Keeping up with regular maintenances is important. This can help to provide you with a safe and reliable vehicle when you travel. If you are unsure how often to bring your vehicle in for an inspection, make sure to contact us. We can inspect different parts and components of the vehicle to ensure they are working the best they can be. Besides providing a more reliable ride, it can also help your vehicle to be more efficient. If you ever notice an issue with your vehicle between visits, make sure to bring it to our attention as soon as possible. One part to inspect is the oil on the vehicle. The oil helps to lubricate the engine so the moving parts operate efficiently.

Inspect the Cabin Air Filter

The cabin air filter can help keep the passenger compartment of the vehicle free of contaminants during the time you drive. This can help prevent dirt, pollen, dust, and exhaust from other vehicles from entering your vehicle. If the cabin air filter is not functioning properly, you may have odors and pollutants enter the vehicle. This could include diesel fumes that might make it difficult to breath. When the filter becomes dirty or clogged, you might notice an odd smell or a reduction in the airflow when you turn on the air conditioner. If you are not sure how often the air filter should be replaced, make sure to contact us and we can advise you on a correct schedule.

Make sure Alignments are done when Needed

Having a proper alignment done is necessary to help keep your vehicle driving smooth and straight. It is also a necessary procedure to have the weight distributed evenly on the tires. If the tires are out of alignment, it might feel like the vehicle pulls in one direction or the other. You might also notice that the vehicle wobbles at lower speeds. Another way to notice if an alignment is needed is if the tires start to wear unevenly. The tires should be worn equally for all four. Check the tread of the tires to ensure that they are wearing correctly. If you notice unusual tread wear, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you.

The Pressure of the Tires

Another important thing to check is the air pressure in your tires. If the air pressure is too low, it could cause poor fuel mileage with your vehicle. It can also allow additional contact to the surface of the road. This will cause the tires to wear faster. The increase resistance from the contact will also slow your vehicle down. Poor fuel mileage can then result from this. If the air pressure it too high, there will be less contact with the surface of the road. This can reduce the friction that is necessary in order to keep good traction on the road. If you are unsure how much air pressure the tires should have, make sure to contact us. This can help provide you with a safe and reliable ride.
