Whether traveling a long distance from home, or needing reliable transportation for short errands, making sure your vehicle is in good mechanical condition will help to insure that each journey is completed without problems. As the reliability of motor vehicles has improved, and the mechanical complexity has increased, it has become difficult to find qualified service centers that can help in the event of an unexpected problem. A mechanical breakdown will quickly impede the best made travel plans.
At Geiser's Garage we want to help make each journey, whether near or far, is a safe and pleasant one. We offer a vehicle safety inspection service where we try to spot problems before they leave you stranded on the side of the road. Our vehicle safety inspection includes the following...
The vehicle safety inspection does not include the cost to repair any problems that might be discovered. If a problem with the vehicle is revealed, Geiser's Garage will provide a quotation for any repairs and will seek consent from the customer before proceeding. Fluids that are found to be below the vehicle manufacturer's recommended level will be filled at no charge using fluids that meet or exceed the manufacturer's recommendations. Any fluids that are specific to the vehicle manufacture will incur an additional charge and customer approval will be sought before any action is taken.
When using conventional motor oil it should be changed every 3,000 miles. If using synthetic motor oil and a premium oil filter then the oil change can be extended to 6,000 miles. An oil change also provides the perfect opportunity to check other fluid levels and inspect other components for potential problems.
Tires are expensive to replace so maximizing the miles a set of tires can provide is a worthy goal. Performing periodic tire rotations will help the tires wear evenly and extend the life of the tires. Rotating tires also offers the opportunity to check the tire pressure and inspect each tire for uneven wear, a sign that could indicate a suspension problem or the wheels are out of alignment.
The air filter should be inspected at regular intervals and, depending on the driving environment, it may need to be replaced. The brake system should also be inspected for signs of leaks and wear. Over time the belts and hoses begin to deteriorate and so periodic inspection should also be performed.
The fuel filter cannot be inspected so it must be replaced at regular intervals. The fuel filter removes small particles that accumulate in the fuel tank over time. As the fuel filter loses capacity it will cause the engine to hesitate during acceleration and lead to poor engine performance.
The battery should receive periodic testing to verify that it has maintained the capacity necessary to provide reliable service. This is especially important when approaching the winter months where the cold weather will place a greater burden on the battery. The typical life of a battery is five years, but regular testing can help prevent a surprise encounter with a dead battery.
Engine coolant contains chemicals to lubricate the water pump and prevent corrosion of metal parts. It is important to replace the engine coolant at regular intervals. Likewise, hydraulic fluids in the brake and power steering systems must provide lubrication. Over time these fluids absorb moisture which leads to corrosion and should be replaced.
