Are you like some drivers whose service manual has never seen the light of day? Even with a busy schedule, it’s important to keep up with the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance items. With winter’s cold temperatures here to stay for a while, you want to make sure your car is in tip-top shape. But you may be wondering just how often should you service your car?

As you read through your owner’s manual (you may find it at the back of your glove box), you will see maintenance guidelines. It may look similar to the schedule below:

  • Change the oil and filter about every 3,000 to 7,000 Miles. This mileage interval will vary depending on the type of vehicle you have and the type of oil it requires. At the same time, your mechanic should check the transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid, and wipers, tires, and lights.
  • The air filter should be replaced about every 15,000 miles.
  • Check the battery charge and terminals frequently. If your battery is more than three or four years old and it’s starting to die, you may want to replace it.
  • The fuel filter should be replaced about every 25,000 miles.
  • About every 30,000 miles, replace the air filter and power steering fluid. Inspect the radiator and hoses, coolant, air conditioning, brakes, and suspension system to make sure everything is in good condition.
  • The ignition and suspension systems may need some type of car repairs, such as replacing spark plugs and wires, about every 40,000 miles.
  • Brake pads, rotors, and brake fluid, radiator hoses, coolant, power steering fluid, and timing belt may need to be replaced at about every 60,000 miles.

Regardless of whether you are experiencing any car problems, taking good care of your vehicle will pay off in the long run by preventing a costly car repair and by giving you a reliable vehicle.

Remember to keep a record of all the maintenance and car repair items as a reminder as to when the next service should be performed. This service history will also help with insurance and resale purposes.
