Top Ten Tips for Car Repair

By Tyger Lucas

Lots of our consumers have asked us what they can do to lengthen the life of their vehicles.

To help keep your car running at the peak performance our specialists have assembled a catalogue of the top 10 maintenance and repair items that will extend the life of your car.

Change the Oil

Changing your oil at the factory endorsed interval keeps the engine free of sludge and combustion elements that may harm your vehicle.

Perform Tire Maintenance Regular tire rotation and correct inflation will not only lengthen the life of the tires, but also increase fuel mileage.

Change the Air Filter for the Engine and the Cabin If your air filtering device gets too grimy, your engine will not be in a position to pull enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (i.e. Too much gas and not enough air). When this occurs gas mileage suffers.

Replace the Spark Plugs Replacing the spark plugs in your engine can prevent misfires and poor performance as well as seriously reduce emissions and improve gas mileage.

Flush the Cooling System Flushing the cooling system prolongs the life of the radiator, engine and heater by washing away corrosive elements like dirt and rust particles that may block up the cooling system and cause issues in summer and winter. This may be done every two years.

Maintain the Brakes If you neglect your brake pads and shoes, you could cause damage to other, more expensive brake parts like rotors, drums and calipers.

Perform a Fuel Injection Service Performing a fuel injection service not only prolongs the survival expectancy of the injectors, but can increase fuel mileage with benefits that massively outweigh the price of the service.

Change the Transmission Fluid Changing your transmission liquid at regular intervals can extend the life of the transmission by 50%. If you perform this service on a constant basis likelihood is that you may never experience a major transmission failure.

Replace the Timing Belt Replacing the timing belt, before it breaks can help to save you masses of greenbacks. Most manufacturers advocate replacement between 60,000 and 105,000 miles dependent on brand and model. If the belt fails, the engine will immediately shut down leaving you marooned.

Perform a Seasonal Complete Car Inspection Having your vehicle checked seasonally can prolong the life of many major elements of your auto by diagnosing mend issues before they become major Problems, and do not assume that getting your oil changed at a "quick lube" has a inclusive inspection. Have a qualfied shop perform the inspection to insure that nothing is missed.
