There are things you should and should not be doing when it comes to car maintenance. Get off track and you could find your self making one mistake after the next. This could not only alter the condition of your vehicle, but it could also do some damage to your bank account.
Here are three common car maintenance mistakes to avoid at all costs:
1. NEGLECTING CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS
Unfortunately if you fall within that description, your vehicle will soon suffer damage. It may not happen immediately, but the check engine light always goes on for a reason. The check engine light is a warning light, alerting you that something is wrong with your vehicle. Something may not necessarily be broken, but that small issue could turn into a much larger problem if neglected for too long. Whenever the warning light comes on, bring in your vehicle to Texas Auto and our ASE certified master technicians will diagnose the problem and correct it and get you back on the road. Our team utilizes the latest technology in auto repair to perform repairs to your automobile and correctly read the error codes behind your check engine light.
Experts agree that keeping the correct air pressure in your tires is as important as giving your engine a tune-up. In fact, the economic benefits may be even greater. With the right amount of air pressure, your tires wear longer, save fuel, enhance handling, and prevent accidents. Failure to maintain the correct air pressure can result in poor gas mileage, reduce tire life, affect vehicle handling, and cause vehicle overloading. If you consider these factors, then the need to routinely check your tire pressure is even clearer. At Texas Auto we automatically do this on every service, so come see us today!
Ignoring simple preventative maintenance, like changing oil and filters or failing to make minor car repairs today, could mean thousands of dollars in auto repair bills tomorrow. For instance, neglecting to change the oil and filter periodically will increase contaminants and shorten the engine life. In the worst case scenario, it could mean an engine replacement. Let Texas Auto keep you on track and keep your vehicle operating smoothly, efficiently, and reliably.
