National Car Care Month is here, and that means now is a great opportunity to check on the condition of your car and give it with any attention that it needs. Taking care of your car the right way is the best method to prevent costly repairs in the future. Here are some tips on basic maintenance that you can complete this month (and any month!) so you can get the most life out of your Ford Escape in Crestwood.
Check Fluid Levels
It’s important that your car’s fluid levels are all where they should be. Check the engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid and transmission fluids and top them off if necessary.
Check the Battery
Your car’s battery plays a huge role in how well it runs. Over time, your battery might not perform as well as it once did. Take April as an opportunity to make sure that your battery’s connection is clean and tight, as well as free of corrosion. You can also visit Hawk Ford of Oak Lawn to make sure that your battery’s car is charging the way that it should be.
Inspect the HVAC System
Two of the most important aspects, when you are driving, is interior comfort and visibility. Your HVAC system plays a large part in both of these things. Contact our team if you notice that your AC or heat isn’t working properly or if you need to have new windshield wipers put on.
Don’t underestimate the impact that a little bit of attention and love can have on your vehicle’s lifespan. If you need help taking care of your Ford Escape in Crestwood, rely on our team to help.
