The moment that you start to experience challenges with turning on your car, your first thought is probably an issue with the battery. This misassumption is commonly made by many motorists since the battery is what provides the car with the power it needs to operate. However, if this battery is fairly new, it is unlikely that a dead battery could be the root of your woes. Instead, a hidden problem could be the issue at hand.
If, like me, you like to drive and are something of a petrol-head, then feeling confident is part of what it is all about when motoring. Knowing what to do if you face a hazard on the road or how to deal with a blowout is all part of the driving experience, to me. Having said that, few motorists really know what checks they should be making to ensure their car is properly roadworthy. I've spent the last few years upgrading my car maintenance skills and - although I'm no qualified mechanic - I now undertake all sorts of jobs needed to keep my car running properly and safely. Read my blog and pick up some car maintenance tips that anyone can do.
