Making Your Car Service Fun
An inspection that is done to a vehicle before you can renew its registration is often called a rego or pink slip inspection, and this inspection is often needed for any vehicle that is more than a few years old, for vehicles that have been modified in any way, and for vehicles that have received a defect notice. While a mechanic can tell you how to get your vehicle ready for its pink slip inspection, note a few ways you might avoid costly and unexpected repair bills before you can get that registration renewed, and how to ensure your car has the best chance of passing a pink slip inspection.
Unless you happen to be an automotive expert, purchasing a used vehicle from a private seller has the potential to be a minefield of uncertainty. Unlike buying from the manufacturer or a licensed retailer, it can be a case of buyer beware. Aside from the mandated cooling off period (which varies from state to state), such purchases don't always come with a warranty. This is why a professional pre-purchase inspection can give some much-needed peace of mind.

Note a few questions you might have about air conditioning maintenance for your vehicle, so you can ensure you're doing what's needed to keep yours in good working order and functioning optimally.
Hello! My name is Richard and this is my new blog. I used to hate servicing my car. I would avoid doing it if possible. The idea of getting my hands dirty and covered in oil. However, all of this changed when I made friends with the local mechanic when I was drinking in the pub. He invited me to hang out with him at his auto repair shop and he explained how to make servicing your car fun. Since then, I have been taking a big interest in maintaining my car. I hope you find this blog useful and entertaining.
