Winter weather may have come early this year, but now more than 40 senior citizens are prepared to drive when more weather hits.
For the second year in a row, Lincoln-Way Central has partnered with the Village of New Lenox and its Safe Communities America Coalition, the New Lenox NAPA, and Country Financial to provide free vehicle inspections to seniors ages 60 and up to help them prepare for winter.
Lincoln-Way automotive students, under supervision of an auto shop teacher, offered the following services:
• Check fluids – engine oil, trans fluid, brake fluid, coolant, power steering fluid and windshield washer fluid
• Check belts and hoses Inspect tires for tread wear, cracks and dry rot Inspect underside suspension and front end parts Load test batteries
• Check coolant strength for freeze protection Check headlights, turn signals, parking lamps and registration plate bulbs
