The calendar says that the cool days of Fall are here! This means that your vehicle has survived the hot temperatures of summer and it should have a little extra attention before the freezing temperatures of winter arrive. Ask your auto shop to conduct a thorough inspection of your vehicle. They can take care of any preventative maintenance items that are recommended or fix a potential problem before it gets any bigger. They want your vehicle to be as safe and reliable as possible when you’re driving around in winter weather!

Your auto shop should check the following issues:

  • Fluids.  If there are any leaking fluids, your auto shop can pinpoint the source and fix it so you don’t end up driving around with low oil or coolant.
  • Brakes.  Make sure the components of your brakes are in good condition, which includes the pads, rotors, and calipers. When they start to wear down, you will hear squealing, squeaking, or metal-on-metal grinding sounds.
  • Sounds.  You don’t want to hear strange sounds coming from under the hood or the muffler. Rumbling or sputtering sounds could indicate there is a hole in the muffler or the catalytic converter is going bad. Chirping or screeching sounds from under the hood could mean the belts have become brittle or frayed.
  • Tires.  Have the condition of the tires checked, which includes air pressure, tread wear, and rubber. If there are unusual wear patterns or your tires growl or roar as you drive down the road, a tire rotation or wheel alignment may be necessary. Or if the tread is too thin or a wheel bearing has gone bad, it may be time for a new set of tires.
  • Warning lights.  When the car’s onboard diagnostic system detects a problem, warning lights on the instrument panel will illuminate. Head to your auto center for a diagnostic test to pinpoint the problem. It may be a simple fix such as resetting a sensor, or it could be something more serious.

Remember:  The key to stress-free driving is to have all recommended maintenance items taken care of at the right intervals. Let your auto center take care of your car so there are no hidden problems lurking under the hood.
