The most basic maintenance that you need to perform is cleaning. Not just the outside of your vehicle, but the inside should be kept clean. Keeping your equipment clean performs two essential things: it helps the machinery to work better because there’s no dirt and rust, and it gives you the opportunity to check your car’s motor and inner parts to make sure nothing’s broken. Other than keeping everything clean, you also need to regularly change your fluids - don’t put an oil change off, for example. Consult your car’s handbook for more information on what your regular schedule should look like. Pull those auto hand tools out of your tool kit, perform regular maintenance, and you’ll keep your vehicle clean and in good shape if you stay diligent!
