It's easy to take it for granted that your car will always work when you need it. Our hectic lifestyles and busy schedules leave us little room for our cars to break down unexpectedly on the roads of Orange Park and elsewhere. With regular maintenance, you can usually avoid an unpleasant surprise that leaves you stranded right when you need your car most.

While small, routine maintenance tasks seem innocuous enough to put off until you have the time or inclination, it's best to stay current with completing them. Not only will your service tasks pile up over time, but you might cause more damage the longer you put them off. Oil, air and fuel systems require clean filters in order to function properly on the streets of Jacksonville Beach and beyond. Your oil has a changing schedule suggested by your owner's manual that should also be followed rigorously.

There are easy fixes most owners can do themselves, such as switching out wiper blades, filling up the washer fluid and coolant, checking tire treads for wear, and cleaning the battery terminals. For trickier jobs, such as changing brake pads, spark plugs or oil, you may want to defer to a professional in the Riverside, FL area. It's a good idea to bring your car in regularly for an inspection that includes checking for wear to gaskets and belts.

Your timing belt will most likely need to be replaced every 100,000 miles or so on your Volkswagen.
