- Step 1: Consider lubrication Don't have your car lubed unless your owner's manual recommends it. Most newer cars do not require chassis lubrication.
- Step 2: Consider engine coolant Forget about flushing your radiator every spring and fall. Modern engine coolants can last two years or more before they lose effectiveness.
- Step 3: Consider tune-ups Don't assume your car needs regular tune-ups. Computer-controlled engines do not require tune-ups.
- TIP: Don't worry about replacing your spark plugs at regular intervals. Newer cars can go 100,000 miles before a spark plug change is needed.
- Step 4: Consider servicing Don't assume you have to have your car serviced by the dealer to keep your warranty in force. You can have the service done anywhere.
- FACT: The first automobiles ran on steam engines that had boilers to heat water.
