What is the Recommended Car Maintenance Schedule for My Vehicle?



Buying a car is an investment, and it's important to take care of your investment. One way to ensure that your vehicle continues to run properly for years to come is to follow the recommended car maintenance schedule for service. Your vehicle's manual will provide the optimal time that you need services such as oil changes, tire rotations, and more, but we've also have some general service schedules to follow to help you keep your vehicle on the roads of Nashua longer.

Oil

Your vehicle's oil helps to lubricate the intricacies that make up your engine, and if you run out of oil, it can cause severe and expensive damage to areas under the hood. In general, your vehicle should have its oil changed every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. You can opt to do this oil change yourself or bring it to a professional technician to do it for you.

Battery

Although your battery doesn't require any maintenance, you should at least know where it's located and how to replace it when the day comes. In addition, simply keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't show any signs of wear and tear (like leaking) or damage. If you notice anything strange about your battery, it's safer to just replace it than to cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Windshield Wipers

Your windshield wipers are important for the safety of you and your passengers, so be sure to replace these whenever they start to become streaky or miss cleaning the water on your windshield. Depending on where you live, you may want to purchase some snow-centric windshield wipers to help you keep clear visibility when the Stratham weather turns bad.

Air Filters

Air needs to move through your engine in order for these pieces to run properly on the roads of Newburyport. Be sure to check and replace your vehicle's engine air filter, oil filter, and cabin air filter to ensure particles aren't building up and causing backup that could be harmful to your vehicle's parts. Again, this is something you can tackle by yourself or use the help of a professional.

Tires

Finally, your vehicle's tires are also something that you should inspect regularly. Look for signs of damage or general wear and tear. If you don't feel any treads on your tires any more, it's time to replace them. Also, check the tire pressure regularly to ensure your tires are full enough to handle the roads.
