Free Check Engine Light Scan!

check engine lightHave you ever looked at your dash and yelled “oh no!” as you saw the check engine light turn on? This can cause some anxiety but no worries! There are places that will plug in a machine into your vehicle and scan it for the code. The code can then tell you what is wrong with the engine or other part. Even though you can probably go to the dealer to get it scanned for free, you are stuck there for possibly hours and hours or even worse, you have to leave it for the day which messes up your schedule. After the ordeal, you will probably just tell them to fix it since you already have the vehicle there and now pay double or more! With the code, you can maybe do it yourself or pay less at an independent mechanic shop rather than the dealer price!

Solution! Stop into AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts. They specifically state on their website that they will scan your engine and give you the code for free. Then you can actually google the code right there and see how severe the issue is before you drive even further. The process should take no longer than 15 minutes and you are not trapped at a car dealership! You also have the option to get an estimate based on the code before you choose the dealer or a reputable mechanic! How cool is that! 

Let's face it, after a long day wait at the dealership, you will just probably leave it there instead of driving away. "Ain't nobody got time for that!" Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone. 

Free Flat Tire Repair and Free Tire Pressure Check!

flat tireGoodyear, according to their website, has been offering free flat tire repair. You would figure most places would charge for this. That is a cool service because those tire sealants in a can aren't that great for your tires. If they are able to fix it, it is free of charge! If not, well you will need a new tire, but it's worth the visit since you needed a new tire anyway, they can just replace the damaged tire.

You never want to drive on a damaged tire or a tire that keeps leaking so just find your nearest Goodyear location, they are everywhere!

 

The free tire pressure check is also good because proper tire pressure helps fuel economy and better tread wear. GoodYear Free Flat Tire Repair

Free Wiper Blade Installation and Free Battery Installation!

batteryAre your windshield wipers squeaking or not cleaning the water off the glass as it smears and streaks blocking you vision? Just drop by Advance Auto Parts, pick the wipers that you would like and ask them to install! Simple! You need wipers anyway, so you might as well buy them at a store that will install them for free. Who wants the hassle of installing wiper blades, especially while it is raining (bad attempt at humor here, I know!) but seriously speaking, it can be a hassle to change the blades. Skip the online shopping of wiper blades (see, no affiliate link here) and go to Advance Auto Parts.  Advance Auto Wiper Blades Installation for Free

Advance Auto does it again with another great service, free battery installation. You think wiper blades are a hassle to install, well who wants to change their own battery, especially if your battery has corrosion on the terminals. 

Just walk into their location, buy the battery and they will take out the old one and put the new one in! Very nice service. Saves time and who wants to go sit in a waiting room at the dealership watching reruns of some cheesy show to change a battery? Plus they state they will test your battery, starter, and alternator for free according to their site! Advance Auto Free Battery Installation
