6 DIY Car Maintenance Tricks to Save You Time and Money

Paying for auto repairs is often necessary, but it can be frustrating when you find out later that you could have done the work yourself for much less money–even if you’re not a mechanic. Here are six car maintenance tips you can perform on your car all by yourself:

1. Change Your Air Filter

A clogged air filter can cause all kinds of performance issues in your vehicle. It’s a simple item to change, easily accessed in most cars, and can cost you around $10.

2. Replace Your Spark Plugs

You’ll need a few tools for this–namely, a ratchet or socket wrench,  a 12″ socket extension, and a spark plug socket. Even so, you can save quite a bit of money doing this by yourself. Spark plugs, too, are usually easy to access and (with the right YouTube tutorial) easy to change out.

3. Windshield Wiper Exchange

There are few things scarier than trying to drive in the rain or snow with worn-out windshield wipers. The minute you start seeing streaking on your windshield, it’s time for a swap, for safety’s sake. This requires no tools and will take you maybe 15 minutes to complete.

4. Seatbelts and Seatbelt Retractors

We all know the significant safety upswing that comes from using a seatbelt while driving. But what about when the seat belt starts to wear out? As it turns out, most seat belts can be replaced with a screwdriver and, of course, a new belt.

5. Replacing Fuel Filters

This one might take a little bit more research to execute correctly, but that doesn’t mean it won’t save you time–and it will certainly save you money! Just be advised that this is a more advanced DIY repair, and pay special attention to warnings and the order of the steps involved.

6. Battery Exchange

Often, when your car won’t turn on, it’s because the battery is fried. If jump-starting your car won’t work, it may be time to replace the battery itself. The best way to prevent this somewhat hefty project, of course, is to keep your battery clean!

When To Call a Professional

Sometimes car repairs just can’t be done by a non-mechanic, and that’s okay. Auto repair shops exist for a reason. Been involved in a collision? Call today for a free quote. And be safe out there, drivers!
