Engine Efficiency in Late Model Vehicles
A well-maintained vehicle means the engine efficiency can run for miles and miles, even into the six-digits. How can you maximize your engine’s lifespan, performance, and efficiency?
Optimize your vehicle by putting in regular maintenance and inspections, such as:
- Oil changes. These are essential, if you want great engine performance.
- Air filters should be changed at least once a year.
- Replace any spark plugs when your manufacturer recommendations.
- Proper tire pressure. This keeps you safe, helps your tires last, and saves you money on gas.
- Alignment check — improves engine efficiency and keeps you rolling in the right direction.
- Watch for warning lights in the dash. If a check engine light comes on, come in today!
- Get regular brake and fluid checks.
Another key part in helping your engine last is avoiding bad driving habits:
- Don’t drive your tank on low fuel or wait until it’s empty to fill up.
- Don’t rev your engine unnecessarily while in neutral or park.
- Don’t accelerate hard if the engine is still cold and hasn’t warmed up to normal operating temperatures.
You will be rewarded with great engine performance when you care for your vehicle as a whole and get regular maintenance — your car will return your efforts with longevity, better driveability, and increased fuel efficiency!
