Monitor your radiator. You need to allow your car to run for a couple of minutes, shut down the engine and then open up the hood. Never open the radiator while the car is on. Look to see what the fluid level is (use a dipstick), and remember that coolant needs to have a bit of water added prior to entering your radiator.

TIP! Do you know the signs of a low quality mechanic? If they are talking in circles and avoiding your questions, you should take your business elsewhere. If your gut feeling is that you don’t quite trust your mechanic, keep looking for one who inspires confidence in you and helps you understand the problems with your car.

Keep track of all the repairs and maintenance you do on your vehicle. You want these with you when you go to get repairs done; a great place to store them is the glove compartment. Professional mechanics are going to ask for those records. Good documentation can help diagnose problems a lot faster.

TIP! You should make sure to have a spare tire and jack with you all the time. Typically, if you have recently purchased a car, you should have these items already.

Record each repair that you have done on your car. If the car has other issues later, it can help the tech see its past records. These records will make identifying issues much easier to diagnose and will save you time and money.

TIP! Pay attention to your wiper blades. If you see that the wipers aren’t cleaning effectively, a new pair is in your future.

TIP! Do your friends or family have any recommendations for good repairers? People you know can give you some recommendations, making your search simpler. After they give you the recommendations, be sure to research them.
