Before Heading Back to School, Add Vehicle Maintenance to Your Checklist
Back-to-school is perfect time to get squared away on preventative vehicle maintenance and repairs for your vehicle. Regardless of whether you are driving across town or across the country, being sure your vehicle can get you there safely is important.
Important Maintenance Items for your Checklist
1. Replace Your Air Filter
It’s important to replace your vehicle’s air filter before heading back to school, especially if it’s been a while since the last time it was replaced. This will help keep your car running efficiently and help the air that circulates through your car be cleaner and more breathable for you and your passengers.
2. Change Your Oil
It’s recommended for your vehicle’s oil to be changed every 3,000 miles or so. Regardless of where you drive, it’s surprising how quickly 3,000 miles will add up. By changing your oil before school starts, you’ll have one less thing to stress about this semester.
3. Replacing Spark Plugs
Replacing any dirty or damaged spark plugs is a quick and easy fix you can get done now. Replace them and check it off the list so you don’t get stranded and miss out on all the school fun!
4. Check Your Tires
Improperly inflated tires can not only decrease your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, but they may make it less safe to drive as well. It’s always a good idea to check that your vehicle’s tires are properly inflated.
