MONTHLY CHECK LIST:

Taking your vehicle to D&D Tire Company each month can help make sure your vehicle is operating correctly and running smoothly. You can also raise the hood and not be intimidated by following a few simple recommendations for owner maintenance. A few minutes each month could save you money or repairs down the line.

  • Check battery cables, clamps and terminals
  • Check the following levels and add the recommended fluids as necessary:
    • Oil level
    • Engine coolant level
    • Brake fluid level
    • Power steering fluid level (if applicable)
    • Transmission fluid
    • Windshield washer fluid reservoir level
  • Check belts for tension, cracks or wear.
  • Check hoses for leaks, cracks or wear.
  • Inspect the engine and under the car for any leaks.
  • Check tire pressure on all tires, including the spare tire and inflate to manufacturers recommendations while cold.
  • Inspect the tread depth. The tread should be at least as deep as the head of a penny. (At least 2/32" remaining tread.)
  • Inspect tires for uneven wear or any object that could cause a puncture.
