For many, purchasing a vehicle is a big expense. You want your vehicle to last as long as possible. Vehicle maintenance is a big part of extending the life of your car. By performing these routine services, you can find yourself with a car that lasts years longer than a car that doesn’t receive the proper maintenance it needs. Citywide Towing is here to share some vehicle maintenance tips that will extend the life of any car.
Get an Oil Change Regularly to Obtain Benefits of Fresh Engine Oil
The oil in our car needs to be in great condition to help your car’s engine work the way it should. Most cars need to have the oil changed between 3,000-5,000 miles. When oil gets old and dirty, it can cause friction in the working parts of the engine.
Engine Air Filter Replacement
Give the air filter the attention it deserves. On average, your air filter should be changed every 12,000 miles. Not only can neglecting your air filter cause engine trouble, but it will also affect your gas mileage.
Fix Minor Car Repairs Promptly
No one wants to deal with car trouble. When you are facing a repair on your vehicle, you may want to go as long as you can until the problem prohibits you from driving further. When you do this, you will likely be facing larger repairs that cost more than they would have initially.
Tire Pressure Monitoring
The pressure in your tires will change the way their wear drastically. When tires are under inflated, there is more of your tire making contact with the road. You should be able to look in the owner’s manual of your vehicle to see what the recommended tire pressure is. Your tires will wear evenly when you follow these recommendations. Healthy tires will keep your vehicle safe while on the road.
