Car repairs can cost a driver thousands of dollars if you don’t have extended warranty coverage. Even if you are covered, being without your car is still inconvenient. Here are two ways you may be able to see a major repair coming and stop it while the bill is still affordable and the repairs can be performed quickly.
#1 Check Your Coolant
This is particularly important during the summer months. If your engine starts to run too hot, you should get an alert on your dashboard. Heat is the enemy of everything mechanical (and electronic for that matter). Catching your coolant when it is low and refilling it may make the difference between an inexpensive bottle of coolant and a blown engine.
#2 Check Moisture Under the Car
Most of the time, especially during the summer, moisture that drips under your car is just condensation. But if you back out of a parking spot and see a small pool of liquid on the driveway or parking lot that has a rainbow appearance, bring your car in to get checked out. A worn seal is an easy fix. A bad transmission due to a leak that didn’t get checked can cost a fortune to replace.
