Going away on a road trip this Christmas getaway? Don’t forget to pre-check your car!
A basic car check before any road trip can potentially save you money and help reduce the risk of breakdowns during your road trip. A quick 15-minute check is all it takes and it’s quite easy to do. It's a good idea to perform them regularly.
Locate your dipstick!
Wipe, re-dip and check the oil.
MAX Level – tells you the max fill level for oil in your car. Your oil level should be at or near the max mark. Never go over!
MIN Level – tells you the min fill level for oil in your car.
If your oil is near or below the min mark, you require a top-up or an oil change. Recommended to schedule a service with your mechanic for an oil change (if unsure, seek mechanical advice).
Top up on fluid if needed or take your car to your mechanic to check it all out for you. One of our recommendations if you are from the Western Suburbs of Sydney, Cilia's Automotive Solutions!
There is nothing worse than a breakdown that could have been avoided to ruin your getaway. This quick pre-check is a recommendation from us. If you are unsure of anything, we advise you to ask your mechanic.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
