How to Maintain Proper Vehicle Care

Your new car is a huge investment, one that will serve your Granger commute well for years, provided you treat it right. Fortunately, proper vehicle care doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. You just need to perform some basic maintenance tasks, most of which you can do yourself from home. Take a look at Jordan Ford’s best care care tips, below!

Check Your Fluids

The fluids in your vehicle provide cooling and lubrication – essential if you want the moving parts to keep moving as they should:

  • Oil: Change the oil and filter according to your maintenance schedule to remove debris and ensure maximum engine lubrication.
  • Coolant: Coolant should be changed and flushed once a year to make sure it can keep your engine cool.
  • Transmission Fluid: Like your oil, your transmission and differential fluids help to lubricate essential moving parts that keep your vehicle moving forward.
  • Brake Fluid: Modern brake systems require special fluid. If your fluid is low or dirty, the braking system can’t do its job, and your brakes could fail.

Your fluids should be checked regularly, and any leaks or issues should be dealt with immediately.

Inspect Essential Components

In addition to the moving parts of your engine, your vehicle has other essential parts that should be inspected and replaced when they begin to show signs of wear. These parts include:

  • Brake Pads
  • Windshield Wipers
  • Engine Belts
  • Air, Water, and Brake Lines
  • Air Filters
  • Tires
Adding coolant to a car

Even if your tires are in excellent shape, South Bend area seasonal temperature shifts can have an impact on your fuel-efficiency and how well the vehicle handles.

Keep it Clean

Cleaning your vehicle inside and out does more than make it look good; it also helps to prevent excessive wear to paint, carpet, and rubber components. This is particularly true if you live where road salt is used during the winter, or your car is exposed to environmental pollutants. To get even more out of your cleaning job, park your vehicle in a covered parking area, such as a garage when not in use.
