Maintaining your vehicle’s condition can be a challenge and it can be very costly. But there are ways to keep your car in best condition without breaking the bank.
Here are some tips to ensure you maintain your vehicle in perfect condition:
To make sure your tyres are always good as new, make it a habit to check your tyres once a week. Have a look at uneven wears and regularly check the tyre pressure. Instead of spending thousands in wheel replacement and alignment, investing in a tyre pressure gauge can be the best way to prevent it.
Charge it up
Usually, batteries are not noticed until you can’t start your car one day. To make sure that this does not happen on the wrong place, make sure you check and charge up your battery specially if you’re going for a long drive.
First of all, it is against the law to drive with broken head or tail lights. Every light inside and outside of your car is important because it serves as your way to communicate with other drivers when you’re on the road and it’s dangerous if they don’t work. So make sure you check your lights!
Check for cracks
Every time you clean your car, make sure you check the body and your windscreen to see if there are chips or cracks. The tiniest cracks can cause huge problems so make sure you get on to it right away if you see one. This is to make sure that you prevent any further damage on them.
Oil levels and fluids
Engine fluids are important to ensure that the parts of your vehicle do not create friction and will be running smoothly. Remember to always check your brake fluid, power steering fluid and your coolants to ensure you’re safe on the road. The simple dipstick trick helps to check oil levels but make sure your car is parked on level ground and you clean the dipstick first to get accurate results.
Time for a change
Parts like windscreen wipers and cabin air filters collect a lot of dirt and dust which makes them worn out. Make sure to check them every now and then to see if they need replacement. You can usually change them on your own, just refer to your vehicle manual for instructions.
Keep it clean
Keeping your car clean can make all the difference. Removing clutter inside your car and keeping the body clean helps keep it looking new and it helps prevent the dirt from going places you don’t want them to be. Bits of dirt and trash that can get stuck in your car can create rust and molds that can damage it overtime so make sure to clean every nook and cranny every now and then.
These simple tips are easy and would only take a few minutes of your time to do.
