AUTOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE TIPS - AUTOCENTERS NISSAN - WOOD RIVER, IL

If you want your vehicle to last a long time, looking great and running smoothly, then you must take proper care of it. It can seem like a challenge, but it doesn't have to be.

 

There are simple steps you can take to ensure that your car stays in fantastic condition, and they're easier than you think!

 

·         Keep your tires inflated properly. Underinflated tires can reduce your gas mileage and cause uneven tire wear, while overinflated tires run the risk of tire failure. The staff at your Nissan service department can help you with determining the pressure level that's right for your vehicle.

·         Change your oil regularly. Oil is crucial to your engine, and it's important to change it as often as your owner's manual recommends! Come into the AutoCenters Nissan service center for an oil change roughly every 3,000 miles or every three to six months.

·         Keep an eye on your other fluids. Oil isn't the only fluid that's important to your engine?transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid and more are all necessary. The Nissan service staff at AutoCenters Nissan can check these fluids for you and change them if necessary.

·         Change your air filter. A clean air filter is much better for your engine, and can improve your gas mileage, so come into our Nissan service center to have it changed about every year or every 12,000 miles.

·         Drive carefully! Much of the damage inflicted on vehicles comes because the driver wasn't careful. Drive the speed limit and keep your eyes on the road to avoid accidents and damage.
