Changing Engine Oil

Oil is the essential lubricant that keep your engine running smoothly. It lubricates all the moving parts of your engine and keeps them cool by lowering friction and heat. Eventually, oil gets dirty and contaminants build up causing oil to become less slippery and thick and dirty, which means your engine is not getting the lubrication it needs. This will eventually cause your engine to wear out, overheat and eventually break down. Replacing your engine oil and oil filter regularly will prevent these issues from happening. It will help keep your engine lubricated properly and extend the life of your car.

7 reasons to fix up your old car & not buy a new one!

  1. Depreciation is often the biggest cost in owning a newer car.
    Cars aren't an Investment. The newer the car, the more you lose in depreciation. Sometimes thousands of dollars per year.
  2. Finance costs for newer cars are high.
    Over the period of paying off a car, you will have paid for nearly twice over.
  3. Parts are more expensive and harder to obtain on newer cars
    Ports ore often only available through expensive main agents and often have to be ordered from overseas
  4. Car insurance costs are generally higher for newer cars
    A new car needs to be fully Insured, especially if financed, as It Is more expensive to replace if stolen or damaged.
  5. You may just be getting someone else's problems.
    Unless you buy brand new, you are still buying a used car with a certain degree of wear and tear. All cars periodically need brakes, tyres, suspension and scheduled maintenance.
  6. Parts availability is very good for cars ten years and older .
    This is the age of vehicles that the aftermarket suppliers and car wreckers mostly cater for.
  7. Japanese cars can do 500,000 kilometres.

7 signs your brakes need inspection

  1. Feel any drag? Be alert to brakes that seem to stick, wheels that are hot or an engine that seems to lose power. The brakes may be failing to release; alternately, the condition could reverse, leaving you with no brakes at all.
  2. There's a pull. Does the vehicle pull to the left or right when brakes are applied? Make sure tyres are fully inflated. If the pull persists, it's time for a professional to check the brakes.
  3. Stomping on the brakes? It should not take extreme muscle power to make the brakes work. This "hard pedal" symptom, when the brake pedal nearly touches the floor before engaging, can indicate brake trouble.
  4. Brake light is on. There are several reasons the brake light is illuminated on the vehicle dashboard. The problem could be simple: brake fluid could be low. Or, it could involve a hydraulic system failure.
  5. Shake, shake, shake. Can you feel the brake pedal, steering wheel or your entire vehicle vibrating, pulsating or shaking? This may indicate a problem with disc brake rotors or a faulty steering mechanism.
  6. There's a racket. Brakes should operate with very little noise. Don't ignore squeals, screeches, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bangs. Your brakes may need repair.
  7. Grab. "Touchy" brakes that grab with the least bit of pressure may indicate that brake linings are contaminated with grease or oil, or a component is broken and could fail.

Brakes wear out and will eventually need to be replaced. How quickly depends on factors unique to you: your driving habits, type of vehicle and when and where you drive.
