Saving Money at the Pump this Spring

You are probably saving money at the fuel pumps this spring. As the fuel prices are at a record low, now is a great time to take advantage of the extra savings. Remember to support your local auto repair shop. Bring the vehicle in and we can do a bumper to bumper inspection on it. This is the best way to help ensure that it will be efficient for you while you are driving. Between visits, always make sure that you notice anything out of the norm of the vehicle. This could include odd noises, odors, or even how it handles or steers.

Saving Money by noticing issues

If you notice an issue, not matter what it is, contact us immediately. Ignoring a problem will only make it worse in the long run. You will also increase the chance of it being a larger repair bill once it is inspected. If a part has an issue, it can start to cause other nearby parts to wear out sooner as well. If a brake pad or rotor is in poor condition, it will cause the other one to wear out quicker than it otherwise should. Even if you think the issue may not be important, it is always best to have it inspected as soon as you can.

 

Remember that you will also want to check all the fluids of the vehicle. This includes having the oil changed when recommended. If the oil is old, it will start to clog up the filter and even the engine. If you run the vehicle without any oil, then the engine can seize up all together. This will then result in a costly repair bill for the vehicle. Remember that the other fluids should be inspected and flushed based on the recommended schedule. Doing so can help you have a reliable vehicle on the road.
