With fuel prices where they are, it's no secret that all drivers are doing whatever they can to stretch out their miles per gallon. While your vehicle will likely never exceed the miles per gallon that it could achieve when it was new, it can get the same as new if your engine is in tip top shape. As you can see in the above picture, yours truly replaced the spark plugs in my Subaru recently, and found the spark plugs to be extremely worn out. They had more than double the gap that they should have had. Eeek! I never even realized that the engine was running rougher than usual, because it had happened over such a long period of time. Once the new spark plugs were installed, I instantly realized the smooth acceleration that I never knew that I had. When combined with an air filter, my Subaru was happier and smoother than ever before.
So, in an effort to stir up curiosity, I created a lucky list of 13 items that may be worth thinking about if you haven't in recent months. Some may help mileage, some might increase the life of the engine, and others just make you breath a little easier. Literally.
When was the last time you:
Changed your cabin air filter? It's likely covered in bugs. Yuck.
Rotated your tires? Maximize their life!
Checked your tire pressure? Low pressure is low mpg's!
Changed your oil? Keep that engine smooooth and sludge free!
Flushed your transmission fluid & changed the filter? Clean filters rule!
Changed your engine's air filter? Very easy and cheap!
Changed your spark plugs? See picture above!
Changed your timing belt? It's cheaper to do now than later.
Flushed your antifreeze? An easy DIY job!
Changed your brake fluid? Most recommend every 3 years! Eeek!
Checked for suspension & steering play. Pass Inspection!
Got an alignment? Make those tires last!
Checked the differential fluid? Often forgotten!
