Hints & Tips

Identifying Leaks

If you notice a fluid leak on your car, taking note of the color can help determine the cause.

When Stuck

Keep a small shovel in your car in case you get stuck. Road flares or glow sticks can also be useful to prevent a collision.

Jack Safety

When using a jack, also use jack stands in case of failure. You should never be under a car that is only supported by a tire jack.

Cold Weather

Take a minute to let your car warm up in cold weather. This will prevent unnecessary wear on your engine.

Accident Preparation

Carry a pen, paper and disposable camera in your car for documentation should an accident occur. Make sure you get a police report and the insurance information for all parties involved.

Seat Replacement

Car seats should be replaced if they have been through an accident, as damage to the securing mechanisms may have occurred.

Fuel Filter Replacement

Your fuel filter should be replaced once every 50 000km. This is also a good time for spark plug maintenance.

Tire Practice

Know how to change your tire before an emergency. Doing a practice run will assure that you have all the necessary equipment.

Cooling Maintenance

The cooling system should be flushed and refilled once every second year so as to prevent damage over time.

Battery Maintenance

Check for wear and dirt buildup on your battery cables. This ensures proper electrical connections.

Did You Know?

Engine coolant breaks down with age, causing degradation to the cooling system of the engine. Changing aging cooling thus prevents engine decay.
