What are some ways to make an old car run like new?

I inherited my dad’s old Cadillac. Lately, it's been running poorly. I want to keep the car, but I want something that's reliable. How can I make an old car run like it's brand new?

Family cars can have a lot of sentimental value, so it makes sense you want to do everything to keep your dad’s old car running.
If you want to make your old car run like new, one of the best things you can do is give it a tune-up. By replacing the belts, filters, and spark plugs, you can breathe new life into your old car.
You can also keep a basic car maintenance schedule which includes:
  • Top off fluids and flush systems as necessary
  • Change the oil regularly
  • Rotate the tires
  • Stay on top of repairs
You also might want to consider classic car coverage. For the best rates on this and other types of coverage, go comparison shopping with Jerry!
