Summer Maintenance Care for your Car

When you own a car, you will want to keep it in the best condition you can. This should include regular inspections by both you and by us. Every time that you fill up with gasoline, is a good time to check the condition of the windshield, windows, and tires. Most gas stations have an area where you can get free air for the tires incase you are low. You should also bring the vehicle in on a regular basis schedule so we can inspect things for you. This will help to keep it in ideal condition. We can also advise you on when you should bring the vehicle in. You may also find the recommended maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual of your vehicle as well.

Oil Changed

The first thing to remember is when to have the oil changed. The oil has the job to lubricate the parts of the engine while it works. Without oil, the engine will start to wear against either, causing extra strain. If there is not oil in the vehicle, there will be issues starting to form, increasing the chance of a costly repair bill as well. When the oil is changed, the old oil is completely removed. The new fresh oil then is replaced in the place of it. The oil filter will also be inspected to see if it needs to be changed. Since it helps separate pollutants from the oil, it should also be in the best condition.

Windshield Wiper Maintenance

One thing that you may overlook are the windshield wipers. If your vehicle has a rear window windshield wiper, it is also important to examine that as well. The wipers are designed to remove any grime and road debris that might collect on the windows of your vehicle. By replacing them when necessary, you can improve your visibility.
