If you’re like many Americans, you can’t afford a brand new car. Your car may be 10 or more years old, but it gets you where you need to go. However, there are ways that you can ensure your older car lasts for as long as possible.
- Make sure that you consistently change the oil and oil filter in your vehicle. This is most definitely one of the most important aspects of car care and health. Usually, this should be done every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
- Change your transmission fluid and differential oil. Your owner’s manual will tell you how frequently this needs be done, but it won’t be as often as the above oil change.
- Make sure that you flush your vehicle’s cooling system and replace it with brand new coolant. This is also in your owner’s manual.
- We get sunburns, but our vehicles fade when they are out in the sun. This has to do with the interior and the exterior of your vehicle.
Ultimately, the most important things to keep your older car healthy and running smoothly is a little TLC every now and then as well as routine maintenance.
