CB_Back-to-School Car Maintenance _0817.V2

Going back to college this month? Make sure your car is in tip-top shape with our back-to-school car maintenance tips!

First, take care of your basic car maintenance. Make sure that your tires have been rotated, your oil has been recently changed, check your fluid levels, and replace old windshield wipers.

In addition, every car has a recommended maintenance schedule. Be sure to check your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer recommendations. This maintenance typically requires checking or replacing parts like timing belts or spark plugs. If your vehicle is older, other major parts may be recommended for replacement in order to keep your car running safely and smoothly.

If your vehicle consistently has a warning light on, be sure to get that checked out. The last thing you’d want is for something bad to happen or for it to lead to a costly repair later down the line.

Finally, stay prepared! Make sure your car has basic safety needs, including a flashlight, jumper cables, an ice scraper, gloves, bottled water, or even a pre-packaged auto safety kit.

Let Clint Bowyer Autoplex in Emporia, Kansas help with your back-to-school car maintenance! Contact us and see our service specials here.
