Proper automotive maintenance is crucial to keep your car running smoothly on the Valencia roads for years to come. Of course, this includes bringing your vehicle to the Frontier Toyota service center for routine Toyota service like oil changes, tire rotations, and more. Still, there are certain tasks that you can keep up with at home. Check out this list of 10 automotive maintenance tips that every Palmdale driver should know, courtesy of Frontier Toyota.

Toyota Maintenance Advice

  1. Consult Your Owner’s Manual: Your owner’s manual is your ultimate guide to your Toyota maintenance. Make sure to consult it often for information on tire rotation frequency, how to check your oil, and more.
  2. Inspect Your Vehicle: Make sure to pay attention to leaks, flat tires, noises, shaking, and more as you drive throughout Lancaster. The sooner you are able to identify potential issues, the less costly it will be to repair in the long run.
  3. Check the Tires: There are a number of things you can do to care for your tires at home. Check tire pressure and tire tread depth, for instance.
  4. Check the Engine Oil Level: We all know how important regular oil changes are for your engine, and monitoring oil levels helps to promote engine health, as well.
  5. Check the Engine Coolant: Your owner’s manual will tell you where the coolant reservoir is located under the hood of your vehicle. Once identified, you can ensure that coolant levels are where they should be.
  6. Inspect the Air Filters: Take a look at both the engine air filter and the cabin air filter to see if there is excessive dirt or debris. If so, it is time for replacements.
  7. Use the Right Fuel: The best Toyota maintenance you can take care of yourself is using the correct fuel for your vehicle. 
  8. Inspect Light Bulbs: Your headlights and taillights promote safe driving on San Fernando Valley nights. Replace lightbulbs as needed.
  9. Inspect the Windshield Wipers: Avoid driving in poor weather conditions with windshield wipers that don’t properly work. Replace them when they no longer clear your windshield completely.
  1. Follow a Maintenance Schedule: Keep track of tasks you complete at home and what Frontier Toyota takes care of for you. Schedule Toyota service or truck maintenance with us as needed.
