Experts have dispelled five popular myths about car care that are a waste of money. This was reported on the Motor Happy website.

According to experts, some motorists are too focused on the condition of their cars. However, not all of them know how to maintain cars properly.

TOP 5 car maintenance myths:

1. Oil needs to be changed every 3000 km

Engine oil does not have to be changed every 3000 km. It's best to follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Read your owner's manual to find out when to change your oil. This way you can save some money.

2. Tires must be inflated to the pressure indicated on their sidewall

Some people believe that the number on the sidewall of a tire is the recommended air pressure. However, it indicates the pressure that the tire can withstand.

It is best to check the recommended tire pressure for your car in advance. This parameter can be found on a sticker on the driver's side door, in the glove compartment or on the fuel filler flap.

3. The car engine must be warmed up

Many owners run the engine for a few minutes before driving to warm it up. Experts have said that modern cars warm up and cool down quite quickly.

The best way to warm up your car is to start the trip smoothly. Drive at the lowest possible speeds first, then gradually increase them.

4. The body of the car must be washed with dishwashing detergent or washing powder

Dishwashing detergent and washing powder are designed to wash off grease. This can damage the protective paint layer on your car.

Experts recommend using a car wash. If you need to wash the car yourself, use special products.

5. Premium fuel will help improve vehicle performance

Premium fuel will not improve vehicle performance unless it is listed as recommended. The US Federal Trade Commission has confirmed that in most cases, there is absolutely no benefit to using gasoline with a higher octane rating than recommended in the owner's manual.
