Following a regular schedule of basic automotive service is definitely a win-win situation. It will help your vehicle finish out the summer with ease. Timely automotive service increases the performance of your vehicle, driving safety, prolongs the life of your car, and saves you time and money spent on costly automotive repair. It also helps to save the environment and our natural resources.

Here are eight automotive service tips to help your car finish the summer with ease:

  • Check the tires. Under-inflated tires, tires out of balance, or wheels out of alignment decreases fuel efficiency because the engine has to work harder to push the vehicle down the road.
  • Observe speed limits. Even though the speed limit is considerably higher these days, driving consistently above 55 mph decreases fuel efficiency significantly. Use cruise control as much as possible and avoid fast accelerations and jerky stops.
  • Avoid excessive idling. With today’s advanced automotive technology, warm-ups on cold mornings are no longer necessary. Turn the motor off if you have to wait more than a few minutes.
  • Remove extra items. Less weight means better mileage. Keep your loads to a minimum and place luggage in the trunk rather than on a roof rack to reduce drag.
  • Eliminate unnecessary driving. Consolidate your daily errands, join a carpool, and try to travel when traffic is light to avoid stop-and-go conditions.
  • Engine tune-up. A misfiring spark plug can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30%. Follow the maintenance service schedules as recommended in your owner’s manual.
  • Keep your A/C in prime condition. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), states that car air conditioners are responsible for almost one-third of the gases released into the atmosphere. Your air conditioner should be serviced only by a technician certified to handle refrigerants.
  • Proper disposal of used fluids and parts. Many automotive service facilities will dispose of used oil, anti-freeze, worn out tires, and old batteries for you. Or call your city or county agencies for recycling sites.

Learn how to operate your vehicle efficiently, maintain it regularly, and dispose of used parts and fluids properly. Ensure that our environment and natural resources are safe for generations to come!
