Every year, medical experts would advise you to have your regular check-ups to maintain your overall health. This also applies to your car (if you have one, of course.) After all, no car owner would want to drive around a defective vehicle that can also potentially compromise your safety.
Just because it’s “normally” running does not mean there’s an excuse not to have your car undergo regular maintenance. Not even for lack of time and knowledge about how your car works and what it needs. Unfortunately, many car owners take vehicle maintenance services for granted – they would realize its importance when their beloved car finally breaks down.
Regardless of the type of vehicle you own, all vehicles must undergo regular car maintenance at Highline Car Care to ensure its sound “health.” With that said, you should have the following checked in your car:
- Car fluids
These include engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, windshield washer fluid, brake and clutch fluid, power steering fluid, and many more depending on the type of vehicle.
It’s essential to ensure that all of your car tires have the correct pressure which will help increase its life and save on fuel as well. A wheel alignment may also be necessary when your car tires seemed unbalanced while running.
Your car wiper blades may have to be replaced at least once a year especially when you’re living in an area with a harsh climate.
- Air filter
Our lungs should be healthy to ensure proper breathing. This also applies to your car’s air filter. Like our lungs, air filters should also be regularly cleaned to help enhance your vehicle’s overall performance. Otherwise, it will be clogged with dust and dirt which can affect your car’s road performance.
Oftentimes, you will only know if there’s something wrong with your battery if it already conks out. That is why it’s important to regularly check your battery for any signs of corrosion and ensure there’s enough fluid in it. If you don’t use your car often, make sure to run your car once in a while to prevent battery drain.
- Engine oil
It’s also important to have your engine oil replaced regularly. Sludgy engine oil can harm your car and can also affect its overall road performance.
- Car cleaning
Who doesn’t want to drive a squeaky-clean vehicle around? Everyone! Who wants to ride inside a smelly car, full of debris and dirt? No one! Make sure to have your car cleaned regularly. If your car could speak, it will thank you for this.
Aside from the above checklist, you should also check the other parts of your car for any hidden defects, such as:
- External lights
- Odd noises coming from your engine or internal car part
