What is My Car Maintenance Schedule?

Purchasing a used vehicle in fantastic condition is only step one. Once in your possession, you have to ensure that it runs well for years to come by keeping up with routine automotive service. It doesn’t matter what car brand you’re driving, from Honda to Toyota and RAM, treat your vehicle right, and it will treat you right on the Queens roads ahead. Though each manufacturer has their own recommended maintenance schedules, here are some suggested routine services from the Major World service center.

Every Three Months or 3,000 Miles

Every three months or 3,000 miles, avoid unexpected problems on Brooklyn roads by checking the following:

  • Fuel filter
  • Tire pressure, tread, and wear and tear
  • Automatic transmission, power steering, wiper fluid levels
  • Engine oil and air filter
  • Belts, exhaust, and hoses
  • All lights inside and out

Every Six Months or 6,000 Miles

In addition to the above preventative maintenance, you’ll want to do these checks every six months or 6,000 miles to keep things running hunky-dory:

  • Car battery and cables
  • Chassis lubrication
  • Windshield wipers
  • Polish your vehicle

Every 12 Months or 12,000 Miles

Finally, you should get these car maintenance checks every year, in addition to the three-month and six-month services:

  • Brake system
  • Coolant levels
  • Transmission fluid levels
  • Steering and suspension

Every Month

Most of these monthly tasks can be done at home in the comfort of your own driveway. Checks you should do each month include:

  • Check to see if the check engine light is on
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled
  • Clean the interior and exterior
  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work
  • Check tire pressure and tread

Why Follow a Car Maintenance Schedule?

In short, cars are intricate machines that need regular care to function properly for your Bronx drives. This is obvious, but it’s easy to forget the risks of ignoring maintenance during the chaos of everyday life. Without routine auto service, you risk experiencing serious issues down the road, which can lead to the need for expensive auto parts and repairs. Routine maintenance not only keeps your car, truck, or SUV in running smoothly, but it also saves you money.
