Top 10 Tips for Car Maintenance


MAINTAINING WHEELS AND TYRES ROTATE YOUR TYRES! Every 5,000 miles or 8,000km, rotate your tyres . CLEAN BRAKE DUST OFF REGULARLY! Brake dust contains all sorts of nasty stuff. If you leave it too long, the combination of road grime, moisture and heat from your brakes will bake it on to your wheels . CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURES! Check your tyre pressures regularly - once a week is ideal. Bad tyre pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort.  CHECK YOUR TREAD DEPTH! Bald , slick tyres might be good for motor racing but they're no good on the road.


MAINTAINING VEHICLE’S ENGINE CHECK YOUR BELTS! At the front of your engine there will be a series of rubber drive belts that loop around various pulleys, driving everything from the alternator to the a/c compressor. Rubber perishes, more so in extreme conditions like those found in an operating engine bay. FUEL ECONOMY! Check your tyre pressures regularly - once a week is ideal. Bad tyre pressures can affect fuel economy very noticeably. CHECKING YOUR OIL LEVEL! This is something everyone can do - it's quick and easy and it'll tell you if your engine needs oil. If the oil is too high or too low, it can cause trouble for your engine. To check the oil, park on level ground and wait until the engine has cooled down after driving, then locate the dipstick. Pull it out and wipe it clean, then push it all the way back in until the top of it is seated properly in the dip tube again. Wait a moment then pull it out again .



MAINTAINING VEHICLE’S ENGINE CHECKING YOUR COOLANT LEVEL! Again, something everyone can do. The coolant is the other thing your engine cannot go without. Every engine is different but if you check your handbook you should find where the coolant reservoir is. It will normally be bolted to one side of the engine bay or the other, and be a white semi-transparent bottle. Wait until your engine is cool and take a look at it - the outside should have 'low' and 'high' markings on it and the level of coolant inside should be between the two. Note: Do not take the radiator cap off to check coolant levels. If the coolant system is still hot then it is still under pressure and the pressure release will burn you.


MAINTAINING ELECTRICAL DISCONNECTING AND RECONNECTING YOUR BATTERY! If you're going to do any work on your car involving the electrical system, disconnect the battery first. To do this, loosen the connector for the negative/ground terminal first, and wiggle the terminal cap off. Use a wire-tie or similar to tie the cable back out of the way. If you need to take the battery out, you can now take off the positive connector . Why negative then positive?  If you disconnect the positive side of the battery first, the negative side is still connected to the entire car. If you drop a tool and it lands on the positive battery terminal and touches anything else on the car, you'll have an electrical short. By disconnecting the negative first, you're cutting off the return path for the current . Reconnecting your battery.  Connect the positive terminal first, and the negative second - the reverse of removal, and for the same reasons. CHECK YOUR BATTERY TERMINALS ! Most modern cars run on a 12 volt negative ground electrical system .
