Have Your Vehicle Last Longer

Although having your vehicle serviced by professionals is an important part of proper vehicle maintenance, it isn’t the only thing. In fact, what you do in between services is just as important as the official services themselves. Before your next visit, make sure you perform these crucial maintenance tasks!

Check Your Oil

Motor oil plays an important role in the performance of your engine and it’s important that you always understand its current condition. How can you do it? By using the dipstick found in your vehicle. You want to pay attention to the oil quality and level. After cleaning the dipstick, insert it into the engine and remove it. Motor oil has a clear, amber color to it. If it looks dark, dirty, and gritty, the oil needs to be changed. Along with that, the oil level should be in between “MAX” and “MIN” (indicators may be different in your vehicle). If the level is at or below “MIN,” you need to add more oil into your vehicle. Just make sure you use the right oil for your vehicle!

Inspect Your Tires

Quality tires allow you to maintain proper traction and gain control of your vehicle. As the tires start to wear, they lose their tread and as a result, you lose a little control. When checking the tread of your tires, use the penny test! Insert a penny head first into the tread of your tires. If you see the top of the head of our 16th president, you will need to replace the tire, as the tread has worn out past the recommended level.
