But that’s exactly the point, by ensuring that you have the correct levels of oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, wiper fluid, power steering fluid and brake fluid all the time, you can avoid expensive car repair as well as risking your life while on the road.
Air And A Spare
Tires don’t come cheap. So if you don’t want them to wear out sooner than they should be and buy new ones do yourself a favor and pay more attention to them. Always make sure they’re properly inflated and check the pressure when the tires are cool. Doing monthly visual inspection will also keep you aware of wear, cracks, slipped belts, bulges or other abnormalities. Moreover, don’t neglect your spare. If you have a properly inflated spare then you can change your own tire when the need arise and save you tow bill or road service call.
Always consult your owner’s manual to know your car’s required oil change interval. Don’t just think it’s every 3,000 miles because it’s a standard. It differs for every car. Aside from that, try to use only the grade, viscosity or weight of oil that is set for your particular car.
Okay, here’s the thing, your air filter’s job is to make sure you are breathing clean air as you drive. When the air filter itself becomes too dirty to function it puts your health to risk because it could pump your car full of dust and allergens. This is why it’s important to change your filter every three months, don’t worry it’s so simple you can easily do it yourself as long as you follow instructions on your owner’s manual, so no need to spend on car grooming services in Singapore.
Wiper Blades And Wiper Fluid
If your windshield is blurred due to dust, water, snow, or anything that could leave marks on it, it could affect your visibility on the road which may lead to an accident. Having said that, it’s very important that your wiper blades are working properly and you have wiper fluid in the compartment. Replace your wipers every year and don’t use water as wiper fluid. The wipers will cost you less than $20 but spending on that yearly is so much cheaper than having an accident, especially if your replace them yourself.
