Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to ensure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.
Smog checks are designed to ensure the amount and type of pollutants your vehicle is emitting do not exceed maximum standards. There are multiple components of any smog test, and your vehicle must pass all parts of the test to pass.
Now that summer is here, the scorching heat, dust, and occasional rain can take a toll on your vehicle's system. Heading to your trusted auto repair shop the moment you notice signs of engine trouble can be less expensive the sooner you do it.
The warm weather can be tough on your vehicle's air conditioning system. Now that the weather is mild and sunny, the last thing you want is to head out for a long drive only to realize your vehicle's air conditioning is not working.
When you notice a burning smell while driving, hear any noise related to braking, or a difference in braking performance, get a brake check right away.
The cabin air filter in a vehicle protects you from dust, pollen, mold spores, and other particulates to keep your cabin clean and the air you breathe uncontaminated. Clogged cabin air filter works less efficiently and uses more power.
