Change your oil and oil filter often.
Regular oil changes extend the life of your engine. Not changing the oil causes a lot of problems with the engine over time. Make sure you note the date and mileage after each oil change, so you know when your vehicle is due for another one.

 Replace your transmission fluid and differential oil.
Check your vehicle’s manual for the suggested timeframes for changing your transmission fluid and differential oil. Also, add new coolant. Once in a while, it makes sense to flush out your coolant and add fresh coolant. Your car’s manual should suggest the intervals when it’s best to add new coolant.
