Taking care of an older model car can take a bit more work and proactivity, but it's not impossible. To take the best care of your car, use these tips from AMSOIL Dealer- Carol Bell in Austin.



Take Proper Care of Your Older Model Car

When you've had a car for many years, it may no longer drive as smoothly as it did when it was new. There's no reason for alarm since this can happen with the wear and tear caused by using it. You will need to take proper care of it to ensure it lasts even longer. To do this, check out these maintenance tips.

Maintain your engine in great shape with a synthetic oil change in Austin. To find the perfect oil for your car, contact AMSOIL Dealer-Carol Bell at (512) 658-0357. You can also browse their online shop for the best products.

Replace the Fuel Line

One of the most important items you will have to keep an eye on is your car's fuel line. Over time, this part can get worn out and develop cracks. These can lead to leaks, which are only bad news. Since fuel is super flammable, a leak can actually lead to huge issues, including a fire. Because of this, you definitely want to check on your fuel line and replace it when needed. Look at your manufacturer's recommendations to get the most accurate information for your car.

Take Care of the Cooling System

On a newer car, staying on top of the coolant is a must, but this is even more important on older model cars. Not only will you need to top off your coolant when it's running low and change it when it's gone bad, but you will also have to inspect other aspects of the cooling system. Be sure to inspect the hoses and bands every so often so that you're sure these aren't drying out and developing cracks. Since cracks can lead to leaks in the hoses, this is super important. Be sure to also check on the fans and other components so you're sure everything is working smoothly.

Don't Forget Your Oil Changes

To extend the life of your engine, never miss an oil change! This may sound basic, but regular oil changes can ensure your engine is well protected and working at its best. For older cars, this is essential if you want your engine to keep going. Get to know how to check your oil so that you can stay on top of its condition. This is also a great way to know exactly when it's time for your next oil change. Remember to also have your oil filter replaced with every oil change for maximum benefits.

Maintain the Brakes System

Your car's brakes need to stay in great shape to keep you safe. While this is important on newer cars as well, it may not be such a big concern when your car is quite new. As your car gets older, this is something you should check on more regularly. You don't want to wait until your brakes are squeaky to check on the brake pads since there may already be damage done. Make a habit of checking the brake pads and the brake fluid regularly so that you can get these maintained before you run into an issue.

Clean the Exterior

As your car gets older, you may notice that it's looking a little more worn. To keep it looking nice and fresh, be sure to wash it regularly. This may be basic, but it'll get rid of corrosive substances that will wear down your paint job. After washing it, be sure to wax it to give a protective covering against the elements. It's important that you also keep your car out of the sun as much as you can since the sun can be corrosive and damaging to plastic parts. The sun can also damage interior parts, so park your car in a garage or use a car cover.
