If you own an automobile, you should get to know the car’s workings. This may be helpful in emergencies and when you may want to sell the car and purchase in the future. The most convenient thing about this basic knowledge is that you will know what to do on the side of the road if there is an emergency.

Tire Changing

So many people don’t know how to change a tire, and this can be annoying if you get a flat tire on the side of the road or highway. There are services you can call to come help you with roadside assistance, but if you have the knowledge of changing your tire, and you have a spare tire in the trunk, it will benefit you and save you money.

Tire Pressure – along with the tire changing knowledge, knowing what to do with low tire pressure is essential too. If you’re tire pressure warning light flicks on, you’ll need to take your car to a close gas station and use the air pressure equipment to fill the tire up to its regular pressure. A good idea is to purchase a tire pressure gauge tool and make sure you know the model’s tire pressure number. Instead of taking your car to an auto shop or dealer, you can do this on your own in no time.

Vehicle Fluids

One of the most common events is when a vehicle fluid is low. Whether it’s the engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, or windshield wiper fluid, you should have the knowledge of changing and filling these. Make sure to talk to your dealer on what engine and fluid lights mean what, so that you can be prepared when you need to fill those fluids.
