There are many reasons why you should get regular car maintenance performed, mainly because when car parts wear out, you’re risking your safety. Some car parts are made of rubber and plastic and require frequent replacement; some are made of metals and wear off much slower. But eventually almost all of them should be replaced.
Usually maintenance is done every 10,000 kms and it involves replacing car parts like the oil and oil filter, spark plugs, brake pads and cambelts. After further mileage water pump and other major parts are replaced in order to avoid their failure and further damage.
Apart from the scheduled maintenance, there are things that you will need to look after and keep on top of. They are: regular oil change, fluid change and level monitoring, tyre rotation and tyre pressure.
Oil level is one of the most important things to maintain. it reduces the friction inside your engine and allows the engine parts to operate smoothly. If there is not enough oil in the system or it is too old, it will lose the lubrication properties and will eventually cause serious damage to your engine. Talk to Autoland, North Shore Mechanic to discuss when you should get your oil changed.
Autoland, North Shore Mechanic can also help you out with flushing the many fluids your car needs to operate properly. Examples are: brakes, steering and cooling and heating. These are all closed systems, meaning there is no way for the fluids to evaporate or leak as long as the system is maintained properly. So if you see that one of them has been reduced, make sure you consult with a professional, rather than attempting to fix it on your own. It’s important that these fluids levels are checked every now and then, at Autoland, North Shore Mechanic we will always check them with your car service.
Tyre rotation ensures an even wear for your tyres. The correct pressure in your tyres will keep your tyres from been damaged and will improve your fuel efficiency. Inside the driver's door, there should be a chart that lists, among other things, the correct pressure in your tyres for the front and rear wheels.
At Autoland, North Shore Mechanic we encourage you to follow these tips and come and see us to avoid major damage and problems with your vehicle.
