Spring is here and the temperatures will start to rise as we get closer to summer. Now is a good time to get your car ready for summer's hot temperatures. Be sure to have the appropriate automotive service performed at the recommended interval. It will not only potentially save you $$$ in automotive repair expense, it can literally be a lifesaver in hot conditions. 5 Automotive Service Tips: Regular Oil Changes -- Regularly change the oil and filter, as well check the other fluids and filters (coolant, brake and transmission) and refresh at the recommended intervals. Don't skimp on using high-quality filters. Inspect the Brakes – Have an inspection of the braking system before heading out on a long road trip. Check the condition of the brake rotors, pads, and calipers to determine if a brake repair is necessary. Are the pads warped or cracked with deep grooves? Are the pads worn close to their minimum clearance? Working Lights -- Make sure all your lights are working properly. New bulbs cost only a few dollars and are fairly easy to install. If you can't do it yourself, don't delay in scheduling an automotive service for safety. Clean the Windshield – Be ready for those sudden summer thunder storms with good windshield wipers and a full washer fluid reservoir. If necessary, replace a cracked windshield so the safety of your passenger cabin is not compromised. Check the Tires -- Have your tires rotated, inspected and filled with the correct air pressure before heading out on a long road trip. If your tires are worn, it is wise to replace them. Remember to make sure the spare is in good condition so you're not stranded with a flat tire on a hot summer day. Why spend money on quality automotive service?
