Car Mechanic Going Over Checklist

Theservice department at Garavel CJDR is ready and able to help our Stamford customers to keep up with their automotive maintenance schedule. But did you know that there are things you can and should be doing in the meantime to keep your car running at peak performance? We’ve put together the list of automotive maintenance tips below.

10 Important Automotive Maintenance Tips

It doesn’t take much to keep your car running at its best. Just about anyone can do the things listed below. Incorporate these tasks into your automotive maintenance schedule:

  1. Get familiar with the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual will tell you specifics about the other items on this list (proper tire pressure, correct grade of gas, etc.)
  2. Inspect the vehicle for leaks. Catch leaks worry so they don’t get worse.
  3. Check the tires for air pressure and tread. Keeping tires properly inflated will help them to last longer. Driving on tires with little tread is dangerous. This should be one of the most frequently done items in your automotive maintenance schedule.
  4. Check the engine oil. Operating an engine when the oil is low can cause serious damage.
  5. Check antifreeze or coolant. This will keep your car from overheating and help you to detect leaks.
  6. Change the engine air filter on a regular basis. This will help your engine to run more efficiently.
  7. Use the correct grade of gas. Check the owner’s manual for the correct grade. Use premium gas only when premium required and only use premium when premium is required.
  8. Check the headlights, taillights, and signal lights. This will help you stay safe on our Greenwich roads and to avoid tickets.
  9. Replace the windshield wiper blades when needed. Make sure to check them regularly.
  10. Keep a record of all maintenance. A detailed maintenance record is good for the vehicle’s resale and trade-in value.
