Things you should know about your car’s preventive maintenance By Arun Kumar

A car’s preventive maintenance is one the most important aspects any responsible driver should take into account. With a regular preventive maintenance you’ll save money, increase fuel efficiency, the lifespan of your vehicle and most importantly it’ll keep you and your passengers safe. It’s a commitment that every car owner should do frequently.

Nonetheless, even if a car owner has its car checked in an auto repair in Edmonton, or simply doesn’t want to do the regular checks by themselves; there are still some basic actions that every driver should know.

Check the Engine Oil

The motor oil is one of the most important elements to check in your engine. The oil must be clean and not muddy and it should be changed anywhere from 3,000 miles to 10,000 as stated in the owner’s manual.

Cooling System

The coolant fluid level must be checked ideally on a daily basis and the antifreeze used

must be the one indicated in the owner’s manual. If the car is losing fluid constantly the leakage must be found as quickly as possible to avoid overheating.


Typically a battery can last between two to three years. It’s recommended to check the charge level every three months and clean the terminals if corrosion exists; these services can be provided by instaMek’s auto repair in Edmonton.

Brakes & Suspension Systems

It’s one of the most important systems in your vehicle and must be constantly checked. If you feel your brake pedal is soft or is hard to press, it squeals or you feel every bump in the road, you should get a professional to check your vehicle.


To avoid excessive wear on your tires, the air pressure in the tires must be checked monthly and it should match or be close to the levels set by the manufacturer in the owner’s manual.

Regular maintenance to your car is a must, but it’s not always convenient to do it all by yourself. As your car’s mileage goes up, it’s necessary that it is thoroughly inspected by a professional.

Traditional auto repair services in Edmonton can’t offer all the benefits instaMek can give you. Book a service package with us, and let us handle all the preventive and corrective services your car may need, whether you are at home, on the road or at work, contact us now!
