5 Tips For Extending Your Car's Lifespan

If you are wondering how your friend’s old car runs like brand new, then here are 5 tips for you to follow to get the most from your vehicle and to save on repairs.

1. Oil changes

Irregular oil changes can cause some engine problems. It is recommended to change oil every 3000 to 5000 miles. But always check your owner’s manual to ensure your car’s oil change schedule.

2. Don’t ignore small problems

Over time, your vehicle will start to give you signs that something is getting worn out, for example, a noise when you turn on the AC and so on. Don’t ignore these small issues. They can lead to large and expensive repairs.

3. Air filter

The engine air filter should be replaced between 15,000 and 30,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. If you do not replace them when necessary your car’s gas mileage and performance can be reduced.

4. Keep your fluids topped up

Except for the oil, your vehicle also needs the transmission fluid , brake fluid , power steering fluid , and coolant to function correctly. Always keep them topped up to avoid some problems with your car.

5. Watch your tire pressure

Tire pressure is also important for your vehicle’s gas mileage and performance. Your tire pressure should be within 5 PSI of this measurement. You can find the recommended tire pressure on the label inside your driver’s side door.

If you follow this guide on most essential check-ups, your vehicle will last longer.
