How to Avoid Costly Auto Repairs in Reno Nevada

Have you been putting off your vehicle getting serviced because you’re afraid that the auto repairs may be costly? The key to keeping auto repair cost low is to maintain regular car maintenance. Let’s take a look at warning signs that your vehicle needs to be seen by an auto repair shop.

According to an article at EzineArticles.com, “Auto Warning Signs to Keep in Mind”

18263637_s“Intellectually, everyone understands that their car needs auto service regularly. However, with all of the distractions of your daily life, it can be difficult to keep up with the maintenance your automobile deserves. Here are a few key things to keep an eye on to remind you it may be time for maintenance.

Squeaky Brakes

Every now and then, take a moment to turn off your radio and listen to your brakes when your car first starts moving. Squeaky brakes are usually an indication that your brake pads are wearing out, but the sound can also mean that your tires are wearing out. Many car service companies will offer free brake inspections, allowing you to get an idea of your exact brake situation. If you ask, they can usually even give you an idea of how long you have before you’ll start causing harm to the vehicle.

Trouble Starting

If your can has started needing a bit of coaxing before it will turn over, there is a chance that something serious, like the starter or alternator, needs to be replaced. However, it can also be as simple as needing a new battery. An auto service shop can read the existing power in your battery and determine if it needs to be replaced.

Dust Buildup

Have you ever noticed that suddenly your car seems to be retaining a layer of dust on the dashboard? You clean it, have the car vacuumed, and the dust just keeps coming back. Just like your home air conditioner, your car has a built-in filter to absorb dust as it moves through the air conditioning system. Your filters at home need to be changed every few months, so it should be no surprise that your car’s filter needs to be replaced regularly. A normal inspection service can typically give you an idea of the state of your filter and when it will need to be replaced.

While it may not seem like a big deal, a dirty filter can cause unforeseen complications. When it’s full, the air conditioning system has to work harder to send cool air into the car. This can cause problems not only with the AC, but also with any other part of the vehicle that is involved in the conditioning process.” To read the entire article click here.
