Proper Maintenance can Prevent Engine Repairs
Your engine needs more than just a regular oil change. Its performance and longevity also depend on having other fluids checked, things like the coolant, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid. Depending on your car’s mileage, these systems may need to be topped off or even drained and refilled.
There are other regular maintenance activities that need to be performed as well. The air filter needs to be checked and replaced regularly, and your vehicle’s battery should be checked every 20,000 miles. Every 40,000 miles or so, you should have your spark plugs and spark plug wires replaced, and have your ignition system checked. Around 60,000 miles, you should have your engine’s timing belt checked and adjusted or replaced if necessary.
These are just some of the maintenance activities that if done on schedule can prevent engine repairs. There are other issues, beyond engine care, that you need to make sure are kept on schedule – important things like brake maintenance, tires, exterior lights, hoses, suspension components, and your HVAC system.
