But just because we have a comprehensive list of services doesn't mean you shouldn't be mindful of some ways to keep your vehicle working properly. The items below should be checked regularly to help you avoid future problems.
1. Windshield Wipers
Worn windshield wipers can turn a drive in a rainstorm from a trying 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 an indication if your wipers need to be replaced, listen for streaking, squeaking, or skipping sounds. You should be able to replace your wipers in only a few minutes.
2. Tire Pressure
An essential tool in anyone's car 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 the ideal PSI for your tires, check your owner's manual or the sticker on your driver's side door. If more air is needed, you should be able to find an air compressor at a local gas station that just costs a few cents to use.
Take a minute or two to check your brake lights, turn signals, and headlights with the assistance of a friend or family member. Find one that isn't working? Visit 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 in Spring Hill and have us handle the replacement for you.
