Three Simple Car Maintenance Tips for Knoxville Drivers

Three Simple Car Maintenance Tips for Knoxville Drivers

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

But just because we feature a comprehensive list of services doesn't mean you should forget about your car between visits to Christian Brothers Automotive. Here are three simple things that you can check on your car regularly that may improve performance and help you avoid larger problems.

1. Windshield Wipers

Old windshield wipers can rapidly escalate the danger level that goes along with driving in the rain. As a car owner, you should probably replace your wipers every six to twelve months, depending on where you live. If you're looking for an indication if your wipers need to be replaced, listen for squeaking, skipping, or streaking sounds. If it's time for a new pair, you should be able to replace them yourself in just a few minutes. Or stop by your local Christian Brothers Automotive and let us do it for you.

2. Tire Pressure

An important tool in anyone's glovebox is a tire gauge. The DMV recommends that you should check your tire pressure on a weekly or biweekly basis. (A convenient time to do this would be when you fill up your car with gas.) To find out what pressure your tires should be, check your owner's manual. If more air is needed, you should be able to use an air compressor at a local gas station for a few quarters.

3. Lights

Take a few minutes and check your headlights, brake lights, and turn signals with the help of a friend or family member. If you notice a problem bulb, you can find the right replacement at a local auto parts store and make the change in under 15 minutes. Or you can swing by Christian Brothers Automotive and have us take care of the replacement for you.

Why are you still reading this? Get off your computer and check these important items on your vehicle now! Knowing that your lights, tires, and windshield wipers are working can go a long way to helping you feel better about driving on Knoxville roads.
