You know how fireplaces, chimneys, and grills get covered with black gunk over time? The same happens in your engine. Over time, that gunk makes your engine less powerful. It slows the flow of fuel and air. When it clogs the fuel injectors, it turns the fine spray into a gloppy stream that doesn’t ignite fully. That means you use more fuel, but get less power.

Keeping the engine cool is a critical job. Without it, the engine melts into a solid block. It keeps the water pump, radiator, hoses, and liquid coolant working to protect your engine from excess heat.
Belts hardly ever fail while you’re at the service station. That would be too easy. To avoid a breakdown, have your belts inspected regularly—especially if they’re 4-5 years old or have 50,000 miles on them.
Most manufacturers recommend every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
You shouldn’t have to recharge your air conditioner every year.
