Alameda, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
The Alameda oil change and auto repair experts at Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service want customers to drive in safety and comfort this summer. To help keep its customers safe while traveling, the auto repair center is offering tips to prepare vehicles for trips.
1) Before adding hundreds of miles on a car during a trip, consider when the last oil change was. The oil needs to be changed on a regular basis to ensure that the moving parts of the engine continue to function well. Alameda Auto Lab provides oil change services, and with its current oil change filter and lubrication promotion, it will also check tire pressure, brakes, all vital fluids, lights and belts (trucks, vans and SUVs cost extra).
2) Tires need to have the proper pressure, be free from cuts and slashes, and be properly aligned. Taking these simple precautions can prevent what could otherwise be a serious or fatal vehicular accident. Alameda Auto Lab provides complete tire alignment and repair, and also provides labor for axle replacements.
3) Air conditioning systems should be in top condition. As the weather gets hotter, air conditioning units take a beating. Inefficient air conditioning in cars not only produces less cool air but also makes the engine work harder. Alameda Auto Lab repairs air conditioning units so customers can enjoy a cool car environment.
4) Worn spark plugs need to be replaced.
“When a spark plug wears out, it can cause inefficient combustion resulting in fuel waste,” Robert Ramos of Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service said.
Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service also recently supported the 16th Annual Meals On Wheels Community Faire Fundraiser, just as it has been doing for years.
The expert mechanics at Alameda Auto Lab can repair and maintain all domestic cars, foreign cars, diesel-engine vehicles and RVs. The company was awarded “Best Alameda Auto Repair Shop” three times by Alameda Magazine.
