Maintenance

Air Pressure

Remember to check the air pressure in the tires on a regular basis. The tires are the only part of your vehicle that makes contact with the surface of the road. Overtime they will age and start to wear down. You will want to check the air pressure in each one. Also remember to check the tread on each tire. The tread is important because it will allow adequate grip if the road is wet and slick. We can also inspect the tires for you. This will ensure they are in proper driving condition.

Check your Visibility

Make sure the visibility is also the best it can be. Check the windshield to ensure there are no cracks or divots on it. If there are, it can impair your driving. This is because the damage can cover an object that might be on the road in front of you. The windshield wipers also need to be in good operating condition. These will clear the windshield and remove the road grime and dirt. If the wipers start to make a chatter noise or leave streaks, replace them. Replacing the wipers is important because it cleans the window and improves your visibility.

Remember Oil Changes

Also check the oil and other fluids under the hood. Oil changes are important because it removes the older oil. Overtime dirt and debris can get into the oil, making it more difficult to pass through the engine. You will want new clean oil in order for the engine to operate efficiently. If you are not sure when the oil changes should be done, make sure to contact us because we can recommend a schedule.
