Change the air filter This is something you can do
easily at home without using tools, and should be done approximately every 12 thousand miles. You can buy a matching filter at nearly any auto parts store and your owner's manual will show you where your air filter is located. A dirty, dusty filter can lower gas mileage.

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.

Keep the front end aligned If you notice your car
shaking while driving at high speeds (not while
braking - shuddering while braking indicates warped
rotors), or if your tread is wearing unevenly, then you may need an alignment. This is also key to extending the life of your tires and will keep the tread even for increased safety.

Don’t mix coolants :Avoid mixing coolants that are
different in color. If your coolant is pink, don’t add a
green formulation to it. Otherwise, you’ll end up
with a thick solution that won’t do its job. Use only
the coolant specified in your owner’s manual.

Don’t fill up if you see the tanker : If you happen to see a gasoline tanker filling the tanks at your local
gas station, come back another day or go to a different station. As the station’s underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment. Sediment in your gas can clog fuel filters and fuel injectors, causing poor performance and possibly necessitating repairs.

Top off your brake fluid : Check brake fluid monthly.Wipe dirt from the master cylinder lid before you open it. If you need fluid, add the type recommended by your car’s maker. Never substitute
other fluids, such as transmission or power-steering fluid. And don’t use brake fluid from a previously opened container. Once exposed to air, brake fluid absorbs moisture and contaminates easily.

]Use your parking brake . Even if you are driving a car with an automatic transmission, use your parking
brake regularly, especially if you're parked on an incline. It helps keep the brakes adjusted in the rear of the car and makes them last longer. Do not use your parking brake in the wintertime because your brake will freeze and it will be stuck until it thaws out.

Buy gas at reputable service stations Ask whether
the gas you buy is filtered at the pump and if the station has a policy about changing the pump filters regularly. If you get a song and dance, find another gas station. Some stations don’t have pump filters, making you more vulnerable to dirty gasoline. Other stations may not mix alcohol and fuel properly — or worse, water down their product. Find a station you trust and stick to it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Don’t forget the timing belt : On many cars, it’s the
belt you can’t see that is the most critical. If your manual says, as many do, that you should replace the timing belt at 50,000 miiles, do it! A failed timing belt can, depending on engine type, cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your engine.

Dilute your coolant :Your cooling system needs both coolant-antifreeze and water, so don’t pour undiluted coolant into your cooling system. Dilute it with water to the commonly recommended 50-50 ratio. Similarly, don’t use straight water in your system either.The coolant protects against corrosion and freezing.The water ensures good heat transfer from the coolant to the radiator.

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 awire brush to get a nice clean metal contact surface. Do the same to the terminal caps, then reattach them.
