Why has my ABS light started flashing?

The ABS system uses sensors at each wheel to monitor their rotational speed. A computer monitors the signals from all four wheels and the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is stable and under control.

What does the Malfunction Indicator Light mean?
The Malfunction Indicator Light can signal three different types of problems.
Occasional flashes indicate temporary engine malfunctions. In this case, it is good to be aware of the possible forthcoming issues which can later on turn to more serious ones.
The most common case is when the indicator light stays on constantly. It indicates more serious problem that requires action to be taken; the sooner the better. Yet, sometimes the issues aren’t that serious but can affect the emissions of the vehicle, for example.
The most serious type of signaling is when the MIL flashes all the time. It is a sign that your vehicle’s engine is misfiring. The issue is a major one and you should stop the engine immediately to prevent serious damage. For instance, it might cause the catalytic converter to overheat and become damaged.

Oil changes Standard, synthetic and diesel-

If you run out of engine oil, your engine will seize almost instantly. This means that a sudden lose of oil pressure and lubrication means sudden death to your engine.
However you should get a low oil level indicator light (if your car comes equipped with it), or a low oil pressure light well
before you run out of oil

Electronic Stability Programme

The light on the dash could have multiple meanings so it is important to understand how your particular system works. Generally, the light will illuminate when the computer is actively trying to maintain control. This light will stay lit only while the vehicle is not under control. If the light stays on constantly, it is likely that a malfunction has been detected or the system has been shut off manually.

We can repair most GM Brake Lines
SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE 30,000…60,000…and 90,000 Miles

Besides the normal maintenance such as oil changes every 3,000 miles ( Synthetic longer) , there will be a maintenance schedule for 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000 miles as well.

One of the things that we definitely want from our automobile is for it to last.
Regularly scheduled maintenance is a must if you want your vehicle to keep getting you to the places you need to go. 
There are plenty of reasons you want to maintain your vehicle at regular intervals. First of all, not doing so simply means that you’re guaranteeing yourself some hefty repairs down the road. You rely on your vehicle to get you to and fro, your vehicle relies on you to keep it in healthy order.
Let’s not forget that you’ll probably end up selling your automobile later on. Having well kept records of a regularly maintained vehicle is the easiest way to insure that you’ll get back what the car is worth when it comes time to sell it.
