If you’re looking for the best way to get the best performance out of your car, then make sure you keep up with regular maintenance. Maintenance isn’t optional. It’s not just about efficiency. It’s not just about your warranty. It’s also about performance.

Regular Maintenance Boosts Performance

Performing the regular maintenance according to instructions by the maker of your car will help keep your car running at peak performance. Not only will performing regular maintenance reduce risk of breakdowns, and improve efficiency, but it can also keep your car moving quicker.

Fail to perform regular maintenance and you may suffer some consequences related to engine performance:

  • Loss of Power: If your car isn’t performing like it used to, it might be because you haven’t changed the oil, the spark plugs, or the air filters. If the engine isn’t getting the air or gas it needs to run, then it can’t put out the power you want.
  • Drop in Gas Mileage: Efficiency is directly related to the performance of your car. You want a car that efficiently translates gas into forward moment, don’t you? If you notice any change in fuel economy, it’s a sign that your engine isn’t performing at the capability that you want.
  • Engine Stalling: If your engine begins to stall unexpectedly, you’ve got a problem. This could also be due to bad air filters, bad spark plugs, or something else.
  • Exhaust Odor: If the car smells funny, it’s probably because your engine isn’t doing a good job of burning gas. That means you’re not getting the most out of your engine.
