Vehicle maintenance tips 1

  • Rotate your tyres

    Tyres must be rotated every 8,000 Kms. By rotating your tyres regularly, you’ll ensure yourself a smoother and safer ride. The front tyres carry more than 60% of your car’s weight; consequently, front tyres wear down faster than the rear ones. Also, turning wears the front tires at different rates. In Sri Lanka, since we drive on the left side, we generally take right turns faster than we do left turns. This puts more load on the left front tyre which results in the left tyre wearing faster than your right. After thousands of kilometers of driving, you end up with uneven tread wear. For maximum traction, the best tyres should be kept on the rear wheels of the vehicle, whether it is front- or rear-wheel drive
    Rotating tyres equalizes these natural wear patterns by changing their positions. And more importantly, you’ll save money in the long run by extending the life of your tyres.

  • Check your oil level

    If the oil is too high or too low, it can cause trouble for your engine. Park on level ground and wait until the engine cools down after driving. Then take the dipstick, wipe it clean, and push it all the way back in until the top of it is seated properly in the dip tube again. Wait a moment then pull it out. The first time you pull the dipstick out, it will have oil all over it and it will be difficult to tell where the level is. You need to wipe it on a rag to get a clean dipstick, then dip it back into the oil to get a good reading. Check the level of the oil. Make sure that it’s between the high and low marks. Add a little if it’s too low.
