5 DIY Auto Care Tips:Brakes: Clean brake dust regularly with a damp sponge and clean, cold water
Oil Level: Check this after your engine has cooled by locating the dipstick. Pull it out, wipe it clean, put it back in fully, wait a moment, pull it out, and check the reading. (Checking your coolant level is also a good idea).
Tires: Check tire pressure for optimal inflation each week. Incorrect pressure can negatively affect fuel economy in a big way.
Engine: Check belts often. These are located at the front of your engine. The accessory drive belt and timing belt should be checked every 25,000 miles and replaced around every 50,000 miles.
