Car Care Habits

  • Set tire pressures based on the manufacturer’s recommendation. This is usually found on the door placard on the driver’s doorjamb.
  • Change engine oil regularly. Modern engines do not tolerate dirty oil very well. They have small passages and intricate systems that rely on oil that is clean and full.
  • Have your battery serviced if the connections are corroded. Today’s modern vehicles have massive electrical systems that rely heavily on the battery and good, clean connections.
  • Change other fluids when recommended (oil is cheaper than a repair)
  • Clean fuel system and injectors every 30k miles for better fuel economy, quicker starts in winter, and more power.
  • Fixing items as they wear out is cheaper than ignoring it until things snowball into a large repair.
