Inspect and maintain tires
The very first thing that we are going to draw your attention to is your tires. These are aspects that can be easily overlooked until major problems start to arise. That’s why it’s better to keep up with them sooner, rather than later. The first thing you need to do is to check your tire pressure consistently. This means either inflating or deflating your tires to match their desired PSI. After you have done this, check your treads to see how worn your tires are, and if they are worn unevenly. Tire rotations are key!
Change the oil
We don’t want to harp on getting your oil changed too much, but this is a key feature of making sure that your vehicle lasts as long as it should. Your engine needs clean and fresh oil, and the damaging effects of old oil can be extreme. This could mean having to replace pieces in your engine, or your entire engine. Bad oil can turn into sludge, and even change the performance of your engine, which leads to more gas being consumed, and more money spent. Avoid any of those problems with consistent oil changes.
This is another small step that does a lot of good in the long run if you are able to keep up with it. The main fluids to be looking at include engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. We highly recommend stopping into our service center for many of these fluids, especially if you are not comfortable with checking any of these for yourself. They should be at the appropriate levels at all times.
The very last thing we are going to mention today is having your brakes looked at. Everyone can understand why brakes are so vital to your vehicle’s operation, but that means having a certified technician give them a closer look. You never want to be having problems with your brakes, especially during the winter months.
