Under the Hood

Suspension Service at Tyler's Automotive

rsz suspensionserviceWhen you hear the word 'suspension', you may think back to those energetic days of grade school. Well, your car’s suspension is actually a good thing because it keeps your car up off the road and helps provide a comfy ride. It needs to keep your wheels firmly planted over bumps and through curves. Your suspension system has many parts. If you look under your car, it’s basically everything that connects your wheels to the car’s frame. These are heavy duty parts that do a lot of work. They need to be inspected for damage and excessive wear at least once a year. A good time for this is when you get your annual alignment service.

Here are some warning signs that your suspension may have problems:

  • the car pulls to one side;
  • it wanders;
  • the steering is erratic;
  • you see uneven tire wear;
  • you experience a poor ride or handling;
  • you see oil leaking from shocks

. . . you get the picture. You just don’t feel in control when you’re driving.

10 Overlooked Services

Let's talk about automotive service schedules and particularly, the scheduled services that are sometimes forgotten. We like to refer to this as Unperformed Maintenance.

We have a list of 10 service items that are often overlooked. They're all very important and need appropriate attention. So here we go, in no particular order.

1. Power Steering Service
Be honest – have you ever thought of this on your own? Your power steering fluid gets dirty and builds-up moisture over time. Cleaning out your power steering system means that dirt and gum are removed and your power steering parts are protected from corrosion. Ask your Tyler's Automotive Service Advisor if it's time for a power steering check-up.

2. Wheel Alignment
When your wheels are out of alignment your car pulls to one side. It's pretty annoying, but it's also dangerous. And it causes your tires to wear out really fast – which is expensive! Most owners' manuals suggest you get your alignment checked once or twice a year.
