Three Things to Check on Your Car Today

If you're like most people out there, you probably don't have the time or knowledge to handle repairs on your car. Luckily, that is why Christian Brothers Tega Cay is here. Our team offers a number of different automotive services for our customers in Tega Cay and Fort Mill including tune-ups, safety inspections, engine repairs, and alignments.

But that doesn't mean you should totally ignore your car between visits to Christian Brothers. Here are three simple things that you can check on your car today that may improve performance and help you avoid larger problems.

1. Windshield Wipers

Worn windshield wipers can turn a drive in a rainstorm from an aggravating experience into something that is extremely dangerous. Depending on how much you drive, you should probably replace your wipers ever six to twelve months. If you are looking for any signs of wipers that need to be replaced, listen for skipping, streaking, or squeaking sounds. You can also look at them closely for corrosion, damage, or signs of wear and tear. You should be able to replace your wipers in only a few minutes. Or stop by your local Christian Brothers and let us do the job for you.

2. Tire Pressure

The DMV recommends that you should check your tire pressure at least every other week. To learn what pressure your tires should be, look in your owner's manual. If you need more air, 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. Find one that is broken? Visit a local auto parts store to find the right bulb and read your manual to learn how to replace it. Or you can drop by Christian Brothers Tega Cay and have us handle the replacement for you.

What are you waiting for? Get off your computer and check these important items on your vehicle today! Knowing that your tires, wipers, and lights are working can go a long way to making you feel better about driving on Fort Mill and Tega Cay roads.
