Maintaining your car is essential to keep it running smoothly. For people who spend more time driving their cars than looking after it, car maintenance can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Follow these basic car maintenance tips to get the best use out of your car and keep it running smoothly for longer.
1. Get acquainted with the kind of car you drive
Do research on the specific kinds of care that your brand of car needs; read your vehicle manual and go to a mechanic who is trained to fix that particular model of car.
2. Create a schedule for servicing your car and stick to it
Some people service their vehicles once a year, others do it twice or thrice. It is important to service your car as often as needed to head off problems before they develop completely.
3. Keep all fluids clean and topped up
Top up your oil as needed and go for an oil change when necessary. Put water in your radiator and keep your coolant and transmission fluid topped up as well.
4. Check Your Tire Pressure Regularly
Check the pressure and general condition of all your tires and change them as needed to ensure that you’re not at risk while driving.
5. If you must replace parts on your car, use only original parts
To preserve the integrity of your car and prevent further issues with same parts, ensure that your mechanic sources only original parts for use on your car.
6. Pay attention to the lights on your dashboard
Those lights are there for a reason. If any light comes on, get the corresponding part checked as soon as possible.
7. Have your car professionally washed and waxed as often as you can
It might suit you better to wash your car at home, but having it done professionally once in a while is important to keep the car looking shiny and great.
