A car has many parts that need regular inspections and service to provide optimal performance. Although most car owners regularly inspect and replace their engine oil, air filters, headlights, and tires, they often forget other necessary check-ups. These need to be done by professionals at Dave McDermott Chevrolet after the car hits a specific mileage milestone.
- Transmission Fluid
Like engine oil, transmission fluid is an essential lubricant that keeps your transmission functioning properly. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and get this fluid checked and changed at about 60,000 miles. Get your transfer case fluid checked at the same time, as well.
- Spark Plugs
Spark plugs ignite the gas that powers your vehicle. If they don’t function well, the engine won’t operate at optimal capacity. Be sure to have a professional check and replace faulty spark plugs during your auto maintenance service in New Haven every 30,000 to 40,000 miles.
Your car’s radiator is a crucial part of keeping the engine running smoothly. Having your radiator fluid flushed every 30,000 miles is recommended. This will help the radiator function properly and get rid of any collected contaminants.
- Shocks and Struts
Shocks and struts control the impact and rebound your car faces when it goes over bumps in the road. Get these inspected every 50,000 miles. If you feel a loss of control or smoothness while driving, get these checked during auto maintenance service in New Haven.
- Battery Performance
Extreme temperatures and rain can affect the performance of your car’s battery. Since your vehicle won’t power without a charged and efficient battery, have your battery performance checked regularly.
