Taking your car for an auto repair service is essential for routine maintenance. You can, however, do some of the more frequent maintenance on your own. On the “Car and Driver” YouTube channel, in a video titled “Basic Automotive Maintenance (Part I),” Ben Wojdyla, a contributing Automotive Editor, demonstrates how to perform basic car maintenance.
The first step is to inspect beneath the hood, where all vital fluids are checked. Consult your car’s owner’s manual to learn about some of the basic maintenance procedures you can perform on your vehicle. Replacing the lubing latches and the air filter is the next stage.
Ascertain that the tire pressures are correct using a digital pressure gauge. This procedure should be performed while the tires are still cold. As part of the stage four process, replace the windshield wipers. It is recommended to replace the windshield following each winter season. Remove the windshield with a screwdriver, then pop them out.
Performing basic car maintenance on your own can save you a lot of money. This is because you may notice some components requiring a mechanic’s professional analysis.
