Seasonal Maintenance at Trail Tire Auto Centers 9250 Macleod Trail

Seasonal Maintenance

Your concerns regarding the state and integrity of your vehicle should alter with the seasons. Most individuals assume that the only season that can significantly impact a driving experience is winter. Still, each season has unique problems in most regions that should be faced with good car care.

At Trail Tire Auto Centers 9250 Macleod Trail, knowledge is a critical part of our customer care. We constantly try to make sure that the motorists who come to us are prepared with the information they want to keep their cars operating as smoothly as a possible year long. The following is a season-by-season summary of our automobile maintenance suggestions.

Fall and Winter

During winter, be sure your vehicle is prepared to withstand whatever the winter season may toss at you. It’s a great idea to schedule a car service in the fall to prepare for winter weather.

Many individuals wait till the last minute to get their vehicle serviced before leaving town, and due to basic market forces, you may end up spending more if you have your vehicle fixed a week before a special holiday.

The following are the most prevalent winter difficulties that need to be fixed or serviced:

  • Tires: Make sure your tires have adequate tread depth and are correctly aligned. Winter tends to bring more rain, and your tires will assist you in dealing with all of the factors.
  • Windshield Repair: due to temperature fluctuations, any cracks may enlarge and grow when moving from cooler to warmer climates.
  • Complete Engine Tune-Up
  • Battery Replacement: an outdated battery will not perform well in cold temperatures.

Brake Repair: it is often a good idea to ensure your brakes work properly and have enough cushioning for lengthy road journeys.

Summer and Spring

Summer is the busiest season for technicians and body shops. Many individuals are planning holidays and road journeys. It’s a smart option to get your vehicle serviced in the early spring to save money and plan for any significant car bills. Many repair businesses are busier in the late spring and summer.

The following are the most prevalent reasons for having your car repaired in the spring/summer:

  • Tire Pressure: Before a road trip, ensure your tires have the proper pressure level to avert a blowout and boost fuel efficiency.
  • Wiper Blades: In the event of a storm, it’s an excellent option to replace every six months for greater visibility.
  • Fluid Check: Before embarking on a road trip, ensure that your fluid balances are good. Check your coolant levels in particular, as low coolant fluid might cause your car to overheat.

In general, the optimum time to bring your vehicle in for maintenance on weekdays is before noon. Technicians are busier in the afternoon, striving to get everyone’s cars back before the end of the day, and weekends are usually busy because most people have the opportunity to take their vehicle in on this day.

Springtime is the most popular time for consumers to fix vehicle problems, with window motors, window regulators, timing chains, and wheel speed detectors. The timing chain, for instance, accounts for 44 percent of issues and will almost certainly be replaced this spring.

On the other, automotive troubles during the summer include air conditioning failure, broken cooling fans, timing chain repairs, and window lift motors. The air springs, engine distributor, timing cover gaskets, and heater system will all suffer from freezing temperatures in the fall.

The icy winter season isn’t without typical difficulties. Your vehicle’s heater system, oil cooler lines, windshield washers, and headlight bulbs will need special attention during this period.
