Every car owner knows that if you don't take care of your car it will not serve you well. Depending on how much you use the car, you can come up with small regular maintenance strategies. This will mean that any minor damages can be fixed before they become major problems.
Fixing minor damages will save you money because they are cheaper than when you have to fix bigger damages. For example, fixing a small brake pad issue can save you from having to pay many fines for knocking down an electric pole just because the brakes failed.
Checking your car regularly will help you capture minor factors that are out of the ordinary. Things such as pressure of the tires can save you a great deal of money since under-inflated tires can cause worn out tires.
Low tire pressure can also affect the car's efficiency and therefore require you to use more gas while covering less mileage.
Changing Oil and Oil Filters
This will help you notice if there may be an issue with the engine. When oil is not changed or the oil filters are worn out or torn, small particles in the oil may cause the movable parts in the engine to wear out.
Oil allows movable parts to move smoothly.
Adhere to Manufacturer's Maintenance Schedule
These routine maintenance inspections can identify issues early, for example noticing worn out parts and replacing them.
Worn out parts reduce the vehicle's efficiency therefore requiring you to spend more money.
Washing your car routinely
Washing your car will not only make your car look amazing, but will also help prevent the paint from fading and therefore requiring you to repaint the car.
Checking the battery
In any case that the battery is leaking, you will be able to identify it early enough and save you the hassle of paying for a tow truck just because the car broke down somewhere.
Replace the air filter
The air filter can get dirty especially if you are a long distance diver or live in the countryside.
