Barillaro Collision

Periodic Checklist for Concerned Car Owners

Spray GunEngine - Follow the manufacturer's recommendations on oil and filter changes. However, a good rule of thumb is every 3,000 to 4,000 miles. Engine oil, transmission fluid and fuel are three systems that have filters that need to be replaced on a periodic basis. If your car is not running properly, you should take it in to be checked out. The same goes for engine tune-ups.

Tire Inflation - Underinflated tires can lead to increased fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Also, studies indicate that underinflated tires can create safety hazards which result in accidents. Check tire inflation once a month.

Tire Rotation - Have your tires rotated and balanced at least every 10,000 miles.

Windshield Wipers - These should be changed once a year.

Car Battery - Your car battery should be checked monthly in the winter, weekly in hot weather and daily on long trips.

Batteries - You should check the battery fluid level monthly in the winter, weekly in hot weather and daily on long trips.  Also, be sure to regularly check a battery if the battery is more than two years old.

Drive Belt - Periodically check the tension on drive belts. They should not give more than a half an inch.

Moving Parts - All moving parts such as door hinges, door latches and hood hinges should be lubricated periodically.

Air Conditioner - Run your air conditioner monthly to keep the compressor seal lubricated and in proper running order.
