SIMPLE TIPS THAT CAN EXTEND YOUR CAR’S LIFE
Hello, and welcome back to part 2 of our series about how to keep your car running longer. Let’s keep things going with some more useful tips you can use to extend the life of your vehicle.
On your dash, there are a lot of different gauges and lights, but some are more important than others. There are three things on your dash that you always need to pay attention to: the engine temperature gauge, the oil pressure light, and the brake light.
If you see a hot temperature gauge or if your oil light comes on, you probably have a few minutes of driving around with those things, and then your car will be only be worth its weight in scrap metal. That’s bad. As for your brake light, it’s trying to give you a warning that your car won’t stop like you’re used to it stopping, and that could lead to you rear-ending a soccer mom if you’re not careful.
If one of these lights comes on in your vehicle, pull over to the safest place you can, and give us a call. We’ll get a tow truck out there to take your car so you don’t do any more damage to it.
Our final tip for you is to get rid of the dead weight you are carrying around in your vehicle. The stuff in your trunk, like rock salt, golf clubs, and folding chairs, is causing wear and tear on the critical systems in your vehicle. Getting rid of this stuff will also increase your gas mileage.
Come back next month, where we’ll give you even more tips to keep your car running longer. Until then, take it to the house!
