DIY Car Maintenance Schedule

In between your maintenance visits at Major World Chevrolet, you can also take matters into your own hands with DIY checks. Quick and easy tasks, like checking your fluids and cleaning the cabin, can help you keep your car in fantastic condition all year long. Here are some of the recommended services to tackle every month at your convenience:

  • Check to see if the check engine light is on.
  • Clean the interior and exterior.
  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work.
  • Check tire pressure and tread.
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled.

Why Follow a Car Maintenance Schedule?

Many drivers in Bayside and Forest Hills let their maintenance slide when life gets busy, so what’s the point of maintenance anyway? Maintenance is a great opportunity to get your car inspected by a certified professional. That means that even if you miss something small under the hood, your technician will be able to spot it and fix it before it becomes a larger – and more expensive – problem.

In addition, your DIY monthly maintenance allows you to keep an eye on the basics. If you notice something like a tire puncture or battery corrosion, you can schedule an emergency service right away. Otherwise, you might be caught off-guard by a flat tire or a dead engine on a busy morning.
