wait to have your brakes inspected. Waiting too long could set you up for brake failure and a high risk of injury, even death. Brake repairs make the list for one of the most common automotive repairs your car is likely to encounter. And, brake pad replacements are the most commonly performed brake system repair.

While some vehicles will need a new set of brake pads every 40,000 miles or less during their lifetime, some will require brake pads to be replaced more frequently, like those that do a lot of stop-and-go driving.


Battery Replacements


A dead battery means a dead car, which pretty much defeats the point of having a car at all. But, if you're a car owner, you have probably experienced a dead battery at least once. This being said, battery replacements are a very common automotive repair. Most car batteries are designed to last between four to six years before they will need to be replaced.


The biggest annoyance about the death of a car battery is that they give no warning as to when they are nearing the end of their life. Instead, they simply stop working cold turkey. As a result, you may be stuck somewhere when your battery finally goes kaput.


Tire Replacements


Just as brake pads become worn over time, so do tires. And worn tires mean decreased safety and the need for replacements. Tires face a number of risky problems on the road every day, like nails or other sharp debris, and even rough bumps and potholes. Problems like that can lead to punctured tires, as well as leaks and flats. To get the most out of your tires, it is important to inspect them regularly for damage or wear. You can also hep minimize wear by opting for regular tire rotations.


Fuel System Repairs


As common as it is to pump gas into your car, it is just as common to encounter fuel system problems. Okay, may not that common, but it's close. Problems with the fuel system can lead to repairs like a fuel pump replacement or fuel injector cleaning. Both can be very costly and require the expertise of a professional mechanic. Fuel system repairs are often seen in cars with over 50,000 miles and are often driven on less than a quarter tank of gas.


Transmission Repairs/Replacements


Transmission repairs and replacements are one of the most common – and worst – automotive repairs a car can encounter. This is because a bad transmission is not only a pain, but it is also extremely expensive. If your car encounters a bad transmission, be sure to have it repaired or replaced by a professional, because it is definitely not a job for a layman.

Toyota New and Used Service Parts - Ron Hibbard Toyota - Gallatin, TN


Are you a hands-on person? Do you like fixing things? To avoid the cost of labor and parts at a mechanic shop, many car owners are deciding to perform maintenance and repairs on their vehicles themselves. While this can save some money at times, what do you do if you are in need of a car part and have to decide between buying new or used? While buying used is the obvious choice when wanting to save money, is it the right choice? Continue reading to find out!


Pros and Cons of Used Car Parts


There are many pros to buying used car parts.  For example, they are less costly and can often times be just as good as new parts. But, while used auto parts can be a lifesaver at times, it's important to be very careful when shopping. One major concern when buying used parts is that if it doesn't work or doesn't fit as expected, you may not be able to take, or send, the part back. Before you take the plunge and invest in used auto parts, it's important to follow some general guidelines so you will hopefully avoid any potential problems.

1. Know what you need. Before you shop, be sure you know exactly what you need. Automotive parts can be tricky, and with one slight buying error, your part will be of no use to you. If possible, use your old part as a reference and compare it with the piece you are looking to buy.


2. Ask questions. Have you ever heard the phrase, there's no such thing as a stupid question? Well, it's true. Questions are very important in all situations, especially before making a purchase. Asking questions is the only way to ensure you get exactly what you need, so never shy away from doing so.


3. Check return policy. Depending on where you purchase your used auto parts will be the deciding factor in what type of return policy there will be. For example, buying at an auto shop typically means you will have a certain number of days to exchange or return an item for any reason. However, if you choose to buy your parts from an online seller, beware! In this situation you are taking a much bigger risk than if you were to buy from a reputable business. If the part doesn't work as intended, or ends up being the wrong part altogether, chances are you will not be able to return it for a refund.


4. Decide if buying used is the right choice for the particular repair. If you crack a taillight or break a motor mount, a used auto part is more than fine. In fact, it's the perfect low-cost solution to your problem. However, some parts should never be bought second-hand, like alternators, starters and brake rotors. Parts like these come with a certain lifespan, so buying them second-hand means you won't be able to use them for nearly as long as you would if you bought these parts new. This will also cause you to spend more money in the long run.
