Klerksdorp News has created a page for the community to assist in the maintaining of their vehicles. This page will assist you with technical tips on what to do and not to do. Where to get your vehicle resprayed after a minor fender bender or where to go for the fitment of a new battery.

 

Services

Oil changes and air filters are very important parts of engine maintenance; however, a thorough inspection of all engine, transmission, cooling, brakes and suspension components should also be performed regularly. The owner’s manual provides a routine auto maintenance schedule based on engine mileage for most cars.

 

Tyres

Tyre maintenance for motor vehicles is based on several factors. The Main reason for tyre replacement is friction from moving contact with road surfaces, causing the tread on the outer perimeter of tyres to eventually wear away.

 

Windscreens & side Mirrors

Windscreen Maintenance entails regularly cleaning your Windscreen to remove dirt that may scrip in and slow down your visibility while driving. As a good practice, clean your mirror and Windscreen each morning before your set off on the road to work. Clean the interior & exterior section of your Windscreen.

 

Fuel

For the day-to-day running and routine operations of your vehicle, few things are as important as choosing the proper grade of octane for the unleaded fuel you put in your fuel tank.  The octane rating is a measure of the gasoline’s ability to resist engine knock.
