Fixing your car is priority one. Being stuck without a working vehicle makes getting around very difficult. However, you do not necessarily have to fork out hundreds of dollars to fix your car. You can do many simple repairs yourself.
Don’t underestimate how important it is to keep an emergency kit inside your car. You should put together a kit that includes the tools you need to change a tire, charge your battery and put more gas in your tank. You may also want to add some batteries, a flashlight and a few blankets in the event that you break down at night.
Check your radiator frequently. To do this, you need to allow your car to run several minutes, and then turn off the engine. You are now ready to open up your hood. Never open the radiator while the car is on. Look at the coolant you have in your radiator by checking it with a dipstick but remember that coolant usually needs to be mixed with water before putting it into your vehicle.
Ask the tech if they’ve done work on your model and make of car before. If they have worked on the same type vehicle you have, they will know which areas to check first on your car.
You don’t want rust to attack your car so take the time to wash it on a regular basis. Although all cars rust at some point in time, it is possible to delay this from occurring by washing off salt and chemicals immediately. Protect your paint with regular waxing.
You can fix your car on your own sometimes, while other times, you’ll need a mechanic. In many cases, you can solve your car problems in your own driveway. Apply what you’ve just learned, and keep your car running its best.
