The new year has just begun, and with Valentine's Day around the corner, it is essential that you talk with your vehicle and see what kind of love it needs.
Check the Oil
Your car runs on oil to keep it smooth. You will be doing your car an incredible disservice if you are not keeping up with it when it needs an oil change. How do you check the oil yourself? You pull out the dipstick and see where the oil level is. If the color is gold-ish, then you're golden! If it is black, that is an indication it is time for an oil change.
Listen to Your Breaks
Hear anything when you slam on your breaks? Guess what? That screeching sound is a sign that your brakes might need replacing. Book an appointment with us at Jeff's Automotive for a great price you'll love!
The Tire Pressure
Preventing a flat tire is the best time and money-saving preventive action you can make for your car. We recommend you check your tire levels every couple of months or come by our shop at Jeff's Automotive for a professional look. Your tire pressure can also affect your car's fuel economy, so having it on-point will save you money too!
All Your Lights
When it comes to being safe on the road and preventing a ticket, having all the lights in your car working can save a lot of money. We sometimes don't notice if a tail light goes out, so it is wise to take it into a shop and see if the mechanics catch one of your car's lights being out. By having all your lights working, you are an excellent communicator on the road!
Your Wheel Alignment
Lastly, in our list of easy ways to listen to your car is wheel alignment. Your car has an easy way of telling you it needs to go into the shop for a wheel alignment. If you notice that your car is steering more to the left or the right, this is a clear indication that you need to seek a wheel alignment adjustment. Once your car is aligned correctly, it will be easy and safer to predict how your car will react when driving.
Here at Jeff's Automotive, we hope that you and your car communicate with each other on a regular basis. It can be easy to spot when your car is in need of a service visit if you listen closely enough.
