There are plenty of ways for drivers to keep their vehicles running as well as possible. Preventative maintenance is critical for the continued performance and long lifespan of any car, and every vehicle has unique needs. There are a handful of services that every driver should incorporate into their preventative maintenance schedule. Schedule these services with your trusted auto maintenance shop, Auto Stop Limited!
1. Tire Rotation and Related Services
Drivers should check their tires’ tread and pressure regularly, but some other routine tasks are necessary to boost handling, safety, and gas mileage. Tire rotation helps spread wear evenly over each tire, and tire alignment and rebalancing are also critical.
2. Oil Change and Filter Replacement
You should take great care to visit your local auto maintenance shop for oil changes as recommended by your owners’ manual or mechanic. While you are getting your oil changed, your mechanic may recommend replacing the oil filter, air filter, or both. These filters are essential for trapping contaminants in motor oil and your cabin’s air.
3. Battery Cleaning and Inspection
A malfunctioning car battery can put a damper on any drive, particularly if the solution is not as simple as getting a jump. Some experts recommend cleaning your car’s battery terminals every six months. If you cannot remember the last time you had your terminals cleaned or see visible buildup or corrosion, stop by your auto maintenance shop for cleaning and inspection. Your mechanic can test the battery level to make sure that everything is in working order.
4. Fluid Top-Off and Belt Inspection
Finally, the experts at your local auto maintenance shop can help put your mind at ease by inspecting your serpentine and timing belts and topping off any necessary fluids. These belts often need replacing after forty-thousand miles or so, and there are a handful of fluid levels that your mechanic can check. Be sure that your vehicle has an appropriate amount of power steering fluid, coolant, windshield wiper fluid, and transmission fluid.
