With springtime weather comes the likelihood of even wetter than normal conditions for car and truck drivers in Longview, Kelso, Castle Rock, Rainer, Clatskanie, Toutle, Cathlamet, St. Helens, Toledo and Winlock. In order to ensure drivers are as safe as possible, this spring, the Certified Master Technicians at Esty’s Auto Center in Longview, WA encourage car and truck owners and drivers to remember than an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. To that end, Esty’s Springtime Safety and Savings Tips include the following: Schedule a Vehicle Inspection Before you hit the road in the wet weather, David Vandre, General Manager of Esty’s Auto Center recommends that car owners schedule a vehicle inspection which includes an inspection of the major systems, including engine, cooling system, drive train, electrical system, body, brakes, suspension, exhaust system, and A/C System. “Being proactive about maintaining your car’s health can catch easy and inexpensive issues before they develop into a costlier problem,” Vandre said. Replace Your Windshield Wipers Drivers in the Pacific Northwest can’t afford to have old or worn wiper blades. Well-functioning windshield wipers are crucial to maintaining visibility and safety while driving in spring showers. Get Your Tires Rotated Not only will regular tire rotation extend the life of your tires but doing so helps to prevent uneven wear and keep you safe while on the road. In addition, regular tire rotations help to save you money by preventing tire blowouts, and assisting with fuel efficiency. Address Squeaks, Rattles, or Vibrations If you’ve been prolonging any squeaking, vibrating or rattling in your car, now is the time to have the problem repaired. Squeaking may for example indicate that the brakes are not working properly, and thus pose not only a safety risk, but the risk of greater damage to your vehicle. Springtime is the perfect time to take care of things you’ve been putting off in the winter, so your car is in the best possible shape for spring and summer. Change Your Oil and/or Filter Clean engines are safer engines, and improve your car’s overall function, which is why a springtime oil change should be scheduled. “Clean oil and new filters are critical to your engine’s long-term health,” said Vandre. “Having regular oil changes lessens wear by keeping the inside of your engine clean.” Esty’s Auto Center’s team of Certified Master Technicians includes Vandre, who has worked exclusively in automotive repair for more than 24 years.
