When a car's windows are down, it can cause the gas mileage to be reduced.

Checking the condition of your windshield wiper blades regularly can help to ensure that they will function properly.


If corrosion should build up on the battery terminals, this could lead to a loss of power.


Keep your radiator in top condition by performing routine maintenance. Flush it periodically and add new fluids. Also, replace belts and hoses according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.


The best way to help avoid accidents when you’re driving is to practice defensive driving techniques. Keep all of your attention on the road while at the wheel. Pay attention to those around you so you can predict their actions and be prepared for the unexpected.


When cleaning different car surfaces, be sure to choose an appropriate cleaning product for the material.


The amount of time that a car battery will last can depend on many factors.


If your vehicle should need a jump-start, it is important to keep safety in mind. If you do not feel comfortable jump-starting the vehicle yourself, it is recommended that you contact a roadside assistance service.


If you notice one section of the engine is dirtier than another, it may be that the oil filter is clogged. It needs to be replaced, along with having the oil changed as well.


If your car's windshield wipers are not cleaning your windshield properly, you may simply need to clean the wiper blades.


If you are planning to not use your vehicle for an extended period of time, it is recommended that you make plans for someone to drive it monthly at a minimum.


When a vehicle's tires are underinflated, this can lead to a reduction in gas mileage for the vehicle.


As a driver, it’s important that you are prepared for all and any emergency. An emergency road kit should be carried at all times and should include a flashlight, road flares, first aid kit, blanket, water, road atlas, and warm clothes (as needed in the winter season).


The EVAP system (evaporative control system) captures fuel evaporating from the fuel tank and fuel lines and returns it to the engine for more complete combustion. If the engine is idling roughly and the Check Engine light is on, the canister purge valve in the EVAP system may be faulty.


Keep in mind that air bag systems are meant to be supplemental to seat belt restraint systems. Air bags are meant only to cushion the contact between a driver and the steering wheel and/or dashboard and not to restrain the passenger in the front seat.


How many miles do you hope to get out of your car? Today's vehicles, with proper maintenance and quick repair of problems as soon as they arise, can go for several hundred thousand miles.


If you are ever in a car accident with another car, it’s important that you exchange vital information before leaving the accident site. Write down the name, address, phone number, insurance information, and license numbers for all drivers involved in the accident, and also collect information from any witnesses.


To help extend the life of your brakes, give them a good spraying when you wash your car to remove the accumulated dust and dirt that can cause the pads to wear down.


Operating a vehicle with one tire that’s under-inflated by 6 lbs. per square inch can reduce the life of the tire and increase fuel consumption by 3%. It can also reduce your handling, so keeping your tires at the right pressure also keeps you safe.


If you see oil on the ground beneath the rear axle of your car, have it checked out immediately. It indicates a problem with one of the seals and creates dangerous driving conditions.


Misaligned wheels will make your tires drag instead of rolling smoothly. The result is increased wear, reduced fuel efficiency, and poor handling. Make sure that you get your alignment checked once a year to keep your car running as smoothly as possible.


When putting oil into the engine, use the correct viscosity for the time of year and for your climate. Also, visually check the oil on the dipstick to prevent problems—if it's dirty or gummy, bring your car in.


If your car failed an emissions test, it could be the exhaust system's air pump. Its job is to send fresh air through the exhaust system to help complete the combustion of exhaust gases.


One of the easiest and most effective things you can do to improve driver safety on the road is to avoid driving distracted. This means putting down the cell phone, food, hairbrush, and makeup, and avoid messing with the radio or heater while driving.


Sludge in the crankcase is a problem. Its causes can include not changing the oil at recommended intervals, using the wrong grade of oil, a broken PCV valve, or piston ring damage, among others.


When brake linings are wearing out unusually fast, it's because of a leaking brake hose or the brake calipers are sticking, creating brake drag. We'll diagnose and repair the problem.


If your car breaks down, never get out of the vehicle to make a repair or examine the damage on a busy highway. If possible, get the vehicle to a safe place before getting out, and make sure that you and the vehicle are clearly visible to other drivers.


Brake and power steering fluid levels should be monitored. Because these systems should not lose fluid, any drop may indicate a problem somewhere along the lines. The cause needs to be diagnosed and repaired.


In order to protect yourself against neck injury in the event of a car accident, it’s important to properly adjust your head restraint. In the optimal position, the top of the head restraint should be as high as the top of your head and no lower than 2.5 inches below the top of your head.


Steering that is loose or that has a lot of play in it is a safety issue and needs to be checked at the earliest possible time. It could be caused by any of a number of issues with the steering components.


When accelerating in a car with a standard transmission and the clutch slips, the issue could be with clutch disc springs, surface contamination on the pressure plate, or broken or missing parts.


While using your cell phone when driving is always discouraged, if you have a situation where it’s necessary, it’s recommended that you use a hands-free device. This can be either an installed mounted device for your cell phone or a speaker phone accessory.


Improving gas mileage is quite simple: maintain your car according to the owner's manual, use only the recommended fuel, maintain proper tire pressure, and avoid quick starts and stops.


Be very cautious if you are driving a car that was recently involved in a collision. Aside from being potentially extremely dangerous for you and the other drivers on the road, your insurance company isn’t liable for any further damages.

It’s important that you have the proper emergency tools in your car in case of a flat tire, accident, breakdown, or other roadside emergency. This should include a spare tire, jack, scissors, owner’s manual, tool box, flares, fuses, sealant for small leaks in tires, empty gas can, and can of motor oil.


Don't ignore warning lights when they come on. Your car is a piece of precision machinery and the lights are not a suggestion – they're an imperative. Have the problem checked and taken care of immediately.


Every year, there are about 6 million car accidents in the United States. The average repair time for vehicles is about four days. Make sure that you ask about a warranty on the repairs from the shop that you chose.


One of the safest things you can do while driving is to avoid distractions. Talking or texting on a cell phone is a common distraction, but it’s not the only one. Eating, applying makeup, or devices like the radio can also distract you from operating your car.
