Did you know that there are some quick fixes to your car that you can easily do yourself? Our mechanic, Gina, shows that six common car concerns can easily be tackled in less than a minute.
1. Tyre tread check
Basic car maintenance can keep you safe and save you money. Gina explains how to check your tyre tread depth using a 20p piece.
3. Check your tyre pressure
The temperature can affect tyre pressure, especially in chillier climes, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your tyres. Gina shows how a £5 tool can give you peace of mind in under a minute.
4. Jump starting your car
Many of us have been greeted by a flat battery when we’ve come to use our car. Here, Gina shows how you can quickly get going again.
5. Fitting new windscreen wipers
A faulty windscreen wiper can cause your car to fail its MOT test, and give you poor visibility on the road. Fitting new windscreen wipers is easier than you might think, as Gina demonstrates here.
6. Topping up the engine coolant
Keeping your engine coolant topped up is important, especially in colder weather, as the antifreeze is vital for your engine. If you’re not sure how to top it up, Gina is here to help you out.
