What is a Windshield Wiper Checks & Replacements service?

Lube Stop’s Windshield Wiper Checks & Replacements service is the inspection and replacement of your windshield wipers.  This inspection includes a visual examination of the windshield wipers and their function.  If there are any signs that your windshield wipers are damaged or worn out, you should have them fixed or replaced to avoid a critical impact on the visibility of your windshield.

Lube Stop provides this service as needed.  To determine this, we look for any dirt patterns or scratches on the windshield, detachment of frame arms at joints or connection points, corrosion of the joints, claws, or any other areas, cracks, tears, or missing pieces.  Following that, Lube Stop also inspects for any dirt or debris pattern left on the windshield while the wipers are operating.  should these signs be present, we recommend replacing or fixing the wipers.  If the customer agrees, then we proceed with the Windshield Wiper Checks & Replacements service.

So, always bring any indicators of trouble to the attention of our Lube Stop technicians.  These include squeaking or chattering sounds when in use, skipping motion in the wiper’s movement, streaking, smears or gaps of moisture on your windshield, and reduced driving visibility, even with the wipers in motion.

From there, we will trouble shoot and determine if you need to replace or fix your windshield wipers.

We do all this so you can enjoy the benefits of a reliable and safe ride with perfect visibility especially during rain, snow, or other extreme weather conditions.

What are Windshield Wipers for?

Your vehicle’s windshield wipers serve as important elements that contribute to the overall safety of the vehicle.  This is why it is important to repair the wipers if there are any issues.

Windshield wipers are a small part of your car, but they make a big impact on your driving and overall safety.  They can remove rain, snow, dirt, pollen, frost, and other debris quickly and smoothly by one push of a bottom.  In some cases, windshield wipers may have to operate for a long period of time.  That is why over time they will crack, lose form, and lose their flexibility and functionality.  Wipers are made of three main parts such as the base, the arm, and the blade.  If any of these parts are damaged or non-functioning, the wipers need to be replaced.

Having windshield wipers that are in good condition allows you to have a safer ride and avoids any critical injuries and fatalities.

Context for these Services

Your vehicle uses an internal combustion engine.  This engine uses the combustion of fuel to power almost everything.  This is done when fuel alongside an air oxidizer and spark plugs creates a working fluid flow circuit inside a combustion chamber.

In your internal combustion engine, the expansion of the high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion applies direct force to some component of the engine.  The force is applied typically to pistons, turbine blades, rotors and nozzles.  This force moves the component over a distance, transforming chemical energy into useful work.

Typically, your combustion engine is fed with fossil fuels like natural gas or petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel fuel or fuel oil.  Your engine is the hub for many things, including those listed below.

  • combustion chamber
  • cylinder head
  • camshaft
  • set of spark plugs
  • valvetrain
  • valves
  • rocker arms
  • pushrods
  • lifters
  • fuel injectors
  • pistons
  • connecting rods
  • engine block
  • crankcase
  • crankshaft
  • timing system
  • timing chain

All these work in unison to power all the other systems within your vehicle.  Without a fully functioning engine, everything else suffers.  So, let us at Lube Stop keep your engine functioning and everything else that relies on it.

Maintaining your Vehicle

To do this, you must TAKE CARE of your vehicle.  That means changing the oil regularly.  It also means changing your filters regularly.  And, it means changing your fluids, lubricants, coolants and greases.  These maintenance parts don’t remain the same.  They get dirty, dusty, polluted, corroded and worn as you drive your vehicle from day to day.  So, if you want to extend the life of your car, truck or SUV, then you must maintain it and take care of it.

So, drop by our lube shops and get your oil changed, your filters changed, your fluids checked or flushed, your belts replaced … and so on.  We’re standing by!
