Car care is extremely important if you want your Toyota to run efficiently for an extended period of time. If you take care of your Toyota you will not only increase its efficiency but will also stop its value from depreciating. There are ten key steps that you need to follow if you wish to maintain your Toyota's value for many years to come.

Ten steps of Car care

In order to ensure that your Toyota car runs efficiently and remains safe, here are the ten key steps you need to follow.

Step #1

The first step of car care is reading the manual that comes with the car. It is your first step to knowing the car and becoming a maintenance savvy car owner.

Step #2

The second step is changing your engine oil. You need to change your engine oil and filter regularly. Your engine oil is the most vital fluid for your vehicle to operate. You should have it changed every three months or every three thousand miles.

Step #3

Make sure you always use the type of gasoline that has been recommended for your vehicle. In case you're not sure, check inside the tank before you fill it up.

Step #4

Have a service facility check your battery once a year. Keep your battery case clean with a wet washcloth.

Step #5

To keep your engine running smoothly, conduct a basic belt inspection once a month. Now all you have to do is look at your belt for any signs of wear, if you notice any problems contact your local service station to have them replaced.

Step #6

Do not ignore brake noises. If you hear something funny, have your brakes checked. If you do not hear any such things get them inspected at least every six thousand miles.

Step #7

Make sure you keep a close eye on tire inflation. Regularly check the tire pressure. Make sure to rotate your tire every six thousand miles or on every other oil change.

Step #8

Change your air filter once a year or every twelve thousand miles. Now if you live in an area with a lot of dirt and dust you might need to change it more frequently. Changing your air filter can also help you save money.

Step #9

Have a service technician check your engine every thirty thousand miles. This will ensure that everything's working properly and everything's working together.

Step #10

Finally, it's important that you maintain your engine's coolant system. Make sure that you're engine coolant level is at least one inch from the radiator filter neck. Have your coolant system flushed out or re-filled at forty thousand to a hundred thousand miles.
