Informative car care tips

Increase your car's lifespan by following some basic maintenance rules.

Maintenance checks must be conducted at regular intervals.

As a basic measure, ensure

that you change your car

fluids on time.

 

In order to keep your car functioning smoothly, get your regular oil changed every 3,000 miles and synthetic oil changed every 5,000 miles.

Essential car care and maintenance tips

Keep your vehicle running smoothly by changing the brake fluid, antifreeze fluid, and transmission fluid every 30,000 miles. You must replace your air filter every year or after

12,000 miles and fuel filter after 2 years or 24,000 miles. It's also advisable to schedule a maintenance check after every 15,000; 30,000; 60,000; and 90,000 miles.

 

To prolong the life of your tires, you must rotate them after every 5,000 miles or 6 months. Always remember to check your tire pressure for fuel efficiency, easy handling, and comfort.

Don't forget to get your spare tire properly inflated in case of any emergent situations. It's recommended to wait at least 3 hours after driving and get your tires checked when they're cold. If you've got badly aligned wheels, we'll align them right away.

 

You can use the penny trick to check if your tire's tread is worn out - take a penny and put Abraham Lincoln's head in one of the grooves of the tread. If part of his head is covered by the tread, then the tire is fine. If you can see all of his head - the tread is worn down to 1/16 of an inch - then tires must be replaced.

There are various solutions to improve the gas mileage of your car. To start with, you can

improve your fuel efficiency by getting your air filter checked or replaced every 6 months.

Do not top off your car's gas tank when it's already full because it would either slop around

or seep out of the tank.

 

Keep gas from evaporating by making sure that your gas cap is not damaged, loose, or missing, and is tight at all times. You'll be surprised to learn that more than 147 million gallons of gas evaporate due to a gas cap that's not tightened correctly! Park your car in the shade as the hot summer sun can also cause the gas to evaporate.

 

It's advisable to use the right oil for your car. Using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil can help to improve your car's gas mileage in the long run.
