Don't just start the year off with your car in great shape, keep it that way for the rest of the year by setting some New Year's resolutions to keep you on track. Use these ideas to get started.

New Year's Resolutions to Keep Your Car in Top Shape

A new year often comes with New Year's resolutions. This year, why not resolve to take better care of your car? Although it may sound like hard work, the reality is that you can take care of most of your car's maintenance tasks yourself. Below are some of the most important tasks you can add to your New Year's resolutions for a great year and a healthy car.

Keep up With a Maintenance Schedule

To start, you're going to have to sort out a maintenance schedule that makes sense for your car. Since not all cars are the same and not everyone lives the same lifestyle, there may be slight differences in how often you'll need to perform certain tasks. A great way to know how often to do something, let's say change your coolant or rotate your tires, is by checking your manufacturer's recommendations. Make a note of things you'll have to check on weekly, monthly, every few months, and every year. Keep these tasks organized so that you never miss them. It may help to write them down in your calendar or even schedule an alert on your phone so you're sure you won't forget to go in for a tune up or synthetic oil change.

Focus on Your Savings

This year, try to focus some of your attention on being a more efficient driver. Not only will this be good for the environment, it can also help you save a significant amount at the pump. Some things you can slowly but surely cut out of your driving habits include making sudden stops, allowing your engine to idle, and flooring the gas on starts. It also helps to make certain lifestyle changes, such as combining trips for errands into one longer trip or choosing to walk or bike to locations that aren't very far away.

Don't Skip a Single Oil Change

Another way to save fuel is by ensuring your car is working efficiently. Getting regular oil changes is one way of ensuring your car stays efficient and healthy. This year, make it one of your resolutions to not miss a single oil change. While you're at it, be sure to get synthetic oil changes so that your car can reap the maximum benefits. Whether you change the oil yourself or your mechanic does it for you, use an oil that will keep your engine healthy for longer. Not skipping oil changes is a great New Year's resolution, but why not take this one step further? Commit to getting synthetic oil changes in Minneapolis this year. Using a synthetic oil like AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil will help your car stay in better shape for longer. For more information about the benefits of a synthetic oil change, contact All Service Oil at (763) 257-3130. You can also stop by their online store to browse their full range of AMSOIL Oil products.

Make Time for Tune-Ups

If you want to keep your car working at its best, getting tune-up should be on your maintenance list. Going in for a tune-up does require making an appointment and a bit of time, but you'll be glad you took the time to do it. Since tune-ups aren't needed super often, this is one task you can schedule ahead of time and then set a reminder on your phone so you don't forget.

Keep Your Car Clean

One of the hardest things for many drivers to keep up with is their car's cleanliness, especially if they have a long commute. You may enjoy your morning coffee while on your way to work and you may even carry your gym bag with you, which can often lead to spills and clutter in your car. The last thing you want to do after work is clean out your car. Make it one of your resolutions to clean up these spills, crumbs, and clutter once a week. Don't forget to also wash your car every couple weeks to keep it looking shiny and to protect it from corrosive materials like rain and dirt.
