Preventive Maintenance

Most of us aren’t mechanics, and some of us could care less about our car as long as it looks good and runs well…

The Car Salon Tire & Auto provides preventive maintenance services to customers in Calgary, AB. Many batteries are advanced and they no longer require too much maintenance. To be on the safe side, you should know where your car battery is located and check it periodically to make sure it’s not leaking acid and has adequate water in it to prevent it from failing. Most batteries have a condition indicator that displays different colors to indicate how it’s functioning. The color blue means it’s okay, red means to add distilled water and white means charging is necessary. Simple directions can usually be found on the side of the battery. Our auto repair shop located in Calgary, AB. is certified in batteries and will check over your other preventive maintenance areas for you.

Invest a few dollars in a bottle of antifreeze and keep it handy in your trunk or back seat. Antifreeze should always be added when the engine is cool. If the engine is warm, please take caution. Use a funnel as you would when adding motor oil to avoid splashing this greenish, toxic chemical on other parts of the car.Read more
