You love your car! Why wouldn’t you? Like most people, you’ve probably spent a lot of time selecting, test driving, and designing special customizations to make sure that it fills your every want and desire! Surely, after all, you’ve invested, you want to make sure that your car lives as long as possible! Therefore, making sure you are following your vehicle maintenance schedule is important!

Here is a checklist of three car maintenance tips and the reasons why they are pivotal to your car’s livelihood:

  1. Oil Changes - The golden rule to change your oil every three thousand miles; may or may not be true. Depending on the type of oil, some cars can go up to 10,000 miles before needing an oil change. Read your manual to know what type of oil your car uses. Also, check your dipstick regularly. Neglecting to change your oil could damage your engine!
  2. Spark Plugs - Spark plugs create the ignition combustion needed to start your car. They give the engine power to start your car and to keep in running. Spark plugs should be changed every 30,000 to 100,000 miles depending on the type used for your vehicle. Similar to oil changes, not replacing spark plugs can affect your engine and cause an immediate breakdown. 
  3. Tires - Keeping your tires in good condition is easy, and bad tires is dangerous. They lead to poor vehicle performance, hydroplaning, blowouts, and poor traction. You should change your tires when there is too much vibration in the vehicle, cracks in the sidewalls, and visible tread wear.
Following the vehicle maintenance schedule is vital for better performance & safe driving. Ask your mechanic for advice about suitable car maintenance intervals

Quality Oil Changes save Major Money in Engine Repairs

Car maintenance is not cheap, but it saves a lot of money over the long haul. Regular oil changes are needed to prevent engine damage, which can run up to thousands of dollars. Compared to a $4,000 mechanical bill, the average of $120 a year is peanuts to keep the oil changed and the engine running cleanly and smoothly.

When you lift up the hood of your car, you can see how many parts are all connected to the engine. The moving parts and engine components create friction as your car travels down the street, and without proper lubrication, they will heat up fast. Regular oil changes maintain lubrication under the hood, which allows all the parts to work together smoothly and with a minimum of friction, which means your engine is less likely to overheat.

Don't skimp on oil changes to try to save money. It will cost you more in the long run with major engine repairs. Find oil change coupons to help save you money

Wheel alignment is a major part of maintaining the safety of your vehicle. If the car alignment has been lost, you are going to notice a difference in the way your car steers and handles on the road.

You may wonder exactly what will be different? You are going to notice that the steering is pulling to one side or the other. The steering wheel will also be off-center; it will look like it is turned even though you haven't moved the vehicle yet. It is going to be harder to handle. You want the car to go one way and the vehicle wants to go another. You may also notice a shake or vibration in your vehicle.

A lost wheel alignment could cause driving problems and can cause an accident. If you're having poor car alignment issues, be sure to have it checked out early
