Keep Your Car Ready With These Fluid Tips From Coast Nissan

Monday, October 16th, 2017

During the hot summer months, you rely on water to keep you hydrated and cool. Water keeps the body running cleanly and efficiently, and it is important to drink plenty throughout the day. Your Nissan also relies on many liquids such as coolant and transmission fluid in order to run smoothly. It’s important to keep the levels of these fluids from dropping too low, and they must be regularly monitored. Fortunately, Coast Nissan has a few tips you can use to quickly examine each fluid level, or you can visit our San Luis Obispo car dealership and have them examined by our trained professionals.

Oil

Oil is the lifeblood of the engine, and keeps it lubricated and operating at maximum efficiency. Oil gets dirty with regular use and must be changed around every 3,000 miles. In order to check any fluid, first make sure the car is parked on level ground and the engine is cold. For the oil, find and remove the dipstick and wipe it clean. After, re-insert and remove the stick, then consult the markings on the dipstick.

Coolant

Coolant is always important to keep an eye on, but is even more vital during the summer. Your engine can easily overheat and cause expensive damage if the coolant suddenly runs out while the engine is already hot. In most cars, it is stored in a clear plastic container by the radiator, and should have markings indicating the recommended levels.

Brake Fluid

If you notice that your brakes seem less effective or less responsive, the brake fluid may be running low. Like the coolant, it is generally stored in a clear reserve, and can be easily replaced. However, these symptoms may also indicate a leak or that you need new brake pads, so bring your car into Coast Nissan for expert Nissan service and a thorough inspection of your car.

Explore These Family Friendly Golf Courses Near SLO

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

While golfing is a fun activity and a great way to relieve all the stress that has built up during the work week, playing a long course can take time and often is expensive. Additionally, longer courses and holes can be especially difficult if you haven’t golfed in a while or simply have younger kids who want to play. Instead of heading out for a four to five hour game on 18 holes, there are several smaller courses around San Luis Obispo, CA where you can relax and enjoy a fun round of golf with your kids. Here are a few courses that Coast Nissan recommends for family fun.

Mr. Putters Putt Putt

Even if you are a serious golfer, it’s hard to not enjoy a game of putt putt, especially with all the interesting courses and ease of play. All you need is a putter and a ball and a couple of friends, and it’s a blast trying to navigate the wonderfully decorated and designed holes. The course is clean, the staff members are friendly and they are even installing a pizza kitchen so you can have a bite to eat after playing your round. Family members of all ages will enjoy this activity, and it never hurts to work on your short game.

Laguna Lake Golf Course

For a golf trip that lies in between putt putt and an eighteen-hole adventure, try the executive-length (par three) golf course down at Laguna Lake. It has been rated highly, has one of the best maintained layouts in the area and offers scenic views along the way. The par three classification means that each hole is relatively short and easy to play, while still offering a fun experience for just beginning and accomplished golfers.

Much like you need a golf cart when golfing, you also need a reliable car when heading to work or dropping the kids off at school. Coast Nissan offers affordable deals on new and used cars along with top quality Nissan service so you can be satisfied in your long-term investment.
