  • A clean engine will run cooler than a dirty one. A clean engine will make it much easier to spot leak and to service components.
  • Remember to protect sensitive engine components and electrical parts with plastic bags before getting started.
  • You may also have your engine professionally steam cleaned.
  • when outside temperatures drop or soar, tires tend to lose pressure. A drop of 10 degrees F (6 degrees C), in fact, will decrease a tire’s air pressure by 1 or 2 pounds. Tires can lose even more air in hot weather. Under-inflated tires can result in accelerated wear and poor driving performance. If you live in a place where temperatures vary a lot, check your tire pressure often and add air as needed.
  • Check fluid levels monthly (Brake Fluid, Wiper Washer Fluid, Coolant, Engine Oil, Power Steering Fluid and Battery Fluid), if you need to add fluid, add the type recommended by your car manufacturer.
  • Precautions while filling up engine oil – Run the engine for about 15 minutes to warm the oil, and then park the car in a level place.
  • Turn the engine off and wait 15 minutes to allow the oil in the engine to drain back to oil pan.
  • Remove the dipstick and wipe it clean with a paper towel or rag. Reinsert the dipstick, Push it all the way and then pull it out again to check oil level.
  • The level should be between and maximum and minimum marks in the dipstick.
  • Please add the type and amount of oil as specified in your owner’s manual, if necessary.
  • Rotating your tires helps to distribute tire wear evenly and ensures that you’ll get the maximum road life out of them. The first rotation is especially important. Your owner’s manual should specify both rotation period and pattern. If not, rotate your tires every 6,000 to 7,500 miles (9,700 to 12,000 km) — your tire dealer should know the correct pattern of tire rotation.
  • Cooling system needs both Coolant – Antifreeze and Water, so don’t pour undiluted coolant in cooling system.
  • Dilute with water to commonly recommended 50-50 ratio.
  • Similarly don’t use straight water in cooling system. Coolant protects against corrosion and freezing.
  • Nail in your tire? It’s important to know if a puncture can be repaired if the tire needs to be replaced.

Since tires effect a vehicle’s ride, handling and traction, checking tire pressure
    Maintaining your vehicle’s tires is not only essential to getting better gas mileage, but it is also crucial to ensuring safety on the road. To maximize tire life, the Car Care Council recommends checking tire condition and pressure regularly, and there is no better time to start than National Tire Safety Week.
