2. Change Your Oil

Oil is your car’s blood – As with humans, if there’s not enough, a horrible death could result. Unlike humans, however, your car needs it’s blood changed every 3,000 – 7,000 miles: check your owner’s manual.

Checking to see if you have enough oil takes less than a minute: park on a level surface, warm up the engine, shut it off, then open the hood and look for the dipstick – it’s sticking out, and often has an oil can symbol on it. Pull it out, wipe it off (you brought a paper towel, right?) and make sure you have enough – there are marks that tell you. And while you’re at it, see how dirty it looks. If it’s black, go to an oil change place. They’re everywhere, and they’re cheap.

If you’re ever driving down the road and your oil light comes on, stop your car. Not sometime soon; not at the next exit: now. Otherwise, plan on engine-shopping.
