Simple tricks that we could do can make our cars and trucks last longer.
Checking the oil once a week will help keep the engine working properly and possibly last longer. Another thing is to keep the tires inflated to the proper PSI. The amount of air to put into the tires is usually indicated on the drivers' door. There should be a sticker on the door to tell you.
Greasing the front end every 3 or 4 months will help to keep all the steering components lubricated and helps stop wear. This is usually done when you do your 3 month oil change or 5000 klm depending on your manufacturer specifications.
Getting a wheel alignment at least once a year (maybe more if you drive over curbs and really rough roads) can help the tires and the front end. It can also help you keep control over your vehicle instead of it pulling one way or another.
Brakes are something I like to check twice a year. Maintaining the brakes not only is safe, it gives us a sence of security. By making sure the brakes are in good repair, we are safer. (Especially if we travel with children.)
Driving With The Heater Fan Motor Pointed At The Floor.
Alot of the time while driving, I will turn on the heater on with it set to blow on the floor. Depending on what time of the year I'm driving, I'll adjust the cold / heat setting to an acceptable level. Most times I just have it on low. The reason why I drive with the air blowing on the floor is that moisture likes to hide in the little nooks and crannies, around the bottoms of the doors, or under the mat, or even carpeted. With the air blowing and pointed down, the air can help to dry these areas and help fight corrosion.
Seems to help..
Driving safe is just as important as driving smart.
