How to Extend the Life of Your Used Vehicle | Newport News, VA

Taking care of your vehicle is always important — but it’s especially crucial if you drive an older used model. To save money and ensure that your car runs reliably well into the future, keep these service tips in mind.


Keep up with oil changes and fluid checks

Your vehicle’s mechanical parts run on fluids to keep them moving. The most important is oil. Motor oil lubricates your engine. With low oil or oil full of dirt and grime, the parts rub against each other more. This friction can degrade parts with more wear and tear. Keep to the recommended oil change schedule, about 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Keep an eye on other fluids, too. Transmission fluid and brake fluid keep their systems operating. Radiator fluid keeps your engine cool.  


Maintain the tires

Your tires are the first thing that meets the road, so take care of them to ensure safe driving. Have them rotated regularly so they’ll wear evenly — uneven wear can damage your vehicle over time. Keep the pressure at the proper levels too, as underinflated or overinflated tires can create more wear and even lead to dangerous blowouts.


Change the air filter

Don’t forget to get regular air filter changes. Over time, debris and dust clog the filter, allowing less air into the engine and decreasing your performance.


Clean your vehicle regularly

Regular cleaning does more than keep your truck or car looking good. Dirt, or worse, salt can do damage to your paint job. The paint is the first line of defense against rust on the metal parts of your car. Keep it clean with regular washing. Be sure to keep the interior cleaned as well — it’ll make your drives more pleasant while keeping seats and surfaces in good shape.

Whether you’re planning to purchase a used vehicle here at Casey Auto in Newport News, Virginia, or just want to keep your own car running longer, following these tips will help your ride enjoy a longer life.
