Follow the directionsEverything you need to know about keeping your vehicle on the road is laid out in the owner’s manual. Manufacturers make a huge effort to clearly explain what services need to be done and when they need to be done. When you have basic services like oil changes done, make sure you visit a qualified shop, like the Billion Auto Group Service Department. Cut-rate operations will cut corners which can lead to costly repairs. Make sure the air filter is changed when you change your oil.

Be cool – Operating an internal combustion will lead to a lot of heat being created. This needs to be dealt with properly. The bulk of engine cooling is done by circulating engine coolant (or antifreeze) to bleed off heat. A failing radiator can lead to much bigger problems down the road.

Get pumped up – Tires are the unsung heroes of any vehicle. They are the first line of defense when it comes to handling and braking. Having under- or overinflated tires can not only cause damage to the treads but can also cause undue stress on the engine. An engine that needs to work harder than necessary will not last long.

    Driving habit of a person, as well as his knowledge on the car maintenance, plays a detrimental role in the lifespan of the car. Lack of regular maintenance threatens the performance of the car as well as also affects its longevity. So, a person should be very careful while driving a vehicle to keep the vehicle in working order for a longer time period. Besides, signs which indicate that the car has some sort of mechanical deformities should not be ignored. Suitable initiatives should be taken into consideration to keep the vehicle in working order.
