Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic FAQ
Q: How often do I need to service my vehicle?
A: It depends on the vehicle that you have but it is best to follow the manufacturer’s recommendation. Get regular fluid changes as per your owner’s manual. This includes oil as well as brake, windshield and coolant fluids.
Q: How do I prepare my vehicle for a long trip?
A: The best thing to do on most vehicles is to have all of your periodical maintenance completed. If you stick to all of your as recommended by your manufacturer, your car is typically ready to go.
Q: Why do my brakes squeak?
A: The previous shop may have used inferior products to repair the brakes. Also exposing the vehicles to a lot of water or dust, such as taking a vehicle to a car wash, can also cause squeaking.
Q: The check engine light on my vehicle is going off, what should I do?
A: Before you continue operations make sure there are no other warning lights on or any instruments are out of range like temperature to high or low oil pressure. You should bring the vehicle in immediately and find out what’s wrong with it. The problem could be as simple as a loose gas cap or as complicated as a misfire that could damage the converter. In that case it could possibly damage the engine.
Q: Is it necessary to schedule an appointment?
A: It's best to call so that you don’t get here and find a full shop.
