How To: Check your tire pressure.
While it's easy to overlook those four patches of rubber called your tires, performing a few simple checks can yield better fuel economy and improved vehicle handling. Since most tire damage and wear is a result of driving on tires that are improperly inflated, tire experts suggest checking your air pressure once a month.
How To: Visually assess your tires.
Newer tires have a convenience that older tires lacked. They have tread wear indicator bars built into the tires themselves. These bars, invisible or barely visible when the tires are new, gradually begin to appear as the tread wears down. They appear as flat rubber bars running perpendicular to the direction�of the tread itself. If more than one or two of these are visible on a tire, the tread is getting low.�
How To: Test your battery.�
Lack of battery care and maintenance combined with cold weather has a way of bringing out the borderline batteries that were fine in the summer, but don't have the power for a cold weather start. And not just winter, battery care and maintenance is a year round requirement. You want to catch a bad battery before it lets you down, usually on one of the coldest days of the year.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE:�Before you do anything with a battery, you need to wear eye protection and keep any open flames away from the battery. This includes cigarettes and other smoking products. Batteries produce hydrogen gas that is extremely flammable. Batteries contain sulfuric acid so I would also recommend wearing latex gloves to keep battery acid from burning your hands.
How To: Balance and Rotate Tires.
Tire rotation and balance are two very important steps in keeping your four wheels rolling properly. Rotating tires at every other oil change will keep your tires wearing properly. Front tires always wear a little faster than rears because you are constantly turning them which causes more stress/wear. Rotating these tires to the rear, and moving the rears to the front will keep all fours of your tires wearing evenly.

How To: Transmission Flush.
A transmission is a complex piece of machinery, and many different factors can cause it to wear down sooner than it should. Whatever the underlying cause, most transmissions start wearing out due to heat taking its toll on the individual parts. The most effective thing you can do to limit the heat on a transmission is to keep it lubricated. A common mistake is to believe that any old transmission fluid will do.�Specific transmissions are built to perform optimally under particular conditions, using transmission fluid that works best for them.
How To: Check oil, air filter, and windshield wipers�
The importance of keeping your windshield washer fluid tank filled is quite important for your cars' care. �The importance comes, primarily from mishaps that occur suddenly, such as dust, insects, etc. Such things can distract your driving abilities, leading to unsafe and unclear vision.�
