3 tips for spring auto maintenance

Tips for Spring auto maintenance (1)

Spring is nearing you can see the snow leaving, you can see clearly on the road and the horizon is clear ahead. Well except for the rainy days… Still many people don’t know what are important things to look at for Spring time auto maintenance. Today Dignity Repairs is going to share three tips for auto maintenance in the spring.

  1. Check batteries, plugs and wires– All these components give the power to your vehicle. Without these you are stuck roadside seeking the help of a friendly stranger. Test and replace your old batteries, plugs and wires. Especially if they are over two years old.
  2. Tire pressure– Nothing sucks like being stuck with a flat tire on the side of the road! Winter weather can actually reduce the  pressure in your tire. In Toronto you have 5 months of cold weather beating on your tires. Just think in this case it is better to be safe than sorry!
  3. Check fluid levels– There are lots of things to check  do not miss any of them. Engine oil needs to be checked, so does transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze/coolant and, yes, even wind-shield washer fluid. Commonly brake fluid is a big issue in the spring time.

Excellent Auto Repair Processes. To the average customer, what they see at an auto repair facility is how well the staff interacts with them, that they drop off their vehicle in one condition, and that they pick up their vehicle in better condition. However, there is so much more that goes into the auto repair process.

From simple mechanical repair to extensive auto body repair,Dignity Repairs is always striving to excel in the following processes: Communication at each step of the repair to keep customers informed. Documented workflow processes to make the repair work more efficient. Check-lists and verification processes with each step of the process.

 

Two way communication with each Insurance company to make certain the customer gets the best possible auto body repair experience. Though we have terrific processes in place, we are always asking questions and exploring new ways to make things better.

When do your tires need replacing?

When to replace tires

 

Not sure when you replace your tires? Here are some tips that will help you determine when your tires should be repaired or replaced.

Step 1:

Check your tires periodically for wear. We understand that you probably don’t look at your tires very often, but it’s a good habit to get into. If you look at them regularly, you will have an easier time discerning whether the tires are in good shape or if a problem is developing.

Step 2:

Recognize what’s going on with your tire wear. Do any of your tires look like this?  If yes, it’s time to replace your tires.

Step 3:

How is the tire tread holding up? If you can stick a penny in between the tire tread and Lincoln’s head is covered, your tires still have plenty of tread. However, if you stick the penny in between the tread and you can clearly see Lincoln’s head, your tires need to be replaced.

Step 4:

Do you see any signs of bubbling, cupping, or bulging in your tires? If yes, your tires are at risk of blowing out, and that’s very dangerous. Do your best to avoid driving your vehicle until you replace those bubbling, cupping, or bulging tires.

Step 5:

Look for nails or other debris stuck in your tires. Nails can cause a flat, but often we can repair the flat right away. If your tires have any nails breaking the surface, get your flat tire fixed right away.
