Car Care Tips

Vehicle maintenance is essential for keeping your car on the road longer and ensures its performance doesn’t suffer. Taking care of your car will make a big difference between owning a great running car for a long time, or having to kick your old one to the curb looking beat up and falling apart. For many people who don’t work on cars daily, checking under the hood or taking your vehicle in for regular maintenance can seem daunting and outright terrifying. We are here to make your mind at ease when it comes to caring for your car with these helpful tips.

The first tip is to become familiar with the owner’s manual, or at the very least check to make sure you have one. Your owner’s manual will have information about the type of oil to use for oil changes, specs on the engine and performance, and other helpful information for keeping your car on the road longer. If you don’t have a manual, you can usually find them online or ask your local automotive repair shop for information about recommended oil or maintenance guidelines. Standard maintenance can vary with different car models, especially newer models. The owner’s manual will have information that you’ll need when it’s time for routine maintenance.

Next, and one of the most important car care tips is bringing your vehicle in for routine services. An oil change is a necessary service to keep your engine running smoothly. If you do not change the oil regularly, you will experience major car issues and the engine could stop running. It’s a good idea to also rotate your tires and check the tire pressure. Many automotive shops will do this when you change the oil. Checking the fluid, such as oil, brake, engine coolant and power steering, should be done once a month. Other routine services that aren’t needed as frequently can include power flush cooling system, air conditioning service, replacing belts and filters, or an engine tune-up.

Keeping your vehicle clean is also important. This will keep your car looking newer for longer. Cleaning your car can be fun and something you can do with your kids. Also, engine cleaning will help to avoid the build up of dirt and debris that can cause performance issues. Exterior engine cleaning should be done only when the engine is cold and should be done with extreme care. Never use a pressure washer to clean the engine or any part of your car.

Austin’s Automotive Specialists in Dripping Springs can handle your car care maintenance from routine services to complete automotive repair. Call or schedule an appointment online to have one of our ASE certified technicians help you keep your car on the road longer.
