Here’s another easy car care habit that, if followed along with many others, can keep your car running for (darn-near) FOREVER:
Use Your Parking Break.
Perhaps the most misunderstood feature of your vehicle, the parking break should be engaged whenever the vehicle is stopped (not just on an hill). This is because it holds your car’s transmission in place when the vehicle is parked. This helps the engine. NOT using it over time increases wear on the transmission (not cheap!) and the engine. Another simple habit that can make a big difference.
