- In Maintenance Tips
Jiffy Lube of Indiana here with another vehicle maintenance tip you can utilize during your day-to-day life. This handy tip is about tire valve stem caps and why they are important.
Car tires tend to lose air over time, it’s only natural. However, tire valve stem caps are used to keep air leakage to a minimum. These caps prevent dirt and moisture from reaching the valve. If you drive around without these caps, your valves can clog up and start to leak air, causing your tires to become flat. So, do your vehicle a favor and make sure to always drive with your tire valve stem caps on. If you accidentally lose one (which tends to happen), replace it as soon as possible.
Tire maintenance is key to keeping your car on the road. If you need help, just visit your nearest Jiffy Lube of Indiana location and ask for the Jiffy Lube Tire Rotation Service. Our certified technicians will inspect your tires for damage, check your tire air pressure, and rotate your tires according to proper rotating procedure.
