Regular Repairs You Should Check with Your Cincinnati Car Mechanic
When it comes to regularly scheduled maintenance, you really should have a checklist, scheduled on an annual calendar, and follow it like clockwork. There are certain repairs that will need to be completed at certain intervals—either by timeline or mileage. This can include brake jobs, radiator flushes, brake fluid changes, replacement of belts, and regular inspections. Each vehicle follows its own particular timeline, but the pattern is always the same, whether you own a Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, or BMW. Talk to one of our repair technicians to see what repairs are required for your European car and when.
Our auto repair shop has delivered specialized European car repair to the greater Cincinnati area for nearly 2 decades now.
When it comes to car repair, you can save yourself a bundle simply by keeping up with the basics. Periodically give your car a personal inspection. Check everything that is standard. Make sure the headlights are in good condition. Make sure to check the air in your the tires (this can substantially save you on gas). Listen for strange engine sounds. Anything that sounds off you might want to refer to your Cincinnati mechanic.
Don’t forget to check your fluids. You can’t always rely on warning lights. In many cases, it’s too late by then. While many people remember to check their oil, they forget about power steering fluid, antifreeze, and brake fluid. Most fluids have built in dip sticks that make them easy to inspect. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for the less familiar options.
Sometimes Maintenance is as Simple As Checking Batteries and Filters
Check your battery for leaks and rust. In the case of rust build up, you can clean the battery and connections with a battery cleaning brush. They cost about $2 in any auto parts store.
Make sure to regularly replace cabin and engine air filters. You’ll generally know when these start to go because they’ll smell like gas or the engine. It’s a simple repair but also one that many forget.
Another simple repair you need to make to your car is switching out the spark plugs. Worn out spark plugs can seriously impact engine performance. This can lead to mileage inefficiency, or at worst it could mean a total breakdown. Make sure to have them changed regularly: generally about every 30,000 miles or so for most vehicles.
