So once we are back to “New Fantastic” (after Covid-19) whatever that might look like. Let’s check out your vehicle. If you haven’t driven it at all the battery might be dead. Jumper cables are one of those must have in the car items! Get a neighbor to jump the car for you (black cable on black/red on red). Or if it is totally dead you may need to replace it.
Other areas to double check: Tires- if kept in one spot to long could develop flat spots. Have the tires inflated to the recommended tire pressure. If left in the garage, don’t forge about those little critters that love to nest in your car. Rodents can eat thru rubber and ruin filters. Spreading moth balls or cotton balls dipped in peppermint. If you do decide to put mouse traps, don’t forget to check periodically, otherwise you might have a stink!
Better yet start the car every 3-4 days. Driving it up and down the street could take care of a lot of the above problems. Need regular maintenance, Oil changed? Give us a call here at Ricks Auto Service in Mishawaka.
