Tire Pressure Monitoring and Adjustment in Berkeley, CA
Tire pressure monitoring used to be left in the hands of the vehicle owner. One would look at the tires, and if they looked about right, all was well.
Modern vehicles contain amazing number of sensors, including tire pressure monitoring sensors that communicate with your vehicle’s onboard computer. If any of the tire sensors indicates incorrect tire pressure, the computer will turn on TPMS warning light on the dashboard.
At Oceanworks in Berkeley we highly recommend keeping tires properly inflated. There are several benefits – smoother ride, better handling, better gasoline mileage, and less tire wear. In order to ensure that your vehicle’s tires are properly inflated, whenever you bring your vehicle to our Berkeley auto repair shop – whether for service or repairs - we check the tire pressure and adjust it to manufacturer’s specifications.
We also recommend that you visually inspect tires between services. While the TPMS system is pretty reliable and will warn you of major tire problems, there it is a good practice to visually inspect tires for under-inflation. It’s also good to see if there are any unusual patterns of wear on the tires – this could indicate alignment problems or control arms needing replacement. Just give us a call and make an appointment. Our technicians will find the root cause of the problem and will let you know how it can be corrected.
Whenever you bring your vehicle to Oceanworks, we provide you with following benefits:
- Original Equipment or better quality parts
- 2 year / 24,000 mile warranty
- Same day service (in most cases)
- Nationally ASE certified technicians working on your vehicle
