Now make a habit of conducting regular vehicle maintenance and you’ll avoid possibly expensive breakdowns as well as increase the life of your car. You can do some basic routine car maintenance yourself, by adhering to a regular schedule as mentioned in your owner’s manual.

  1. Read your owner’s manual thoroughly

Most of us hardly refer to the owner’s manual that is usually squirreled away in the glove box or some other storage spaces. If you miss it somewhere, you can get an electronic version though online. Or you can get in touch with your dealer for a copy.

Take a note of the intervals to schedule a regular maintenance every time without a miss. These regular maintenance items include the engine oil and filter change, tire rotation, belts and hoses, and more.

  1. Change your oil and oil filter

Oil is the life blood of your vehicle’s engine. It acts as a lubricant, keeping essential engine parts from abrasion against each other and destructing the engine. If you don’t change your car’s engine oil on a regular basis it can damage the engine as amassed particles produce friction and cause rubbing parts together.

  1. Take a monthly inspection on your tires

Your car tires need to be inflated the right way to do their job, as well as to lessen the chances of wear & tear and blowout. If you want to know the correct tire pressure for your tires, refer to a placard located on the driver’s door jamb or in the owner’s manual. Examine your spare tire as well while you’re at it and check all pressures with a tire gauge once the tires have rested.

 

  1. Check fluid levels

Engine oil isn’t the only fluid to check, you have to keep an eye on brake and transmission fluids, coolant, and washer fluid. You can visually inspect their levels by removing their lids of brake fluid, coolant, and washer fluid. It is advisable that you don’t remove the radiator cap to check coolant as it is quite risky.

  1. Check belts and hoses

Inspecting the hoses and belts in the engine bay is one step beyond basic routine vehicle maintenance. These hoses optimize coolant flow to guarantee the engine doesn’t overheat. If a hose is detached or displays cracks or bulges, then get it changed.

Likewise, assess the belts too. If this belt is likely to be torn or worn, or showing signs like cracking, glazing, and material loss, then replace it.

Now that you have learned to keep your car in great working condition by following these regular check-ups. Just inspecting is not enough though. You should take your car to the mechanic for regular maintenance as per the scheduled intervals.
