A well maintained vehicle speaks volumes about you as an owner.
More importantly, it will not desert you when you need it most.
Read on for tips on specifics.
Engine Oil: To prevent engine deterioration,
it is imperative that the engine maintains the amount of oil it
is programmed to receive. Negligence in this aspect will lead
to a deteriorating engine performance, resulting in falling mileage.
Fuses: Cars are made with an integrated circuitry
system that use fuses. Knowledge of the system would help when
you are stranded due to a blown fuse. Be sure you have spares.
Lights: It is important for the lights to be
properly aimed, for your own and for the oncoming vehicle's safety.
Tire Pressure: The required amount of air pressure
needs to be strictly maintained if your car is to get the best
mileage and longest wear. Cold weather lowers tire pressure.
Coolant: Take care to ensure that it is regularly
changed and maintained at the proper level.
