Auto Repair & Maintenance Seasonal Vehicle Maint

Back-to-school time is the perfect time for preventative vehicle maintenance and needed repairs.  No matter if you’re driving across town or across the country, you need to be sure your vehicle can get you there safely. 

Here are 4 auto repair tasks for your Back-to-School checklist:

 

  1. Replacing Your Air Filter
    With all the things you have on your mind, changing your air filter and other types of auto repair, will likely be somewhere towards the bottom of your list. If you haven’t replaced your air filter in a while, make sure you replace it before heading back to school.  It will help keep your car running efficiently and allow the air that circulates through your car to be cleaner and more breathable.
  2. Having Your Oil Changed
    It is recommended that you get your vehicle’s oil changed every 3,000 miles or so. Whether you are driving near or far, you’ll be surprised at how quickly 3,000 miles will come up. By having your oil changed before school starts, you’ll have one less thing to stress about. 
  3. Replacing Your Spark Plugs
    Replacing dirty or damaged spark plugs is usually a quick and easy fix. Get it done sooner rather than later, so you don’t miss a big homecoming party because you were stranded on the side of the road. Replace them and check it off the list.
  4. Checking Your Tires
    Improperly inflated tires not only wreak havoc on your car’s fuel efficiency, but they make it less safe to drive as well. Checking your car’s tires to ensure they are properly inflated is a small measure can make a big difference later down the road.
