Keep The Engine Humming: Three Ways To Extend The Life Of Your Car

Keep The Engine Humming: Three Ways To Extend The Life Of Your Car

We love our cars. That’s not really going to be much of a surprising fact. Anyone who drives a car is pretty heavily aware of the benefits and joys of getting behind the wheel. It offers you a chance for freedom and independence. Not to mention the thrill that comes with the feel of the engine purring underneath you.

Whatever and however you drive, getting into your car is, for a lot of people, something genuinely great. It’s not surprising that people get very emotionally attached to their cars, caring for them and even sometimes naming them.

If you do feel that attachment to your car, then you’re going to want to do everything you can in order to help it last as long as possible. With that in mind, here are three things that you can do to keep your motor running for years to come.

Regular check-ups

Do you want to keep your body healthy?

Then you need to have regular check-ups with your doctor. The same goes for your car. Just because your car is currently running just fine doesn’t mean that there isn’t a chance that something is wrong. If you can get out ahead of the need for auto repair, you’ll not only save yourself a lot of time, money and convenience but it will definitely extend the life of your vehicle.

Some kind of major disaster is much more likely to do serious damage to your car overall than basic, continual maintenance. It’s a good idea to find a mechanic that you trust who can come to understand the needs of your car, in particular, that way you can be sure it’s always in safe hands.

Routine inspections

It really doesn’t take much to look your car all over to check that everything’s in order. Which makes it that much more bizarre how often people just forget to do it. If you look over your car from top to bottom a least once a week, you’ll be much more likely to spot little problems before they get the chance to become big ones.

Whether it’s making sure that all the tires are in good condition or that all of the lights are working, checking on these little things might seem insignificant, but it all adds up and is a great way to make sure that you’re really paying close attention to the condition of your car.

Change the way you drive

One of the biggest ways that people can shorten the lifespan of their car is simply through the way that they drive. Make sure that your driving isn’t putting unnecessary strain on the car in any way. The most common ways that people tend to do this is through the way that they shift gears. Make sure that your transitions between gears are smooth so that they don’t get worn down. You should also avoid braking in neutral. It’s a common mistake many drivers make but it can wear out your brake pads far more quickly than they normally would.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
