6 Simple Ways to Service Your Car Today

As a vehicle owner, you will be aware that taking your car for a service is an important step when it comes to maintaining it. All those certain things should be left to the professionals, there are a number of ways in which you can stay on top of your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’ve just got a new car, or you’re hoping to bring your older vehicle back to life, it’s time to get hands-on with your car and discover whether you could carry out some simple services to your vehicle today. 

1. Get Your Tires Checked

Looking after your car tires and wheels will help to keep you safe, and it will allow your vehicle to perform at its optimum level. Keeping you and other family members safe is also very important so you may want to consider visiting a full service tire shop in your area for your own peace of mind. Although you can check your tire pressure and increase them if necessary, sometimes it’s best to get them checked over by an expert so that you can be doubly sure.

2. Top Up Your Windscreen Wash

Having an adequate amount of windscreen wash in your vehicle's screen washer is actually a legal requirement. This is why it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the levels, especially before embarking on long journeys.

3. Upgrade Your Battery

Your car battery will tend to last around three years or so, depending on the type of vehicle you drive and how often you use it. Usually a flat battery or faulty battery can cause breakdowns so it’s a good idea to stay on top of your battery usage. Look out for signals such as low battery lights and engine changes if you want to know how your current battery is doing.

4. See if Your Horn is Operating

Giving your horn a quick check can save you from potentially dangerous situations in the long run. When you’re parked on your driveway, blast it out and check that it’s functional and loud enough for other drivers to hear.

 

5. Stay on Top of Your Regular Service

Regular servicing for all vehicles is vital and your region will have different legal requirements to adhere to. As a standard recommendation, you may want to get your car checked out every 12,000-15,000 miles just so you can make sure everything is in order. If you have any doubts, you may want to check your car’s manual, so you can be sure you’re on top of your servicing appointments.

6. Check Your Engine Oil

When it comes to checking your engine oil this needs to come between the minimum and maximum levels on the dipstick of your car. Keeping your oil topped up will prevent damage to your engine and reduce the risk of a breakdown.

With these six simple servicing ideas in mind, you will soon be able to keep your car up and running without adding to your monthly bills!
