Keeping the car properly maintained when school starts again is important. This will help with the safety and reliability of it as well. When the vehicle has regular maintenance done for it, you can reduce the chance of an unexpected breakdown from happening with it. We can also advise you when the schedule is for each task of your vehicle. If you notice anything out of the norm with the vehicle, make sure that you contact us.
You will want to check the fluid levels for the vehicle. If any are below the recommended amount, top them off. When a fluid is low frequently, it can be caused by a leak in the system. The hoses will need to be inspected to help ensure they are in the best condition. If a hose has a crack or leak, we can replace it as soon as possible. Also remember to check and change the oil on a regular basis. Doing so will help keep the engine and moving parts working effectively. Also remember to have the oil changed on the recommended schedule. This will help keep it fresh and clean.
Proper back to school care should also include all four tires of the vehicle. The tires should be checked so that they are properly inflated. If a tire gets low on a regular basis, there could be a leak. Also make sure to have the valve stems inspected, as well as around the rim. These areas can be common for the leak to occur. The tread should also be checked on each tire. If the tread is too low, then you will notice the vehicle pulling in one direction or the other. This makes it difficult when the road is wet. You can test the tread by placing a penny upside down in the groove of the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tire has low tread. Make sure to contact us and we can inspect it for you.
