During the winter season, Florida drivers are always out and about running errands or visiting with family and friends. It’s important to make sure your car is able to keep you as safe as possible while you’re on the road. Christian Brothers Automotive Clermont in Florida has three essential automotive maintenance items to make sure you can get place-to-place without any hassle.
Care for Your Tires
Your tires are always in constant contact with the road. Good tread on your tires helps you maintain traction. Having traction is important as it affects your car’s handling and braking. Inflating your tires to the correct pressure helps the tires last longer. Overinflated and underinflated tires will cause uneven tread wear your tires will need to be replaced more often. Keeping your tires at the correct .psi will help them last their entire 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
Your car battery plays a significant role in your day-to-day operation of your vehicle. Without, and it wouldn’t be very easy to start your car! A car that’s tough to start and leaking battery fluid are a couple of signs your battery needs to be checked. The check engine light can also indicate battery trouble.
