Why Car Maintenance Is Essential

images-210.jpgCars need regular maintenance in order to run trouble free.  Some people actually brag about driving an incredible amount of miles without performing maintenance on their vehicle.  However, these are the same people that eventually go to their mechanic and get handed a bill for hundreds of dollars.  An auto warranty can help you avoid unnecessary costs for repairs, but you need to have a maintenance schedule.

The reality is that faulty sensors and bad fuel injectors will cause engine adjustments that are improper resulting in foul sparkplugs.  Also, oil combustion is a result of worn pistons and rings.  And, of course, dirty fuel filters and air filters can cause problems.  A perfect world would have no grime and dirt, which would allow us unbelievable mileage between services, but that’s not reality.

According to the Car Care Council, during the National Car Care Month there were check lanes that show an 83% rate in failure.  The problems were transmission fluid, engine oil, power steering fluid, coolant, and brake fluid.

Drivers need to consult their owner’s manuals and make sure they get regular maintenance.  This will allow vehicles to operate more effectively and for a longer amount of time.  Buying an auto warranty will give you peace of mind when it comes to repair costs.
