Saving money is always beneficial, but you probably have noticed that the fuel prices have decreased. As you shelter in place, you may be driving than you used to. Now it a great time to take advantage of the money you have saved. You can schedule regular maintenance inspections with us. Make sure to follow the recommended oil changes that are needed for your vehicle. Doing so will help the engine operate efficiently. If you notice any noises under the hood, or grinding sounds, make sure to contact us as soon as you can. No matter what problem you notice, it will need to be inspected so the issue is repaired quickly.
Also remember to have the tires rotated on a regular basis. Having the tires rotated will help them to wear correctly. Uneven wear can cause the tires to wear out sooner than they otherwise should. If you take a penny and place it upside down in the groove of the tread, you can determine tread wear. Look to see the top of Lincoln’s head. If you can, then the tread has worn down and new tires are needed. If the tread has worn differently around the tires, rotating them can help increase the longevity of them. Remember to have the tires aligned as well. If the vehicle pulls in one direction, the reason could be poor alignment of the tires. We can inspect and align them for you.
Another important item to check on the vehicle is each light and turn signal. If the lights are not working properly, then there will be an increase in accidents that might occur. The lights not only help you to see, but it helps others to see you as well. So make sure that all of them are working. You will also want to check that they are aimed properly, so they do not impair the vision of oncoming traffic.
