Automobile Mainntenance Essentials Tacoma Lakewood Puyallup
The better that you maintain your car, the longer you will hopefully be able to keep it. Proper maintenance will also help keep you and everyone around you safe on the road. It creates peace of mind and that is very important especially when vehicular ownership requires an immense amount of responsibility. We all know that regular oil changes, windshield wiper fill-ups, and tire changes are necessities but here are five things that you might not have considered and your vehicle might be waiting for you to look after them. The right tools and the right knowledge certainly help with maintenance essentials, so you might want to call 253-627-0252 for the best care for your vehicle.
Especially if you are not a car aficionado, you probably did not consider the length which these vehicular components can last.
Your timing belt: All vehicles have a timing belt or a timing chain. A timing chain probably doesn’t need to be replaced as it tends to last the length of your automobile’s engine. The timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 to100,000 miles. If your timing belt breaks, your vehicle will no longer function correctly and it can also cause other components of your vehicle to be damaged. If it’s been a while since yours has been changed, ask your mechanic about it.
Battery: Your vehicle’s battery is another component which needs to be replaced periodically. How often you replace the battery can depend on many things including the quality of the battery you purchase. If your battery isn’t functioning correctly, it could mean that you won’t be able to reach your destination when you need to. You also do not want to take a chance being stranded somewhere. Your mechanic can also test the battery to see if it is in good condition or not.
Brake fluid: Your brakes are vital when it comes to stopping your vehicle. They use brake fluid. After a long period of time moisture can get into the fluid and this can cause it to not be as effective as it should be. Test strips are available to test your fluid. It is recommended that it be changed every three to five years but there is no harm in testing it more frequently.
Transmission fluid: Your transmission is very important in the proper functioning of your vehicle. All automobiles have transmission fluid and it should be changed approximately every 50,000 miles. There are different kinds of transmission fluid and it is vital that the correct kind be used so as not to experience other problems with the vehicle. More information should be available in your owner’s manual.
Coolant: This is another fluid that is important to your vehicle’s proper functioning. Chances are you might top this up from time to time but occasionally (one recommendation is between 100,000 to 150,000 miles or every five years) it should be completely changed to make sure that your engine’s cooling system is running as smoothly as possible.
The list above is only a brief listing of your vehicle’s needs which might not have been dealt with a while. You should consult a professional about all your vehicle care needs. He or she will be able to tell you what they check at each regular maintenance visit. This will allow you to have a better idea of what you should be keeping in mind to ask them to do and what they already do for your vehicle.
