Owning a car is not just enough but the proper maintenance of it also plays a very important role in the smooth and hassle free running of a car. Regular maintenance and servicing makes you and your car away from the mobile car mechanic shop and give you a memorable and hassle free trip or journeys with your family members. Here are some “must do’s” for the proper and best maintenance of your car.
Engine oil is the major lubricant that ensures the proper running of the vehicle, Generally the companies mention the time at which the engine oil has to be changed in the manual and it is advisable to change at those times. But for vehicles which are in the transportation field or towing field, it is recommended to provide the engine oil changing for every 3000 miles.
It is recommended to replace the coolant with every oil change because there may be some leakage which may lead to the low level of coolant despite of filling it regularly. Coolant also plays a very important role in the smooth functioning of a car engine, so make sure to change it at regular intervals and the recommended time is when you change your oil.
The Car tyres should be filled with the specified amount of the air pressure to balance the braking, handling, gas mileage, and ride comfort. You can usually find the pressure specifications on the side of the tyre, the driver-side doorjamb, in the glove box, or on the fuel-filler door. Always make sure to fill it upto the limit specified, don’t fill the more air as it may make the tyre to blast due to more pressure in it.
The car owners must make sure to use the regular grade fuel for their cars, but many of us make a costly mistake of filling the high grade fuels available in the market. Filling these fuels won’t cause any damage to your engine and it also won’t improve the performance either. So, it is advisable to use the regular grade for your cars and for cars with hotter-running, high-compression engines, we recommend the higher –octane fuels.
This is a very old and still followed advice by most of the people. Warming up the engine before starting the driving process makes your car condition, optimum and some say that your battery also gets recharged. Once it warms up, it will make sure to provide the best mileage and performance that is needed.
These are some of the basic and recommended measure to be taken by every car owner to maintain the good condition of the car and stay away from the car mechanic shop and unexpected car breakdowns.
