• Always consult your owner's manual first, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter
changed regularly (every 3,000 to 4,000 miles).
• Have all fluids checked, especially brake, power steering, transmission / transaxle, windshield
washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and overall
performance of the vehicle.
• Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least-
expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
• Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can
reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
• Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of
the vehicle's suspension system.
• Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also
should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
• Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake
• Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at
least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
• Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks
and missing sections or segments.
