Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any funky smells, unusual noises, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these issues pop up, you’ll need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to see if your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mix is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your oil, transmission fluid, and brake fluid to make sure your vehicle’s moving parts are effectively lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove the tires one-at-a-time and examine your brake pads and/or shoes for any observable indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery
