Essential Automotive Maintenance Items for Holiday Travel

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

Care for Your Tires

Your car’s tire tread is very important for being able to maintain sufficient traction as your vehicle drives along the road. It also affects the car’s handling and braking ability. One of the ways you can help your tires last longer is by inflating your tires. Having overinflated or underinflated tires will create uneven tread wear, meaning you’ll need to replace your tires more frequently. Keeping your tires inflated at the proper .psi, however, can help them last their expected lifetime.

Replace Worn Brakes

On any vehicle, the brakes are the most important safety feature. Many parts must operate in sync to stop your vehicle and keep you safe. For many brake issues, the first sign of a problem is driver feel. You may notice it takes a little longer to come to a full stop or you may even feel vibrations when stopping. Sometimes a high-pitched squeal will sound when you press down on the brake pedal. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it’s time to have your brakes checked and serviced.

Test Your Battery’s Strength

Another vehicle component that is vital to the daily functioning of your car is the battery. After all, without a battery you wouldn’t be able to start your car! Some signs you may be having battery issues include trouble starting the car or leaking battery fluid. The check engine light going on may also indicate a battery problem.

If you’re experiencing any battery problem signs, you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible!
