You can still fry an egg on the sidewalk; but autmn, and cooler weather it brings, is just around the corner; and that means holiday road trips. If you’ve got a big Thanksgiving or Christmas trip planned this year and you’re not sure if your car is up to the task, bring it in to us at Hughes Automotive for auto repair in Tyler, TX. If you have a specific problem, we can fix it. If you just need a pre-road-trip checkup, we can give your car a bumper-to-bumper inspection that includes:
The braking system is the most critical system on your car in terms of safety. You must be able to stop your vehicle to avoid accidents. An inspection of the brakes includes a check of brake pads, brake discs, calipers, master cylinder, brake fluid reservoir and brake lines.
Maintenance can include replacement of worn brake pads and topping off brake fluid.
Tires are the vehicle parts most likely to fail. A tire check will include an inspection of the tread wear, including uneven wear patterns, and a check for broken belts and bulges.
Maintenance can include tire rotation or tire replacement.
A car that is out of alignment or that has worn shocks and struts can make for rough handling on the road and can make for decreased gas mileage, which translates into more money spent for fuel.
Maintenance can include replacing shocks and struts or performing an alignment.
✓ Cooling System
After tires, the cooling system is the second most likely system to fail on a car. An inspection of your car’s cooling system will check for radiator leaks, hose leaks and worn-out parts like radiator caps and water pumps.
Maintenance can include replacing caps or hoses and flushing and replacing old coolant.
✓ Belts and Hoses
Hoses and belts can become worn and loose over time. They can also break, resulting in catastrophic damage to your car.
Maintenance can include replacing old or compromised hoses and belts.
✓ Heater and Air Conditioner
A functioning heater and air conditioner are vital to travelling comfort. A check of this system will look for a fully-charged AC system, a check of the compressor, evaporator, condenser and fan.
Maintenance can include adding coolant to the system and replacing parts.
✓ Lights and Wiper Blades
Headlights, taillights, turn signals and wipers should be functioning properly for optimal safety on the road.
Maintenance can include replacing wiper blades and light bulbs if necessary.
