Car Service Checklist

Use this Car Service Checklist for both self service or garage service:


  • Depending on the weather, tires will either expand or contract, so check their pressure and add air if necessary.
  • Look for things like uneven tread wear, thin spots or bulges and do something about them, quickly.
  • Every car has belts that should be checked on a regular basis, to check for fraying and breakage.
  • Sometimes hoses will burst, become brittle or rot, so check them on a monthly basis.
  • Also called coolant, check the level and add to it if it's low.
  • Check this and if needed, replace.

Coming up with a car service checklist for your own personal use is not hard. And doing it on your own, rather than relying on a repair shop, saves you money. In addition to maintaining your car for as long as possible, a well-oiled machine will also keep you safe. Protect your vehicle and yourself by performing regular maintenance.

Car Service Checklist Tips

  • Weather will impact your service in a couple ways.
    • Tire pressure. Because of the changes in heat and cold, tires expand and contract, causing them to possibly lose air. It's even more critical to regularly check the pressure during extreme weather changes.
    • ¬†Antifreeze. Since this helps to maintain the heating and cooling units, it's critical during extreme weather.
    • This Car Service Checklist is just a reference. Save it to your account and then customize it to fit your particular car and your driving habits
