10 Maintenance Tips Every Car Owner Should Know How to Do

  1. Track Your Maintenance: Keeping a log of all your routine and as-needed maintenance will help you know when to get more service, or how to address other issues that may arise regarding your vehicle.
  2. Read Your Manual: Become familiar with your vehicle’s owner’s manual. This priceless resource should serve as your primary reference on any issue you may be suspicious of.
  3. Fuel-up Properly: Reference your owner’s manual or dealership to ensure you are fueling your car with the proper octane-level gasoline.
  4. Regularly Inspect Your Vehicle: Every so often, do a once-over of your vehicle interior and exterior. With the knowledge of your owner’s manual, you should be able to pinpoint potential problem areas.
  5. Check the Engine Air Filter: Reference your owner’s manual for your engine air filter location. Inspect and clean or replace it on a regular basis.
  6. Check the Engine Oil Level: Use your owner’s manual to locate the oil dipstick under your car’s hood. Check the oil level and color. If the level is low or the color dark, top it off or replace it, or visit our service center for an oil change.
  7. Check the Engine Coolant Level: Look on your coolant reservoir. You should see it says “full.” It the level is not to the full mark, you’ll want to add a premixed coolant or a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze until it reaches full. (While you’re under the hood, check your transmission fluid levels, too!)
  8. Inspect Tire Pressure: Check your tires inflation levels with a tire pressure gauge or at an air pump that has a PSI reader. Again, you owner’s manual will dictate proper PSI. Checking in extreme weather is even more important as cold can cause tires to deflate significantly.
  9. Inspect Tire Wear and Tear: Look at the wear and tear on your tires. Check to see if tires are wearing evenly by using a tire tread depth gauge or the classic penny test. If any one of your tires are significantly more worn than others, it’s time for a rotation or replacement.
  10. Check Your Windshield Wipers: When Gilbert experiences heavy rainfall, you need wipers that work properly. Check for streaks or smearing, both of which are signs of worn or incorrect wipers.
