The past year has been a tough one for Ruston, Louisiana, but our community has remained strong and connected through this challenging time. Now that 2021 is almost here, it’s time to commit to making it a better year than 2020 was, both for yourself and for your car.
Start 2021 off right by making these New Year’s resolutions for your vehicle so it has a healthy, happy year too!
Schedule seasonal oil changes
Engine oil flushes and filter changes are vital for your vehicle’s health. This year, start scheduling oil changes every season as part of your car’s regular maintenance schedule. Don’t delay those oil changes for longer than the Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC technicians recommend.
Monitor and rotate the tires
It’s easy to neglect your car’s tires until a flat or puncture occurs. You can prevent those dangerous situations by checking the tread depth and air pressure every week. If either look low, bring your car in for service.
And when you’re having the engine oil changed, get the tires rotated too. That will also help slow their deterioration.
Never drive with depleted fluids
Your car has many fluids it uses to operate properly, and all those liquids should be filled up to their “fill” lines. This includes the wiper fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, and power steering fluid. Look under the hood every month and refill them as needed.
It’s important that you follow a regular maintenance schedule for your car every year. That’s the best way to ensure your vehicle operates properly for years to come. Performing these three tasks is the best way to jump-start that maintenance, so contact Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC to schedule your first auto checkup of 2021.
