If your engine oil level is too high or low, it can cause trouble for your engine. To check your oil level, park your car on level ground and wait for the engine to cool. Pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean, and push it back in the dip tube all the way. Remove and have a look at where the oil level comes to. If it’s between the two dots, your oil level is good, if it’s too low, add about 100ml and wait a while before checking again.
Your engine oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle and your filter keeps the oil clean and healthy. Regularly changing your oil filter will prolong the engine’s life and keep your vehicle running smoothly for longer. You should be changing the filter every time you do oil change. We proudly use Pennzoil Oil filters.
Your engine cannot go without coolant, so it’s one of the most important maintenance checks you can do. Your coolant reservoir is usually a white semi-transparent bottle on the side of the radiator. It is marked with ‘low’ and ‘high’, indicating if you need to top up.
Tire pressure has a big impact on your car’s economy. The wrong tire pressure can cost you a lot in fuel and lead to premature tire wear. You should check this regularly using a tire pressure gauge and inflate to the recommended level which is usually marked on the driver’s door jamb.
