There are many basic fixes you can do for your car without taking it to a mechanic, even if you're not a car expert. Amsoil4liny in North Babylon brings you some DIY car maintenance tips to try at home. You will be saving money and learning a new skill in the process.  Your basic resources for anything involving your car are your owner’s manual and your willingness to learn. For the major fixings and frequency services, you do need to take your car to the professionals.

Replacing the Headlights

You are going to start by purchasing a replacement light bulb. If you are not sure what to get, check your owner’s manual or remove the old bulb and take it straight to the hardware store. Again, you should consult your manual for specific instructions on how to remove the housing and its screws. Now turn the socket a quarter counterclockwise to unlock the socket. Pull out the socket and the bulb form the housing. At this point, perhaps you’ll have to clean the socket and housing from possible corrosion. Now you can replace the socket and bulb back into the housing. To lock the socket back in place, turn the housing a quarter clockwise. Turn your lights on to verify your new headlights are fully functioning and you are set.

Car Dents

A car dent can happen to even the best driver; in fact, you don’t even have to be near your vehicle for a dent to happen. Fortunately, there are some options you can try to fix those dents. Think of opening and closing a door when you are fixing your dent, you are going to pull and push. If these methods don’t work for you, then you might actually have to take your car to the body shop.

Pull

Many small dents located around the hood, trunk, or doors can be fixed by a simple pulling suction. It’s simple and you don’t need to follow complicated YouTube tutorials. Just head to an automobile parts shop and buy a suction dent puller. To use the suction cup, you have to wet it so it can properly latch to the surface. Once it’s secured, pull with all your might. You’ll probably have to wait a few moments, but the dent will certainly look better.

Push

If pulling just doesn’t do it for you, it's probably because of the location. You need to be able to reach the backside of the dent, so remove the panel with a screwdriver. Oddly enough, you will need a hairdryer and a mallet or something along those lines. Start by heating up the dent using your hair dryer. Once the area is warm, use your mallet to push it from the interior side. Repeat the process until you get the dent out. After you are done, apply some wet rags to the area to set the material. Taking care of your car means protecting the inside as well. To protect your engine, it has to have the right lubrication. A synthetic oil change in North Babylon is the best way to provide this lubrication. Synthetic oil has better resistance against extreme temperature changes, provides better protection against friction, and can even lower your fuel consumption.

Oil Change

You already know that you need to change your oil with certain frequency. If you get a synthetic oil change, this period will be even longer. It’s best to invest in the product that brings the greatest benefits, which is AMSOIL synthetic oil. To change your oil, you first have to drain your old, used oil. You will need a ratchet, an oil filter wrench, an oil drain pan, a funnel, new synthetic oil, a new oil filter, and a clean rag and a car jack. Locate your oil filter and drain plug underneath your car, and place the drain pan beneath the plug. If you need to lift you car for better access, go ahead and use a car jack. Turn on your car for a bit to warm up the oil, it will drain easier if it’s warm. Be careful not to touch anything if it’s too hot or you might get burned.  Remove the drain plug and let the oil drain. Once everything is out, remove the oil filter with the wrench. Careful when you remove the oil filter because it will probably still have some oil; that’s where you rag comes handy. Dab the new filter’s ring with a little bit of oil in order for it to seal better. Place and secure the filter back in place and pour in the new oil. Put the oil cap back on. Now you should turn on your car for a minute or so, then shut it off and check for any possible leaks. Lower back your car and you’re all set.
