Daily car care tips

Maintaining your car is a daily process; follow these tips from autocarbazar to maintain...It’s very important

It’s very important to take care of your car on a daily basis to make sure that it’s in perfect running condition and never surprises you with breakdowns. And this is not difficult, all that is required of you is to follow some basic steps By making sure that you drive carefully, the life of your tire extends dramatically. Ensure that you move your car in a slow motion and not the way an F1 car starts. Avoid bad patches on the road, ensure that the sidewalls don’t rub against the curb while parking and lastly, you are not a racer... do not burn rubber! During the first 10-15 minutes of driving for the day, make sure to build the acceleration and not to rev the engine as these first few minutes have to potential to create the maximum damage Letting the engine idle in the morning is one of the worst possible things to do. When an engine operated in lower temperature, complete fuel combustion doesn’t take place. It results in soot being deposited on the cylinder walls, contamination of oil and damage to engine components.

Refrain from gunning your engine when you start the car. It’s the easiest and most efficient way to add wear and tear to the engine. People especially do this in winter months and should be avoided. Avoid making regular short trips. The maximum damage that occurs in a car is when you crank up the engine and the first few minutes before the engine reaches its optimal working temperature. So walk to nearby places or club your short trips to increase the life of your car. Put less strain on your engine and automatic transmission by shifting to neutral at red lights. Otherwise, the engine is still working to push the car even while it’s stopped. In extreme climate conditions, try to remain at a safe and constant speed. When the temperature is extreme, and if there is friction in the way you accelerate, the engine will get more wear and you will find the car being taken for repairs more often than normal.

An important thing to remember while steering is not to hold it for more than a few seconds at its extremities. By doing so the power-steering pump gets damaged leading to a grunting noise while steering the car.
