Performing Routine Maintenance Prevents Calls To Roadside Assistance

Radiator FlushRoutine maintenance performs many functions. It helps your vehicle look its best and it also prevents the need to make calls to your roadside assistance program.

First off, give your car a wash and wax to remove grime and winter salt, as well as make your vehicle look nice and new. This will protect the paint finish on your car during the summer heat.

Second, refer to your owner’s manual to flush and refill your radiator. You should also regularly check the concentration, level, and condition of the coolant.

Change your oil. If you skip oil changes, it can significantly minimize the life of your vehicle. When you get your oil changed, get the oil filter changed as well. Other filters also must be replaced from time to time. Such filters include the PCV, air, and fuel filters.

Lastly, inspect your vehicle’s tires. Let them cool down and check your air pressure. In addition, be aware of uneven wear, cupping, pulling to one side, and vibrations. These are all possible indications to problems with either your vehicle’s suspension system or tires.

By performing the necessary routine maintenance you can have your car operating properly and prevent calls to roadside assistance.
