How to maintain your car after a service

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

As much as we love our cars they do come with a lease on life but you can however greatly extend the lifetime of your vehicle whilst simultaneously reducing the possibility of mechanical mishaps by following a few simple steps after your car has been serviced to keep it in it’s best possible condition.

1. Check fluids and filters
No single step will help an engine run as effectively as regular oil or filter changes. A good quality lubricant will protect internal components from the damaging effects of friction, heat and other combustion byproducts. And a premium filter will prevent any particles from damaging delicate internal components.

2. Tyre pressure
Maintaining the proper tyre pressure will ensure you are always safe and can even save you money in the long run. Improperly inflated tyres don’t handle or stop as well as tyres with the correct pressure do. Tyres with the correct pressure can also increase your fuel efficiency in turn costing you less in filling up.

3. Keep it clean
Apart from performing the regular maintenance on your car another important part of taking care of your car is keeping it clean. Clearing the fast food leftovers and empty bottles out is the obvious thing to do but keeping your car clean goes beyond this. Making sure your car is washed regularly will ensure that the paint isn’t being eaten away at by the constant acid rain, sun and grease and grime our cars are subjected to on a daily basis.
