Here’s a comprehensive list of car maintenance tips and checklists for every car owner
Inspect your vehicle regularly. Take a walk around your vehicle at least once every week. While you take a walk, inspect your car and look for body damage. You should also inspect your tires for any wear, punctures or cuts and test every lock, window and even the sunroof.
Check your air filter. A lot of car problems arise when your air filters are clogged or if they fit loosely. Air filters block dust, pollen and other contaminants to keep your engine healthy. But when dirty, the air filter can reduce the airflow into the engine, robbing your vehicle of power, reducing performance and fuel economy. It’s recommended that you replace your air filter every 12,000 miles.
Check your tire pressure regularly. Tire pressure can impact the Fuel economy. It also affects the comfort and handling. Your car’s owner manual will have the recommended tire pressure mentioned on the owner’s manual. Generally, the tires pressure check should be done every week.
Check your battery. Your car battery is one of the most important components required for it to run. The car’s battery is responsible for providing a large amount of electrical current for the starter, engine and other electronic accessories in the vehicle. Extreme temperatures affect the performance of the battery so regular battery testing will ensure that the battery will perform when you need it to.
