How to Take Care of Older Vehicles

As your car gets older, you may start to worry about its performance more and more. You can do plenty of things to ensure it stays in great shape for a long time. To keep your car driving strong, use these essential tips.

Replace the Fuel Line When Necessary

As your car ages, certain parts of it will need more attention than others. While it's true that you will have to keep up with maintenance for all areas of your car, the fuel line is definitely one to keep a close eye on. Over time, this part will age and potentially start to crack. When this happens, it can lead to leaks, which can be very dangerous. If you think you can ignore this for a while, think again. These sorts of leaks are much more dangerous than an oil leak or a coolant leak because your fuel is very flammable. As soon as you notice your fuel line is starting to crack, get it replaced.

Keep the Cooling System Working Properly

You may be accustomed to checking your car's cooling system, but you may need to take this process one step further on an older model car. Get in the habit of checking your coolant, top it off when it's low, and change it once it's come to the end of its life. On top of this, your older car will need you to look out for leaks, check the hoses for cracks, inspect the fans, and keep up with the entire system as a whole. This will reduce the potential for damage to your engine.

Change Your Oil on a Regular Schedule

One of the best things you can do to keep your engine in great shape is to get regular oil changes. Learn to check on your oil and do this often, so you never end up driving around on old oil that needs to be replaced. Ensuring your oil is always in good shape, you will keep your engine better protected, reduce friction, keep temperatures low, and maintain the engine cleaner. All of this can add up to less wear and longer life.

Protect the Exterior

You may be concerned that your car is looking more and more worn out as the years pass by. Your car doesn't have to look old, so don't just give up on it. Instead, be sure you're washing and waxing it every few months. A good car wash will remove corrosive substances and buildup that will wear down your paint and make your car look older. After washing your vehicle, give it a new layer of wax. This layer will act as a barrier between your car's paint and corrosive elements. Don't forget to spot clean your car in between washes to ensure there are no corrosive substances eating away at your paint, such as bird dropping and tree sap.

Keep Your Car Covered

The sun can be extremely damaging to your car, so it's best to keep your vehicle out of it as much as you can. You may not be able to avoid it when driving, but do your best to always park in the shade, even if it's further than a sunny spot. At home, park your car in the garage or in a covered area. This will reduce sun damage that can cause your paint to dry up and peel away. The sun can also reach your car's interior and damage those areas as well. If you don't have a covered space at home, invest in a car cover.
