Tip of the day

I’m going to give you the four best tips I’ve got on how you can save money on automotive repair.

The service station attendant is pretty much a thing of the past. The problem is they used to check engine oil every time you filled up. But like I said, that doesn’t happen anymore. That’s why you should check your oil every other fill up. For an accurate reading, follow this procedure:

  1. After running your car or driving for about 15 minutes to warm the oil, park the car on a level surface, turn off the engine and wait for 10-15 minutes to allow the oil to return to the sump.
  2. Remove the dip stick wipe the dip stick clean.
  3. Insert the dipstick, make sure you push it all the way in. then pull it out again to view the oil level. It should be between the upper and lower marks on the dipstick.
  4. Top up with the vehicle’s specified oil; this can be found in the owner’s manual. If you don’t have your owner’s manual or you’re unsure, check with your trusted Automotive Engineer, I’m sure he or she will help.

Checking all your fluids on a regular basis, will ultimately save you and your car a lot of stress.

Drive safe and remember to enjoy the drive.
