October is Fall Car Care Month
Get your vehicle ready for cooler temperatures this October.
Preventative maintenance leads to fewer unexpected repairs.
Inspection Check List:
Heating, ventilating and air conditioning- Proper heating performance is just as important as proper cooling performance – keep in mind that we are the A/C and heating industry leader and have the largest inventory of used original parts in the business!
Exhaust system- Be aware of leaks and damage to assure harmful fumes do not enter the vehicle.
Hoses and Belts- Check for cracks, bubbles and bulges in your hoses. Don’t risk being stranded on a highway with a broken down car. Read more about replacing hoses here: https://www.originalair.com/when-should-i-replace-my-hoses
Brake System- Have brake system inspected now, especially if you will be driving in more intense weather this winter.
Fluids – Check your engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid and windshield washer fluid.
Lighting – Check exterior lights frequently. Look for cracks, burnt out bulbs and dimmed lights.
Battery – Look for corrosion, leaking and swelling in your battery. The connection should be tight and free of corrosion.
Tires – Inspect tread on all four tires as well as tire pressure. Ensure your wheels are aligned and check for any bulging, cracks or bald areas.
Wipers – Ensure your wipers are not worn down. This will be important should you drive through any inclement weather.
