Checking the fluid level on your transmission is fairly easy, but a bit more complicated than checking your oil. Firstly, this only applies to automatic transmissions, and secondly, some modern cars don’t have dipsticks or dipstick tubes to check and add transmission fluid. With that in mind, here are some tips from Mercie J Auto Care in Mesa, AZ in regard to checking your transmission fluid.
A battery isn’t something you would expect to be affected by weather; as long as it’s charged, most batteries just work. Vehicle batteries, however, are actually noticeably impacted by cold weather. You may notice on especially cold mornings that your vehicle is a little slower to start then normal...that’s because your battery struggles a little more than usual in the cold.
Unless you are confident in your abilities as an automotive mechanic, there is really only one rule when purchasing a flood damaged vehicle: don’t do it. Unfortunately, sometimes sellers aren’t particularly straight-forward with their used cars. Many will try to hide the fact that it’s been damaged by flood waters at all or try to convince potential buyers that the car is in fact fine. “It has gone months with no issues” or “technically it is flood damaged but” are two red flags, and while it isn’t impossible for a flood car to be fine, it’s altogether a good idea to stay away.
