Car On the MoveIf you are looking for a simple way to protect yourself and your passengers, look no further than how you maintain your vehicle. If you are under the impression that your vehicle is fine because you keep up with your oil change schedule, think again. Other factors need to be considered in addition to oil changes.

Tires


Many people assume that they will know when their tires are low just by a visual inspection. However, it is not possible to visibly determine if the air pressure in your tires is adequate. By the time the tires look low, they have likely been unsafe for quite a while. Therefore, it is recommended that you check your tire air pressure with a digital tire gauge every three months and re-inflate as needed. You will need to check the recommended pressure for your vehicle by looking at the manufacturer's manual or the value may be listed inside the driver's door. Be sure to make the measurements when your tires are cold, not immediately after driving.

In addition, the tread of tires is vital. A tire blow can be very dangerous but can also be avoided by ensuring that your tires are not too worn. Tread is also important when it comes to handling on a wet or icy road. Take a penny and place it in the tread with Lincoln's head upside-down. If you see the top of Lincoln's head, it's time for new tires.

Coolant


Many people think coolant is only important in the summer. While one function of coolant is to keep your engine cool, it is also necessary to keep your engine block from freezing if you live in a cold climate. Therefore it is vital that you make sure the proper type of coolant is used in your car depending on the climate you live in.

Additional car maintenance tips are likely found in your owner's manual. Be sure to keep up with any inspections required and the suggested car maintenance schedule to protect yourself and your passengers from unexpected or dangerous issues.
