With diligent car care, people can save money by keeping their vehicles on the road long after the car has been paid off.
Hastings & Hastings advises that regular oil changes are an essential element of proper car maintenance. The engine is the heart of the car, and the oil is its lifeblood. Oil lubricates the engine and protects it from damaging itself and overheating. Car owners should check their owner’s manual to learn how often they should change the oil in their car. Some cars require oil changes every 3,000 miles, while others can go up to 10,000 miles before require and oil change. In part, the frequency between oil changes will depend on an individual’s driving habits.
Just as oil is essential to the function of a car, so too is fresh, clean air. For this reason, it is essential to clean and change air filters on a regular basis. The standard recommended time frame for changing air filters is 12 months or 12,000 miles. However, owners should always consult their owner’s manual. A dirty air filter will be blocked up by dirt and debris, inhibiting the free flow of air. This can lead to a number of severe complications. When in doubt, owners should bring their car into a trusted mechanic to have their air filters checked.
“Cars are very complicated machines. While changing the oil and the air filters regularly is crucial, that is just the start. One of the best things you can do is form a close relationship with a trusted mechanic. They can be your guide when it comes to car care. I am very close with my mechanic and I have been driving the same car for almost 10 years now,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
