Automotive Mechanical Maintenance

08-08-2019

Each new car comes equipped with an owner’s manual. Within the pages of the owner’s manual, you will find all of the information that you need to help you keep your new car mechanically sound. Of course, we don’t all buy new cars. Many of us will buy used cars and the owner’s manual is rarely included, but you can get one if you really want one. Most car dealerships can get a manual for any of the models of the cars they sell. Also, you can look online to find owner’s manuals for the make and model of the used car you have just purchased.

For many years, the standard for oil changes was every three months or every 3,000 miles, whichever came first. Today, most car manufacturers do not recommend that the oil be changed that frequently. However, if you cannot find the specifications for your used car, the three month/3,000 mile rule will work.

The fluids in a car need to be checked on a regular basis. All fluids need to be checked regularly. I check all of the fluids in my car when I wash it once a week. Tire pressure should also be checked weekly. Tires that are overinflated or underinflated are both detrimental to a car’s performance and to the gas mileage. Inspecting tires as well as hoses for wear is also advisable.

It is important to keep good records of your car’s maintenance. You need to keep a record of the mileage when tires were replaced, so that you know how many miles you have traveled on a set of tires, and you need to keep a record of the mileage when your oil is changed so that you don’t put too many miles between oil changes. Good car maintenance can help to make a car serve you well for many years.
