5 Tips to keep your engine in good condition
A vehicle is made up of different parts and components that make it what it is, but there is not more important component than the engine. This is what literally powers the vehicle and is the most used and abused part thus, it is in every owner’s best interest to keep it in a good working condition to avoid unnecessary wear on parts and worse of all a breakdown on the road.

1. Always check your fluids
Your engine relies on these fluids in order to run properly: Coolant and Engine Oil, these 2 fluids are the bloodline of your engine. Running with little to no coolant could mean your engine can overheat and worse blow a hole through the radiator, always make sure your coolant tank and reservoir are filled to the prescribed levels. While running with low oil levels could be catastrophic for your engine because this is what keeps the internal combustion parts from grinding and fusing with one another, make sure your oil levels are on point to avoid serious engine damage.
2. Know your vehicle’s inside and out
Whenever you purchase a vehicle it automatically comes with the manufacturers vehicle manual. In this manual is everything you need to know about your vehicle from how to operate the stereo system to what specific tires you need to use. So its important that as an owner, to know this owners manual and treat it as your guide when you have questions about your vehicle.
3. Remember your engine oil change schedule

The prescribed interval between oil change is usually between 5,000-10,000 Kilometers, this depends on the type of oil you use Mineral, Semi-Synthetic or Fully Synthetic with the latter being the most long lasting of the 3.
4. Have your filters checked
