Heading into the new year with a well-maintained vehicle is a resolution every car owner can get behind. Performing annual car maintenance can keep both you and your vehicle on the road for many more years to come. From your friends at James Ceranti Nissan, here’s a quick and easy list of steps for keeping your vehicle in great condition in 2021.
Keep up with oil changes
This year, your first car-care resolution should be to keep up with regular oil changes. Your vehicle’s engine needs fresh oil to run smoothly. As the oil ages, it becomes dirty and doesn’t do as well at lubricating the engine parts, which can lead to expensive damage. Check the oil levels every time you fill up on fuel and top off as needed, and schedule regular oil changes at James Ceranti Nissan.
Check the fluids
Oil is not the only essential fluid under the hood. You should also regularly check in on brake, transmission, and power-steering fluid. Each of these plays a role in keeping your vehicle running smoothly and safely. Your owner’s manual will show you where and how to check your fluid levels. You can also schedule an appointment with us and let our technicians top off the fluids for you.
Take care of your tires
Proper inflation and regular rotations are important for the longevity of your tires. This year, get into the habit of checking your tire pressure every time you stop for fuel. Keeping the pressure at the level recommended in your owner’s manual will ensure optimum efficiency and traction.
