The Importance of Preventive Car Maintenance

Of the items that you’ll purchase during your lifetime, an automobile is one of the most expensive. Taking care of preventative on your car offers a sense of relief because you can rest easier knowing that you and your family are safe. To make sure that your vehicle has a long lifespan and to protect your investment, it’s important for responsible car owners to have their car inspected from time to time. To ensure your safety and your car’s dependability, manufacturers specify preventative maintenance that needs be addressed and inspected to keep the warranty intact.

 

The team at AutoPro Auto Service encourages responsible car owners to make sure that their cars get preventative maintenance so you can have some peace of mind. Here are just a few things to be on top of when it comes to preventive maintenance.

Keep all fluids clean and at the proper levels

Oil cools and lubricates the engine of your car. The engine overheats and puts out pollution when the motor oil is low. Your owner’s manual will give you recommendations as to when you should check your oil. Transmission fluid and windshield wiper fluid are other important fluids to be mindful of.

Keep tires properly inflated and aligned

If you want your car to be safer and have a longer lifespan, it’s important that you make sure that your vehicle’s tires are in good shape. Veering off in one direction is an indicator that the alignment is off. By keeping your tires inflated to the correct pressure will improve gas mileage.

Check the battery

Your car battery should be checked periodically so you’re certain that it’s not leaking acid and that the water level is good. Most automobiles have a condition indicator that shows different colors that tell you the condition. Whites means that charging is necessary, blue means that it’s ok, and red means that water needs to be added.
