Inspecting the Vehicle Regularly

 

There are several fluids that will need to be checked in your vehicle. These include the oil, brake fluid, antifreeze, transmission fluid, and the power steering fluid. To check many of those levels, you will need to locate the reservoir for each fluid. The liquid should be at the line indicated on the reservoir. If it is not, make sure to fill it to the line. If you find that you have to fill the reservoir frequently, it could indicate a leak in the system.

 

Always make sure that the brakes are inspected on a regular basis. The brakes are important because they allow you to slow down and stop when you are driving. This helps to avoid an accident incase someone slams on the brakes in front of you, or if an animal jumps in the road. If you notice the brake pedal vibrating when you apply it, which could mean there is an issue with the brakes. Any odd noises or grinding sounds you hear can also mean that the brakes should be inspected. If the brake pad starts to wear down, it will cause friction with the brake rotor. This will the produce the noise, as well as any vibrating feelings you notice.

 

The systems in your car include the heat and the air conditioning. Your engine needs to run the car, but you also need to be able to ride in comfort as you go. The air might need to be recharged or you might need to make sure there are no leaks in the hoses in case the cool air isn’t getting to you.
