We all know that car maintenance is very important to have your vehicle in good conditions and ready for the road. But many people often forget to check that everything in their car is working correctly or procrastinate when it is time to give it some repair. 

In this update to our 2018 blog, we will show you ten car repairs that you shouldn't put off before school starts! As you must have your vehicle ready to move back and forth from class to class. 

  1. Oil Change: Make sure to get your oil changed often. If you need help, remember that we are here to assist you! 

  2. Changing a flat tire: Your car's tires are like your feet! They need to be in excellent condition to make sure you are safe on the road and move from place to place without any issues. 

  3. Changing car battery: We all know that it is a nightmare when your car's battery dies while on the road, and worse, in the middle of nowhere! Checking and changing your car battery is something that you shouldn't skip. 

  4. Replace your head or tail lights: Not having your head and tail lights is not only dangerous, but it is also illegal to drive with your lights not working correctly. It can also be challenging to change them depending on the model of the vehicle, but luckily our expert team is here to help you! 

  5. Change brake pads: Make sure to have your brakes in good conditions, prevent an accident on the road, and be ready for any obstacles! 

  6. Replacing windshield wipers: We all know that we don't often use our windshield wipers. It is essential to inspect them frequently to have them in good conditions and see the road without difficulty under unpredictable weather. 

  7. Check and replace air filter: You should replace your car's air filter every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. This helps your car engine work properly, as having the air filter dirty will cause it to get clogged and damage your car's engine! 

  8. Removing scratches from paint: Scratches can be the worst thing in the appearance of your car! But you can get rid of the frustration with a simple DIY job. 

  9. Transmission replacement: Not checking or replacing your car's transmission can be a headache later on. For this same reason, you should ensure that you take your vehicle to your car repair to get it fixed as soon as possible.  

  10. Timing belt brake: Your timing belt connects to the engine's base to ensure the values open and closes properly. Having it break is a big problem!
