Tyres play an important role in keeping your vehicle stable, and fixed to the road, particularly when cornering.

Make time every few weeks to double check your tyre pressure on all four tyres, as well as the spare, using a reliable pressure gauge. In addition to this, looking out for cuts, bulges and general wear and tear will give you time to fix any issues before they cause you a problem.

Engine Oil

Most people hop into their car without even thinking of opening their bonnet. However, the engine oil in your vehicle acts as a lubricant for all moving parts, cutting down on friction, and consequently heat.

Remember: Letting your engine overheat could lead to costly repairs, or even the need for a new engine.


Damage such as cracks and chips in your windscreen can not only distract your attention from the road, they can easily get far worse over time. If you spot any kind of damage to your windscreen, it is important that you get it checked straight away, avoiding the need for a full windscreen replacement.

In addition to taking care of the tyres, engine oil and windscreen, there are a wide variety of other components in your vehicle that should be checked for faults on a regular basis and these include;
  • The screen wash
  • Lights
  • Power steering
  • Bodywork

The Clutch

The clutch is an essential part of your vehicle and a component that is used each and every time you use your vehicle. However, despite the fact that it is an integral part of your car, it only comprises of three parts;
  • The friction plate
  • Release bearing
  • The pressure plate
You may be surprised to find out that clutches are found in a wide variety of devices; in fact, any device that has two rotating shafts will commonly make use of a clutch to ensure the spinning engine and a non-moving transmission can be engaged smoothly.

There are many circumstances that will require you to stop your car, for example, at traffic lights, crossings and if someone suddenly steps into the road. However, unless you plan on leaving your vehicle, you won’t need to turn off your engine, and this is exactly why a clutch is needed in a car.
