What exactly are our techs inspecting? Essentially they’re inspecting various areas that are tantamount to your body’s vital organs. Fluids, tires, suspension, belts and hoses, and your vehicle’s drivetrain are checked during our multi-point inspection of your vehicle.
Oil is checked for proper levels, as well as cleanliness. Some other fluids we check are coolant, transmission fluids, steering fluid, and even windshield washer fluid. Fluids help lubricate various systems, reducing friction, which equals to less wear and tear.
Tires and suspension components are also checked. Tires are the first contact point your vehicle makes with the road, so we naturally verify that the wear is within compliant levels of safety. Of course, all of that bumps that your car takes are ultimately absorbed by your various suspension components. These components affect steering response, handling, and even comfort. This part of the multi-point inspection is especially important if your vehicle is getting higher in mileage, or if you purchased your vehicle used, as these parts tend to absorb less effectively over time.
If you’ve ever opened your hood and seen belts whirling around like a ballerina performing pirouettes after drinking an industrial grade energy drink, then you’ve seen just how mesmerizing those belts can be. And just like a ballerina captivates an audience, so too do belts captivate various engine parts, capturing them in a motion that move various essential parts. And in likeness, hoses also bring a sense of focus to your vehicle’s various parts, as they (the hoses) direct the attention fluids and such to where they need to be. In kind, our qualified technicians will examine your vehicle’s drivetrain, and it’s all in an effort to keep you in a vehicle that runs optimally.
