Owning a car has its benefits. Many people get their auto maintenance with respect to the time, but experts believe that you should get your car tune ups by the amount of mileage it covers. Here is a little guide to help you get started. Following it will ensure better performance and maximum output by your vehicle. If you take care of it, it will take care of you.

After every 3,000 miles: Check up all the car fluids and oils and tire pressure. Top up anything that falls short or is low.

After every 6,000 miles: Check your air filter. Get your tires balanced and re-aligned to avoid any sort of accident. Apply a new coat of paint to protect the exterior of your car. Check for all the lights and replace anything that’s not working. This also includes your windshield wipers.

After every 30,000 miles: It is time for a serious check-up now. Get your suspension inspected. Replace the fuel filter to avoid any fuel choke ups. Have the cooling system of the car cleaned up. If there are any faults in belts or hoses, get them replaced. Get your air conditioning system tested. If the tires have exceeded their life, get them replaced. Replenish your steering fluid to keep steering smooth and light.

After 60,000 miles: Repeat everything that you did after 30,000 miles. Have your transmission filter replaced and drain the transmission fluid. Fill it up with new one again. Consult your mechanic regarding the needs and maintenance of automatic and manual transmission vehicles. The more you know about your ride, the better you can keep it.

After 100,000 miles: Congratulations if you have kept your car in perfect shape after such an impressive mileage! If you plan to keep it, it’s best to go through all the services mentioned above and replace the spark plug and spark wirings for a better performance.
