Regularly Scheduled Car Check Ups


Yearly Check-Ups that Are Crucial to the Maintenance of Your Car 

Car repairs encompass one of the major unexpected and costliest expenses that a person can ever experience. The average car repair bill with basic functionality problems can amount to more than $1,500 in most cases. In other circumstances, spending more than this amount is possible when the car is new or has specific engine problems. In order to avoid maintenance repairs or fixes and thereby spending possibly thousands of dollars less in car maintenance bills, experts have always recommended doing yearly check-ups.   They are vital to the overall maintenance of the car at any given time, especially when the car has not been checked or properly maintained in a period of over 12 months. However, one particular question that many car owners ask themselves is what are the specific yearly check-ups that must be done to properly avoid car repairs?  The following list outlines the best and most important check-ups for your car.

Oil Changes 

Oil changes are by far the most important factor to keep into consideration when maintaining any car in proper form. This is especially true when oil changes altogether encompass an important lubricant-based ability for the engine and its rotators to make the car run and accelerate properly. Without sufficient oil present in the engine’s rotators and parts, the engine will continuously overwork itself anytime the car is heavily accelerated.  This causes the engine to possibly break down or suffer serious consequences if no oil is lubricating these essential parts. It is highly recommended for all car owners to do an oil change to their cars for every 3,000 miles run.  However, there are multiple variations that deter this threshold.  Certain car brands, powerful engines or certain car models can last over a 10,000 mile run or one year, whichever comes first. For proper reassurance, it is always best to check your owner’s manual.   Car manuals give the best assistance and guidelines toward when to change and how often you have to change your oil. Some car models even have an oil change monitor that properly measures the presence of sufficient oil in the engine and certain internal parts.  The oil change monitor will give an alert when it is time to change your car oil.

Tire Rotation 

Tires by themselves are the main components of car movement. The weight placed on the front tires is in the majority of cases heavier than the weight placed in the rear tires. This positioning causes a disproportional placement of weight in the front tires…read more.
