Here at Dresden a trained, qualified mechanic with the expertise and equipment will do the job correctly and will perform most of the maintenance on your car. Additionally, you can do the following simple checks and procedures to help prevent problems - and extend the life of your vehicle:
Change the oil and oil filter regularly
Check all the fluids
Check the air pressure level in your tires at least once a month
Make sure all your lights work
Replace the windshield wiper blades periodically
Inspect the engine belts
Check the air filter
The owner's manual for your car will specify exactly how often you should do this, but a good rule of thumb is to change them every 3,000 to 4,000 miles. If you change the oil and filter yourself, be sure to dispose of the used oil properly.
This includes brake, power steering, transmission, transaxle, windshield washer and antifreeze fluids. Your owner's manual will tell you how to check these.
Your owner's manual should specify the ideal air pressure for your particular tire.
This includes headlights, turn signals, brake lights and taillights.
If your wiper blades are cracked or torn, or if they begin to streak, it's time to replace them.
They should not have cracks or missing segments.
The filter should be clean, not clogged or damaged.
