While not all of us are made to be DIY mechanics – I am certainly not – there are a few simple car checks that almost anyone can manage that will help keep your car happy and healthy between services.
These 5 simple car checks could save you from huge repair bills. Running too low on oil, for example, can cause your engine to seize up and need complete replacement. Ouch.
Here’s what they are:
- Check the oil
- Check the water (coolant)
- Fill up with windscreen wash
- Check your lights
- Keep your tyres inflated and in good condition
As well as keeping your car healthy between services, these checks will help keep you out of trouble with the police. Having faulty lights or worn-out tyres is an offence – so it pays to take care.
