As a leading name in a spare parts industry, Bp Auto Spares India, largest suppliers of Mahindra Scorpio Parts would like to guide you on few important things that you must check before going on a long drive or a trip. Let’s get started.
The coolant: Most cars are equipped with new age radiators which have overflow bottles with min/max water levels and are very easy to locate. Never try to open them, while the engine is hot and running. Fill up the bottle with a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze.
The Tire: The minimum tread depth as approved by the law is 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tire, all the way around. Less can earn you a hefty fine per tire. Get your tires filled up at a garage. If the pressure is wrong you’ll burn more fuel. Accurate tire pressure and you are set for the journey.
The Spare Tire: Having a flat tire is bad, but what is worse is when you have no spare tire or a spare that is missing, flat or damaged. So before taking your car for a long drive, check the jack,its handle and the wheel brace.
The engine Oil: Without the oil, you car parts will not get lubrication and your engine will overheat and self-destruct. When your engine is cold and not running, check the dipstick. Fill up via the cap at the top of the engine. Then give the oil time to run down to the sump.
The Windscreen Water Bottle: Top up your windscreen water bottle before you leave for a long journey.
Just check these 5 things and you are all set to go on a long trip.
