While we would never advise you to allow an unskilled or unqualified person to carry out any repairs to your vehicle, there are many periodic checks that you can carry out yourself.

Avoiding expensive car repairs

Just by carrying out a few regular visual inspections and keeping your vehicle’s essential fluids topped up, you may be able to prevent expensive repair issues from developing. Sometimes a quick look under the bonnet while topping up the fluid levels draws your attention to something that could become a potential problem if left unattended. It’s a good idea to get familiar with the contents of the owner’s handbook, or in the absence of one, check on the manufacturer’s website. 

Please take some time to look over tips below and if you are in any doubt please contact one of our team who will be happy to advise you on your best course of action.

Basic tips

It is a good idea to turn the car air-conditioning on at least once a week, even during winter, particularly with older cars (without automatic climate control). The benefits of doing this are to circulate oil within the air-conditioning system keeping seals lubricated and reduce gas loss. Turning the air-conditioning on when demisting the windscreen will help clear the windscreen quickly.
