Need to sell your car?
Make sure your car has a full service record. A car that shows maintenance records is worth more than one which doesn't. #CarServiceBellville

These 2 great videos take you through the step by step process of checking & adding radiator fluid. Why do you need to know this?

Your car’s entire cooling system is built around the radiator and also includes the water pump, hoses, belts, fan, thermostat, and sensors. Its job is to move coolant around the cylinder heads and valves, absorbing their heat before returning the coolant to the radiator to safely dissipate the heat.

This only works if there is a certain level of fluid in your radiator, meaning you need to always be checking the level of coolant and add more whenever necessary.

To get more out of your tyres you will have to check your car's wheel alignment regularly and not just when you feel a shudder or shake.

Arrive Alive recommends that alignment should be checked every 10,000 km or 6 months, whichever occurs first, unless you know that you have hit a pothole, or some other object, in which case it should be done immediately as a precaution.

COMMONLY FOUND COUNTERFEIT AUTO SPARE PARTS


Brakes – Cheaply made brake pads and the shoes that come with them are usually made of metal, which is harder, which causes the pads and shoes to wear down sooner than the authentic parts would. The result can cause your car not to break properly and/or take longer to stop. Counterfeit brake pads and shoes exert additional pressure on the adjoining components, such as the drums, which causes them to wear out faster as well. Overall, this is a dangerous situation and could certainly add to the risk of collisions.

Oil filters – Top quality oil filters come with a check valve to ensure good oil pressure when you start the car. Cheap counterfeit oil filters don’t have this valve, which allows dirt deposits onto the engine.

Batteries – An inexpensive battery is most likely not a very reliable one because batteries are usually rated according to their cold-cranking amps, which in this case would be lower.

Ignition parts – The components in the ignition, including the spark plugs, may look just like the original ones, but if they’re counterfeit, they will be different internally.

The driving public is becoming more educated about the service and repair of their vehicles. There is a demand for top quality auto service and this means top quality genuine parts are what customers insist upon of any reputable auto repair shop.

Your car mechanic should not only check all the inner workings, but also check the outside of the car.

They look for parts that may be getting worn out, giving you advance notice that they soon may need replacement.

The service team will usually do an oil change, which includes replacing the oil filter in the engine during a routine service visit.

If you’re driving and feel your car drifting to one side and you’re forced to turn the steering wheel from its usual center position for driving straight ahead, your wheels are most likely out of alignment. This may have been caused by hitting a curb while trying to park or maybe a deep pothole while driving. #CarServiceBellville
