3 Auto Maintenance Tips to Extend the Life of Your Vehicle, Newark, Ohio

When you buy a vehicle, you're making an investment, so it's important that you treat it as such. Taking the right steps throughout the span of your ownership can help you extend the life of your vehicle as well as save you money. Here are three auto maintenance tips to help you get the most out of your investment.

How to Maintain Your Vehicle

1. Schedule Consistent Oil Changes

Oil provides the necessary lubricant to your engine's moving parts. Without it, friction occurs during movement and results in damaged parts. In many instances, you can avoid repairs and motor replacements while extending the life of your vehicle by following your manufacturers recommended oil change schedule.

2. Inspect Brakes & Tires Regularly

Auto MaintenanceThe brakes and tires are heavily used parts on a car, truck, or SUV, and when they're damaged, it can cause strain on connected pieces of equipment. Over time, this will affect the rotors and axles, which can negatively impact your vehicle's performance. Regular inspections will help identify problems early and before extensive damage can occur.

3. Don't Put Off Repairs

 When a sensor goes off or you notice something out of the ordinary in the daily operations of your vehicle, visit the auto maintenance shop. Even if you hear an odd noise only once, it's better to have a professional verify that everything is sound than risking a serious malfunction down the road.
