3 Basic Car Maintenance Tips Every Car Owner Should Know

Here is the top 3 car maintenance tips that will help you add to your car’s life span as a new car owner:

1. Check the Tyres

Since the tyres are hidden under your car’s body we often miss taking care of them. Bald or flat tyres can leave you stranded. Check the pressure of your tyres frequently or bring your car into AME Automotive and we will do it for free while you wait. By keeping your tyres at the correct pressure will also reduce abnormal wear.  This means you do not have to replace them before you really needed to, saving you a lot of money.  Oh and check the spare!

You should also keep an eye on the tread depth of your tyres.  After all tyres with good grip will keep you safe on slippery roads. Tyre assessment can be a little tricky for new car owners; that’s why at AME Automotive we offer comprehensive car maintenance along with Tyre inspections.

2. Keep the Batteries Terminals Clean

Batteries are a consumable in vehicles.  They last a few years, but we also need to maintain them.  One thing you can do is clean your car battery terminals, Check out a few YouTube videos; you will first need to disconnect the leads. Start with the negative terminal and clean thoroughly using a battery cleaner brush or abrasive material. Once that’s done connect the terminals back starting from the positive side.

3.  Keep the Car Oil and Water Levels

Engine oil enables smooth functioning and reduces the friction and heat between your car’s engine internal parts.  Oil often gets contaminated, and the lubricants can wear out. That is why it is important to keep the oil topped up in between your regular services.   You can do this by checking the oil dip stick in your engine bay.  Check your car owner’s manual on how to locate it for your particular vehicle.  Similarly the radiator water over summer or in between services can get low. .Top up your water to ensure your engine runs cool.

When Should You Seek Professional Help for Your Car?

While it’s the owner’s responsibility to look after the car’s regular scheduled maintenance, some problems can only be solved by expert mechanical help. Here are a few situations in which you should definitely call AME Automotive for the professional assistance of a car mechanic:

1.  Unexplained Smoke

If you ever see a thick cloud of smoke rising from your car’s engine, please seek our AME’s professional help. Some causes can be overheating of the engine or from any of the oils leaking onto the heated engine. This is certainly not a problem that you’d want to tackle.

2. Puddles under Your Vehicle

Check under your vehicle (or move the car) and if you see a puddle of liquid then it could be a sign of leakage.  You can diagnose by the colour of the liquid what is potentially happening e.g. brown/black oil could be brake oil, engine oil, or even the gear oil. Green liquid is most likely a leak from the radiator.

Regardless of what is causing the leak it time to book the car in for its regular maintenance.

3. When Your Car Refuses to Start
