Summer is on the horizon and we’re excited for warm weather! There’s nothing quite like a summer road trip with family or friends – and an important step before heading out is making sure your car is ready, too. The expert mechanics at Dorsch in Green Bay are here to help get your car in top shape and fix any issues the harsh winter may have brought on! Here are a few things you should consider having checked.
Riding with the windows down is fantastic, but you’ll likely want the air conditioning at some point during the summer! Even if you don’t, it’s important to make sure your air conditioning system is working properly. An easy way to find out if there are any issues is by turning the air on full blast. If it doesn’t reach maximum chill temperature soon, there could be a problem. Our mechanics can run a full diagnostic on your system!
Belts & Hoses
The dry winter air combined with subzero temperatures takes a toll on your entire vehicle, but particularly the belts and hoses. Our seasoned experts will inspect everything to make sure they’re operating properly and replace any that aren’t.
Feel like your vehicle isn’t getting as great of gas mileage as it should? It could be the oxygen sensor. This helps set the fuel mix that goes into your engine. If it’s not working properly, it causes too much gas to be used and can cut your gas mileage by up to 40%. This is something that should be done every 30,000-50,000 miles or so.
