Everyone encounters car trouble some point in their life – radiator overheating, nail in tire, AC not working properly, etc. I know because I’ve been there. I’ve ran into a few problems over the years. Just last weekend, I went for an out of the blue car checkup at Firestone, and they found out that my coolant was running low and that my car could have overheated and broken down. Yikes! Good thing, I got it checked before that happened. Not everyone remembers to check their car on a regular basis, so I’m sharing with you what Firestone told me to keep in mind.
- Check the tire pressure (usually between 32-35 psi)
- Radiator and coolant
- Clean your battery
- Maintain AC
- Clean out your car (because extra weight equals extra gas)
If you don’t know how to check these things, just take your car to Firestone, Discount Tires, or any car maintenance place and ask if they offer a free courtesy maintenance check (yay for free things!). The time spent getting your car checked is well worth it.
