April and Care of Your Vehicle

April is National Car Care Month, so now is an ideal time to have it properly inspected. Schedule an appointment and we can give it a bumper to bumper inspection for any issues. If there are parts or components that need to be repaired, we can do so. With proper maintenance, you can help ensure you have a safe and reliable vehicle when driving on the road. Always be aware of issues that you might notice as you drive. Any strange sounds or noises should alert you to an issue. By contacting us, we can look for the source of that issue.

You will want to be aware how your brakes operate. If the pedal is soft or spongy, the brakes are getting worse. Also be aware if the brake pedal is hard to press down. As we inspect the vehicle, we can check the brake pads, brake rotors, or brake fluid for it. This way your brake system will be safe and reliable when you need them.

 

April is a great time to have the fluids inspected for the vehicle. A fluid flush or change may be needed. Make sure to contact us and we can advise you on a schedule. If you notice one fluid going low, often, then there could be a leak in the hoses somewhere. If the fluid is becoming dirty and old, a fluid flush is beneficial for your vehicle. At the same time as looking at the fluids, we can check the belts and hoses of the vehicle. Since there are several belts that help the various parts to work, you will want to make sure they are in great condition. Over time they will start to wear and can snap. This can cause and unexpected breakdown. So even if you think your vehicle is in tip top shape, make sure to contact us for an inspection.
