Default Car maintenance basics

It's really not that difficult to keep your car in good shape. Here are the basics:

- Read your car owner's manual, it has all the information on car maintenance as well as safety precautions.

- Keep all the fluids (e.g. engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant, etc.) clean and topped up.

- Follow your maintenance schedule, there is a number of things that need to be regularly serviced or replaced at certain intervals (e.g. brakes, air filter, timing belt, spark plugs, etc.)

- Check tire pressure regularly.

- Change you windshield wipers if they don't clean properly.

- Wash and wax your vehicle once in a while to keep the car finish shiny and protected from corrosion.

- Deal with any problems as soon as they arise, before they become more serious and require expensive repairs.

- Use only original parts.

- At least once a year have your car check out in a garage.
