The Risk Of Failing To Maintain Your Car

As a vehicle owner it is vitally important that you are carrying out regular maintenance on your vehicle. In Pune, there are many car mechanics that helps to maintain your car by offering all kind of services in their car workshop.

Without proper maintenance, your vehicle will be a lot more likely to be prone to more serious problems in the future that could lead to you lose your life also being greatly out of pocket.

It has been noticed that some of the most expensive issues that can occur as a result of not maintaining your vehicle can be found below:-

# Fixing or replacing the cylinder – the need to either fix or replace the cylinder in your vehicle is often a sign of continued neglect. Cylinder failure occurs when the correct mixture of fuel, air and sparks are missing, which leads to the cylinder overheating and then failing.

# Replacing the transmission assembly – transmission problems can be caused by regular maintenance. These problems are rare only if regular maintenance, especially if you follow your manufacturer’s guide, is carried out. Without a fully functioning transmission, your car will be unable to turn and to replacement of the transmission assembly will be required.

# Replacing the cylinder head and spark plugs – not maintaining your cylinder head and spark plugs can lead to engine failure. Misfires in your engine will cause the cylinders to heat up and fail .

#Replacing the camshaft – failure to change your oil regularly and cleaning your valves will lead to dirt and grime building up which can result in your camshaft failing. This usually only happens if regular maintenance is neglected so you shouldn’t have a problem with this assembly unless you fail to maintain your vehicle.

If these problems occurs on road the consequence of it can be very expensive risking your life. So to avoid having to pay out your life and vast sums of money, it is important to ensure you carry out vehicle maintenance duties regularly.

Bull Bars on Cars Banned in India- Here’s why

The government’s Ministry of Highways and Road Transport (MORTH) has banned bull-bars on cars and SUVs running on roads of India. The ministry has sent out a letter to the transport commissioners of all the states of the country, urging them to act against those vehicles running bull-bars.

Below are the reasons why Bull-bars are banned by Indian Government:

Bull-Bar is illegal:

bull-bars-banned

Motor Vehicle Act, Section 52 states that “No owner of a motor vehicle shall so alter the vehicle that the particulars contained in the certificate of registration are at variance with those originally specified by the manufacturer”.So fitting this accessory through the aftermarket is a crime and can lead to serious penalties.

Bull-Bars may interfere with airbags:

cars-with-airbags

During a crash event, the vehicle’s crash sensor(s) provide crucial information to the airbag electronic controller unit (ECU), including collision type, angle and severity of impact. Bull-bars can also interfere with the working of airbag sensors by upsetting the careful calculations that govern their working. This can cause airbags to deploy at the wrong time during a crash, or even not deploy at all. Both scenarios can be very dangerous to occupants of the vehicle.  This is a major reason why many automakers and insurance companies don’t approve bull-bars as accessories.

Dangerous for two-wheeler riders, pedestrians, cyclists:

Bull-bars during a crash, hurt pedestrians, cyclists and two wheeler riders, and even cause death in certain cases.

Damages chasis of a car during big accidents:

If your car met with a big accident, bull-bars not only impact the efficacy of airbags and crumple zones,but also cause the severe damage to both vehicle’s chasis.
