Change your air filter.
Every 15,000 to 30,000 miles, your engine’s air filter should be replaced. This is one of the most forgotten parts of the spring car maintenance checklist. It’s super important though because the screen is responsible for clearing your vehicle’s engine of dirt and other debris. Failing to replace the filter can cause restricted air flow to the motor and cause it to use more oil. Thankfully, this isn’t an expensive fix. Changing your air filter usually costs less than 100 dollars in parts and labor.
Fix any dents or paint damage.
This last point on the maintenance checklist isn’t part of regular upkeep, but it is an especially necessary part of car care. Many people ignore small dings and chips, thinking that surface issues aren’t a big deal. However, chipped paint can lead to rust and other more severe problems that can affect the frame and more. Having dents pulled out, and professional paint repair is an investment that will not only make your car look better but also add to the future resale value of your vehicle.
