Guess what starts tomorrow?  If you guessed The Masters Golf Tournament you were right on!  April 5-8 the best golfers in the world will tee it up at Augusta National for one of the most coveted titles in the world of golf.  If you are a weekend golfer there is nothing better than watching Tiger Woods or Rory McElvoy walking down the fairways lined with azaleas and magnolia trees.  This really is a “must see” if golf is your thing.

The Masters, of course, signals that spring is upon us in a big way and that means summer is right around the corner. Major League baseball has begun and if the Boys of Summer are playing then your vacation is coming up soon.  Vacations, of course, mean traveling and traveling means having your vehicle running properly so you can enjoy every moment of that hard-earned time off.

Now is the time to do a vehicle maintenance inspection.  Maybe you have a cracked windshield that needs attention.  Have you checked those tires for wear and tear?  How about the transmission fluid and the oil level?  Some of the simplest maintenance tasks can mean a great deal to your car, van or truck.  Drivers would be amazed at the thousands of dollars that could be saved on repair if only the fluid levels had been checked on a regular basis.  All of those moving parts in your engine and car parts need lubricating so get out there and check them now.

How are your brakes?  Are they a little sluggish or is your foot almost touching the floor board when you press down on them?  It might be time to replace the rotors and/or calipers.  How about that transmission of yours?  Is it shifting smoothly?  Whether it be an automatic transmission or a manual, make sure you pay attention to how smooth it shifts between gears.  If there is a bump or grinding or if a gear slips you may need some replacement parts very soon.

Listen! We really want you to be able to enjoy that summer vacation and the last thing you need is to be stranded on the side of the road going nowhere.  Come in and see us at All Import Auto Parts.  Tell us what you need, let us pick up the used part from our salvage yard and we will have you back on the road again in no time.  Replacement parts are inexpensive and reliable at our junk yard so do not delay doing that vehicle maintenance inspection.
