Your car is a long term investment and it needs proper care in order to extend its working life.
Proper care of your car means less problems on the road, which automatically translates into lower maintenance and repair costs. Today we discuss some simple ways by which you can extend the working life of your vehicle.
1. Change the filters
One of the most basic things you can do to maintain the performance levels of your car is to regularly change the filters, including the oil and air filters. While most people often take care of replacing the oil filter, the air filter is ignored more often than not. A clean air filter enables better engine performance and adds to its overall longevity.
2. Maintain the Pressure
Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is one of the relatively inexpensive aspects of taking care of your car. Correct tyre pressure not only yields benefits like good fuel economy and better engine performance, but it also adds to the safety of the vehicle. While requiring very little attention, tyre pressure is an important aspect that contributes to the overall performance of any vehicle.
3. Intelligent Driving
Good driving habits will give you many benefits. In addition to better fuel consumption, it greatly increases the engine life. When you drive properly, you remove unnecessary strain from the engine and thus make it run smoother and better. And, of course ,it is always safer to drive intelligently.
4. Be Punctual
A simple yet important way to take care of your car is to stick to the maintenance schedule. Manufacturers provide owners with the owners’ manual that contains the maintenance schedule for their vehicle. If your car no longer has a service manual Cooper Automotive will provide you with one free of charge when you have your vehicle serviced with us. It’s as they say, a stitch in time saves nine!
