Your engine is made from components that are constantly moving and grinding. That’s why it is important to keep it smooth with engine oil. To ensure you have enough oil for your engine, you can check the dipstick. When your engine is cool, pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean and place it back in. When you pull it out again, there should be an indication of how much oil your engine has. If it isn’t enough, just add oil to the required levels and your engine should be back to being as smooth as it can be.

3. Keep The Belts Running
Open up the hood of your car and you’ll see a lot of rubber belts running along the engine. One of the key things to maintaining a great engine is making sure there are no splits or cracks in the belts. That way, your engine will be able to continue running the way it should.

Engines are the heart and soul of your car. Take care of your engine, and you’ll have a dependable car who won’t leave you alone.
