Tuning up cars for top conditions can reduce petroleum expenses by having an efficient engine and extended car life span. A well maintained car does not gobble petrol easily and saves several cents or dollars that should go for other important necessity. The following are ways to care for a car.

* Check tire pressure. A deflating tire causes engine to use more petrol.
* Flush radiator coolant to prevent corrosion and overheating.
* Change oil regularly. This is done after the car had run for 7, 500 miles. Avoid skipping even a single oil change as this may cause serious engine trouble. A dipstick can indicate acceptable oil level and color. Yellow golden brown color indicates OK while dark color means “change oil now”
* Visit authorized and licensed automotive shops. A car service center must be trustworthy and reliable business partner. There are numerous shops such as car   auto starter problem houston
*Reduce unnecessary load as car uses more fuel while running on heavy weight.
*Reduce mileage by using shortcuts and cutting unnecessary trips
*Check brake fluid level to prevent faulty brakes and accidents.
*Use car air conditioner when necessary.
*Check car battery for electrolyte levels and electrode contacts. A faulty battery can prevent car from starting.
*Check radiator for carbon buildup. An opaque radiator means change is necessary.
*Wash car regularly. Apply non corrosive cleaning detergents such as car shampoo. Buff car body with carnauba wax for shiny looking results.
*Change car parts if necessary such spark plugs, timing belts, fuses, and air filter.

It would be nice if you do the regular oil and air check ups and make sure that the battery is charged enough and weekly maintenance would help you to avoid major problems

Tires are a car’s only connection to the road, so making sure they are in good shape and properly inflated is essential for automotive safety, optimum driving performance and potential cost savings, including better fuel mileage.
