Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

People are always on the go – errands, school, work, and activities – there’s always some place to be. There are probably days you feel like you live in your vehicle. Due to the constant on-the-go, your car can take a real beating. Whether you drive a new RAM truck or a used SUV, it’s important to properly maintain your car to make sure it’s in it for the long haul.

Checking Car With Laptop

Why Maintenance is Important

  • We know you remember to keep your gas tank full and most likely, your tires inflated. However, do you check all the fluids under the hood to make sure they are full? Do you not only inflate your tires, but make sure they are regularly rotated? Car maintenance doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Visit our Glen Mills car service center to make sure your vehicle is ready for the road. After all, having a properly maintained vehicle doesn’t just prolong its life, but ensures your safety on the road.
Oil Change

Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

  • Tires: Tires need to be regularly rotated, but you also want to ensure they keep an adequate tread to make sure your vehicle can always stop on a dime, if need be. Our car parts department near Downingtown, PA can help if you need a replacement.
  • Engine oil: Engine oil should be changed approximately every 3,000 miles. You can use the dipstick to check your oil level at any time to make sure your engine has enough.
  • Brakes: It’s imperative that you know your brakes are in good working order to make sure you are safe on the road. If your vehicle makes a whiny noise or seems to shake or struggle when stopping, it’s time to get your brakes inspected.
  • Fluids: Engine oil isn’t the only fluid to monitor under the hood. You need to keep an eye on the brake fluid, antifreeze, transmission fluid, and windshield wiper fluid to keep your vehicle in good working order.
