You may be surprised that as a mechanic, I would offer tips to prevent repair costs, but if you can save money learning more of how your car functions, you should.

1. Change the oil! This is probably the best advice I can give any car owner. Sure, your car drives the same (to you) when you delay the oil change, but dirty oil can clop tiny passages in your engine. And if you wait too long, it will cost vastly more than a $30 oil change. Every 5,000 miles or what is recommended by your car's manufacturer.
