Vehicle Inspection

Keep Your Car in Peak Condition at Davies

You should not wait for your car to show problems before taking it to the shop. Preventive maintenance will help you avoid dealing with costly repairs later on, and will definitely prolong the lifespan of your vehicle.

Steering

If you want to ensure the safety of your loved ones and yourself while driving, it’s important to get an inspection for any parts that are not working properly, or have become run down over time, such as your steering and suspension. Because there are many issues related to steering that can lead to other problems in your car’s systems, having a specialist check it out is worthwhile.

Our Cathedral City Auto Repair experts will be able to pinpoint exactly what the problem is and fix it. The standard steering in vehicles is power steering, which uses a pump to pressurize the steering fluid. Over time, the hoses that are used for this fluid can become damaged or cracked, causing a leak. This is why it is crucial to have your car inspected on a regular basis. Because the power steering fluid breaks down over time and becomes contaminated with excess moisture, it is a good idea to replace that fluid to keep your steering working efficiently.

At Davies Auto Care, we care about your safety and want to help you repair any worn or malfunctioning parts to increase the performance of your vehicle and prevent any further damage. Give yourself the peace of mind you need and come into Davies Auto Care today for an important inspection.

Alignment

Although the details of alignment are complex with many carefully placed parts, the concept is simple. Without alignment, your car would not travel in a straight direction. Even a slight misalignment will cause more tire wear, which will eventually cost you more money.

So how does misalignment happen? It can be as easy as bumping your car into a curb or running over an object such as a pothole. Even natural wear and tear is a factor in misalignment as parts crack or loosen, causing the suspension to be put out of place. Because misalignment causes problems with suspension, it may affect your safety as well.

A regular inspection will give you the peace of mind that your vehicle’s alignment is correct. If your car’s alignment is off it will be more difficult to handle and can cause costly problems later on. To avoid early wear and tear on your tires, save money, and ensure your safety, stop by Davies Auto Care today to have your car’s alignment checked!

Electrical Diagnostics

There are many issues that your car can develop due to electrical problems; from blown fuses, to broken electrical wires, to faulty switches, to spark plugs and wires going bad. Depending on the model of your car, the many parts will vary. Newer cars have more complex, computerized systems. But no matter the type of car you have, most electrical problems stem from the battery.

If the headlights or stereo were left on, it can drain the battery. Sometimes all a dead battery needs is a quick fix by a jump-start or battery recharge. However, while this works if the battery was drained, it is not always the case. Car batteries only last 3-7 years and may need to be replaced. They can also become damaged or may not work properly due to a faulty component.

Another main problem that can occur is a broken or dead alternator. Signs of a dying alternator can be your headlights slowly fading, or if your car stalls. The alternator is what continuously charges the battery, so once the alternator fails the battery will eventually run out and stop working. If this is the case, you will need your alternator replaced.

Don?t let your car?s battery die by a faulty alternator or old battery. Bring your car into Davies Auto Care to have our experts inspect your electrical system and ensure that it?s working properly and efficiently, so you won?t get stranded or have to deal with the hassle and expense of future problems!
