OIL & FILTER CHANGES
These are easy to do yourself and a cost-effective way to extend the life of your vehicle. Follow the change intervals recommended in your owner’s manual to help your engine perform better.
WHY UPGRADE TO SYNTHETIC?
Synthetic oil protects engine surfaces better and draws more heat away from the engine to allow it to perform at its maximum capability for longer.
WHAT’S DIRT-HOLDING CAPACITY?
It’s the total amount of contaminants a filter can trap before entering bypass mode — when oil stops being filtered before returning to the engine.
WORN BLADE SYMPTOMS
If you spot splits, cracks, tears, corrosion or the rubber’s inflexible, replace your wiper blades.
WIPERS & LIGHTS CHECK
Inspect your wiper blades, including the rear one, and check your vehicle’s interior and exterior lights to make sure they’re working properly.
Turning your full headlight system on activates other required light systems, such as your parking lights, tail lights and rear-licence plate light. Daytime running lights are specifically designed to make your vehicle more visible during times of good light conditions.
TEST YOUR BATTERY
Summer's heat can be hard on your battery, especially if you’re also running your air conditioning, charging your phone and have a music player plugged in. Have your battery tested to determine its state of health, so you know it can deliver when you need it to.
SCRATCH & DENT REPAIR
No matter how careful you are with your vehicle, nicks and bumps are inevitable. Once you spot damage, take the time to repair it right away, so it doesn’t get worse.
Cut a dime-sized hole in a piece of paper. Hold the paper on the car, with the area that needs repair exposed in the hole. Spray on the clearcoat, but stop as soon as the paper starts to sag.
Don’t forget to rust proof in these often-missed areas:
– Around headlight casings
– Bottom of doors
– Behind the wheels
– On trunk lip seal
– Inside of retractable roof compartments
Go for a truck bed liner that’s easily applied and highly durable.
