Many people depend on a car for daily needs, but a poorly maintained engine can become expensive at the mechanic. Simple checks and a maintenance schedule will not only extend the life of your car, but will keep the engine running smoothly and save you money.
Getting in a weekly routine will make your maintenance seem like the norm. Weekly checks don't take long, but they provide peace of mind that your car stays away from the mechanic's garage.
A Maintenance Schedule
Some checks need not be completed weekly, but they will still need to be checked periodically to keep a vehicle in good order. These include:
Each make and model of vehicle will differ, and referring to the manufacturer's manual or a qualified mechanic will help to identify the location for each check.
Knowing When You Need a Mechanic
Not all defects will be easily identified when the vehicle is stationary. With this in mind, be aware when driving and note anything that seems a little different so you can investigate further on your next check up. If you discover a fault that you cannot remedy, seek the advice of a mechanic and get the car checked to help keep you safe on the road.Share

Hey! My name is Damian and this blog contains some very important information about caring for and protecting your auto. I am not an automotive expert but I do have some experiences which have taught me some important lessons. When I bought a new car a couple of years ago, I was so happy. However, that happiness turned to anger when someone broke into my car. They didn't manage to drive it away but I was super mad. My friend who works in an auto shop recommended that I buy some accessories to improve the security of my car. He also gave me some great tips on how I could keep my car secure.
