Whether you drive a limo, racing car or a little old runner – looking at your car is vital if you want it to last you a long time! In today’s blog post, we look at basic but essential car maintenance tips.
Car Maintenance Tip 1: Keep Tyres in Extra Good Healthy
Car maintenance Tip 2: Check Belts & Hoses
If your belts snap then everything from the water pump, power steering, and alternator will be in deep trouble!
Plus a broken hoses means potentially an over -heated engine and engine damage.
Car Maintenance Tip 3: Keep on Top of Your Brakes
Brakes are not the most attractive part of your car but we don’t have to tell you just how essential they are for your survival! If you’re beak lights begin to appear on the dashboard or your car’s taking longer to stop – it’s time to get your breaks checked.
If they’re not doing the above, still get into the habit of checking them as it’s like anything that’s used over time, they begin to wear down.
Car Maintenance Tip 4: Check lights often
Lights can crack and blow so if you’re going to fix them yourself be sure to revert your car’s manual.
Be aware that when you do change them, you’ll need gloves on and do not touch the lights’ glass. Grease and dirt from your hands will be transferred on the bulb which then will cause the bulb to heat up a lot hotter than usual and will blow!
