Four Car Maintenance Tips for Women
By: Luke Shaff ~
While there are always exceptions, far too many women are far too unfamiliar with proper car maintenance information. There are simply some things that everyone should know how to do when it comes to cars. Rest assured, you don’t have to be a professional auto repair specialist in order to keep your car running well. Are you or someone you know is hesitant about cars? Here are four of the most important items about car maintenance you should know.
Change a Flat Tire
Unless you’re lucky enough to get a flat tire right next to an auto shop, there’s a good chance you’ll be on your own when it comes time to change a flat. While an auto technician will be happy to do it for you, it can be very expensive to have your car towed to somewhere to a shop.
Replace Windshield Wipers
Windshield wipers are essential. Driving with poor ones when it’s raining can be dangerous for you and others on the road. You can often have wipers replaced during basic service and repair, but it’s a good idea to know the basics yourself as well.
Respond to Warning Signs
Every driver should be familiar with the various warning lights that appear when there’s something wrong with a car. These range from oil change reminders to dangerous engine problems. It’s a good idea to read through your car manual to learn the meanings and the proper way to respond to each.
Check the Oil
Getting regular oil changes is imperative, but car owners should also know how to check oil between changes. This is especially good for individuals who travel often.
