Three Main Habits That Can Give Your Car A Longer Life

Vehicles are meant for running at optimal speed. Some are meant for heavy-duty travelling more than others. However, your car can be more fragile than you think. It can speak to you in more ways than one. You need to learn to recognise the signs. We’ll help you!

Practice a few habits to give your car a longer running span than most cars. To do this, you need to know a bit about how a car functions through these little habits. This mindful routine can help your car in the long run (pun intended!), long before you send it to the metal scrappers.

Three main habits to give your car a longer life

  1. Did you know that letting your car sit for a hot minute before running helps get the engine oil up to temperature? This process helps distribute the oil throughout the engine. Just let the car sit for a minute after you turn on the ignition. Revving up the car won’t do it any good even though it heats the engine but damages the car. The abrupt temperature change can cause stress between the engine’s tight components.
  2. Many impatient drivers are quick to shift abruptly from reverse to forward gear. They may have mastered their control over the years of driving but it does not justify going rogue. The best practice is to reverse the car, stop, shift to forward gear and slowly gain up to speed. This will save your car from axle damage, including engine and transmission issues as well.
  3. Put both your hands on the steering wheel. This helps to manoeuvre the car smoothly. However, the real reason we’re talking about this is that many drivers have one hand on the shift lever and one hand on the steering wheel. Putting your hand on the shift level throughout the journey of your drive can strain the transmission’s bushings and synchronizers. This can lead to premature wear.
