Importance of Maintaining Your Honda Even If You Are Driving Less in O’Fallon, IL

If things have changed and you are not driving as much, you still need to take care of your vehicle. Ignoring your vehicle’s maintenance for too long could mean problems when you start using it more often again. Fortunately, Serra Honda of O’Fallon is available to help you maintain your car or truck and suggest services for your less-used vehicle. Here are some things you should do for your vehicle when you use it less often.

Proper Care and Service for Your Honda

Even when you’re not driving, your Honda still needs regular care. For example, you should still be caring for its exterior. Keep up with your vehicle’s washing and waxing schedule. If you park your vehicle outside, invest in a good cover. You should also check over your belts, hoses, and battery frequently, especially before you drive your vehicle again. Keep an eye on your tire pressure as well. Also, make sure your gas tank remains mostly full to reduce condensation and rust that could cause problems later.

Routine Oil Changes for Your Honda

While many vehicle services are primarily based on mileage, some should be done on a time-based schedule if you’re not driving much. For example, you should continue changing your engine oil even if you’re not close to the recommended mileage. Many vehicles have an “either/or” schedule. For example, you may need to change your synthetic oil every 6,000 miles or every 6 months, whichever comes first. At the bare minimum, have your oil changed at least twice a year.

Reasons to Drive Your Honda During Idle Periods

You should be driving your Honda at least once every two weeks at a minimum. Once a week is better. Make sure the engine runs long enough to fully warm up it up. Driving your car during an idle period has the following benefits:

  • It reduces flat spots on the tires caused by sitting in one place too long.
  • It helps your battery stay charged.
  • It keeps your engine’s parts lubricated.
  • It reduces rust on brakes and other moving parts.
