Change the Oil Regularly

This is one of the most important things you can do to preserve the life of your vehicle. Regularly changing the engine oil protects all of the moving parts in your engine. You know, the thing that makes your car run. It’s also important that you replace the engine oil filter according to your maintenance schedule.

Keep Your Vehicle Clean

Cleaning your vehicle does more than keep it looking its best. It removes irritants that can damage the exterior paint, corrode your engine, cause harmful friction, and more. Plus, who doesn’t like a fresh, clean ride?

Change the Fluids

There’s more to your engine than oil. Be sure that your radiator, transmission, power steering, and brake fluid are properly maintained.

Maintain Your Tires

Keeping your tires maintained provides a number of benefits. Proper inflation will maximize your handling and gas efficiency. Keeping them properly aligned and rotating them will extend the life of your tires. Remember, tires are meant to wear out and be replaced, but if you keep on top of them, they will run for far longer.
