Recommended Fall Services

Check Tire Tread and Replace if Necessary 

Special attention should be paid to the tread on your tires, especially for the gray, rainy days that often occur this time of year in MO & KS. Without sufficient tread depth, your vehicle can’t properly grip the road.  Under wet weather conditions, scarce tread depth can cause a vehicle to hydroplane which often leads to crashes.  Preventing it is simple because you can check your tread with just a penny

Radiator Flush

The coolant in your radiator doesn’t last forever and over time it can break down and start to corrode the inside of your radiator. This can lead to cooling problems and radiator repair. A radiator flush once a year is cheap insurance against radiator repairs.

Check your Headlights

Sometimes you don’t notice that you have a bulb out. Now’s a good time to take a look to see if you need to replace a headlight bulb. Not only is it unsafe to drive with one headlight, you can get a ticket!

Belts & Hoses

Have belts and hoses checked to ensure that belts are not worn and fittings are tight.
