The following services are covered in our digital courtesy inspection:

1. AC Inspection

We recommend you get your car's air conditioning system checked by a professional mechanic or automotive technician at least once a year. An AC inspection is important, especially before the start of the summer season. Regular maintenance and inspections may prevent major AC problems, such as leaks or compressor failure. You should also pay attention to any unusual noises, odors, or changes in the performance of your AC system and have it inspected as soon as possible if you notice any issues.

2. Tire Inspection

Inspecting your car's tires is important for several reasons:

  • Safety: Tires that are worn or damaged can be a safety hazard on the road, increasing the risk of accidents, blowouts, or other tire-related problems. Regular tire inspections can help identify any issues and allow you to address them before they become a safety concern.
  • Performance: Properly inflated and maintained tires can improve your vehicle's handling, braking, and fuel efficiency. Regular inspections can help ensure that your tires are performing at their best and making the most of their capabilities.
  • Cost savings: Catching tire problems early can help you avoid costly repairs or replacements down the road. Regular inspections can help you identify issues before they cause significant damage to your tires or other parts of your vehicle.
  • Longevity: Taking care of your tires through regular inspections, rotations, and maintenance can help extend their lifespan and save you money in the long run.

Overall, inspecting your car's tires is an important part of vehicle maintenance and can help keep you safe on the road, improve your vehicle's performance, and save you money in the long run. If you are worried about your tire health, contact our team at Paul Campanella’s Auto & Tire Center. We also provide free tire plugs as a quick fix.

3. Car Code Scan

You can get your car codes read for free at auto repair shops such as Paul Campanella’s Auto & Tire Center. We offer free code reading services using a diagnostic scanner tool that connects to your vehicle's onboard computer system and retrieves information about any trouble codes that have been stored.

However, it's important to note that free code reading service is limited to retrieving the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and do not include a comprehensive diagnosis or repair of the underlying problem.

If you're experiencing car problems and need a more thorough diagnosis and repair, it's recommended to take your vehicle to a professional mechanic or automotive technician who can perform a complete diagnosis and provide a comprehensive repair solution.

4. Brake Inspection

Hot weather can affect your car's brakes, particularly if you're driving in extreme temperatures or in mountainous terrain. Heat generated during braking causes brake pads and rotors to overheat, leading to decreased braking performance, brake fade, and even brake failure in extreme cases.

In addition, hot weather can cause brake fluid to boil and reduce its effectiveness in transmitting force from the brake pedal to the brakes themselves. This can cause a spongy or unresponsive brake pedal and increase the stopping distance of your vehicle.

To prevent brake problems during hot weather, it's important to have your brakes checked regularly by a professional mechanic or automotive technician, especially before any long trips. It's also important to use your brakes carefully and avoid prolonged or aggressive braking that can generate excessive heat. Additionally, you should avoid overloading your vehicle or towing heavy loads, as this can increase the strain on your brakes and make them more susceptible to overheating.

5. Wheel Alignment

Having your car's alignment checked and adjusted is necessary for summer driving, just as it is for any other season. Proper wheel alignment ensures that your car's tires are pointing in the right direction and making maximum contact with the road surface, which improves handling, steering, and overall driving safety.

In the summer months, roads can become hot and dry, which can lead to changes in the road surface and affect your car's alignment. Additionally, summer often means more road trips and longer drives, which can put additional strain on your vehicle's suspension and steering components. This is why it's a good idea to have your car's alignment checked before embarking on any long summer trips to ensure that it's properly aligned and ready for the road.
