Basic Car Fixes You Can Do

Owning a car means taking on the responsibility of regular maintenance. Fortunately, some car fixes are simple enough to do yourself, saving you time and money. Here are a few basic car fixes you can handle, along with some handy products from ACE to make the job easier.  

  1. Cleaning the Interior

    A clean car interior not only looks good but also feels good to drive in. COIDO 12V Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner #6038 is perfect for this task. This vacuum cleaner can be plugged directly into your car lighter socket and can pick up dust, water, and both wet and dry particles. It comes with convenient attachments and a washable filter, making it a versatile tool for all your car cleaning needs.   
  1. Lifting the Car

    For tasks like changing a tire or inspecting the undercarriage, you’ll need a reliable jack. The DUB Heavy Duty 2-Ton Floor Jack is an excellent choice for midsize SUVs and AUVs. This hydraulic floor jack is portable, easy to store, and robust enough for heavy-duty operations. Using a floor jack allows you to safely and efficiently lift your vehicle for various maintenance tasks.  
  1. Polishing the Exterior

    To keep your car looking shiny and new, regular waxing is essential. The 3M Automotive Quick Wax is a convenient product for this purpose. It contains carnauba wax, which produces a deep, glossy shine. You can apply it wet or dry with a simple mist-on and wipe-off application, making it easy to maintain your car’s exterior appearance.  
  1. Protecting the Glass

    Visibility is crucial for safe driving, especially during rainy weather. The Armor All Shield Ceramic Glass Treatment creates an invisible protective barrier on all exterior glass surfaces. This treatment repels water, helping your windshield stay clear and clean longer. It's fast and easy to use, providing an extra layer of protection for your car's glass. 
  1. General Cleaning

    Microfiber cloths are essential for various cleaning tasks. The ACE 5-Pc Microfiber Cloths set is highly absorbent, reusable, and machine washable. These cloths are ideal for both household and automotive use, making them a versatile addition to your cleaning toolkit. Use them for wiping down surfaces, applying wax, or even cleaning windows for a streak-free finish.
