April is National Car Care Month, which is intended to highlight the importance of vehicle care and maintenance. From the Car Care Council, here's a 10-point checklist for improved vehicle safety, dependability and fuel economy.
  1. Check, top off or replace all fluids, including brake, transmission, coolant, power steering and windshield-washer fluid

  2. Check the air filter and replace it if necessary

  3. Check the battery and charging system; clean corrosion from the terminals

  4. Pressure test the cooling system, examining belts and hoses for wear or deterioration

  5. Check or change the engine oil (change oil and filter, lubricate all grease points if this service is due)

  6. Check all lights

  7. Check windshield wipers (including rear wiper, where applicable)

  8. Check under the vehicle, including tires (don't forget the spare) and suspension

  9. Check air conditioner refrigerant and hoses as well as optional in-vehicle air filters available on some models

  10. Check engine drivability to determine condition of fuel, ignition and emissions control systems
