Seredni Tire and Auto Center, a 30-year mainstay in the automotive industry, keeps cars humming along thoroughfares with oil changes and tire rotations. Mechanics kick off the service by draining dirtied fluids, replacing them with up to five quarts of clean 5W-30 Mobil oil, and installing a filter to keep dirt from entering and the microscopic horses that power each car from escaping. A tire rotation promises a change of scenery to all four wheels for equalized tread wear before a 14-point safety inspection ferrets out potential hazards. During the check-up, trained techs seek out safety issues in the brakes, tap the tires for info, check belts, hoses, and fluid levels, and make sure the wiper blades are capable of clearing windshields of rain, snow, and kamikaze snowmen.
