Your car is a rather large investment you’ve made in your transportation. Whether you rely on it for work, driving kids to school, or you simply need a set of wheels throughout the week, your vehicle is likely one of the largest purchases you’ll make. Due to this, you need to do what you can to preserve your car.
Preserving your vehicle with regular car maintenance doesn’t need to be difficult. Simply call the experts to perform basic car maintenance. Our team here at Brown’s Collision Center is here to assist you with your vehicle maintenance and repairs! Here are a handful of suggestions for how to preserve your car through basic car maintenance:
Have Your Fluid Levels Checked
This is something you need to have done. We see far too many major issues with vehicles that could have been avoided simply by having your fluid levels checked. You might already know you need to have your engine oil checked, but there are so many other fluids you need to have checked. These include your transmission, brake, power steering, and coolant fluids. It doesn’t take long to have these checked, yet you’ll stay on top of potential issues.
Don’t put off that oil change. Over time, your engine oil will start to burn and collect gunk. You don’t want this continually flowing through the engine. Yes, the filter will collect some of the debris, but only to a certain extent. Additionally, when you take your vehicle in for an oil change, make sure you receive a new filter as well. Your oil change provider should be doing this anyway, but always safe to ask.
Make sure to have your tires rotated regularly. This helps their tread wear evenly. This will help prevent your car from pulling to one side or the other. And, if the tread is starting to crack, or if you use a quarter and can’t see the top of Washington’s head, it’s time to invest in new tires.
When you purchase your vehicle, it comes with an owner’s manual (if you don’t have yours you can find it online). Within the owner’s manual, you’ll find a recommended car maintenance schedule. This car maintenance schedule is important to follow. Some parts of the vehicle will begin to break down before other parts, so you’ll want to have these parts replaced. Replacing the parts before the equipment fails will keep your repair bills to a minimum. It’s always less expensive to swap out a belt than to have it fall apart on the highway and be forced to deal with the other associated repairs.
