Attention drivers!April is National Car Care Month and it is the perfect time to come to EZ Auto Finance in Dubuque, IA to get an inspection! Proper vehicle maintenance can help keep you and other drivers safe on the road. Protect your investment and help your car stay healthy longer!
What can YOU do? When you get in your vehicle, test your interior and exterior lights that they are working. Take a look at your tires. Are they uneven or have cuts? Do they need air? Check the pressure of all tires, even if only one is low. Don’t forget about the spare! Also check your vehicles heating and air conditioning system. This is very important for safety reasons, such as defrosting!
What WE will do!
If it is time for an oil change, call EZ Auto Finance and ask for our Service Manager, Ryan. While you’re here, his team is able to check the condition and looseness of your belts and check for hose damage and replace them if they have leaks, cracks, rust, or are brittle, restricted, or swollen. Brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, and windshield washer fluid… check!
Tune-ups are crucial! After scheduling your appointment, ask Ryan about the following:
Checking brake linings, rotors, and drums.
Inspecting exhaust system for leaks, damages, and broken supports, or hangers if there is an unusual noise. *Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be taken care of immediately!
Confirming that the battery connection is clean, tight, corrosion-free, and securely mounted. Ryan recommends that you test your battery if it is 3 years old or more, and replace if necessary.
Replacing windshield wiper blades every six months or when cracked, cut, torn, or streaking.
Inspecting shock absorbers and struts.
Checking Chassis parts, such as ball joints, tire rod ends, and other related components.
Getting an alignment annually to help to reduce tire wear and improve fuel economy and handling.
