The Aspects of a Service Interval at the Start of Every Season

For a summary of what a seasonal service interval comprises, browse the details below.

Oil Changes

Your engine requires a different viscosity of oil for each season. Winter dictates thicker oil while summer demands thinner oil.

And when installed with every season, you're never allowing your engine the harm of oil contaminated or degraded. In this instance, important engine parts may be left damaged without proper, fresh lubrication.

Engine oil also regulates engine temperature. This a prime concern during the heat of summer.

Tire Rotations and Service

It might seem obvious that each season demands a little something different from tire assortments. Though in any event, treads need to be effective in ensuring handling and traction.

At Michael's Car Center, tire rotations evenly distribute wear across your tire assortment. This procedure also constitutes an opportune time for our factory-trained technicians to inspect tires for sidewall cracking, pressure and valve health.

And with certain patterns noted on treads, it might signal issues with brakes or wheel alignment.

Brake Systems

Brake systems comprise various parts and components. And as you may imagine, your vehicle brake system holds special significance to safe operation past Port Huron.

From rotors or discs to pads and calipers, each part needs to be free of rust or corrosion. Given location and role, parts' degradation is exponentially furthered.

By having your vehicle brake system inspected, our technicians may identify parts whose surfacing is too denuded or calipers rusted shut.

Wheel Alignment

It's often during winter, a vehicle front end meets with a fair share of abuse. This stems from those potholes and pavement seams consistently pounding away at your front wheels.

Resultingly, the angle and tilt of your front-wheel assortment will be thrown off to a degree it's felt when driving. Noticed will be a distinct veering or pull to either side, especially at high speeds along I-94.

Utilizing special equipment and tools, wheel-alignment corrections promote safer, responsive steering.
