Preventative Measures to Keep Your Car in Good Condition

February 19, 2020




There’s no reason to wait for a big breakdown before tuning up your car. Making some small adjustments and repairs now will help your car avoid more serious issues down the line. Preventive measures not only keep your car in good condition; they also give you the opportunity to detect and fix any budding issue before they develop into something disastrous. Treat your car right with these basic preventive car maintenance tips.


Check Your Fluid Levels


Keep an eye on your antifreeze, power steering, coolant and wiper fluids and have them replaced when necessary. Some vehicles allow you to see the tanks directly, while most cars have gauges that will indicate how much fluid you should have versus how much is actually there. If you suspect a leak, have your car inspected immediately to prevent any dangerous accidents.


Timing and Serpentine Belts


How often you should have your timing and serpentine belts replaced depends on your particular vehicle. Every car is different, so be sure to consult your owner’s manual and a mechanic before having any part replaced. But don’t wait until it’s too late—if you replace your timing and serpentine belts when recommended for your particular vehicle, you’ll save money on more expensive repairs that are required when these parts break down.


Oil Change


Check your oil levels and consult a mechanic if you think your car needs an oil change. The old myth about changing your oil every 5,000 km isn’t true for every car—some cars can go much longer without oil changes, especially more recent models, so it’s important that you do what’s right for your particular vehicle. Again, consult your owner’s manual for a more information about when to change your car’s oil.

Don’t wait until you’re in serious trouble before giving your car a tune-up. A few simple preventative measures will keep your car driving safely and smoothly for a long time to come.
