Knowing a few basics about your car, can save you time and headaches. And you will have more confidence when you hit the road.
Here is a list of car basics:
- Tires— you need to know how to change a tire. Learn how to use a tire pressure gauge. Check your tires for even/uneven wear, tread depth, bulges, cracks or other issues.
- Oil— learn how to check it yourself. Kudos to you if you learn how to check your own brake fluid, power steering fluid, and coolant.
- Dash lights— know what they mean. Your owners manual will have a section on the dash lights and what they mean for your vehicle. If you have questions, you can always ask the professionals at Bob’s Auto Service— 608-782-1375.
