Tips and Tricks


Buying a car is a big investment, so it’s only natural to protect your investment. In this case, this means keeping the most important part of the car, the engine, in top working order. A car’s engine needs constant attention and care to keep it performing efficiently. Here are seven tips on how best to protect your engine:

Seven tips to keep your engine performing

1.  Change your oil. This keeps the vital parts of your car lubricated and prevents overheating and permanent damage. Shell Helix motor oil is the first 100% fully synthetic motor oil and is perfect for all engines performing under extreme conditions.

2.  Keep the cooling system working. The cooling system consists of many parts but the easiest way to keep it working is to regularly check the levels of your coolant and replenishing it.

3.  Keep an eye on your air filter. Your air filter keeps out all unwanted debris from entering the engine and should not be allowed to get clogged up. Keep your air filter clean, or if necessary, replace it.

4.  Fill up your tank before it gets too low. There is an amount of naturally occurring sediment in all fuels, so fill up your tank before your car starts to draw that sediment into your engine.

5.  Follow-up on warning lights. As soon as a warning light comes on, get the corresponding issue checked by your nearest mechanic.

6.  Replace your fuel filter. Your fuel filter protects your engine from the naturally occurring sediment that is in your fuel. Replace your fuel filter after a while to keep your engine free of sediment.

7.  Avoid repeated stopping and starting. Your car runs best when it's driving at a constant speed.
