Do Some Basic Maintenance Checks on Your Own

Though the United States has invented many things, the modern car isn't one of them. German inventor Karl Benz patented his Benz Patent-Motorwagen in 1886. And though Americans didn't devise them, cars define much of what it means to be an American. Along with pickup trucks and SUVs, cars made us mobile, transformed our society and shaped our modern civilization. It is estimated that the average American driver spends about 10 hours per week behind the wheel.

Think of LC Speedway Motors when you are considering buying, selling or trading your next pre-owned vehicle. We offer cars, SUVs and pickup trucks in a variety of brands.

Here are five basic maintenance tips that will improve your vehicle's safety, life and performance.

Check the air filter. It prevents dirt and particles from entering the engine. Clogged air filters or loose fittings can cause a host of problems. Get your filters changed every 12 months or after 12,000 miles, whichever comes fast.

Measure tire pressure on a regular basis. Tires are one of the most important components of your car for safety, efficiency and comfort. Your tires will last quite a bit longer, and it's easy to check the pressure and add air yourself.

Inspect oil, power steering and transmission fluids regularly.

Check the battery. First check the cables and their connection to the terminals. Clean the terminal with a battery cleaning brush, if needed. Check the battery's power supply by starting the engine, turning on the lights and seeing how bright or dim they are.

Get your ties rotated and balanced every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. This will improve their balance and wear.
