One of the most important things to do in order to ensure your car is ready for anything is by having proper basic maintenance. Doing so would give you peace of mind whether on a long road trip or taking on the hellish traffic of the metropolis. Changing fluids, checking tires and other maintenance work will not only ensure your car provides optimum performance, but also helps avoid more expensive repairs from lack of maintenance.
To help ensure your vehicle is well maintained, Rapide Auto Service Experts has listed down some key items to check the next time you have your vehicle serviced.
Replenishing your car’s fluids every now and then is vital for a safe driving experience. Some of the fluids in your car include coolant, antifreeze, and power steering. It’s pretty simple to check the levels of your fluids as they have gauges or dipsticks that you can use if ever you can’t see the container directly.
Even though batteries are much less demanding in terms of maintenance compared to other parts, they cause a great deal when they malfunction. Batteries are prone to mineral formations and hazardous leaks. In any cases, always bring with you a jump starter or a battery tester round in a case of an emergency.
3) Spark Plugs
Your spark plugs need checking too – a worrisome one causes faster fuel consumption and in some cases may lead to a breakdown. If you suspect that there is something wrong with yours, it would do you good to replace them.
Your brakes may make the difference between life and death in an emergency situation – that is why you should always ensure that you’re driving with healthy brakes. That is why Rapide Auto Service Experts recommends to its customers Bendix. Bendix, or more formally known as FMP Group (Australia) Pty Ltd, is Australia’s largest automotive friction material manufacturer. Bendix is partnered with one of the biggest aerospace companies in the world, Honeywell Inc. (USA) that allows them to manufacture state-of-the-art products whose reputation is regarded by leading commercial and industrial companies in South East Asia, United States, Canada, Japan, and countries in the Middle East.
