What’s Included in Routine Auto Maintenance?
While different vehicle makes and models have different maintenance schedules, part of routine maintenance usually includes changing various system fluids.
Regular engine oil changes are perhaps the most important of these in order to keep your engine lubricated and prevent damage to the car. Changing your oil every 3,000 – 5,000 miles or every six months is a good habit to form – although you should follow your manufacturer’s maintenance schedule.
It is also recommended that you get regular fluid changes, including coolant which regulates engine heat, transmission fluid, brake and power steering fluid.
All of these auto maintenance items keep your vehicle in the best shape in any road or weather conditions and are a vital part of extending the life of your vehicle and preventing costly repairs.
What Else Needs Regular Maintenance on a Vehicle?
Changing your car’s cabin and engine air filters are as important to your vehicle’s health as any other part of routine maintenance.
Engine air filters should be checked and replaced so that the air going into your car’s engine is clean and not filled with smog, dirt, or other impurities. This allows the engine to run more efficiently, which can improve performance and fuel economy.
Oil filters are almost always changed along with the oil itself, and allows the oil to flow to the critical moving parts of the engine where it is needed for lubrication and heat reduction.
A clogged oil filter can prevent proper oil flow and damage the engine.
Scheduled maintenance can be one of the most important things you can do to keep your vehicle healthy and safe.
Since this is such an important part of being a car owner, you want to make sure you’re getting the best level of service at a price that’s fair.
