Cars are not cheap, nor are they disposable. Some might last longer than others without failing or needing constant repairs, it all depends on the care they receive. Yes, the type and brand of the car matter when it comes to longevity, but so do your driving habits and care. Huff Oil Group brings these short guide to help you increase your vehicle’s life in Fayetteville.

Driving Style

Your driving style greatly impacts your car’s life. Driving it hard and fast can cause some of the pieces to deteriorate quicker. Using the wrong oil for your driving style can affect it too. The following are some driving tips that can help your car continue working smoothly.
  • Letting your engine get really hot from time to time helps flush contaminants from the motor oil.
  • Brake in time: braking at the last moment wears down your brakes much quicker. You need to brake slowly when you are approaching red lights or stop signs.
  • Accelerate the same way as you would brake: slow. Give your car some time to increase the driving speed instead of just slamming your foot into the pedal.
  • Don’t overload your car. If there are some things you won’t be using taking up space in your car that, leave them home. The extra weight makes your engine work harder and burn off more fuel.

Frequent Maintenance Visits

You should schedule regular maintenance visits with your mechanic. Your car will get the necessary pieces replaced, or  fluids replenished. Here are some of the things you should expect from those maintenance appointments:
  • The tires will be rotated in order to improve their life expectancy and improve gas mileage. This should happen around every 7,500 miles.
  • There are some vehicle parts that need to be replaced before they start failing. The radiator is an example. It can last up to 10 years or 150,000 miles, but eventually it  does need to be changed.
  • The battery will be tested, but you can keep it in shape at home. You should check that the electrolyte fluid is at its necessary level, there’s no corrosion, and all the cables are properly adjusted.
  • They will change the spark plugs every 60,000 miles
  • Some of the fluids, like the oil will be flushed and replaced.

Change the Fluids and Filters

To keep your car working for many years to come, you have to keep up with its lubrication needs. These are only some of the fluids and filters you need to replace. Although your owner’s manual probably has all the change interval information you need, it’s a good idea to keep track of every fluid change your vehicle gets and pay attention to any fluid leaks you find. Synthetic oil change: You shouldn’t really listen to the 3,000 miles oil change recommendation. The oil is still in good condition and you would only be wasting money by getting a synthetic oil change then. Some of the signs that tell you it’s time for a change are: your engine is sounding louder than usual, you don’t remember when was your last oil change, the ‘check engine’ light on your dashboard is on, or the oil is really dark and gritty. Keep track of each oil change, so you have a better idea when the next one is due. Don’t forget to change the filter whenever you get a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville. Your car deserves the best and that means it should get the best synthetic oil in the market, AMSOIL synthetic oil. When the time for a synthetic oil change arrives you should call Huff Oil Group at (910) 988-9328 or visit their online store. You’ll get all the help you need to purchase your AMSOIL synthetic oil in Fayetteville. Brake fluid: For cars with an antilock braking system (ABS), you should change the brake fluid every two years or 24,000 miles. For cars without ABS, it should happen every 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever happens first. Fuel filter: This filter should be replaced every 50,000 miles. If the filter gets blocked it may cause the fuel pump to fail. Try to use the same filter brand every time. Power steering fluid: It should be changed every 24,000 miles or each two years. If you change the brake fluid, it’s time for new power steering fluid too. Coolant: You should flush the cooling system at least once a year and replace it with a coolant solution that protects against corrosion.
