Change Your Driving Habits :More than anything else you can do, changing how you drive will save you
tons on your vehicle’s brake costs. Slowing down earlier, not coming to abrupt stops and not riding the brakes will go a long way toward making your car’s equipment last longer than it otherwise would.

Excessive heat and overcharging shortens the life of
a battery
:Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, which then damages the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging
system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate, which will eventually destroy a battery.

Clean brake dust off regularly:Brake dust contains
all sorts of nasty stuff. If you leave it too long, the combination of road grime, moisture and heat from your brakes will bake it on to your wheels . Brake dust normally clings to wheels with static electricity so a damp sponge and clean cold water is the best way to get it off.

Fill with washer fluid only Don’t add water to the
windshield washer reservoir. It won’t clean as well as washer fluid, and it may freeze in cold weather and damage the system. Don’t try to run your windshield washer system once you suspect there’s no more fluid in the tank, or you may damage the washer fluid pump.

For stubborn carpet or mat stains After vacuuming floor mats or interior carpeting, apply foam rug cleaner to resistant stains as directed by the maker. Work the foam into a few square feet at a time, using a wet sponge or brush. Vacuum when dry.

Use upholstery cleaners on soiled seats: The same upholstery cleaners you use at home can be used on your car’s upholstery. Use them sparingly, however,
to avoid saturating the fabric. Use a clean cloth to wipe away the foam. On velour seats, brush the fibers gently to avoid matting them and to preserve the original texture of the fabric.

Preserve your car during long-term storage :If you
are not going to use your car for more than a month, store it properly to prevent unnecessary damage and repairs upon your return.
1. Fill the gas tank to help prevent condensation from accumulating in the gas tank. Add a fuel stabilizer and drive the car around a bit to distribute the additive to engine parts.
2. Wash and wax the car thoroughly to protect the finish.
3. Place a vapor barrier on your garage floor. A 4- mil polyethylene drop cloth will do.
4. Disengage the parking brake to help avoid brake corrosion.
5. Put the car on jack stands to take the weight of the vehicle off the wheels and tires.
6. Disconnect and remove the battery to keep it from draining. Place the battery on a trickletype charger. Or periodically drain the battery, using a small light bulb, and then recharge it with a low-volt charger.
7. Plug the tailpipe with a rag to prevent moist air from infiltrating into it.

Give your car a new skin: New self-adhering urethane films have been developed to protect the most vulnerable painted areas on your car from stone chips and other minor abrasions.You can wash and wax these surfaces, just as you would the rest of the paint job. While it’s best to have these films professionally installed, you can peel them off yourself. One product is made by 3M, and you can learn more by going to 3m.com and searching for Scotchgard Paint Protection Film Solutions.

Keep an auto log Keep a pad and pencil in the glove compartment and use them to record your gas fill-
ups and mileage. If you notice that your gas mileage worsens, mention it to your service man. It may be
an early warning sign that something is wrong with
your car.

Spring Showers Bring Driving Safety Hazards:Rainy
weather also affects driver visibility. Because 90 percent of driving decisions depend on good vision, a clean windshield is imperative. Streaking and smearing impair vision and are caused by worn windshield blades.

Blast mats with the hose : When washing your car, drag out the rubber or carpet floor mats and blast
them with the hose.This will dislodge dirt particles that, if allowed to build up, will grind holes in your mats. Let the mats dry thoroughly in the sun before reinstalling them.

Clean dash gauges carefully: Use a soft damp cloth to lightly wipe dust from the clear plastic lenses on your dashboard. Too much pressure will scratch them. Too many scratches can make it difficult to read your gauges under certain lighting conditions.

Check your battery terminals:Most modern cars run on a 12 volt negative ground electrical system. If
your battery terminals or contacts aren't clean, you're making it more difficult for the current to pass around the electrical system. Remove the terminal caps and clean each contact post with a wire brush to get a nice clean metal contact surface. Do the same to the terminal caps, then reattach them.
