Preventative maintenance is the automotive equivalent of eating well and working out.

If you want to take care of your car and keep it on the road, the automotive mechanics at Wickliffe’s Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center would tell you that preventative maintenance is the best thing you can do to protect the investment you have in your car. Encompassing much more than simply oil changes and changing wiper blades, preventative maintenance looks at all of the critical systems in a vehicle and checks to make sure that they are running optimally. Here are just a few of the items that we check during a preventative maintenance visit at the Wickliffe Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center:

  • Check your radiator coolant. Coolant helps to control the temperature of the engine. If your coolant isn’t filled, you can run into issues no matter the season, leading to expensive radiator repair and even other engine expenses. Our car care specialists can determine if you need just a top-off or a radiator flush.
  • Tire maintenance, evaluation and replacement. Tires do more than give you good traction. They prevent accidents, ensure excellent gas mileage and even help take some of the shock of driving on rough roads. Our Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center tire specialists in Wickliffe can quickly assess the condition of your tires and recommend new ones if needed.
  • Shifting issues with your transmission. Any type of grinding or trouble shifting from one gear to another may mean you need transmission service. During our preventative maintenance services we carefully check your fluid and hoses to make sure that your transmission is working correctly.
  • Preventative maintenance for brakes. There is no way to operate a car without excellent brakes. The car care experts at the Wickliffe Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center will carefully evaluate the stopping power of your brakes during our preventative maintenance service and let you know if you are due for rotors, pads or other parts.
  • Oil changes protect engine parts. Clean oil and fluids circulating through the engine is a cornerstone of our preventative maintenance service. Every time you drive your car, oil breaks down. The lack of viscosity and contaminants can damage the internal parts of an engine. Let us change the oil in your car regularly for optimal performance.
