Cars are important to your everyday life, since they make travel convenient in places like Indianapolis. If you want your cars to serve you longer, you have to know how to maintain them. Here are some basic car maintenance tips for you.

Keep all fluids in the car—including oil--clean and make sure fluid levels are at full or close to it. Over time, these fluids leak, lose their restorative qualities, and evaporate due to the heat emitted by the car itself. Read your car manual if you’re not sure about the type of fluid to use. You can buy these fluids from your Indianapolis car dealer or at any filling station.

Always keep an eye on the dials on your dashboard. Never ignore warning signals like “Brakes” and “Check Engine,” –when this happens, check your vehicle as soon as possible. For instance, if your engine is overheating, the radiator might not have enough coolant/antifreeze. If your engine overheats only during specific instances, e.g. when the car is in neutral mode or speeding on the highway, ask your car dealer’s technician to troubleshoot the problem.

There are signs that can point to major problems, especially if you’ve overlooked things for too long. Some of these signs include irregular noises, unusual smells, significant changes in the engine performance, sputtering, unusual feel of the brake pedal, and leaks. Read the troubleshooting part of the car manual to help you pinpoint the cause of these problems, or ask a car technician.

If you intend to replace some car parts, make sure your replacements are of good quality. Original parts may cost more than generic car parts, but if you want keep your car in good condition and enjoy a good driving experience, you might as well purchase original parts. Dealers of new and used cars in Indianapolis also sell original car parts and provide maintenance services.

If your car is relatively new, you should drive smoothly if you want to keep wear and tear at a minimum. Don’t accelerate too fast or brake too hard; both of these can take their toll on the parts of your car. Ask the dealers of Indianapolis used cars for tips on driving your specific car model.

The first thing people see is your car’s exterior, so you should also take good care of it. Wash the body of your car regularly. You can wash it yourself or do what other used cars Indianapolis owners do: bring it to a car wash. Regularly check the body of your car for rust and scratches, among other things.
