Change Oil & Check Fluids
It is important to check your engine oil, to ensure it is full. Take a look at your owner’s manual to see how often your oil should be changed, and stick to the suggested schedule. Also check the other fluids in your vehicle to ensure they are filled to the proper level.
Replace Windshield Wipers
Windshield wipers should be replaced about every six months. After the summer sun dries the blades out and the winter salt damages the blades, it is time to replace your wipers. The rubber portion can become damaged over time and will not clear your windshield properly. A new set of wiper blades can easily be installed, allowing you to easily clean the windshield.
Look at Tires
On a regular basis, you should check your tire pressure. Proper air pressure in your tires helps promote tire wear and a safe ride. Uninflated tires are 3 times more likely to cause an accident, according to Esurance®. It is also recommended to rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, to prolong tread life for your tires.
A clean air filter can improve your vehicle’s overall performance. If you pull the filter out and cannot see through it, it is time for a replacement.
Check Over Engine
It is important to look at your engine on a regular basis. From belts to connection wires, ensure all components are in proper working order. Ensure your engine is clear of debris that can cause damage to the vehicle. Give your engine a once over to make sure connections are secure, to prevent a malfunction for your ride.
