General Service Schedule For Your Car

Useful information found at CarCare.org

Auto technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well-today and down the road-is routine maintenance. Yet many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics. A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:

  • 25% of cars had low or dirty engine oil.

  • 13% had low or contaminated brake fluid.

  • 18% had dirty air filters.

  • 17% had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.

  • 16% needed new windshield wiper and 27% had low or contaminated washer fluid.

  • 18% needed new belts

Overall, 89% of vehicles were in need of at least one service or repair.

A regular service schedule can help keep your car running it’s best. For your convenience, the Car Care Council developed a Service Interval Schedule to help you keep track of regular maintenance. Most of the checks and services described here can be done at little or no cost. Best of all, they are quick and easy to do.
