April is National Car Care Month, so make sure to contact us. By having the vehicle inspected now, you will be able to help prevent further issues. If you notice any odd noises or sounds, you will want to call us. By having a slight issue corrected now, you can save time and money in the long run. You will also be able to drive a safer and more reliable vehicle in the long run. Make sure that you follow the recommendation of maintenance for your vehicle. This way you can ensure all the parts and components are working as they should be.
As always, make sure that the tires are properly inspected. They will need to be fully inflated with air. If there are any issues with the tires going low, then you will want to make sure that you bring your vehicle in. This could mean there is a leak somewhere in the tire or rim. Also we can check the tread wear of each tire for you. If you feel the vehicle pulling in one direction or the other, it could be the tread has worn.
The oil should also be changed on a regular basis for your vehicle. This is the best way to help ensure that the engine is working properly and efficiently. If you hear odd noises or sounds, the oil may not be reaching the engine. Running the vehicle with low or poor oil can cause the engine to seize up completely. You will also want to have the oil filter changed every other oil change. Over time this will become clogged with dirt and debris. It will make it harder for the oil to pass through.
Check each light and blinker of your vehicle as well. This will not only help you see, but help others see where you are driving. The blinkers will alert other drivers when you plan on turning. Having lights and blinkers that work will help prevent the chance for an accident to occur.
