Having these items on-hand and knowing how to check your antifreeze can mean the difference between getting to a repair shop and a costly tow.
The automaker that has manufactured your car has done extensive testing on your car’s engine in the lab as well as in extreme real-world driving to determine its performance in many aspects.
Regularly rotating your tires helps evenly distribute tire wear – helping you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing traction on all four wheels.
Replacing worn out spark plugs with new ones (with sharp new edges) effectively restores the ignition system’s efficiency. Misfires are reduced, power is restored, economy of operation is enhanced and emissions are reduced.
It also can be a sign that your car is getting poor fuel economy and emitting higher levels of pollutants. You should always have the car checked as soon as possible to prevent expensive damage.
