10 IVM Car Tips and Maintenance

  1. The Engine: Oil is essential to your car engine, it is the first thing you should do to keep your car in good shape and changing it every three months is highly recommended. Keep all the fluids, clean and topped up. Engine oil cools down and lubricates the engine. Driving with very low oil level can cause engine problem.


  1. Check Coolant And Radiator: If an Engine is allowed to get too hot, it can cause a number of internal problems. This is because the moving metal parts of your car can melt and fuse together due to overheating


  1. Tires: Defective tires can pose a danger once you are on the road. Tires are very important so always check the pressures and tread depth including spare tires. Try to avoid potholes and debris on the road


  1. Battery: Ensure the battery cable connections are tight and the terminals are free from corrosion. If the battery is more than 3 years old it is a good idea to have it tested to determine how much life it has left.


  1. Wiper Blades: A good wiper blades should completely clear the glass with each swipe. Make sure your wiper blade is functional you may not know when a heavy downpour will meet on your journey.


  1. The Transmission: Your transmission makes your car move by bringing power source from the engine to the wheels. A regular checkup of the transmission fluid will keep your car running smoothly.


  1. Drive with Lighter Loads: Rid your car of unnecessary loads. Do not overload your car. Avoid carrying items on your roof.


  1. The Brake: Many of today’s cars have disc brake in the front and drum brake in the back. And the brakes rely on friction, which is supplied by either a brake pad or a brake shoe to slow and stop your car. Your car owner’s manual will provide a maintenance schedule designed to keep your brake in good condition. But at very least, you should have your brake inspected every year.


  1. Headlights: Always make sure your headlight are working properly, a clean damp piece of cloth can help clean the haze making it to shine brighter.


  1. Have Wheel Alignment Checked: It is very important to have your wheel alignment checked. Not having your wheels aligned affects the suspension of your car.
