- Inspect Oil/ fluid level of engine, brakes, clutch, power steering and auto transmission and others.
Adequate fluid level is very important for the health of the car and for good performance. Hence we should ensure car has a sufficient amount of fluids so that all the components and cooling system perform its function at its best.
- Look if there are any signs of corrosion around the battery.
Corrosion around around the battery terminals is due to the hydrogen gases that are released from the acid in the battery. We receives heavy enquiry from Doers car Service Bangalore Customers, who reports that there is thick layer of white powder got deposited on terminal and many times the terminal become so weak that it cuts off so hence it’s important to get the vehicle terminal clean on regular basis. If the corrosion is on positive terminal then it is due to overcharging and if the corrosion is on negative side is due to undercharging. If there are signs of corrosion then it is time to take the car to workshop for electrical check up. You can also book the Doers Doorstep Car service now who would come to your location and get this fixed for you.
