Title: Car Maintenance Checklist


1
  • 9 Car Maintenance Checklists to Prevent Costly
    Repairs

2
  • Just like the saying goes An Apple a Day
    Keeps the Doctor Away so does it apply to cars,
    except in this case its regular maintenance. Cars
    must be maintained to save cost and effort, if
    you don't inculcate the habit of regular vehicle
    maintenance scheduling, you will be at a constant
    loss and probably spend half your days at the
    mechanic.

3
  • Whether youre familiar with cars or not, here
    are a few car maintenance tips to live by.

1. Checking Oil Engine
5
One of the first things on your vehicle
maintenance checklist should be the engine oil.
There are a variety of ways to maintain your
engine oil, but one of the simplest is adding a
clean engine oil First, pull out the engine oil
dipstick to determine the level and colour of the
oil (if it's black, you need to change it. If
it's brown then there's not much to worry about).
You also need to check the level from the markers
on the dipstick and make sure it's not too low.
Finally, you gently add a fresh one to the engine
oil tank, but do not fill it to the brim.

2. Refilling the Engine Coolant
7
Your car needs regular engine coolant to lessen
the endothermic processes that occur within the
engine. The engine coolant is in the overflow
tank. All you need to do is mix the coolant with
water and add it into the tank when the level is
low. It is very important to make sure your
engine is not hot when adding the coolant.

  • 3. Engine Air Filter

9
  • The engine air filter is susceptible to dirt
    and over time, the air vents get clogged with
    webs of dirt. When that happens, the necessary
    course of action is to change it. And this is
    fairly easy and available in your cars manual.
    You can also ask your mechanic or your friend to
    show you how it's done.

  • 4. The Transmission Fluid 1

11
  • The transmission fluid has many functions
    in your car. It primarily lubricates the shifting
    gear mechanism and cools down the transmission.
    Like the engine oil, many cars usually have a
    dipstick to check the level of transmission fluid
    with markings indicating whether it is hot or
    cold. Once you dip the dipstick back into the
    tank, you will be able to assess the state of
    your transmission fluid. Then, you refill it if
    its low. However, this is not a regular process
    and can be left for your mechanic.

5. Wipers
13
  • Your car wipers are necessary in order to
    get a clear view when its raining. Over time,
    the friction causes some wear on the wipers and
    results in their dysfunction. Test your wipers
    during a car wash to determine their
    functionality and replace them before they get
    worn out. Wipers are easy to replace and cost
    very little money.

6. Tires
15
  • Your car wheels are the parts most subjected
    to pressure so make sure they remain in good
    condition. Start by checking the air pressure and
    make sure they remain inflated. Also check the
    wear on the tires surface and ensure they retain
    some grip. If not, it might be time to consider
    replacing your car tires. Tires maintenance must
    not be shrugged off, it should be an important
    car maintenance checklist. 1

7. Tires Rotation
17
  • A good way to check the wear of your tires
    is by rotating them regularly to make sure the
    front and back tires dont wear unevenly.

18
8. Battery
19
  • You should regularly check your car battery
    and make sure the terminals are not corroded.
    However, do not tamper with it and consult your
    mechanic before cleaning or changing the terminal.

20
9. Brakes
21
  • Your car brakes need to be checked regularly
    especially the brake pads, brake rotors, and
    brake fluid. However, this is a bit technical and
    should be done by your mechanic.

22
  • Your car deserves regular maintenance and we
    recommend you to create a vehicle maintenance
    schedule of various parts of your car to keep
    track of when to get a fluid check, replacement,
    or any other maintenance procedure.
  • Always keep your vehicle in good condition and
    drive safely!
