With vehicles being the investment they are, it’s only natural that you’d want to get the most value out of your hard-earned money, right? Well, the best way to get the most out of your vehicle is regular and through car maintenance! Get maintenance tips below and stop by Urban Autocare in Denver today for quality, affordable car maintenance services.

Regularly Change the Oil and Oil Filter

This tip may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised just how many people neglect to change their oil on a regular basis. Regularly changing out your engine oil and the oil filter in your car may sound like an inconvenience, but it’s one of the best ways to ensure your car stays on the road for years to come. Depending on who you ask, the frequency at which you should be changing your oil can vary. At Urban Autocare in Denver, we typically recommend every 4,000-5,000 miles or every 6-12 months. This could need to be done more frequently if you are someone who drives your car more frequently or aggressively. If you’re about due for an oil change, stop by Urban Autocare in Denver for your car maintenance services today!

Regularly Check Your Tires

Checking your tires doesn’t take long, but it can go a long way in ensuring the safety of you and your passengers. Your tires are the only thing connecting you to the road and they can ultimately determine the level of control you have over your vehicle — especially in adverse weather conditions. So it only makes sense that if you want to get the most value out of your car that you would check your tires about every month. When you check your tires, ensure they are filled with enough air and check the tread life. You can also look for any damage or punctures to ensure they are in driving condition. It’s also worth noting that if you drive a two-wheel-drive vehicle that you should also be rotating your tires on a regular basis. This ensures that the tread wears evenly across all four tires. If your tires have good tread, no damage, and have the right amount of air, you’re good to go!

Regularly Check Fluids

Cars with internal combustion engines have a variety of fluids that need to be checked and topped off from time to time. Every time you go to have the oil changed or change the oil yourself, ensure that all of your fluids are at the appropriate level. If you are checking the fluids yourself and are unsure what the appropriate level is, consult your owner’s manual — it will have all the information you need! If you take your vehicle to a car maintenance shop like Urban Autocare in Denver, we’ll take care of that for you so you don’t have to worry about it. The fluids that need to be checked include (but aren’t limited to): 

  • Engine Oil
  • Coolant
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Brake Fluid
  • Transmission Fluid

Act Fast When There’s an Issue

Perhaps the most important maintenance tip of all is to act fast when your car has an issue. We’re all guilty of ignoring a check-engine light or other car maintenance concerns because it doesn’t seem like a big deal at the time. But small issues can quickly spiral out of control by impacting other systems. The longer you wait to deal with an issue, the worse it becomes. And, more times than not, the worse the issue is, the more costly it is going to be to repair. So if your car has an issue, no matter how small, addressing it quickly and completely will help keep your car running smooth and strong for years to come.
