The changing weather can have a considerable effect on our vehicles, making maintenance and upkeep vital. Express Oil Change & Tire Engineer who offers these key tips to keep you and your family safe on the road and prevent roadside emergencies.
- Optimize vehicle efficiency: Get the best possible gas mileage by having a fuel system cleaning performed on your vehicle. Also, make sure tires are properly inflated with plenty of tread life.
- Ensure a comfortable ride: After a long winter, your air conditioning may need a tune-up to guarantee it is working properly and cooling effectively. You’ll also want to make sure you and your passengers are breathing clean air inside by replacing your cabin filter.
- Avoid the preventable: There should be no warning indicator lights illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard. Verify that the engine coolant, belts, and hoses are in proper working order. The number one cause of breakdowns is cooling system failure.
- Prepare for the unexpected: The only thing worse than breaking down on the side of the road is breaking down and realizing you don’t have the proper emergency kit inside your vehicle. Keep items such as a cell phone charger, flashlight, food and water in your vehicle at all times.
