They say that tough times don’t last tough people do, similarly vehicles that are well maintained and regularly checked upon have more tendency to show signs of robustness while on road. This is a crucial time for all of us. We not only need to keep ourselves safe and fit but also we need to keep a check on things that were frequently used by us and are now being less used like our motor cars.
This article will help you understand the changing dynamic of car care and how can you take care of your vehicle at home.
Your car’s MOT
The MOT services have also been postponed in many areas of London because of the new rules imposed by the government. This definitely means that it is our responsibility to keep a regular check on the performance of our vehicle while we stay at home. If we forget about our car’s health – we will have a tough time passing MOT when this facility is restored. One way to manage your MOT right now is to get it done from a safe centre where safety measures are not compromised. You can opt for MOT service right now – by booking it online through Iverson Tyres Ltd (02085664666). Their garage has safe operations.
Check your engine
We know that the major purpose of the vehicle is to be driven, however this pandemic has affected that too and many of our cars have been left isolated in garages. If cars are not being driven daily, we know that it can have a negative impact on the engine of the car. The engine gets power when fluids inside the car are circulated while the car is given charge. If you want your engine to remain in shape, you need to leave your car running for 15 minutes daily so that proper energy is transferred to it.
Wash your car
You may think that car is kept safe in the garage or parking lot if left there for days. However this might not be the case! Rain, wind and other changing weather conditions can cause dirt and other unnecessary material to accumulate on the car surface or even slide in the internal part of the car. Therefore thoroughly washing your car once a week with the help of water mixed with detergents will prevent needless dust particles from accumulating on the car’s surface. Also using water on the exterior part of the car can help it cool down if it is parked in a heated area.
Check tyre pressures
Not moving the vehicle for a longer period will cause the air pressure in the car tyres to fall short. You might not notice it until you need to go out in an emergency to get groceries. An easy solution to this is to check the air pressure in the tyres once a week and if you think the tyre has gone flat you can use a tyre pressure pump to inflate your tyres while staying home.
