New car parts can be a major investment. However, there are lots of steps you can take to help protect yours and increase their lifespan. These tips from our service experts at Lyon-Waugh Auto Group can help.

Complete Routine Maintenance

There’s no better way to protect your auto parts (and your car) than with routine maintenance. Your engine oil, for example, lubricates the moving parts of your engine.

Without it, the parts get so hot from the friction that they can begin to warp and become misshapen. As engine oil ages, however, it gets dirty and thickens, restricting its ability to move freely. This is why routine oil changes are crucial.

Rotate Your Tires

As you drive, each of your tires take on their own share of the brunt of the work. This can lead to your tires wearing unevenly. With uneven wear, they are prone to going flat, which can leave you replacing your tires sooner than necessary. Typically, we suggest that you rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles to help protect them.

Drive with Caution

It’s so important to drive carefully to protect your vehicle. Aggressive driving can leave you consistently accelerating and decelerating, which isn’t just harmful to your gas mileage. It can also cause your tires and brakes to wear prematurely.

Only Utilize OEM Parts for Replacements

Some vehicle parts simply aren’t meant to last forever. When you need an auto part replacement, it’s important to utilize OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts. Aftermarket parts aren’t built to last the way genuine OEM parts are, which are built by the same quality manufacturers that originally produced your vehicle.
