BC Drivers: How to Drive with Care

May 25,2022

After you break in a new Ford vehicle, the care should not stop there. Considerate driving will not only prolong the life expectancy of your vehicle, but it will also make you feel better about yourself in the long run.

First, you should never rev your car when you turn on the ignition. This can age your engine prematurely. This is especially true during the winter. Leave the drag racing to the professionals! Also, accelerate slowly when you begin to move. The most wear and tear on a motor happens during the initial 10 to 20 minutes of operation.

Contrary to popular belief, you should not allow your engine to idle to “warm it up” before travel. This can lead to incomplete fuel combustion, oil contamination, soot deposits inside the cylinders, and even damaged elements.

Another great tip is to shift into neutral while you wait at a red light. Avoid driving at high speeds especially in extreme weather, and never hit a pothole or a curb. Finally, consolidate short trips instead of dividing them up throughout the day.
