Don't always trust the gauges on your car for vital needs. Things to check under your hood are water in radiator, oil level, brake fluid, battery fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. Get a friend or family member to help you with these checks. You'll soon learn to do these checks yourself. But, do check them at least every two weeks (or more often if you travel a lot) to keep your engine running smoothly and avoid problems developing.
