Some cars and trucks are just built to last, and many cars will run for decades if properly cared for. If you've kept a car on the road for long enough to see some seriously high numbers on the odometer, then it may be time for you to start giving that car a little extra care. Read on to learn how to keep your aging car from needing expensive automotive repairs.
REPLACE CONSUMABLE PARTS BEFORE YOU NEED TO
Every car has a few components that are not designed to last as long as the car itself, so these must be replaced from time to time. Belts and hoses fit this description, and both play crucial roles under the hood. If you are not sure how long you have had the same set of belts or hoses, it is best to replace them before something goes wrong. Cracked coolant hoses could lead to overheating in the middle of nowhere, and a belt failure could cause irreparable engine damage.
