2. Oil Change / Via

Make sure you read your owners manual. Most manufacturers suggest you change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles. The main advocates of changing your oil every 3,000 miles are those who profit from it.

4. Fluids / Via

The 5 fluids you should be checking.

# Transmission Fluid: Check every month.

# Coolant: Check twice a year and keep an eye on it in-between.

# Brake Fluid: Check when you change your oil.

# Power Steering Fluid: Check once a month.

# Windshield Washer Fluid: Fill when low or before long trips.

9. Air Filter / Via

If you drive in harsh conditions where there is a lot of dust and mud, you should change your air filter every 15,000 miles. However, for most drivers, every 30,000 miles is best.
