When looking for reliable and trustworthy summer car prep services, your best decision is to bring your automobile to Ray Skillman Southside Buick GMC, which serves the Indianapolis area, including Greenwood, Smith Valley, Southport, and Bargersville, IN. Our certified technicians will make the process of getting your car ready for summer a snap.
Your air conditioning is vital to have in top-notch condition for summer, especially when you live somewhere with incredibly high temperatures. The cooling system needs a refresh every two years with lubricant and gas. A technician will check for leaks and any other issues affecting the system. Regular maintenance of this system should save you money and a headache from replacing the system prematurely.
The cooling system inspection checks all of the engine’s cooling system components. A professional will assess whether the coolant is in proper condition and make sure that there aren’t any leaks. If you notice that your vehicle is overheating, you must contact us and bring it in as soon as possible to prevent further problems.
We inspect tires for tread wearing unevenly. When our technicians see this issue, they’ll conduct tire rotation or alignment. We also check for tire pressure issues. If there happens to be low pressure in your vehicle’s tire(s), we’ll use our specialized equipment to determine the exact amount of deflation and then determine what the cause is so that we can fix it quickly and efficiently.
When you’re out driving in the summer, you don’t want to be stuck somewhere without a working battery. The battery provides the charge to your start your engine and keeps it running, so it’s one of the essential parts of your vehicle. Before taking it for any out-of-town trips, have our expert technicians do a battery inspection to determine that it’s in good working condition. This includes a test to ensure that the battery provides the engine with a proper charge.
The lights on your vehicle need to stay in excellent condition. If a light goes out and you need to drive at night, this can lead to getting pulled over or even potentially getting into an accident. Ensure that you have maintenance done on them routinely and that they get repaired right away.
The air filters for your cabin and engine are so important. The cabin air filter keeps the air cleaner inside your vehicle. The engine air filter only allows clean air to get into the engine. You must replace these filters regularly.
The PCV valve, otherwise known as the positive crankcase ventilation valve, is at the bottom of your engine, and it plays a role in preventing oil leaks. If you notice misfiring, leaks, or poor fuel consumption, among other issues, it can mean that your PCV valve is dysfunctional and requires a professional fix.
