1.Check your tyres – Checking your tyre pressure once a month can ensure you don’t end up with too much wear. Underinflated tyres can affect your steering which can be a hazard. Multiple road accidents take place because of poor tyre conditions if you are in Scotland book Fife Autocentre tyres in Dunfermline*.
2. Checking your engine oil, doing this will keep your internal parts from wearing. You can use a dipstick to do this.

3. Read your car’s manual. Whatever car you drive your maintenance schedule is inside this manual.

4. An obvious yet overlooked one, keeping your car tidy. If you’re desperate for a map etc you aren’t going to find it under a stack of yesterdays burger wrappers and magazines.

5. Clean your brake dust regularly, The dust includes lots of nasty stuff which will bake onto your tyres if left for too long.

6. Keep an eye on any warning lights and don’t ignore them! the longer you leave them the worse the problem will become!.

Do you know any more car maintenance tips?.
