Automotive Maintenance When You’re Driving Less
Many drivers find themselves driving less these days and in the future, for many car owners, these changes may be permanent. If you find your commuting time greatly reduced due to changes in your personal or professional life, knowing how to properly service your car can be challenging. However, with proper and attentive care you can keep your automobile in top shape whenever you need to drive to Dewey-Humboldt.
How Time Effects Service Needs
Keeping track of your mileage totals is the most common and efficient way to track maintenance needs, such as engine oil changes, when you regularly drive in Prescott City. However, if you find your commuting greatly reduced millage total may not be the most accurate tracking system. Time plays an important part as well for automotive fluids and components. Your engine oil should be changed yearly even if you haven’t hit the millage total, and other parts such as your brake pads should be checked regularly by a certified professional.
How Often To Run Your Engine
If you’re driving less to Aulden, you should still drive your car at least 20 minutes a week. These weekly drives help keep your car in good operating condition by keeping the battery charged, preventing tire damage due to a lack of use, and also prevent build-up or rust to various parts of your automobile, such as the braking system.
Other Automotive Systems Affected By Less Driving
Time can have a negative impact on other systems and parts of your car. This is especially true if you leave your car parked for long periods in Chino Valley. Your car’s tire pressure is often negatively impacted by less driving, and your tires can easily lose air without you knowing. Regular pressure checks and refills keep your tires in working condition and ready for your next drive. Other issues to watch for include damage to your car’s body which you can avoid with regular washing, waxing, and if possible, covering.
