At Coburg Towing We’re huge supporters of regular maintenance for vehicles to avoid auto breakdowns prior to they happen. If, for whatever reason the car experiences an accident then our expert team of roadside assistance specialists can help you. However, in the meantime we’ve compiled several excellent preventative maintenance strategies that you can apply to your car to prevent car problems from occurring.

Battery Checks

Check the battery of your car. The first step is to check the battery’s terminals to see if there are evidence of wear or buildup. The build-up can be removed using baking soda as well as a gentle brush Baking soda can neutralize any acidity in your battery. By cleaning your battery’s terminals frequently and ensuring that they function properly . Coca-cola can be used to clean the terminals of your car battery by pouring it onto the battery in order to get rid of the corrosion.

Tire Checks

Check that the tread on your tires and tire pressure are in good condition. Tires that are worn down and thin can be more prone to puncturing. Make use of a penny to ensure whether your treads are an eight of an inch in thickness at a minimum. Be sure that your tires have no cracks, cuts that aren’t even or uneven as a tire that is not adequately inflated will quickly be subject to stress. Use an instrument to gauge your tire pressure and ensure the tire’s pressure within the appropriate range in the owner’s manual of your vehicle.

Coolant Checks

Look under the hood of your car to make sure your coolant levels aren’t too low. If there’s liquid in the ground, it’s possible that coolant could be flowing. It isn’t a good idea to look at all the lines used to transfer coolant to the engine. Therefore, make sure you make sure to check them after the vehicle is shut off and has been cooled down. If the coolant level is low, replenish it to the proper level.

Oil Checks

Check your dipstick for the levels of your motor oil. If the motor oil in your vehicle is not working, you should have it changed properly through a professional mechanic, or an automotive service. If you are unable to get an oil test within the next few days, try to include more of the match motor oil in the time. If you think you may have an oil link, make sure to find an auto mechanic as soon as you can.
