When checking under the hood of your car for routine maintenance and to prevent major problems, there are several things that you can check on your own. Check the vital fluid levels for brakes, power steering, windshield washer and coolant. Make sure to check your oil and make note of the color and consistency to see if it is time for an oil change. Check your air filter and replace it if necessary. Tire pressure is also important and should be checked when your tires are cold. Refer to your car manual for proper inflation amounts. Also, don’t forget to check your windshield wipers for wear. See how to change them if necessary. We check all of these things and more as part of our car inspection service. These are all important things to check when it comes time for your Pennsylvania State Inspection.
