The primary function of your cars suspension and steering systems is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.

Maintaining your car doesn't have to be a hassle, here are some quick tips and advice on the basics of car maintenance!
PERFORMANCE ENGINES & TRANSMISSIONS JASPER Engines has four levels of engine performance for your project vehicle. "Stock" is the general production engine offered in a production vehicle.
Stock engines receive JASPER's tried and true methods of remanufacturing, including torque plate honing, three-angle valve seat machining Precision crankshaft machining, oil chamfering and polishing and computer-assisted live-run testing.
The "Class I" engine is the same JASPER general production engine, but with a mild camshaft upgrade. Class I engines generally produce about 10% more horsepower and torque over the standard stock engine.
Check the owner's manual to see if your driving habits are considered to be "severe service". This type of driving requires more frequent oil changes, warns the Car Care Council. Have the oil changed accordingly, usually every 3-5,000 miles.
For less wear and tear on the engine, drivers in cold climates (sub-zero driving temperatures) should drop their oil weight from 10-W30 to 5-W30. Your mom and dad would probably suggest simply moving to someplace warmer.
