Did you know that April is National Car Care Month? This brings attention to the importance of doing routine maintenance on your vehicle. The most common problems are lack of or worn fluids. Another very common problem that happens is air filters that needed replacement.
Proper maintenance of your car is important. You may not realize that it will cost you a lot more if you choose not to have maintenance done. If it is ignored, you may end up spending more in repairs. Many repairs can be avoided. If your battery is almost worn out, it is less expensive to replace it while it is still working, than to let it completely fail requiring a wrecker. It could also strand you in a very unsafe area.
The fluids are one of the most important things if you want your car to last. Of course oil is essential to long engine life, you should get in the habit of checking it if you don’t already. Worn oil can be an issue and not give your internal engine parts the protection they need. Coolant is also extremely important. A lack of coolant can cause your engine to overheat and result in your engine being ruined. Power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and brake fluid are all things you should check. Most cars have yellow letters stamped prominently on the caps of things that you need to pay attention to.
