What You Need To Know

  1. Know the Manual: When figuring out when to get a service, Manchester drivers will find plenty of general recommendations, but every vehicle is different---especially an Audi. You'll need to consult your owner's manual for the facts. 
  2. Inspect the Vehicle: Learn how to do basic things like detect leaks and under-inflated tires, so you can get a good sense for when to take your vehicle in. 
  3. Check Your Tires: Under- and over-inflated tires are vulnerable to flats and blowouts. Invest in a tire pressure gauge and get into the habit of regularly checking your tire pressure.
  4. Check the Engine Oil Level: No oil results in catastrophic engine failure. Low oil results in greater wear and tear to your engine block's vital components. Learning to keep tabs on oil levels will help you to stay topped off, so you can get the most out of your car for years to come.
  5. Check the Engine Coolant: Again, you'll want to utilize your owner's manual to determine where the coolant reservoir is located. Then simply make sure the coolant levels are where they need to be.
  6. Inspect the Engine Air Filter: An engine air filter helps ensure that your engine is combusting clean oxygen. The cleaner the air, the more potent the oxygen is combusted, which means that your car is running a tight ship and getting better fuel economy. 
  7. Use the Right Fuel: Make sure you know your car's "octane level" and that you're choosing the right type of fuel at the pump. Using the wrong fuel can result in surprisingly serious damage. 
  8. Inspect Light Bulbs: Keep tabs on your light bulbs---you don't want to end on the highway at night with a faulty headlight. 
  9. Inspect the Windshield Wipers: In most cases, your windshield wipers are struggling because you've run out of fluid. Consult your owner's manual to learn where your windshield wiper fluid tank is, so you can top it off regularly. 
  10. Keep Track of Maintenance: Even more important than following our automotive maintenance tips, the single most effective way to maximize the lifespan, value, and performance of your vehicle is to follow your automotive maintenance schedule, as detailed in your owner's manual.
