what are d things to check first before driving a car.
i would like to know what are the things to check first before driving a car. Coz last nayt, we almost have an accident. My husband is new in driving and he forgot to check the brake fluid,it is empty. The other week our car sudden stops, we thought that there is no fuel so he looked for and buy fuel, to late to learn that our tire was flat. And worst of all just the other day, our fuel got empty. Pls send me other guidelines before driving a car so i can share with my husband.....
Replace your husband? , oooops, I mean your CAR.
If the brake fluid is disappearing, a total brake job is always the best thing to do. Get an honest mechanic or a friend who are into CARS, they can advice you better. Better yet send him to a vocational school for auto-mechanic, that willl save you lots of money in the long run.
And last, before opening the car, make sure, it is yours.0

albert_sy2 Hi!- rearview mirrors
- seat adjustment
- do a short walkaround to see if everything looks alright (lights OK, no children hiding under the car, no leaks, etc)0

I suggest you and your hubby take a long hard look at the owner's manual for your car. The little section called "Maintenance" should tell you what those clear plastic tanks and long dipsticks in your engine bay are for.
And get a decent tire pressure gauge---the kind with a dial. Leave it in the car. Check your tires' air pressure at least once every 2 weeks, preferably when the tires are still cold (i.e. the car has not been driven within 4 hours).
But seriously...NO BRAKE FLUID?! *faints*0

The car doesnt have to be checked everyday before driving (although i usually check at least my tires before driving out to make sure there's no soft tire) granted that you have it serviced every 5,000kms as required.
What elvenjediknight mentioned pretty much speaks the basic "to check" things.
For the others (brake system, belts, suspension, tune-ups, etc.) it's better to take the car to a mechanic or service shop regularly (you're safety, and the safety of others depends a lot on this).
When was the last time you had the car serviced?0
babajigalu Memberi check the essential fluids like brake fluid, engine oil, and especially coolant level.0
shun_sakurai when in doubt, FLAT OUT!Coolant level is a must, too.
Most cars should have a coolant reservoir which the radiator can mooch off from when things get too hot under the hood, or when some coolant inevitably boils off. Make sure it has at least some coolant inside.0
kinurukurikot atomicgirl.blogdrive.comfirst off, you should not only check those mentioned above. in fact, dapat, lagi pa rin kayo nagkakaroon ng regular check up. sabi nga, you should do it every month. regular dapat yan. para hindi kayo nagkakaroon ng probs tulad nung nangyari sa husband mo.
