Madison drivers can save money and avoid expensive auto repairs with a regular car care maintenance schedule.
When drivers think about extending the life of their car or truck, they often think of oil changes. They’re right. Regularly changing the oil is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your vehicle lasts and to avoid major repairs. But there are a couple of other things that carsdirect.com says are almost as important to avoid expensive car repairs and to make sure your vehicle lasts a long, long time: Maintain your transmission and change the air filter.
Changing the air filter will make sure no dirt or contaminants get into your car’s engine. As for the transmission, it’s one of the most important of the many important engine parts.
“A damaged a faulty transmission can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to repair or replace,” carsdirect says. Many transmission problems are caused by low or dirty transmission fluid, so you should have it checked often.
If you trust your car or truck to the auto mechanics at Terry’s Car Care in Madison, you won’t have to worry about any of those items.
