Vehicle Battery Maintenance

Similar to toys, every vehicle has a battery and similar to every battery, the vehicle’s battery too drains out. The battery of the vehicle should be looked after and taken care of to avoid any unnecessary damages or any unfortunate situations. Here are some effective tips to take care of your vehicle’s battery:

  • Oil and oil filter

It is important to change the oil and oil filter regularly. The user manual of the vehicle will clearly specify the exact time frame this should be changed. However, it is recommended to change them every 3,000 – 4,000 miles. It this is done without professional help, ensure to dispose the used oil in a proper manner without harming the surrounding or the environment.

  • Fluids of the vehicle

It is important to understand the functions of each fluid type the vehicle needs to function. These could include; brake, power steering, transmission, transaxle, windshield washer and antifreeze fluids. The vehicle manual would specify on the usage of these fluids and their required quantities.

  • Air pressure levels

The air pressure level in tires is another important aspect to consider. This should be checked at least once a month to avoid any sudden road hazards and to minimize battery damage.

  • Lights and blades

These include headlights, turn signals, brake lights and taillights and ensure to replace the windshield if it has been damaged or torn.

  • Warnings Signs

Be cautious of any warning lights or signs. Such warnings could indicate an internal issue and should be taken care. Avoid using the vehicle without proper inspection when there are such warning signs.

Be safe at all times!
