It’s easy to forget an oil change here and there, but you shouldn’t make a habit of neglecting routine car maintenance. Taking care of your car properly ensures it will run smoother and be a more dependable means of transportation longer. This is especially important if you require your vehicle to and from work each day. The more you drive, the more frequently you need to have a professional auto specialist perform routine car maintenance. Here are a few of the most vital car maintenance tasks you need and when to schedule them.
1. After 3,000 – 7,000 Miles
Most vehicles need an oil change every 3,000 miles. This can vary depending on the type of car you own and the oil used. Sometimes you won’t need an oil change until you hit 7,000 miles. Have your auto technician check your oil filter, transmission fluid level, coolant, power steering fluid, and windshield wipers at this time as well.
2. After 15,000 – 35,000 Miles
Another best practice is to replace the air filter in your car every 15,000 miles. Your auto technician should also check your battery every 20,000 miles.
3. After 35,000 – 50,000 Miles
Around the 35,000–40,000 mark, you’ll want to have your spark plugs and spark plug wires inspected and replaced as needed. It’s also a good idea to have a technician examine your ignition system when within this mileage range.
