Let’s Talk Wiper Blades
When you’re driving in the rain, do you catch yourself squinting and blinking to see through the drops on the windshield? After a shower, do you find that you have to rock back and forth while you’re driving to see through the streaks? Even in bright sunshine, is your driving a little bit dangerous because the sun reflects off residue on your windshield? If so, you could use a new set of wiper blades to make your outlook a little easier and safer.
Come by our Xpress Lube service center and we’ll talk wiper blades with you. Or, maybe you need some other service? We’re your “go to” technicians for all things “auto.”
Oil Change – To get the best performance from your vehicle, get oil changes regularly according to the owner’s manual. Fresh, clean oil helps lubricate parts and keep them cool. Old oil gets broken down by the wear and tear and heat of the combustion process, which can cause serious damage to the engine. Also, old oil filters that are full of particles and pollutants need to be replaced, too, before they are so clogged that they can’t do their job any more.
Air Filter – This item is very important because it cleans the air you breathe inside your vehicle. It filters out allergens and pollutants from the outside before the air is circulated from your heater or air conditioner. If an old air filter gets too filled with grime, you will experience reduced air flow or air that has a new odor to alert you that it’s past time for a change. Also, keeping up with air filter replacement will help maintain your HVAC system.
Radiator Flush and Fill – Flushing and filling the cooling system, that is the radiator, is absolutely necessary to keep your vehicle’s engine from overheating, which causes serious damage. If this isn’t done regularly, additives will break down and won’t lubricate seals to prevent corrosion. Damages that result from this negligence can be very expensive to repair.
Fuel Injection – Modern vehicles with computerized systems and sensitive sensors function best when the fuel-to-air mixture is precise. Dirty injectors interfere with this process. Over time, dirt and contaminants prevent a good flow of fuel and your engine cannot function well.
Auto Transmission – Whether your transmission is manual or automatic, this high-tech equipment is what conducts power from the engine to the wheels’ axle, controlling the speed that you travel. Its complex hydraulics and electronics make it a very complicated piece of equipment. If you ignore its regular maintenance, eventually it will “blow out” and the vehicle will not operate.
Differential – This gear box works with your transmission to power the vehicle’s wheels. If it isn’t serviced regularly, wheels won’t turn at different speeds and tires will lose traction. Regular maintenance for your differential is just as important as maintaining the transmission.
Brakes – Maintaining good brakes will ensure your family’s safety. Your brake system has to function flawlessly in all kinds of weather at many different speeds with a second’s notice. You want to be sure pads and shoes are in good condition, brake lines are sound, the master cylinder functions properly and the rotors are not worn.
