Driver Tips

Checking engine oil level

After you have allowed your vehicle’s engine to cool down, locate the oil dipstick. Pull it out and wipe it clean, then push it all the way back again. After a moment pull it out again.
If the oil is between the high and low marks, the oil level is fine.

Checking the coolant level

After you have allowed your vehicle’s engine to cool down, locate the coolant reservoir.

The level of coolant should be between the ‘low’ and ‘high’ markings outside the reservoir.

Checking the battery Terminals

If the battery terminals are not clean, it is more difficult for the current to pass through the electrical system.

Remove the terminal caps and clean each contact post with a wire brush to get a nice clean metal contact surface. Clean the terminal caps before you reattach them.

Checking the tyres

Incorrect type of pressure will affect the fuel consumption, car handling and ride comfort.
After locating the tread wear indicator of your tyres, examine the level. If it is low, your tyres will need replacing.

Checking the windscreen

Small cracks in the windscreen can be extremely dangerous. To avoid further damage, have your windscreen replaced or cracks repaired.
To avoid your vision being affected during rainy weather, ensure that your vehicle’s wipers are in good working order. Regular wiper blade replacement is recommended.

Burning too much fuel?

If your vehicle is burning  too much fuel, it may be due to a worn oxygen sensor.
