What is the Recommended Maintenance Schedule for My Vehicle?

Taking care of your vehicle is essential for it to offer optimal performance on the West Chester roads. Because your vehicle is comprised of different elements, it’s important that all these elements are properly maintained at the correct intervals. Consulting your vehicle’s manual will let you know the optimal time to have your vehicle serviced. However, there are some general schedules you can follow so you don’t forget to have your vehicle properly checked.

Oil

Your vehicle’s oil helps to lubricate the many parts that make up your engine, and if you run out of oil, it can cause severe and expensive damage to areas under the hood. In general, your vehicle should have its oil changed every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. You can opt to do this oil change yourself or bring it to a professional technician to do it for you.

Battery

Although your battery doesn’t require any maintenance, you should at least know where it’s located and how to replace it when the day comes. In addition, simply keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t show any signs of wear and tear (like leaking) or damage. If you notice anything strange about your battery, it’s safer to just replace it than to cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Windshield Wipers

Your windshield wipers are important for the safety of you and your passengers, so be sure to replace these whenever they start to become streaky or miss cleaning the water on your windshield. Depending on where you live, you may want to purchase some snow-centric windshield wipers to help you keep clear visibility when the West Chester weather turns bad.

Air Filters

Air needs to move through your engine and its cavities in order for these pieces to run properly. Be sure to check and replace your vehicle’s engine air filter, oil filter, and cabin air filter to ensure particles aren’t building up and causing a backup that could be harmful to your vehicle’s parts. Again, this is something you can tackle by yourself or use the help of a professional.

Tires

Finally, your vehicle’s tires are also something that you should inspect regularly. Look for signs of damage or general wear and tear. If you don’t feel any treads on your tires anymore, it’s time to replace them. Also, check the tire pressure regularly to ensure your tires are full enough to handle the roads.
