vacation

 

Chances are you will probably take a vacation somewhere this summer. You will want to make sure that your vehicle is in the best condition possible. Doing so will make it more reliable to get you to and from your destination. The last thing you will want to have happen is an unexpected breakdown that could have been prevented. While on vacation, you will always want your vehicle to work correctly. If there is an issue, we will be able to notice it so it can be resolved quickly for you.

Before Vacation, check these components

There are some tasks that should be done before your vacation. If you are not sure what they are, you can also bring your vehicle so we can give it a bumper to bumper inspection before you need to drive. The fluids can be inspected and topped off if needed. Having the oil inspected is important as well. This will keep the engine properly lubricated. If there is not the proper amount of oil in the vehicle, then the engine can start to fail and seize altogether. When you notice that the oil is low, make sure to top it off as soon as possible. This will prevent further damage from the engine occurring.

Check the Tires

You will also want to make sure that you check the tires on your vehicle before you go on vacation. They should be inflated to the proper amount. Tires can sometimes become low by a nail or puncture. They can also be low because of a poor valve stem on the tire. If this occurs often, you will want to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. The tires should also be checked for any cracks or damage that they may have. If the vehicle is left out frequently, then the tires can develop dry rot from the sun and elements. To make sure your vehicle travels the best it can, make sure that you check the tires on it regularly.
