Love your car?

Here are some tips to show some love to your car:

1) The Engine

– Change the oil.
– Change the oil filter, air filter and fuel filter.
– Check the PCV valve for proper operation.
– Check the spark plugs and spark plug wires.
– Very Hard – 10.5 and higher gpg.

2) Change the oil

Change the oil filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Check the PCV valve for proper operation.
Check the spark plugs and spark plug wires.
Very Hard – 10.5 and higher gpg.

3) The Transmission

A regular checkup of the transmission fluid will keep your car shifting smoothly.

4) The Battery

Keeping the battery clean and secured so it doesn’t vibrate, keeping connections clean and tight at the terminals, and checking the water level (if necessary).

5) The Emission System

Your emission system runs almost the entire length of your vehicle. You should have your emission system inspected every year.

6) The Brake System

Anytime you notice something irregular about your brakes, it’s a good idea to have them checked out. Chirps, continuous squeals and grinding sounds almost always mean that it’s time for new brake pads or shoe

7) Steering and suspension system

checking the power steering fluid, listening for unusual noises while the vehicle is in motion and a visual inspection of all major suspension components including the shocks, struts and springs.

8) The Cooling System

Check the coolant levels in the reservoir tanks, check the hoses for wear and tear and provide a flush-and-fill service, which drains dirty fluid and replace it.

Happy Driving!

5 Common car problems and how to avoid them

There are so many things that can go wrong with a car. With so many components and more electrical devices being added to cars every year, it’s important that you have a good car repair service that you can call on when you need assistance. By arranging regular car service and repairs you can avoid some of the more common car problems and ensure your car performs well all year round.

car problems

• The Flat Tyre: A flat tyre is one of the most frustrating problems you can experience on the road especially if you don’t know how to change a tyre or do not have a spare tyre available. This is also the kind of problem that often occurs when you are least prepared to deal with it. By having tyre checks carried out on a regular basis you can help to avoid damage to your tyre.

• The Dead Battery: A dead battery is one of the problems that a driver dreads the most. Without a working battery there is no way of getting the engine started or powering any of the auxiliary units on board. The good news is that you can avoid battery problems by arranging a battery test and replacement battery if necessary. Don’t take the chance of being stuck by the side of the road or in a parking lot with no power.

• Ignition Problems: There are many problems that can prevent a car’s engine from starting. If you have requested a battery test then the entire ignition system will be checked. By taking your car to your local car repair shop you can ensure your car will start first time, every time.

• Leaks or Liquids at Low Levels: It is so important that you keep oil, water and brake fluids topped off at all times. Oil and water should be checked every 2 weeks if you drive your car frequently or every 2 months if you drive less frequently. Brake fluid is also essential for ensuring efficient braking and will ensure your batteries last for as long as possible.

• Electrical Component Failure: Our vehicles rely so heavily on electrical components these days. From your car’s onboard computer to parking sensors, you won’t know how much you rely on these systems until they fail. Again, your car mechanic can give your vehicle the once over so that any potential problems can be detected before you set off on the road.

It’s easy to arrange car service and repairs online and to book full car checks or checks of specific components.

Tips to save fuel and money

Across the country petrol prices are cover higher and higher resulting in motoring costs being at an all-time high. We have some fuel saving tips to make your tank go that much further.

Save fuel

1. Regular check-ups: Service your car regularly using a reputable and recognized local car service centre. Engines in modern cars are a lot more complicated than they used to be and these need to be correctly maintained.

2. Check tyres: At least once a month check your tyre pressure and make sure your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure. Tyres which are slightly under inflated can increase your fuel costs. Cold tyres give a false low pressure reading so check the tyre pressure while they are still warm – take a short drive.

3. Reduce weight: Efficiency is reduced if carrying unnecessary excess weight. Remove roof racks, cycle tracks and storage boxes when not in use as these affect the aerodynamics of your car.

4. Temperature: Warming the car before setting off on a journey burns fuel. However, a warm engine is much more efficient than a cold one. Where possible try and make all your trips in succession so the engine does not get cold in between stops.

5. Forward planning: Spend time planning your trip and try and avoid peak times and the congestion that comes with it. Make sure you know exactly where you are going, if you get lost then you end up wasting fuel.

6. Reduce speed: Reducing your average speed by a few mph can have a noticeable effect on your fuel consumption and more importantly on your wallet! If you drive at 70 mph you burn 9% more fuel than when you drive at 60 mph. If your average motorway speed is 80 mph you are burning 25% more fuel than when driving at 70 mph.

7. Nice and easy: A significant amount of fuel can be saved if drivers try and read the road that lies ahead. For example, try slowing down earlier when approaching traffic lights. This avoids unnecessary acceleration, heavy braking and then quick acceleration when pulling away from the lights. If your car becomes stationary for more than a few minutes then switch off the engine to save fuel. However, the best fuel efficient tip is to drive more ‘gently’, avoiding heavy acceleration and using the gearbox to gain a higher speed more quickly. Always try changing gear before reaching 2,500 rpm if driving a petrol and 2,000 rpm if driving a diesel car.

8. Keep it cool: Most modern cars are fitted with air conditioning. When the air conditioning is on it places considerable demand on the engine, so when not required switch it off. However, if the air conditioning is left off for long periods of time, harmful bacteria can build up in the system; this can result in expensive repairs. This can be avoided, try and use the system for a few minutes every two or three weeks.

However, if you are thinking of changing your car to fit in with your lifestyle, you may be better off purchasing a smaller, more fuel efficient model. The newer the model of car the more fuel efficient it will be (this all depends on the car).
