Scheduled Car Maintenance Saves You Money

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance is a boo-boo all of us have made. In our excitement to get started on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is in tip-top shape. The next thing you know, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Increase the Life of Your Car

Keeping your vehicle in good condition isn’t just to ensure you get a less costly, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained keeps it healthy for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

Nobody plans to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your family and friends get to ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you start your trip, take a few minutes to look at this short vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, check for weird smells, unusual noises, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these problems pop up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system looked at.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mix is properly mixed.

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your oil, transmission fluid, and brake fluid to ensure your car’s vital mechanical systems are properly lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove the tires one-at-a-time and check your brake pads and/or shoes for any visible signs of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to ensure your car starts up every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in great condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
