Automobile owners should take some time to check on their cars fluids, and safety features.
"Assistance may also be required from friends or a professional mechanic; they help in showing where to check, and with the procedures," says Mike, a lead technician at Automotive Engineering's Auto Repair Shop in Mesa, AZ.
Basic checks include the engine oil, antifreeze liquid, brake pad ware, and also steering fluid. Plus take time and check the wiper fluid, it’s also important for the car to maintain optimum oil balance and prevent engine oil starvation. The oil could at times gets dirty meaning that, it should be changed after a 3 month duration, or soon when you have covered 3,000 miles. Antifreeze liquid must never be left to go very low, since the engine may overheat, and hence cause major damage. The best thing is for it to be adjusted once after a 2yr period.
Also check on tire pressure and ensure everything is working coherently, a basic tire gauge may be used to asses functionality. Stick it onto the main valve stem on the tires and the gauge will automatically begin reading. Average pressure amount due for vehicle tires, may be read from internal door jamb sections found beside the driver’s door unit. Insufficient tire inflation can be dangerous, since it may result to loss of balance or ultimate blowouts.
"Improperly inflated automobile tires, can significantly reduce the vehicle's fuel mileage, and handling capabilities," says Mike of Automotive Engineering.
Take time and check on tire treads, since there could be uneven wear that may result to imbalance, if the tread lines are shallow then it’s appropriate to get some new tires.
Braking pads may regularly be adjusted to maintain robustness, also take heed for any screeching sound that could be heard while driving the vehicle.
"This is a clear indication that brake pads may require urgent replacement before things change from bad to worse," says Mike from Automotive Engineering of Mesa.
Two other key areas to check on are battery meter output and air filters, an average car’s battery lasts for around 3yrs, in the Arizona heat. But if there is corrosion and loose battery cables then some quick work would be needed.
