The Why’s and When’s of Car Maintenance
Folks keep bringing up the same topic with me: maintenance.
Have you ever looked at your car and thought, “WHEN do I need to do ______?”
Ever in the shop and wonder, “WHY do I need to replace _____________?
This class will answer all your questions about car maintenance.
You will receive an overview of car maintenance, so you’ll know when to perform specific car maintenance tasks and just as importantly, why you need to do it. We’ll talk about changing fluids, filters, rotating tires, etc.
I’ll delve into explaining everything from how of often you need to change you oil to what power steering fluid even does in you car and why it has to be changed.
Y’all everything will be explained in a way you can understand: not in mechanic talk!
We will cover the topics below on the following days.
(+ time for Q and A)
Monday, July 30th:
Oil changes – how often, what type of oil
Coolant – why and how often
Power steering fluid – why and how often
Filter (Cabin, Air, Gas) – What they do and when they need to be changed
Tuesday, July 31st:
Transmission Fluid – Why is needs to be changed and how often
Drive Belts – what the belt does and how often should be changed
Tires – how often to rotate, tire pressure, when they need to be changed
Alignments – What is it, how often, what are the benefits
Wednesday, August 1st:
Timing Belts – What this belt does, and how often is needs to be changed
Engine Flushes – Should you actually do this? How often?
Fuel System Cleanings – What these do and how often
Fuel Additives – Should I buy, what brand?
Air Conditioning recharges – What does this even do? How often?
While we won’t be getting into the DIY aspect of car maintenance, I will provide you with some great YouTube resources that show you how to do things like replace bulbs and change your oil.
