Car enthusiasts are probably itching to go out and drive their cars on an empty road right now because of the lockdown.
And as everyone is staying still and staying home, you shouldn’t forget about your vehicles. We don’t want your cars to be getting all damaged during the lockdown because it means another repair and another shedding out of money.
Spending money on some damages that you could’ve prevented is a “malaking butas sa bulsa” which is why we are giving you some tips on how you can take care of your car during the lockdown so you can save your money and at the same time ensure that your car is ready to get back on the road once all of this is over.
Check on your tires
Tires can deflate and develop cracks under the constant pressure of your vehicle if it isn’t moved. To prevent that from happening, you can move your car a bit occasionally to remove those pressure. If you have a driveway at home, you can drive your car on it for a few minutes.
Check on the battery of your car
If a car is not used for a long time, there is a tendency for the battery to die down. So, do turn on your ignition and check the battery at least once a week. Just turn on your car and check if everything is fine so that when you get back on the road your confident that your car won’t die down on you.
Fill in your fuel tank
Keep your fuel tank filled for any emergency. If there is a little amount of fuel, then the air above the fuel might condense and store moisture inside the tank over a period which could cause rusting. But, if your tanks are not full, you don’t have to go out right now, just make sure that its cleaned once you head out next time.
Protect the Exterior
You must take care of that exterior, especially with the season that we have in the Philippines. In the morning it will be rainy, then suddenly it will be super-hot, and the sun can cause damages to the paint of your car.
Keep your cars under a covered parking or use a cloth to cover your car.
Block exhausts and air intakes
Blocking the exhaust of your car can prevent insects from coming in, which will save your car from smelling like a dead animal when you use it again.
Clean Interiors Regularly
Be sure to clean the interior of your car regularly to ensure that your car is free of virus and ready to be on the road again.
We may not be a car expert, but hopefully, these tips can help you prevent your car from any damages because the last thing that we want for you, is you getting back on the road unsafe.
