A vehicle is indeed a very complex machine. A car is made of around 20000 components where each component plays a major role in the car’s performance. Buying a vehicle is an easy task but if you are unaware of its functionalities, you might face daily problems.
There are certain things a Car owner must know. These days it has become very easy to understand different things about the vehicle. Earlier mechanics were called for every small problem. But the time has changed as vehicle owners are now becoming aware of the small things that can be fixed by them.
In this article, we have mentioned 5 such basic things that a vehicle owner must know. These include;
- Vehicle Fluids
- Spare Tire
- Car Battery
Let’s read it in detail:-
If you want your vehicle to run smoothly for a long time, you must take care of different kinds of fluids. These fluids give extra strength to the vehicles and all its components. Different kinds of vehicle fluids include;
- Power Steering Fluid
- Brake Fluid
- Engine Oil, etc.
Engine Oil is perhaps the most important of them. You must change the Engine Oil and other fluids over a prescribed period of time. It removes any kind of rigidity from these parts and gives them extra strength.
Keeping a spare tire should never be considered as a useless expense. Having a spare tire saves efforts, times, and money during tough times. If you have a flat tire and you have a spare tire in the car, you would definitely get yourself into a panic situation. In that situation, all you have to do is to change the spare tire with the flat tire to keep going. You must check the air pressure of both the spare tire and other tires before taking your vehicle on the road.
The engine is undoubtedly the most important component of the vehicle. You must change the Engine Fluids at the prescribed time. Maintaining an engine is very important as it gives your car many more years of life. A damaged engine could even result in fire sometimes. Hence it becomes really important for every driver to maintain the engine of the car.
It is practically not possible to drive a vehicle without a battery. The battery gives life to almost every component of the car. A damaged battery could leave you in a terrible situation. Hence a vehicle owner must know how to change or charge a car battery during tough situations. To keep the battery functional for a longer period of time, always remember to switch off all the lights of the vehicle before parking it in your garage.
Another important part of the vehicle is the breaks. Driving a vehicle with faulty brakes could result in accidents and deadly mishaps. Hence a vehicle owner must regularly maintain the brakes (both rear and front) by using Brakes Oil after a fixed time. You must always check the brakes of the car before taking it on the road to avoid any kind of mishap.
These were just 5 basic things out of many that a vehicle owner must know. These things might sound obvious but would save your time and life during tough situations. However, there are certain things that are not operable by a layman. Hence, a mechanic must be called during these situations.
