Top 5 things to make your car last!

1. Service your car per factory recommendations: This may seem natural, but letting the time slip and not getting your oil changed will take miles off the life of the engine and other parts. There is some leeway between when you should first get it changed and when you are overdue, so find out when it needs to be done and make sure you stay within specs.

2. Check your fluid and tire pressure levels: This is a no-brainer that only takes a few minutes. Your oil is the most important thing to check. Even in newer cars, you may not get a light until it is very low. In the Winter time, washer fluid is vital to seeing out your windshield in a storm. Don’t find yourself in the middle of it only to find out you don’t have washer fluid. Radiator, brake fluid, transmission fluid should also be checked on a regular basis. And lastly, under inflated tires wear out quickly.

3. Go slow on startup: Revving your engine as soon as you start it up doesn’t warm up the engine fast in the way you would like it. What happens is you have pistons rubbing against raw metal without proper lubricant. You need to give the oil a chance to circulate. On cold days, this takes even longer than normal. So, go slow and protect your engine from damage. You need to let the oil circulate for at least 30 seconds, and even longer if the car has sat for more than a day. Be kind to your engine and it will last a lot longer.

4. When something doesn’t sound right, don’t turn up the radio: Don’t ignore the odd noise or handling characteristics. It’s your car’s way of telling you something isn’t right. Turn your radio down, listen for the engine not running right, your brakes telling you they need to be replaced or any weird sound coming from your engine compartment that may not be normal. When it happens, bring the car in to a mechanic and have it looked at. A small auto repair bill now will save you a large bill down the road.

5. Drive smoothly! If you accelerate smoothly and brake smoothly, your car will last a lot longer. Take corners at a moderate speed to save your suspension. Don’t slam your foot on the gas and your suspension, rear end tires will all thank you. Try to be smooth in your gear shifting to save your transmission. All of these techniques and an attitude of smoothness combined will add miles to the life of car parts and your overall vehicle.

By doing preventive maintenance and taking it easy on your car, it will not only save you money, but keep your car healthy for a long time.
