3 Tips To Save On Car Maintenance

A car has its own wear-and-tear. Depending on how it is cared for, some wear down faster than the others. If you just drive without taking extra care so that your car will live a little more longer, it will give up sooner than later. It may take a bulk of money to buy a car cash but if you did your part to give it the proper maintenance, and it still works for the so many years, the cost per year would be cheaper. If you are reckless, though, you might not even be able to sell your car at tenth the original price. Worse, it may just end up in the junk yard.

Make sure all your fluid levels are right

There are several fluids in a car and checking it regularly is one of the simplest yet effective ways to make sure your car is in good health. There is the fluid level of oil, brake transmission, wiper, antifreeze, and power steering. Make sure they are all in the right levels to avoid unnecessary repairs. Still, an ounce of prevention to avoid getting those levels down too low is a lot better than a pound of repairs. You spend money in the repairs and you lose time not being able to use your car, because it is being repaired.

Have the right amount of air

The wheels are the most used part of the car. They pass by different kinds of road, smooth or rough, dusty, muddy, stony, watery, rocky, and possibly over branches, nails and other debris, especially if what you drive is an SUV. If you put less air than it should have, you will have reduced fuel mileage and the life of your tires will be significantly reduced also. It will cause problems in the handling and maneuvering which may cause accidents. Putting more air, on the other hand, will wear down the treads of your tires faster, again, limiting the life of your tires. It will also be easier to tear when it encounters road debris or a pothole. Make sure that your spare tire is also aired enough and give it a check once in a while especially if you haven’t used it for a while since all tires naturally lose air like a pound or two a month.

Keep Your Tires Inflated

Regularly change your oil

Oil is what makes engines run smoothly. Without it, engines will just crank up or not run at all. Different engines have different schedules for changing oil. You have to ask your maintenance mechanic or check the car manual. With the right kind of oil, engine life is extended and carbon emission is reduced. Dirty oil only gives you reduced life for your car and more headache for your added repair expenses.


A car can prolong its life, lessen and prevent the unnecessary cost if it is given the right maintenance, when it is needed. It has a schedule that has to be met, or suffer the consequences later. With a maintained car, you maximize the use and give it as much life as it can hold on to. Hence, do not neglect your car’s maintenance schedule.
