3. Swapping burned-out bulbs
Lights are sort of a weird mystery for some. There’s an old joke about needing to change your blinker fluid. If you’re concerned about blinker fluid, go here. Otherwise, your manual will have the specific instructions for your car on how to change your headlights, brake lights, and turn signals. It won’t take you more than a half hour.
4. Fuel system services
Fuel system services are a bit controversial. They can be quite beneficial to the health of your car, but generally only if it has over 100,000 miles and has been maintained only sporadically. If your car is just a few years old and you’ve been using high quality fuel, there’s a very strong likelihood your mechanic is trying to take you for a ride.
