There are many things we can do to keep our vehicles on the road. One of the most essential steps is to keep it well maintained. What are some of the things we can do to keep it properly functioning? Why would we want to continuously do routine maintenance on the car? Finally, when should these jobs be done on your automobile? Here is a list of some of the most important maintenance jobs to keep up with on your car and how often you want to perform it.
The following is a list of the many checkups we must perform on our cars regularly:
- Oil and Coolant Levels
- Air Filter
- Tire Pressure and Tread Depth
- The Headlights, Brake Lights, Turn Signals, and Parking Lights
- Oil and Filter
- Rotating the Tires
- Waxing the Car
Much like your short-term checkups, long-term checkups are an essential part of the maintenance of the car. Here are some of the checkups you should perform periodically:
- Check the Transmission Fluid
- Transfer Case Fluid
- Make Certain the Shocks and Struts are Functioning Properly
- The Coolant Fluid Exchange
- Spark Plugs
- Serpentine Belt
- The Front and, or Rear Differential Fluid
These regular maintenance items are typically recommended during 30/60/90K mile services.
Just like routine maintenance checkups and long-term checkups, your car will need checkups depending on the time of the year. Here is a list of checks you should run regularly depending on the season and the driving conditions the season brings.
- Replacing Windshield Wipers
- A Battery Performance Check
- Changing the Tires
- Checking Coolant Levels
Sticking to a regular schedule of when and how to check your vehicle's fluids and working components will aid you in keeping the vehicle on the road. Do these checks regularly to avoid costly repairs.
