Tips & Tricks
Today’s automobile is a sophisticated, computer-controlled machine that requires less care and is more dependable than its predecessors. But to keep your car running efficiently, regularly scheduled maintenance is key to reliable performance and can mean savings down the road. Without regular maintenance, you can shorten the life of your vehicle and void its warranty. Bromspec Motor Works recommend a five-point preventive maintenance program to keep your car running smoothly.
BRAKES
An unusual noise or a gentle tug on the steering wheel when stopping are common warning signs that it’s time to check the brakes. A good rule of thumb is to check the brakes at the 10,000 Km mark when tires should be rotated.

OIL CHANGE
Unless your driving is mostly highway kilometres, today’s engines will run better and last longer with clean oil every 10,000 Km or six months, including a filter change. A $300 oil change can save you from costly engine repairs later..
COOLANT SYSTEMS
Maintaining your car’s coolant system will maximise efficiency and increase the life of your cooling system components. Replace coolant at the intervals recommended by the manufacturer, regardless of the condition of the coolant as you cannot gauge the effectiveness of coolant based on its appearance. Use only products recommended by the manufacturer of your car. Never mix coolant products. Always drain the cooling system and flush completely if switching brands or if the coolant appears. Regularly check hoses for signs of obvious expansion, excessive softness, or a crunchy feel on squeezing. Have them replaced if any of these are apparent.

BATTERY
As part of your car’s regular maintenance, ask your technician to make sure the battery cover is in place and the battery is firmly anchored. Most important, clean the battery of corrosion, especially the electrical posts.
WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Correct alignment of your cars wheels ensure that your car drives the way it was designed to and makes it more enjoyable to drive. Australian roads can be detrimental to wheel alignment particularly driving over potholes or clipping roundabouts can put your wheel alignment out of line causing poor handling and premature wear to tyres. This wear is not always obvious when it occurs on the inside edge of the tyre. A photo of a real extreme case can be seen opposite.
