Tips To Properly Take Care Of Your Car

By Dave Parsons

Should you browse around your neighborhood, you may find two or more cars in your neighbor’s garage. You might question, how do they make their cars last long? Taking good care of your car is one of the things that will certainly extend it’s lifespan and these are the basic steps you can take to achieve this:

Change Oil – Changing your car’s oil is very important for any car’s machinery system. Although the majority of drivers change their car’s oil every 7,500 kilometers, professionals recommend changing every 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers of distance traveled. When you don’t change oil frequently, you may expect your vehicle to break down once in a while.

Fluids – Have your brake, transmission and power steering fluids checked regularly and be sure you refill as required.

Proper Tire Inflation – Your cars have to be inflated up to and including certain pressure is important. An under-inflated tire may cause your vehicle to run much slower than the speed it had been created for. You could do a test if your to know if your car’s tire is properly inflated or not. The first thing you have to do is draw a line across the wheel using a bit of chalk for the part that touches the ground. Let the car roll off, letting the wheel spin 2-3 times. If the majority of the chalk has been erased from the center, then your tire is over-inflated. However, if the chalk marks on the sides which have thinned, then your tire is under-inflated chalk it is worn off more on the sides then it is under-inflated. Also, in case your car is under-inflated, it will use up more gas.

Batteries and Cables -Regularly check your car’s batteries and cables. It is important to check your car’s batteries because these provide power to your car for flipping on your headlights, honking the horn along with other energy-consuming functions. When your car runs out of battery while you’re on the road, this may put you at risk.

Wires – You need to look at your car’s wiring and specifically look out for peeled wires. These may cause your car’s electronic system to malfunction and may even make it stop while you’re on the road. Again, this could be dangerous.

Air Filter – Your filters also needs to be changed regularly. Though many individuals would only change their filters once after changing oil twice, that is wrong. It will be better should you would change your air filter every time you change your car’s oil.

Window Cracks – Leaving a crack on your window unfixed is not a good practice whatsoever. Regardless how small that crack is, it may always grow larger with time. If you find a crack on your windshield or any of your car windows, have it repaired immediately.

They’re very easy, routine steps for taking care of your vehicle and making it stay in good shape for as long as it can.
