No matter the season or the weather, Tracy’s Automotive will keep your car running at top form.
You’re eager to take the kids to see Wild Lights at the Sedgewick Zoo but you’re a bit hesitant to drive around at night. Your car isn’t exactly broken but something just doesn’t seem right. If you have a breakdown, you’d much prefer that it was in daylight and the kids were not in the car.
Since there’s nothing specific wrong, it could be your imagination. Or, maybe you’ve subconsciously noticed something. You should probably take your car to your trusted Wichita auto care technician for a checkup. This is a good time to do that anyway. The Canadian group Be Car Care Aware urges seasonal car care.
The group recommends 10 points to check, or have checked, in autumn:
“Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
“Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear.
“Check the battery and replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free.
“Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change.
“Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay.
“Schedule a tune-up to help the engine deliver the best balance of power and fuel economy and produce the lowest level of emissions.
“Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting.
“Inspect the steering and suspension system annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components.
“Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
“Check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.”
