What’s the key to keeping your car running at its best? Be sure to follow the maintenance intervals outlined in your owner’s manual and make time to check for potential problems before they happen. It's that easy to start taking better care of your car today. 

When the time for necessary auto repairs arrives, remember to call an auto repair shop in Fort Myers that you can trust: AutoNation Toyota Scion Service and Tire Center Fort Myers. We'll take care of your vehicle like it was one of our own. 

Plus, in the meantime, you can put these car care tips to work. 

Keep your vehicle running at its best with our car care tips:

  • Change the oil on the same schedule as your suggested service intervals. Checking and changing your oil, as well as your oil filter, can ensure your engine is well-protected. Be sure to use the manufacturer’s recommended oil for your vehicle. 
  • Moving components require regular lubrication. Ask your mechanic to check your other components whenever you get your oil changed. Driveline components, like CV and u-joints for example, are flexible components that can break down and cause other major components to go with them when they aren't lubricated properly.
  • Check your transmission and differential fluid at service intervals. If you notice an odd noise, sluggish shifting, or abrupt gear changes, then you might be getting close (or have passed) your transmission service interval. Consult your owner’s manual for your manufacturer’s recommended transmission fluid type and viscosity.
  • Give TLC to your battery. Battery connections should be kept tight, clean, and free of corrosion. Make sure to have your shop test your battery periodically - you usually won't get any warning signs of a failing battery until it's too late. 
  • Brake fluid should be replaced once a year to keep calipers, hoses, and other components working at their best. Other important fluids to consider changing on a regular basis include power steering fluid and coolant. Each fluid has its own service interval, so be sure to check in your owner's manual to see when you should be getting your fluids flushed, checked, or replaced.
  • Keep your climate control systems working right with a complete flush and fill of the coolant system, as well as a refrigerant check. This can help with the removal of dirt and rust collected from the engine, radiator, and various hoses. 
  • Wheel alignments can realign your wheels to reduce tire wear, reduce stress on the suspension system of your vehicle, and even improve fuel efficiency. If you feel your vehicle drifting to one side, it is time for a wheel alignment.
  • Avoid stop-and-go driving. Not only does this cost you fuel, but it adds unnecessary wear and premature age to some of your most critical auto parts.

By taking time to follow these tips - and the care outlined in your owner's manual - you can reduce the risk of major repairs and unexpected failures. We all know how stressful it is to have a breakdown. Make sure your car is taken care of with a little extra TLC now. 

 Proper vehicle maintenance can save you time and money in the long run, not to mention, it'll improve your safety and the safety of your passengers. Plus, keep in mind that neglecting maintenance can void vehicle and parts warranties.
