5 Top Tips for Vehicle Maintenance
1.Know your driving conditions and reference your owner's manual for your vehicle's preventive maintenance schedule.
2.Change your engine oil and filter as appropriate. The oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle.
3.Keep your tires pumped. To maximize gas mileage, find the proper tire pressure in your vehicle owner's manual or door jamb. Be sure to check your spare too.
