Your Car Won’t Start

March 23, 2017

Fumbling with your keys, you run to your car thinking about trying to be on time to work. You insert the key, turn it, and nothing happens. Your car won’t start. What can the problem be? The gas gauge reads full! Frustrated, you call a cab.

The average age of the nearly 253 million cars on the road in the U.S. is 11.3 years. Everyone expects their car to start as long as it has fuel and an oil change. However, for years of excellent service, you must take care of your car. Your car is just one of the approximately 253 million on the road today in the United States.

With a little more care and a few simple tricks, you can guarantee your car will start. These tricks also offer a longer life for your vehicle.

Oil Change
Check your vehicle maintenance manual. It provides a recommendation for oil change intervals and types of oil. Time between oil changes does depend on driving conditions. Ask a trusted mechanic about that.

Electrical System
Regularly check the connections and wiring conditions on your car. Look for places water may seep into a wire. If you notice any problems, then have your vehicle’s electrical system checked.

Air System
The air filter provides the first and last line of defense for keeping grit and foreign particles out of your engine. Check your air filter every time you have an oil change. Change it every two years, depending upon your driving conditions.
