Keeping your vehicle in the most ideal driving condition is important. Without a properly operating vehicle, you may have an unexpected breakdown or be stranded somewhere. Pay attention for any odd sounds, noises, smells, or how it handles, because you will notice an issue this way. By noticing an issue at the first sign, you can help prevent further problems in the long run. Make sure that your vehicle is in regularly for proper maintenance inspections. These include things like oil changes, tires rotations, and fluid flushes. If you are not sure how often to bring your vehicle in, we can advise you on it.
The oil should be inspected based on the recommended intervals by the manufacturer or us. Oil changes help keep the engine operating in the best condition it can. This keeps the engine and other moving components clean and properly lubricated. By doing this, it allows them to not cause wear against one another. It will also help keep your vehicle operating efficiently. If the oil is old and murky, it will need to be changed because it will lubricate the engine..
The other fluids can be checked at the same time as the oil because they are located under the hood as well. This can include transmission fluid, windshield washer fluid, and coolant. The fluids should be at the line indicated on the reservoir for each one. A leak is indicated by one having to be refilled often. Make sure to contact us and we can inspect the vehicle and system for you.
Check the tires as well. The condition of the tires is important. This is because they are the part that makes direct contact with the surface of the road. Check the air pressure for the tires. Also check the tread wear on the tires as well. If the tread is low, you will not have the proper grip the tire needs because they need to grip wet roads. This will cause you to hydroplane. If there is an issue, bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you.
