With Summer already a distant memory, there are some checks you can make to your car to ensure you’re not let down this coming Winter!
Brake Fluid is hydroscopic
That is it absorbs water. The more water is absorbs the less efficient at pulling you up it is when you need it to! It can also cause damage to parts of the system that are designed with brake fluid in mind opposed to water, so definitely get this checked before it costs you money as well as impact your safety. At Tunehouse we test brake fluid for water content and tell our clients when they’re at the tipping point before any of this becomes a problem.
Shocks Wear out
They can even fail. What happens when this happens? Well you might say they get noisy which is half right. The truth is unfortunately that a faulty or worn shock can cause all sorts of safety problems well before it is noisy though. Worn shocks ultimately mean your tyre spends less time in contact with the road – that is when turning, when stopping as well as when accelerating. An electronic test at Tunehouse can show signs of wear and failure well before any noise will.
Batteries Don’t Like the Cold
There isn’t enough to go into the science behind it but it is unfortunately true. A car battery that is starting to feel the effects of aging may start the car OK in warmer months but can be all but useful over one good cold night. Test ahead of time to save being caught out in the cold! At Tunehouse we can perform a Battery Load test which will show us the early signs of a battery that is starting to fall over or can easily give you the green light this winter if all is well!
At Tunehouse we invest in the very latest diagnostic equipment so that our customers have the very best information to decide how they want to maintain their cars. Does your workshop explain why you need to replace something or simply tell you it’s due? At Tunehouse you will get the most accurate, un biased advice all year round!
