Due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic worldwide, most parts of the world are forced to quarantine and force quarantine. It seems that we will not be driving fast anywhere quickly, but this does not mean that we should not ignore our vehicles during this time.
Being stuck at home may be worse for your car than for you. Idling cars may suffer a lot of damage-air leakage or deflation of tires, dry wipers and belts, dead batteries, pests or small animals become comfortable in the engine or other cabins and chew through the wires, this situation also continue.
As work resumption in many countries recently, people restart to drive to go to work. No matter how often the vehicle is driven, important precautions can be taken to ensure that the vehicle is in good condition, especially during this COVID isolation:
Start or drive a car, if allowed in your area, please drive fast or only run the engine in a suitable location for at least 20 minutes. This will help keep the vehicle moving parts lubricated and prevent tire leaks.
Use awning or hood, if your vehicle is parked on the street or in many places, it is likely to be baked and dirty in the sun day after day. Using mulch can help maintain paint, cleanliness, and prevent weather, pollen, sap, and bird droppings. Reflective sunshade is better than nothing, it can reduce the heat in the car and prevent the dashboard from bleaching or cracking.
Oil well, oil is one of the most important characteristics of vehicle maintenance and performance. Check the oil to ensure that the quantity and type are acceptable. Please refer to your user manual and make changes frequently. If you do not want to cause trouble, you can always hire a mobile mechanic to come to you, not just during isolation.
Gas up, gas-filled gas storage tank prevents the formation of condensate in the gas storage tank. Sometimes, dangerous gas fumes can accumulate in the fuel tank, and this can also be prevented by keeping a full fuel tank in the vehicle.
Clean car, regular cleaning and waxing can help protect the vehicle. A clean interior is also important-put a box of baking soda in your car-it can help prevent odors and allow invisible bacteria or mold to grow in the car. Keep your car away from old food or odors to prevent pests from living here.
Tip: After cleaning, support the wiper. This prevents the blades from sticking to the windshield surface or deforming after not being used for a long time.
Parking brake warning, if your car is to be placed for a month or longer, be sure to put your car in the "parking" position, for manual cars, make sure to put it in the first or reverse gear, and use the wheel set to prevent rolling. The reason for attention is that the brake may catch the rotor or drum, which can cause problems when the rotor moves after a few weeks of stagnation. It is better to be safe than regret.
