If you’re a car owner, it’s vital to carry out preventative maintenance on your car to reduce the chances of road traffic accidents (RTAs) occurring. Steps like checking your tyre pressure on a regular basis and changing your oil enable you to identify issues before they turn into serious problems.
Read the manual
Reading the manual that came with your vehicle is essential. By paying attention to the manufacturer’s instructions, you can find out what maintenance steps you need to take for your specific vehicle, not just cars in general. The manual will tell you how often you need to change your oil, filters, timing belts and much more.
You need to carry out your own inspections regularly. You don’t need expert motoring knowledge to do this. These inspections can include making sure all the lights are working, checking the air pressure, listening out for odd sounds, checking wiper fluid levels, assessing the battery, cleaning the contacts and replacing your windscreen wipers when you start to notice streaks. Your tyres need to be rotated and balanced on a regular basis too – your manual will tell you how often this needs to take place. Spark plugs also need to be checked – if they become worn out, you can find yourself going through much more fuel than you need to.
