Winter Care for your Car
When you own a vehicle, you will want to make sure you bring it regularly for maintenance inspections. This way we can check the parts and components of the vehicle to ensure it is working efficiently and at top performance levels. If you notice any issues with your vehicle, make sure to schedule an appointment with us.
Make sure to inspect the tires regularly. The tires are important because they are the only part that will make direct contact with the surface of the road. If the tires are under inflated, they will be more prone to blowing out. Make sure to check the air pressure after the vehicle has had time to sit. This will allow the tires to go to the correct air pressure they have, because usually the air pressure will increase when you are driving, providing you with a false reading. If you notice that the tire goes low, often, there could be a leak in it. Bring the vehicle in and we can inspect the tire for you.
Also remember to check the oil in the vehicle. The oil should be at the correct amount, to ensure proper performance of the engine. Remember to bring the vehicle in for regular oil changes as well. By having the old, dirty oil removed, you can help have the fresh clean oil run efficiently through the system. If you are not sure how often to have the oil changed, make sure to contact us and we can advise you when an oil change is needed.
Always notice how your vehicle handles. If there are odd noises, smells, or issues you notice, this should be looked at as soon as possible. It is important to look at an issue as soon as possible.
