Keep Your Car In Tip-top Shape

TIP! Only choose an A.S.

You may feel frustrated when you have to deal with repairs on your car. You don’t have to feel this way. Read on to learn more about dealing with your own auto repairs.

TIP! Once a repair shop has finished with your car, go on a quick spin to make sure things are working properly. If you don’t, you may find that you paid for nothing.

Have a battery charger in your car at all times. Dead batteries happen a lot, and you can provide assistance to others if you keep a charger on hand. Find out where to connect the charger to your car.

TIP! Before you actually take your car to a mechanic, try to assess what the problem is first. This may save you a ton of money in the long run by preventing you from being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous mechanic.

An emergency kit is a crucial item to have handy in your car. Your kit should include jumper cables, tire changing tools and maybe some extra gas. Blankets, matches, a flashlight, extra batteries, cans of food and some water help, too.

TIP! You should always keep a jack and a spare tire with you at all times. Most vehicles come with them, but you want to check anyway.

If you have to take your vehicle to a repair shop, arm yourself with information and ask questions. You should ask things specific to the problem that has arisen and how you can take preventive action going forward. An ounce of prevention can save you a lot of money over time.

TIP! Wiper blades are a very important component to your car. If your windshield wipers cause streaks or make noises, they may need replacing.

Check your radiator frequently. Let the car idle for a short period first, but only long enough to let the fluid circulate. Never, ever open the radiator while the car is still on. Use a dipstick to check the amount of fluid in the radiator. You should also make sure to mix coolant fluid with water before you pour it into your radiator.

TIP! Always shop around and get a second opinion before paying for an expensive repair. There are many unscrupulous mechanics who are not upfront about their costs and policies.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself well with your car’s manual. This will help you speak intelligently to a technician about your car when it is time to take it in. You may even find, when you read the manual, that what you think is an issue is easily fixed.

TIP! You should know and pay attention to your dashboard’s warning lights. They were put there for your assistance, so use them for that.

Now, you know how to deal with car repairs successfully. Know that you can take control, and don’t allow yourself to be victimized by an auto repair shop. This article will help you know what to do whenever your vehicle requires fixing.
