Three Things to Check on Your Car Today for Round Rock Residents

Most people don't have the time or knowledge to handle maintenance with your vehicle. That's why Christian Brothers is here. Our team offers many different services for our customers in Round Rock, including tune-ups, emission inspections, AC repairs, and tire rotations.

But that doesn't mean you should ignore your car between visits to Christian Brothers. 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

Worn windshield wipers can turn a drive in a rainstorm from an aggravating experience into something very dangerous. Depending on how much you drive, you should probably replace your wipers ever six to twelve months. If you're looking for any signs of wipers that need to be replaced, listen for skipping, streaking, or squeaking sounds. 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

An essential tool in anyone's car is a tire gauge. The DMV recommends that you should check your tire pressure at least every other week. To find out the ideal PSI for your tires, check 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 isn't working? Go to a local auto parts store to find the right bulb for your car and read your manual to learn how to replace it. Or you can drop by Christian Brothers and have us take care of the replacement for you.
