Vehicle Maintenance Saves You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled car service is a boo-boo that everyone makes. In our excitement to get on the road, we don’t take the time to make certain our vehicle is ready to roll. Before you know it, 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 new engine?


Improve the Life of Your Vehicle

Keeping your vehicle maintained isn’t simply to make sure you get a less expensive, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained keeps it healthy for far longer than a minimally maintained one.


Safety On The Road

Nobody intends to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can make certain you and your friends and family get to your destination safe and sound. So, before you head out on vacation, take a look at this brief summer car maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird odors, unusual noises, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these issues turn up, you’ll need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

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

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, brake fluid, and oil to ensure your vehicle’s moving parts are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and inspect 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 make sure your car starts up each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
