First you pay for it. Than you care for it. Than it grows on you and you give it a name. And then you love it and treat it like a part of family. owning a car is a great tradition and many people grow up with one car, it being a landmark for a certain part of their life. And all those people try to do best with their cars. So here are some inside tips from a car pro, on how to keep your car in the best shape!
Oil – keep it smooth, keep it good. Regularly changing the oil and filters in your engine will give it years and percents to performance you need so much. And if you don’t – you won’t be cut short for the bonus, you will break your engine and kill it before time. Regular oil change is a habit you better get into since the first day you start tending your car. It will save you so much money and resources!
Cooling – often completely missed or disregarded step is the cooling system cleaning. Cooler cools your engine and without it your drives will be short and tiresome, your engine will get damaged and it’s an actual life hazard as engine can explode if it overheats. So, cleaning the cooling system by draining the old juice and filling it anew with 50% distilled water and 50% coolant mix once a year is a best favor you can do to your car.
Transmission – take good care of your gear box, it’s fairly easy to do it and it doesn’t have to be done on the regular basis. It should go without saying that you should be careful with gears, but what might need a little reminding is the fact that oiling up the gearbox is something you need to do. Not to often, but every service time is good. Using the proper oil for the transmission is also important, as you don’t want to use anything down there.
Body – keeping a clean car is something you are already doing, it goes without saying that a dirty car is both visually unappealing and potential disaster waiting to happen as it corrodes your paint and body. But, you might not have considered washing under your car every time you wash it. In warm weather, there are all kinds of dirt and grime that can get under your car and in the winter, the salt that is used to stop the ice forming on the road can eat your paint and metal like it’s paper if you let it collect.
Lubrication – if you are not sure weather some parts of your car should be greased or not – ask your self one question: are they mobile? because, if they are moving, have joints or similar, they need oil. Metal and plastic are both hard and need lubrication in order to work, so have no fear lubricating everything that moves, it’s a good thing.
Beyond – Even when you do take proper care of your vehicle, there will be repairs needed. We suggest that you look into extended auto warranty companies to help offset the costs of the repairs. They provide a service similar that takes over where the manufacturer warranties end.
