A few tips to consider before traveling:
Check Tire Pressure Tire pressures fluctuate as temperatures change. Tires that are over- or under-inflated, worn in spots or not aligned properly can be dangerous, especially at highway speeds.
Check Fluid Levels We would be happy to check all fluid levels for your car. Proper fluid levels will ensure your vehicle will not overheat or cause other problems that can ruin your trip.
Don’t Put Water In Your Radiator A popular misconception is that it is OK to put water in your radiator if it needs fluid in the heat. This can cause your radiator to be vulnerable when winter arrives. Use only proper radiator fluid or antifreeze in your vehicle year round.
Change Your Oil Regularly Clean oil means a better-performing engine that will last for years and protect your investment.
Check Your Battery Keep your battery clean and correctly filled with fluids for best results. A dead battery when you are miles from home is something you do not want while you are traveling.
Don’t Forget Windshield Wipers Worn wipers do not sweep clean, and this can cause vision problems if you’re traveling in the rain. The heat of the summer could have made them dry and brittle. Check them out and replace them if necessary before your trip.
Don’t Neglect Your Air Filter Depending on driving conditions, air filters can get dirty sooner than expected and reduce fuel efficiency significantly. Be sure to have your air filter checked whenever you change your oil and replace it as needed.
Check Your Interior Heat Output If your heat is weak or cool, your heater core may be blocked or restricted. The interior heat in your car is
affected because the hot coolant cannot flow properly through the system. This can happen when the wrong coolant is added to your system.
Following these car care tips will help to ensure your holiday travels are safe, pleasant and relaxing.
