There are many vehicle owners that don’t think about preventative vehicle maintenance as long as their car gets them from point A to point B. However, with winter just around the corner, make sure you follow the vehicle maintenance schedule so that your car will take you safely and comfortably to your destination.

More than likely, your vehicle owner’s manual is not on your list of reading material. However, if you’re not sure what car maintenance needs to be done, check out your owner’s manual. You will find a schedule similar to the one below:

  • Every 3,000 to 7,000 Miles. Depending on the type of oil used, many mechanics still suggest that the oil and oil filter be changed. This is also the time to check the transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid, and wipers, tires and all exterior lights.
  • Every 15,000 miles. Replace the air filter.
  • Every 20,000 miles. Inspect the battery and coolant.
  • Every 25,000 miles. Replace the fuel filter.
  • Every 30,000 miles. Replace the air filter and power steering fluid and have the coolant, radiator hoses, HVAC system, brake pads, and all suspension components thoroughly inspected.
  • Every 35,000 miles. Inspect and replace the battery if it is not holding a charge or if it is three to four years old.
  • Every 40,000 miles. Inspect the ignition and suspension systems. It may be necessary to replace the spark plugs and wires.
  • Every 60,000 miles. Replace brake pads and brake fluid, radiator hoses, coolant, power steering fluid, and timing belt. Inspect the HVAC, suspension components and tires.

Note to Remember: Keep a record of all maintenance and repairs performed. This will help prevent expensive repairs, avert possible roadside breakdowns, and increase the driving safety of your vehicle. It will also optimize the resale value of your car,
