Make Your Old Ride Seem New Again

November 25th, 2016

So your old beater car or truck has seen better days, has it? Well, it doesn’t have to run and drive that way. With the right care and a good wash/wax/vacuum job,Truck Accessories in College Station TX it can suddenly be the vehicle you always loved again.

Here are some great ways to get your vehicle running and driving great again:

--Change your air filter. If it’s been awhile, the filter may be dirty enough to restrict airflow into the engine and hurt fuel economy and power.

--Oil change: You know you should be changing the oil at regular intervals anyway, and your engine will thank you for this simple task. If your vehicle has more than 100,000 miles on it, consider a synthetic blend high-mileage oil. High mileage oil contains seal conditioners that can swell gaskets and seals which may have dried out and shrunk,  heading off leaks, and its friction modifiers and other additives can work well with the looser tolerances of a worn-in engine.

--Wheel alignment/tire rotation/wheel balancing: These three fairly minor preventive maintenance items can be enough to take a vehicle that’s driving a bit squirrelly and once again give it the road manners of a new car.

At BCS Tires & Lifts, we can help you out with these and other auto repair/preventive maintenance items. But more than that, we can hook you up with custom accessories for your truck or SUV. Dress up your vehicle with things like:

--Lighting kits

--Side steps

--Grill guards

--Bull bars

--Lift kits

--Tool boxes

That’s all with professional installation in our service department…it’s what we do for a living, and we make sure the job’s done right every time.

Not everyone can afford the down payment and monthly note on a newer vehicle…and sometimes when you get attached to your truck, you just want to keep driving it regardless of what it looks like. There’s no reason to be embarrassed about your truck, though.
