This is the second post in my series of ‘tid-bits’ that will help you keep your auto in good running order:
Auto technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well -today and down the road- is routine maintenance. However, many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics. A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:
• 38 percent of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
• 54 percent had low tire pressure.
• 28 percent had inadequate cooling protection.
• 19 percent needed new belts.
• 16 percent had dirty air filters.
• 10 percent had low or contaminated brake fluid.
For your convenience, I highly recommend reading the Car Care Council’s easy to read Service Interval Schedule . This schedule is an easy to read and it will help you keep track of regular maintenance. Most of the checks and services described can be done at little or no cost. Best of all, they are quick and easy to do.
I certainly hope that my posted “tid-bits” will help you keep your auto in good running order and help minimize your overall driving expenses. Questions? Don’t hesitate to ask! And, we LOVE feedback…please don’t hesitate to let us know how we are doing.
