It seems that there are some drivers that don't know how to maintain a car in good condition. Plus, they may not have the money in their budget to pay out for seemingly unnecessary items. Keeping up with preventative vehicle maintenance is an expense, but the potential costs of damage that can happen in your vehicle’s engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. You don’t save money by extending the time intervals between the recommended vehicle maintenance services.

Preventative vehicle maintenance makes sure your car stays in good health! A multi-point inspection is a good way to find out if there are any issues with your car that need to be taken care of.

Here are the most common items included in a car inspection:

  • Oil and filter
  • Tires--rotation, alignment, balancing, air pressure (including the spare and jack)
  • Car battery
  • Fluids--antifreeze/coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer reservoir
  • Air filter
  • Horn
  • Windshield wipers
  • Lights (exterior and interior)
  • Air conditioner and heater
If you’re a driver that does not know how to maintain a car in good condition, you may find yourself stranded looking for repair. Be sure to follow vehicle maintenance schedule on a regular basis.

The oil change is one of the most essential, cost-effective ways to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. Even with the oil light on the dashboard, many auto shops see vehicles with damaged or dirty engines because their owners didn’t know what oil to use or waited too long between oil changes. Engine damage caused by dirty or low oil is far more costly than regular maintenance.

Here are five basic things to know about oil changes:
