check fluids

It is really not difficult to keep your car in a good shape. Below are some basic maintenance tips for your car:

  • Keep all the fluids (e.g. engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant e.t.c.) clean and topped up.
  • Read your car owners manual, it has all the information on car maintenance as well as safety precautions.
  • Follow your maintenance schedule, there is a number of things that need to be regularly serviced or replaced at certain intervals (e.g. brakes, air filter, timing belt, spark plugs, e.t.c.)
  • Check tire pressure regularly.
  • Change your windshield wiper if they don’t clean properly.
  • Wash and wax your vehicle once in a while to keep the car finish shiny and protected from corrosion.
  • Deal with any problems as soon as they arise before they become more serious and require expensive repairs.
  • Use only original parts.
  • At least once in a year have your car checkout by an auto mechanic.
  • Do not ignore the check lights and symbol on your dashboard, the earlier you attend to such warning, the better.
