But just because we feature a comprehensive list of services doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be aware of some ways to keep your vehicle in working condition. The three items below should be checked regularly to help you avoid future problems.
1. Windshield Wipers
Old windshield wipers can rapidly escalate the level of danger that is associated with driving in the rain. Depending on how much you drive and where you live, 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 squeaking, skipping, or streaking sounds. You can also look at them for corrosion, damage, or signs of wear and tear. You should be able to install new wipers in only a few minutes.
2. Tire Pressure
An important 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. To learn the ideal PSI for your tires, check your owner’s manual or the sticker on your driver’s side door. If you need more air, you should be able to use an air compressor at a local gas station for a few quarters.
Take a minute or two to 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 Westfield and have us handle the replacement for you.
