Another Couple of Years: Making Your Vehicle Last With Help From Top Line AutomotivePosted May 26, 2019 7:51 AM
A while back, the Cash for Clunkers program was all over the CA news. Norwalk people could trade in their old vehicle for a new one that got better gas mileage and receive a government rebate.
A lot of Norwalk motorists had so-called clunkers that they wanted to keep. They're good commuters, grocery getters or toy haulers. They enjoy that fact that they're paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles (320,000 kilometers) or more – as long as it's economical to do so.
There are plenty of Norwalk drivers whose vehicles are running after 150,000 or 200,000 miles (240,000 or 320,000 kilometers). We can learn from what they're doing to keep our own vehicles on the road in CA.
That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it's really not. First off, oil is the life blood of your vehicle's engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that is bad for your engine.
