Resolutions for Car Owners

The new year is here. It’s a time when many sit back and reflect on the accomplishments of the year ending and make plans for the year ahead. These resolutions can take on numerous forms, from silly to serious. But most of them have one thing in common- a goal to do better. If you own a vehicle, making resolutions regarding vehicle maintenance may seem a bit strange. However, if you want to get the most out of your ride, a few resolutions are a great place to begin.

8 Resolutions for Car Owners

Learn how to change a tire.


This is not just a job for AAA. If you drive, then you should be able to change a tire. Make learning the skill fun by getting a group of other tire-changing rookies plus someone who can teach you how. In no time at all, you can have a new skill!

Know how to inspect your tires.

Tire care is more than removing and replacing a lug nut. You should also know how much air pressure is correct for your vehicle’s tires, what the tread should look like, and how to identify any damage to your tires. Hmm…. this could be incorporated into that tire-changing party.

Can you jump-start your vehicle?

If the answer is no, then now is an excellent time to learn. Be sure your car has a set of jumper cables AND that you know how to use them. Being stranded on the side of the road or in a parking lot is no fun.

Frequently check the fluids in your car.

This doesn’t mean be sure you have an ample supply of coffee cups and water bottles! However, as your body needs liquids to work correctly, so does your car. Know how to check transmission fluid, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, wiper fluid, and engine oil. Then, be sure you know how to top off these items. Make It easy to top things off by keeping a supply readily available. You can order from local AMSOIL dealer, Cardey 4Ever Oil.

Take your vehicle in for maintenance.

Most cars need the oil and oil filter changed after 5,000 miles of driving. Don’t ignore this fundamental part of driving. Failing to keep clean oil in your vehicle affects how it drives. Dirty oil causes engine damage and can lead to other parts of your car wearing down more quickly.

Don’t ride the gas pedal so heavily!

Getting the most from your car is important, but you can achieve this without stressing the accelerator and engine. Instead, use AMSOIL Dominator Octane Boost to maximize power and improve ignition and responsiveness.

Put down your phone.

Distractions and driving can have disastrous results. Put down the phone. Leave the radio alone. Do your grooming before you leave. Anything that takes your concentration from the road is a distraction and dangerous.

Be courteous.

Road rage solves nothing and only causes unnecessary stress. Strive to be more patient with other drivers this year. Give yourself extra time to arrive at places so you don’t overreact when that person is driving 15 mph under the speed limit. Pay attention to the road and other drivers doing your part to keep driving stress to a minimum.
