Computers and tire rotation

Do you have a computer in your car? Chances are that if your car was manufactured after 1995, it is hooked into a computer. This computer will need to be checked and reconfigured by a mechanic in order to help you monitor your car through the dashboard. For instance, the wheels of your tire are most likely connected to a tire pressure monitoring system.

This computer system gives you an idea if you are losing pressure in one of your tires which can cause you to get low gas mileage.  When tires are rotated, a mechanic will need to readjust the tire pressure monitoring system with specialized equipment before you get back on the road.

Do you have the proper tools?

In some cases, people will decide to attempt to do their own tire rotation. On occasion, this can be done safely, but there is no way for most non-mechanics with a jack and a torque wrench to get the job done right every time.

In general, this is considered unsafe to do this task DIY because the margin for error is too high. Plus, if your car was manufactured after 2008, DIY will be impossible. To do tire rotation on a car made after 2008, a mechanic must have a scan tool that can reset the tire pressure monitoring system.
