Check Your Air Filter
Many car problems are due to clogged air filters or loose fittings. The air filter prevents dirt and particles from entering the engine. During combustion your engine needs air, and a clogged filter may impact performance.
Inspect Fluids and Tire Pressure Regularly
Tire pressure is something, which you shouldn't ignore or delay. Tires are one of the most important component of your car for safety, efficiency, and comfort. Getting in the habit checking the tires regularly will help you save time and money.
Check Your Battery.
Check your car battery. First check the cables and their connection to the terminals. You can check for leakage or any mineral build up around the cables and terminals. Clean the terminal with a battery cleaning brush if needed and you can always apply dielectric grease to help them stay corrosion free. Using a multimeter with the engine off, you can check if the battery is charged fully (about 12.4 to 12.7 volts). When the car is on you can carefully check the voltage. It should be around 13.7 to 14.7 volts.
Change Your Spark Plugs
If you notice that your engine is not working efficiently, then the reason could be the spark plugs. If not checked, they could wear out and be covered in a buildup. Your car manual should let you know when to replace them.
Get Your Tires Rotated and Balanced
This is the easiest trick in the book to prevent wearing of tires and make them last longer, and the trick is to get them rotated about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. All tires do not wear at the same amount. So by rotating the front and rear tires, you balance the wear and make them more long wearing. Clean your Windshields and Replace the Wipers
A dirty windshield can prove to be a lot of hassle when you can't see clearly. If they are not cleaned regularly they can cause visual impairments and can result in accidents at times.
It is very important for the driver to have a clear view of the road for safe driving. If you don't clean them, the dirt and particle can accumulate and scratch the windshield when you use the wipers.
You'll have pride of ownership when you keep a regular schedule of maintenance from a service center or by yourself. You can do a better job than some professional because you can take your time and not have to rush as you can do your inspections and repairs of your choosing. Best of all your improving the condition of your car one step at a time.
