Oil lubricates almost every other component in the engine.
This includes coolant, transmission (gearbox) oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid and windscreen washer water.
Adjusting your tyre pressure and/or rotating your tyres helps to ensure the tread wears more evenly.
Assessing the condition of brake pads and rotors as well as drums and shoes (if relevant). Your braking system is a critical safety element, so regular maintenance is important to avoid accidents.
This includes looking at your tie-rod ends, ball joints, bushes, CV joints, springs, and shock absorbers.
This includes looking at your spark plugs, belts and the air filter to ensure that your engine is running as efficiently as possible.
Inspecting the cabin filter, which stops dust, leaves and dirt from getting into the interior of the vehicle and the heating system. The air compressor belt will also be checked if the vehicle has air conditioning.
Substandard tyres, brakes, suspension and/or steering results in poor handling which compromises your safety and fuel efficiency. If your engine is not running well your fuel and oil use may be higher than ideal.
