Vehicle Servicing Tips

No matter how careful we are with our cars, they still need to have regular services. The service intervals for most makes and models are every 15,000KM to 20,000KM. The better you look after your car between services, the less there is to be done next time around. There are several things you can do to ensure that there is not a lot of work that needs to be done on your car when next you have a minor or major service.

Have a Light Keychain

A rather surprising fact is that a heavy keychain can cause wear to the tumblers in the ignition, which will lead to the ignition system failing. Ensure that your keychain itself is as light as possible, and that your other keys are separate from your car keys. If you do have trouble in getting the key in the ignition, bring your car into a certified vehicle technician for a thorough inspection and feedback.

Keep a Fuel Log

Taking a few extra moments to record your car’s mileage can be crucial. The information that you collect can be of great value to both you and your technician. Several factors play a role in the fuel economy that you achieve. Keeping a fuel log helps you to detect possible issues before they become very costly.

Storing Your Car

If you do not use your car all that often, there are several things you can do to ensure that inactivity does not lead to problems. These include filling the tank to avoid condensation from building up, jacking the car up so that the weight is not on the tyres, and disconnecting the battery to stop it from draining. Also, park on a flat surface in first gear with the handbrake down to not place unnecessary tension on the cable.

Park in the Shade

The extreme heat that is experienced in almost all parts of South Africa in the summertime can surely cause damage to your car. Exposure to extreme heat can be especially bad for your car’s battery, as well as other components that operate with fluids, which can evaporate with heat.

Inspect Your Car Regularly

It is very important to regularly inspect your vehicle to see if there are any issues that you need to have seen to. This is even more important if you are planning to go on a long trip, where reliability and safety are of paramount importance. Other important inspections on your car include the oil level, state of your wiper blades, your spark plugs’ condition, and your tyres.

Keep Your Vehicle Clean

It is important to keep both the inside and outside of your vehicle clean. Dirt and bacteria can easily accumulate and infiltrate critical systems of your vehicle such as the engine and aircon system, which results in these components not functioning as they are supposed to.

Do Not Overload the Vehicle

Constantly overloading your vehicle will place excess strain on your engine as more power than normal would be required to move your car and will also have a negative impact on your fuel economy. Also, having many or large items on the roof interferes with the car’s aerodynamics by creating unwanted drag that worsens the fuel economy that you are getting.
