Explore these 10 ways to show your car some love this Valentine’s Day and ensure its long-term health and performance. 

As we celebrate the month of love, what better way to express your affection than by showering some love on your beloved car? For most of us, our cars are more than just vehicles; they’re cherished companions on life’s journey. From cleaning tips to essential maintenance, show your car the love it deserves. 

Clean Your Car and Undercarriage1. Clean Your Car and Undercarriage 🚗❤️ 

Road debris can be harsh on your vehicle’s undercarriage. Regularly wash your car and clean off debris and grime. Wax your car at the beginning and end of the warm season for a sweet-looking ride. 

2. Clean Out the Junk in Your Trunk 🧹🚗 

A cluttered boot increases your car’s weight, leading to higher fuel consumption. Take the time to declutter your boot, it not only looks better but also gives you a lighter and more fuel-efficient ride. 

3. Check and Rotate Your Tyres 🔄🚙 

Regularly check tyre pressure, especially in colder weather. Underinflated tyres increase fuel consumption and wear faster. Rotating them ensures even wear, maximising tyre life and saving you money. 

4. Change Your Oil and Filter 🛢️🔧 

Regular oil changes minimise engine stress. Combustion by-products in oil reduce lubrication effectiveness. Change the oil filter to keep out deposits and particulates that could damage the engine. 

5. Change Your Air Filter 🌬️🚗 

A clean air filter prevents dirt from contaminating the engine, ensuring optimal performance. A clogged filter can cause power loss and increase fuel consumption. 

6. Check Your Belts and Hoses ⚙️🔍 

Inspect belts for wear and tension. Check hoses for mushiness, hardness, brittleness, or cracking. Addressing these issues early can prevent major engine problems. 

7. Check Your Battery 🔋🔍 

Corrosion on battery posts can lead to issues. Ensure connections are secure and consider replacing the battery if it’s over two years old. 

8. Check Your Brakes 🚦🔧 

Brake fluid absorbs moisture, leading to silent damage. Regular replacement prevents expensive repairs. Address worn brake pads promptly to avoid costly disk replacement. 

9. Flush Your Coolant System 🌡️🔧 

Thoroughly flush the coolant system every two years to prevent metal corrosion. Use the right antifreeze mix, check the reservoir monthly, and top it off as needed. 

10. Replace Your Windscreen Wipers 🌧️🚗 

Don’t overlook your windscreen wipers. Replace them regularly to ensure clear visibility in rain or bad weather conditions. Good visibility is crucial for safe driving.
