All Humble auto repair mechanics can definitely agree that a lot of the problems they are constantly having to repair are problems that could have been avoided just by proper vehicle maintenance.
When you pull up to a red light and you hear a vehicle’s brakes squealing bad or you hear a screech from under their hood; you can almost bet that they aren’t taking proper care of their vehicle! Whether it’s just having a belt repaired because it’s worn and cracked, or properly repairing brake pads / rotors when it’s time; the results of not doing these tasks can be extremely costly!

Preventative Maintenance Tips 101
So with that being said, here are some excellent tips to keep in mind for maintaining your vehicle and avoiding all of those costly mistakes that can cost you thousands more than expected.
Spark Plugs: Checking and maintaining your spark plugs can be a very simple task to check that can ensure that your vehicle always starts properly. If your spark plugs are soiled then you could be left out in the middle of no where while your vehicle fails to start.
Headlights: This one is pretty simple as well and easily noticeable. Always make sure your headlights are working properly to ensure you can view objects from a safe distance + avoiding getting some costly traffic tickets!
Air Filters: Making sure your air filters are clean and effective is imperative for your engine’s performance and your own health. Air filters remove toxins from your cabin air as well as assist the engine in running smoothly. An old, dirty air filter in your vehicle is the equivalent to trying to breathe while having a mouth full of cotton balls…no good!
Belts: Always make sure to check your belts and ensure that they’re not cracked or frayed. This is very dangerous and can also cause you to be helpless while you car doesn’t start.
Oil Change + Transmission Fluid Checks: By having regular oil changes + transmission fluid checks, you can avoid some very serious repair costs! You should be getting your oil changed once every 3,000 – 5,000 miles and transmission fluid flush every 25,000 – 30,000 miles. Transmission issues don’t go away on their own and when left untreated, you’re liable to end up with a new transmission and a $4,000 bill!
