3 Essential Car Services You Shouldn’t SkipMar 19th, 2020
As precautions to protect Albertans from the spread of COVID-19 are implemented, we wanted to provide a list of essential car services you should have done. Having a sound vehicle can be critical in an emergency situation.
While some automotive services you can go a while without receiving, others are absolutely essential. If you live in Edmonton or surrounding areas and need one of these services, our team is here to help.
#1 Replace Your Air Filter
Your cabin air filter is the first defense between debris and the interior of your vehicle. It keeps pollen and unwanted particles out of your air conditioning and heating system.
People with breathing issues, severe allergies or asthma find they are often worse when their cabin air filter needs to be replaced. Ensure you and your passengers are breathing clean air
#2 Change Your Oil
In order for your engine to keep running, it needs regular oil changes. Oil is one of the most important things in your engine. It keeps all the parts moving cohesively with minimal friction.
When the oil becomes old or needs changing, your engine begins to overheat. If left without an oil change for too long, your entire engine may wear down and need to be replaced. If there was ever a vital service for your vehicle, regular oil changes are that service.
#3 Rotate Tires and Check Air Pressure
Next to oil, your tires are the most important determinator on how your car drives down a road. They are the first point of connection between you and the pavement. Worn-out tires, a flat tire, or low tire pressure can all be extremely dangerous, and could leave you stranded.
We recommend rotating your tires every time you get an oil change. You should also have your alignment checked yearly to ensure your steering is straight. Good alignment is there to make sure you have maximum traction, and that can mean the world in a risky driving situation.
