Auto maintenance describes the act of inspecting or testing the condition of car

subsystems (e.g., engine) and servicing or replacing parts and fluids. Regular

maintenance is critical to ensure the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort and

longevity of a car. During preventive maintenance, a number of parts are replaced

to avoid major damage or for safety reasons, e.g. timing belt replacement. The

actual schedule of car maintenance varies depending on the year, make, and

model of a car, its driving conditions and driver behavior. Car makers recommend

the so-called extreme or the ideal service schedule based on impact parameters

such as:

* Number of trips and distance traveled per trip per day

* Extreme hot or cold climate conditions

* Mountainous, dusty or de-iced roads

* Heavy stop-and-go vs. long-distance cruising

* Towing a trailer or other heavy load

* Experienced service advisors in dealerships

and independent shops recommend schedule intervals, which are often in between

the ideal or extreme service schedule. They base it on the driving conditions and

behavior of the car owner or driver. Common car maintenance tasks include:

* Car wash

* Check/replace the engine oil and replace oil filters

* Check/replace fuel filters

* Inspect or replace windshield wipers

* Check or refill windshield washer fluid

* Inspect tires for pressure and wear

* Tire balancing

* Tire rotation

* Wheel alignment

Some tasks that have equivalent service intervals are combined into one single service

known as a tune-up. In modern cars, where electronics control most of the car’s

functions, the traditional tune-up doesn’t apply anymore. Maintenance jobs like a tune-

up used to mean getting the engine’s performance back on track. Today embedded

software takes care of it by constantly checking thousands of sensor signals,

compensating for worn-out spark plugs, clogged filters, etc. The so-called limp-home

function allows driving on limited power when the engine is in trouble. In the old days

this might have meant a breakdown. In some countries, the completed services are

recorded in a service book which is rubber-stamped by the service center upon

completion of each service. A complete service history usually adds to the resale value

of a vehicle.
