For many of us, buying a car is one of the biggest and most important investments we will ever make. This is why it is so important to protect your car so it can run at its best. By doing so, it will not only last longer, but it will also be safer for us and our passengers. Below we share 4 tips to help you maintain your car tuned up as time goes by.
Change your oil and filter regularly
Oil is crucial to keeping your car’s engine running properly. Check your car’s manual or talk to your service provider to make sure the oil and filter are changed according to the mileage and time specifications recommended by the manufacturer. It is also a good idea to check all other fluids, such as the coolant as well as the brake, transmission, and power steering fluids. Remind your provider to inspect the fluid levels, especially if you notice a leak.
Keep an eye on tire pressure
Keeping an adequate tire pressure can help reduce tire wear and support fuel efficiency. In addition, this will also make your car safer, since having a very low tire pressure can cause an unexpected tire blowout. Cars usually have a sticker on the driver’s side door jamb with the information about the adequate pressure for each tire.
Change the wiper blades
In a rainy climate like ours, wipers are vital for us to drive safely. Time and usage harden the rubber of wiper blades until it becomes brittle and eventually cracks. This can reduce its capacity to efficiently remove water from the windshield. If it is becoming harder to see the road through the windshield when it rains, it is probably time to change your wiper blades.
Keep your insurance up to date
Reviewing your insurance policy is just as important as inspecting your car regularly. This will help you know if the insurance coverage and limits are up to date and if they meet all your current needs.
