Keeping Your Motor in Top Condition

Posted by Ben Davidson about 1 years ago

Your car is likely to be the second biggest investment you make in your lifetime after your home. So it’s not all too surprising that you’re going to want to keep it in relatively good condition. If you’re planning on keeping it for the foreseeable future, you’re going to want to minimise the number of repairs you’ll face and have to fork out for. If you’re only planning on keeping it for a short period of time, you’re going to want to maintain a high resale value. But this doesn’t necessarily come naturally. Cars require a whole lot of care and attention to remain in tip top condition. So, what do you need to do to give your vehicle the best chances of remaining as close to new as possible? Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started off in the right direction.


Stick to Regular Checks


You need to have your car checked over at set periods of time to ensure that it is still roadworthy. But you don’t need to stick to these assigned time slots. You can check your car into a garage for a good once over whenever you please. This will see a professional eye take a look at whether your vehicle has any signs of wear, damage, or potential upcoming repair jobs. Tackling issues sooner rather than later is much more effective than trying to fix major faults once they’ve already established themselves.


Use Anti-Freeze


Anti-freeze is essential if the weather gets bad and your car is being left or being used in cold conditions. If your windscreen is frozen up, you need to make sure to de-ice it before getting started. Let the car warm up and then make sure you have anti-freeze from www.peakhd.com in your car’s coolant reservoir. The ice will be gone and you’ll be able to drive safely while seeing clearly in next to no time! What’s more? You won’t damage your windscreens by hastily scraping ice off or pouring hot water onto it (which can make the glass crack).


Clean It


Cleaning a car isn’t necessarily the most fun job. But it does prevent a build up of dirt that could eventually chip or dull your vehicle’s exteriors and stain your interiors. So, make sure to clean your car on a regular basis - inside and out. If you don’t have much time on your hands, remember you can always use a professional car cleaning service. Others will be able to give your set of wheels a complete scrub down and have it gleaming before you know it!


As you can see, you need to focus on keeping your car in full working order as well as in top aesthetic shape - this is going to take a fair amount of work. But at the end of the day, when your vehicle looks and feels brand new, even years down the line, it’ll be more than worth your efforts.
