Owning a car requires some work if you want to keep it running and in great shape. Luckily, it can be pretty easy to achieve this. Use these tips to stay in the know and keep your car at its best.



5 Things to Know When You're a Car Owner

When you buy a car, you probably already know that there is some work involved in car ownership. It's not as easy as just buying a car and hoping it stays in great shape. You have to keep up with maintenance and get to know its different systems. To help you get familiar with some of the basics, check out these tips.

Be Ready for a Flat Tire

No one wants to get a flat tire, but this is sometimes inevitable. While you can call roadside assistance to take care of this for you, it's never a bad idea to know how to take care of this yourself just in case. To start, get to know where your spare tire is located. You want to be sure you have a spare tire and that it's ready for use. After all, discovering it's gone or flat won't be helpful when you already have a flat tire. After this, get to know the different tools you need to change a tire. Watch some instructional videos and practice doing it so that you're as prepared as possible if you get a flat.

Understand Your Car's Fluids

Your car has a number of fluids that it relies on to keep it running strong. Some of these fluids include your motor oil, coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. Get to know where these are located in your car, what they look like, and what they do. Get comfortable checking on them so that you know when they need to be changed. It also helps to know what their lifespan is so that you're prepared to change them when needed. Finally, knowing what they look like and what level they should be at will help you detect leaks before they turn into a serious problem.

Get to Know Your Motor Oil

One of the most important fluids you should get to know is your car's motor oil. Many people know this fluid exists and that it will need to be changed periodically, but they may not know much more beyond that. It's a good idea to learn what your oil does and where it is located. On top of this, you should know where to check it and what to look for when checking on it. This will help you detect when your oil is old and needs to be changed. When your car is ready for an oil change, give it a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville. Using a synthetic oil like AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil can keep your car running at its best. You can find more products like this by contacting the oil pros at Huff Oil Group. Give them a call at (978) 259-5463 to get your questions answered or to place your order!

Keep Your Battery Going

Your car's battery is another part you must get to know. Since your car won't go anywhere without a battery, it makes sense to get comfortable with yours. Since most batteries only last anywhere from three to five years, it's important that you know how old yours is. If your battery is nearing its end, get to know what signs of trouble you should keep an eye out for. If your battery does run out, you may still be able to jumpstart it so that you're not stranded. To do this, you of course have to know how to use jumpstarting cables. Be sure to always carry some in your trunk and know how to use them.

Check Your Tires

Finally, your car's tires will need your attention to stay at their best. If they're not properly cared for, this can lead to uneven wear, difficulty maneuvering, and even reduced gas mileage. To start, be sure you know what the recommended air pressure is for your tires. Learn how to check your air pressure and how to fill up your tires so that they're always at the right level. On top of this, learn to check the tire tread so that you know when you need new tires.
