All modern vehicles are now equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). Each tire on your vehicle has sensors in it that send the tire’s pressure to a central computer. When that tire pressure is too high or too low, a warning light will illuminate on your dashboard, which lets you know that the tire pressure needs to be corrected.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Not only does the tire pressure monitoring system prevent premature tire wear, but it also makes your car more fuel efficient and provides a smooth driving experience. How so? For every 3 pounds of pressure lost in a tire, you lose 1% of your fuel economy. Moreover, the TPMS provides assistance in preventing flats, overheating and even tire blowouts.
The tire pressure monitoring system needs very little maintenance, besides the occasional replacement of the sensors. However, there is a good chance you could break a sensor when you change your tires between seasons. That is why it is best to leave that job to one of our certified technicians at Oxford Automotive in Ohio.
Additionally, when new sensors are installed on a set of spare tires or a sensor is replaced, the technician at one of our three auto repair shops in Ohio, located in Delaware, Powell and Westerville, can synchronize the tire pressure monitoring system with the central computer.
