Changing wiper blades

Texas Automotive Maintenance | TX Preowned Car Dealer

You know it’s time to change your windshield wipers when they start skipping, splitting, streaking or squeaking. It’s important to stay on top of all your Texas automotive maintenance, especially your windshield wipers because they are important for driving visibility. It’s a scary thing to be stuck on the highway in Dallas during a downpour when your wipers aren’t functioning correctly!

As a general rule of thumb, windshield wipers should be replaced every six months to a year, or sooner if you notice a change in visibility. One way to remember to replace them is to make a habit of doing it on Groundhog Day–if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, you can expect 6 more weeks of driving in wintry weather. Otherwise, you can expect 6 weeks of driving in spring’s rainshowers! Either way, it is around that time that having properly functioning wipers is necessary for safe driving in unpredictable weather conditions around Arlington.

Texas Automotive Maintenance

There are a few signs to look for when inspecting your wipers that are indicative of the need for replacement. Check for any detachments or metal corrosion, as this means the wipers are old. Look for cracks, rips or uneven edges on the rubber squeegee. These are usually the cause for streaking, squeaking and skipping. If you try and bend the rubber squeegee and it feels a little stiff, more than likely it doesn’t conform to the shape of your windshield, also resulting in streaking. If you’ve checked all the above but still have compromised driving visibility, check to make sure the squeegee is securely fastened in the frame and that the wiper arm is properly installed on the wiper arm.

The reasons for wear and tear on wiper blades are the same as those that cause wear and tear on most things–nature’s elements. The sun, airborne debris and moisture all compromise the integrity of windshield wipers. Sand, dust, salt, rain and UV light weaken the wiper blades overtime, resulting in cracks and rips and then streaks and squeaks. In addition to environmental factors are those from the vehicle itself, such as oils from car waxes and exhaust.

While causes for wear and tear are inevitable, and therefore the need for replacement is as well, it’s an easy thing to check for and it’s a relatively cheap fix. If you’re unsure about your windshield wipers or would like some expert advice, contact our TX preowned car dealer or stop by–we’ll help you get things back on track!

Tire pressure changes with fall season

Texas Preowned Car Dealer Service | TX Used Vehicles

As the seasons change and the weather cools in Texas, tire pressure is affected. It’s important to keep an eye out for the tire pressure light to come on because tires can dangerously decrease in pressure with a decrease in temperature. If you’re unsure of what the PSI should be, refer to the owner’s manual of your vehicle.

As of September 1, 2007, the tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) was made standard among all cars sold in the United States. The TPMS triggers a warning light when tire pressure falls below a recommended PSI. If this light comes on in your Arlington Honda Accord in the fall and your last tire pressure adjustment was in the summer, it’s most likely because of decrease in temperature, as PSI falls approximately one unit per 10 degrees of Fahrenheit. Likewise, if your pressure was adjusted during the day or just after coming off the road, there may be a fall in pressure overnight. Therefore, if your TPMS light is on in the morning, consider the cool weather before panicking. Because the tires may increase in temperature while riding on the hot roads in Dallas or sitting in the sun during the day, the light may turn off. However, the tire pressure should still be checked and adjusted.

Keller Used Car Dealer

It’s important to address the TPMS light because even though it may be a simple explanation and easy fix, it doesn’t make driving on under-inflated tires any less dangerous. Because the friction between the tires and the road is increased with under-inflation, the risk for a blown tire is also increased. Also, having a negative effect on gas mileage and a compromise in the integrity of the tires, poor handling becomes an issue. With the risk for blown tires and poor handling at hand, there is an obvious rise in the possibility for an accident. There’s no excuse to put yourself in that kind of danger–or your precious Texas Nissan Murano for that matter!

In order to avoid the triggered tire light, be sure to check your tire pressure monthly. It should be checked in the morning when the temperatures are cool and the car hasn’t been on the road, and it is during this time that it should be adjusted to the correct PSI as recommended by the owner’s manual. If you’re unsure of how to check or adjust your tires, bring your car to our Texas preowned car dealer service area and we’ll have a look at it for you. While you’re waiting, you can browse our inventory of quality TX used vehicles!
