How to Keep Your Engine Running Smoothly

Manufacturer's maintenance schedule

The owner's manual for every vehicle prescribes maintenance. Oil changes, filter replacements, and other basics are included. This application assists you in maintaining your engine.

Maintain engine oil and filter

Engine oil reduces friction, wear, and lubrication. The effectiveness of dirty oil is reduced. Change the oil and filter at the recommended intervals to maintain engine performance.

Check and fill fluid

Check the levels of engine coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid on a regular basis. Engine overheating and damage are caused by low fluid levels. All fluids should be checked and replenished.

Check and replace filters

Air and fuel filters have an impact on engine performance. Air and gasoline filters, respectively, keep dirt and debris out of the engine and fuel system. Replace any clogged filters.

Maintain engine cooling

Examine the coolant level as well as the radiator, hoses, and belts for leaks and damage. Keep the manufacturer's suggested coolant mixture in place and cleanse the system.

Maintain the drive belts

The serpentine belt provides power to the components of your car. Over time, these belts wear and break, reducing performance. Examine and replace as needed.

Maintain the battery

A bad battery can put a strain on the engine's electrical system. Examine the battery terminals for rust and clean and secure them. Replace a faulty battery.

Warning signs

Any unusual engine noises, vibrations, or dashboard warning lights should be addressed. Ignoring these warning signs can lead to worse difficulties.

Avoid acceleration and quick braking

Avoid abrupt acceleration and braking. These actions exhaust the engine. Engines are protected by smooth driving and gradual acceleration.

Inspect the engine for leaks

Examine the engine compartment for leaks of oil, coolant, and other fluids. Leaks may indicate an impending problem.
