Did you know there are DIY ways you can improve your car’s performance? Whether you are trying to make your car faster, run smoother, or make it last longer, there is always room for improvement!
- Replace Old Air Filter and Spark Plugs
Your air filter cleans the debris out of the air that goes into your engine. If you have a dirty air filter you end up choking the engine, resulting in a loss of performance.
If you have old spark plugs you risk wasting fuel and impacting your gas mileage. Your car will not run as smooth and it can affect your car’s overall performance.
Aim to replace your spark plugs every 30,000 miles. Replacing these should take you no longer than 60 minutes.
- Battery Maintenance
By keeping cleaning your battery regularly, you can actually increase the lifespan of your battery. You can do this by using baking water, baking soda and a little elbow grease.
- Maintain Tire Pressure
You would be surprised to find out how much low tire pressure impacts handling and fuel economy. Try keeping a pressure gauge in your car so you can check your pressure levels every time you get gas.
By handling these simple maintenance tasks, you not only keep your vehicle in better shape for longer, but also saves you money!
