Practices That Could Shorten The Life Span of Your Car in Uganda
Not following the recommended maintenance schedule for your car will shorten the life of your car. If you do not follow the schedule, you risk allowing your vehicle not to perform optimally, and have it work harder just to keep running.
Not changing the oil regularly. Not changing your oil regularly can cause your engine to not perform properly and to overheat in extreme cases. By not changing your oil regularly you risk problems like oil leaks and broken belts to go undetected.
Not checking your brakes. Not checking your brakes can be a quick way to decrease the life of your brakes and your car. If you do not check your brakes regularly you may wear the pads down to the wheels thus causing damage to the discs.
Not keeping the car clean Regular cleaning the exterior and interior of your car is important for keeping your car in good condition. Not keeping your car clean can cause wear and tear, rusting parts and paint, and deteriorating brake lines.
Only driving short distances. This is true especially in very hot temperatures. Once you have started your car it is best to drive it for a while before parking it. Driving only a short distance usually leaves condensed water in the muffler. The collected water in the muffler can cause rust thus drastically decreasing the life of your muffler.
