In Pennsylvania the sticker on your front windshield indicates when you need to have your inspection completed. In this example of 6/17 the “PA inspection” needs to be completed by 6/31/17. You can have this completed as early as 4/1/17. There is a 90 day window prior to the expiration date that you can complete the “inspection”. There is NO grace period in PA. If you drive when your car has expired inspection you could be subject to a fine from the police.
Improperly inflated tires are nearly impossible to detect with your eye. To properly check tire pressure you must use a gauge. Leaks and temperature change are the most common reason for tire under inflation. Additionally all tires will lose pressure over time. Underinflated tires can’t maintain shape and become flatter than intended while in contact with the road. If a vehicle’s tires are underinflated by as little as 6 psi it can lead to tire failure. Additionally, tread life could be diminished by as much as 25%. Lower inflation pressure will allow the tire to deflect as it rolls. This movement will create internal heat, increase resistance and cause a reduction in fuel economy. The difference could be up to 5%. You will experience a significant loss of steering precision and cornering stability. While this minor amount of pressure doesn’t seem excessively low, remember, it usually represents about 20% of the tire’s recommended pressure.

Synthetic motor oil has many benefits over conventional motor oil. Synthetic motor oil resists breakdown and sludging much better than conventional. Synthetic oil can flow better cold and withstand more heat. With out doubt synthetic oils outperform conventional oils, although these benefits come at a cost. High quality synthetics can cost twice as much as conventional. Added benefits to offset this cost are the increased protection/performance, longer service intervals and less down time for your vehicle.
