Keeping your car on the road can be a lot more affordable than having to have it repaired because you haven’t kept up with your preventative maintenance schedule. Preventative maintenance is just that – a way for you to make sure that your car operates reliably in the Cleveland and Parma Heights area. At the Parma Height’s Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center, we specialize in making sure that your car works when you need it to. What are some of the issues that we look for in preventative maintenance? Here are just a few:

  • The condition of your braking system. Brakes are made up of many different components. During our preventative maintenance check, our auto experts will look to make sure that not only do you have enough brake fluid, but we’ll make sure your brake pads, calipers and rotors are in good condition.
  • We’ll do an oil change. It might sound like a routine service, but having the oil changed on your car can do wonders. Not only does it improve gas mileage, but it also can help prevent worn out oil from allowing friction between sensitive engine parts. Oil changes take just minutes and can really assist with prolonging the life of your engine.
  • See how you are shifting. The transmission is responsible for shifting the gears of your car. When it isn’t working correctly, you may hear grinding or feel like your car is having issues with shifting. The car care technicians at the Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center in Parma will check to make sure your transmission fluid and lines are working correctly.
  • Prevent tire trouble. Tires wear out over time and worn out tires are not only a safety hazard, but they can cause an issue with your ability to get traction on slippery and wet surfaces – something we see a lot of in the Cleveland area. The tire technicians at Rad Air’s Complete Car Care & Tire Center will check your tread level and can recommend new tires if they are necessary.
  • Keeping your engine cool. For both warm and cold weather, making sure that you have enough coolant in your radiator can keep your car moving. Without the correct amount of coolant available, your car may suffer from overheating, which can leave you stranded on the side of the road.
