One of the reassuring aspects of modern car is that they require far less successful maintenance to keep them operating smoothly. 

Changing the flash fittings, breaker focuses, and condenser used to be a once-in-a-while activity, and body rust was accepted as a normal though the lamentable consequence of aging.


New car maintenance steps

Many flash fittings may now go 100,000 miles without needing to be replaced. The focuses and condenser were removed due to an electrical start. The case, suspensions, and even a few gearboxes are all lubricated indefinitely. 

  1. Rust-through warranties on production lines typically last six years or longer. 
  2. Overall reliability has increased. 
  3. Most late-model cars and trucks should be able to go 200,000 miles with routine maintenance.

What is the most important maintenance on a car?

When you buy a new car, you may be concerned about how to maintain it and how long it will last.

Here are a few simple, on-again, off-again tests and procedures you may use to help you get.

1 Examine the motor oil

The most important step in maintaining your new car is to check the motor oil at least once a month for a vehicle in good condition, and even more frequently if you see an oil hole or need to add oil regularly. To achieve a correct dipstick reading, the car should be parked on flat ground. Don't go overboard. Furthermore, if you do have a break, discover it and fix it as quickly as possible.

2 Inspect the pneumatic force of the tires

The second important step in maintaining your new car is to check tire gaseous tension once a month and before any long trips. 

  • Use an accurate tire-constrain measure to check the swelling pressure in each tire, including spares. 
  • When the tires are cold, do this (before the vehicle has been driven or after close to a few miles of driving). 
  • Use the manufacturer's recommended swelling pressure, not the maximum weight shown on the tire's sidewall. 
  • The recommended pressure is usually located on a front doorjamb bulletin, in the glove compartment, or the owner's handbook. 
  • Additionally, look for uneven or asymmetrical wear, cuts, and any visible sidewall swelling while inspecting tires.

3 Give it a good scrubbing

The third important step in maintaining your new car is to try to wash it regularly if at all possible. To remove soil and street salt, wash the body and, if necessary, water down the bumper wells and underneath. When the water spots have grown to the size of a quarter, it's time to wax the finish.

In the meantime, there are several things to consider when your car has logged 200,000 kilometers.

Several automakers recommend replacing the engine oil and channel every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. For the most part, this is sufficient. 

The change stretch should be reduced to every 3,000 miles or three months for "severe" driving—with consecutive, frigid starts and short trips, dusty conditions, or trailer towing— (For specific stretches recommended for your vehicle, consult your owner's handbook.) Diesel and turbocharged engines, for example, may require more frequent oil changes.

Check the air filter first

Place the air-filter element in front of a bright light source after removing it. If you can't see the light, replace it. In any event, keep to the service intervals that have been established.

2 Make that the constant-velocity-joint boots are in good shape

Examine the bellows-like rubber boots, also known as CV boots, on the drive axles of front-wheel-drive and certain four-wheel-drive cars. Replace any that are cut, cracked, or leaking right away. If dirt gets into the CV joint, it may rapidly become a costly repair.

3 Examine your exhaust system

If you're ready to undertake some under-car checks, look for any rusted-through exhaust parts that should be replaced. Tighten any loose clamps as well. While the automobile is on the on-ramps, do this. If you get your oil changed at a shop, have them do these inspections. 

Listen for differences in the exhaust sound while driving. Rather than repairing components of the exhaust system at separate periods, it's typically best to replace the complete exhaust system at once.

4 Examine the brakes

It makes sense for most individuals to get their brakes checked and serviced by a business. Remove all wheels and inspect the braking system if you do your brake maintenance. 

Replace worn pads or linings, and have rotors or drums that have been badly scored machined or replaced. Brakes should be checked at least twice a year, and more often if you drive regularly.

5 Examine the fluids

The automatic gearbox is sealed in many contemporary autos. Check the gearbox dipstick with the engine warmed up and running on automobiles where it is not sealed (see the owner's handbook for specifics). 

Check the level in the brake-fluid reservoir and the power steering pump dipstick (it's normally linked to the fluid-reservoir cover). Top up and have the system examined for leaks if the brake fluid level is low.

6 Thoroughly clean the radiator

Remove dirt with a soft brush and wash the outside of the radiator with a detergent solution to prevent overheating.

7 Make sure the battery is charged

Check the battery's connections and cables for corrosion and check sure they are firmly linked. Check the fluid level of the battery every few months if it has detachable caps, especially in hotter areas.

Furthermore, frequent engine carbon cleaning is required. It will increase the value of your vehicle.
