In the owner's manual, pay particular attention to the schedule for oil changes. Oil changes are one of the most important aspects of Hyundai maintenance. But many people neglect this facet of vehicle care, leading to problems in engine performance. Fresh oil does more than just lubricate the engine and keep it running smoothly. It prevents a wide range of problems that can occur, from overheating to excessive wear and tear.
Your Hyundai likely has a tire pressure monitoring system
(TPMS). This system alerts you through a dash light when your tire is getting flat. But you still need to walk around your vehicle on a routine basis, visually checking tire condition before getting in your car to go. Tire maintenance is a huge facet of overall Hyundai maintenance and care.
As you check your tires before each drive, you should also check your lights. You should never wait until the dark of night to ensure they are properly working. A lot of things can go wrong with lighting systems, such as broken bulbs, blown-out bulbs and blown fuses. Make a habit of checking your headlights
, tail lights, turn signals and hazards.
According to Hyundai maintenance guidelines in your owner's manual, the automaker recommends you keep your vehicle fluids filled to their "max" line. Paying attention to these levels ensures your systems -- such as the HVAC, oil filters and brakes -- optimally work at all times. Not keeping up with this routine can leave you vulnerable to non-working parts.
If you are experience vehicle problems, never just assume the problem is what it seems at face value. In fact, the obvious assumption is often incorrect. If your Hyundai has an issue, schedule an appointment with Creech Import Repair for diagnostic service
