A Resolution You Should Keep: Be Car Care Aware


Resolution 2014- Be Car Care Aware

Why not resolve to be car care aware in the coming year? By spending a little time now on preventive maintenance, drivers can save a lot of headaches in the long run and make for a great year on the road, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

“Regular auto care shouldn’t be one of those New Year’s resolutions that goes by the wayside,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Preventative vehicle maintenance pays off all year, every year.”

To be car care aware, the council recommends incorporating the following service interval schedule items as part of your New Year’s resolution:

·Perform monthly checks of tire pressure and the condition of tires, lights and windshield washer fluid. The vehicle should also be cleaned monthly.

·Every three months or per the owner’s manual, check the engine oil and filter, check the levels of other fluids including automatic transmission, power steering and brake, and check the battery and cables, belts and hoses. The exhaust and fuel filter should also be checked at this interval.

·Every six months or 6,000 miles, the chassis lubrication should be checked and windshield wipers should be replaced.

·Every 12 months or 12,000 miles, the brakes, spark plugs, coolant and steering and suspension should be checked.

Drivers should also consult their owner’s manual for specific recommendations by the carmaker.
