When you get a car, new or used, it is important to get into the habit of bringing it in for regular maintenance. Doing so will keep your car in the best condition possible for a longer amount of time. Sure, it might cost you some money but practicing good car maintenance will help ensure that you are never stuck on the side of the road waiting for help. To help minimize auto shop maintenance costs, here are some tips on what you can do at home to help maintain your car.

It is easy to check your oil and change it at the recommended intervals. Doing so will help keep your engine running well. You can also change the filter as needed or recommended. These tasks are quick and easy and make a huge difference when it comes to maintaining your car. 

Keep your car clean! This might sound like a basic chore but keeping your car clean, especially underneath your vehicle and all around the wheels, will help knock off anything that has gotten stuck to the axle, back of the tires, and on other parts of the undercarriage. Keeping your car clean leads to better car health and longevity. 

You can also apply lubricants on parts of your car’s engine. By lubricating every required part of your car’s engine, you will essentially be providing the proper amount of grease to keep the parts moving smoothly. Parts that are low on grease tend to seize up or rub against each other until they are too worn out to function properly.

These three tips are simple practices that you can do right in your garage to help maintain your car. For more tips on maintaining your car at home, stay tuned on our monthly blog.
