Regularly Scheduled Car Service Will Save You Cash

Putting off regular car maintenance is an error almost everyone makes. In our rush to get on the road, we don’t take the time to make certain our vehicle is ready to roll. The next thing you know, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?

Extend the Life of Your Car or Truck

Keeping your car in good condition isn’t just to make certain you get a cheaper, problem-free vacation. Over time, keeping your vehicle maintained keeps it healthy for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

Nobody wants to be stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make certain you and your friends and family get to ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you start your trip, take a few minutes to look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, check for weird odors, odd sounds, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these issues appear, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system checked out.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to see if your engine is being appropriately cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mixture is good.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, brake fluid, and oil to make sure your car’s vital mechanical systems are properly lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and check your brake pads and/or shoes for any visible indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to ensure your car starts each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
