18: Replace Fluids On Time
A pandemic is a scary thing, and if it gets worse there might be a time when you’ll need to get out of a certain area. The last thing you want is to break down on the side of the road. Doing routine vehicle maintenance will keep you ahead of the curve and increase the chances of your survival. Oil changes are the first and most obvious. You’ll also want to check your battery and terminals to make sure there isn’t any corrosion.
Coolant is also an important thing – we often skip this step if our vehicle isn’t overheating. But you want to make sure that your vehicle has an adequate amount of coolant in its reservoir. Lastly, don’t forget to check your transmission fluid.
