The Importance of Multi-Point Inspections

December 15th, 2016 by

Looking Under The HoodYou may have noticed that your Chevrolet maintenance schedule includes an item called “multi-point inspection.” This is an essential maintenance task that some drivers tend to overlook. While a multi-point inspection doesn’t include replacing or repairing any specific items, it’s essential for the continued reliability of your car. Find out more about why you should trust the expert maintenance and service professionals at Chevrolet of Homewood with your next multi-point inspection.

Why You Need Multi-Point Inspections

Whether you depend on your vehicle to get to and from work every day or you only take it out on the weekends, it’s still essential to have it inspected by experts periodically. The road, weather, age, and everything else can wear on your vehicle, and if you don’t carefully monitor its condition, you might miss signs of a developing problem. Most of the time, with careful regular multi-point inspections, any issues can be spotted early and repaired with minimal cost.

So what does a multi-point inspection include? It includes an inspection of essentially every major wear component, including:

  • Engine Oil
  • Brake Fluid
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Coolant
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Windshield Washer Fluid
  • Fuel System
  • Engine, Transmission, Drive Axle
  • Engine Cooling
  • Shocks and Struts
  • Belts and Hoses
  • Air Filters
  • Steering Components
  • Exhaust Components
  • Battery Health
  • Seatbelts and Restraints
  • Chassis Components

Plus, while our technicians are examining your vehicle for wear and tear, they have the opportunity to spot any issues with other major components like engine, driveline, suspension, chassis, and more. In fact, oftentimes more serious issues can be detected by spotting problems with components like your tires, battery, or fluids.  A multi-point inspection really is the best way to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance, and the best way to avoid unexpected breakdowns.
