It’s definitely spring now and summer is well on its way. If you still haven’t checked your vehicle since before winter or you’re just wanting to prepare for a summer road trip, now’s the time to go see a certified technician. Set up a service appointment with Sansone Jr.’s 66 Automall to have your vehicle thoroughly checked for the spring.
Detail the interior and exterior of your vehicle. When it’s cold, people tend to ignore their vehicles – after all, most people don’t want to spend a couple of hours cleaning and detailing the interior when it’s cold. Be sure to use the appropriate products for the materials in your vehicle.
Detail the exterior to remove any rust-producing and paint-fading crud and salt. Once you’ve washed the vehicle, be sure to put a coat of good wax on the paint. And, don’t forget to wash the undercarriage.
Be sure to follow your maintenance schedule for your vehicle’s powertrain, brakes, suspension and steering. Be sure you change the oil and top off the fluids. Have your service technician check the brakes, belts, hoses and fluids. Test your air conditioning. If it’s not cold, our service technicians will check the system for leaks and clogged expansion blocks or orifice tubes.
Have our vehicle’s charging system checked. The battery may have taken a hit this past winter. A weak battery makes the alternator work harder and could wear it out sooner rather than later.
If you have all-season tires, you just need to have them checked for uneven wear, normal tread wear and to see if you may have a separated tire. Hitting a big enough pothole could cause a tire to separate. If you have winter tires, it’s time to change over to all-season or summer tires.
Suspension and Steering
Riding on rough roads could also affect the steering and suspension components on your vehicle. Be sure to have your service technician check all steering and suspension components. As part of this, have the alignment checked.
