Lubricant World - - PANORAMA -

Plans have been made to go on a hol­i­day and meet with re­mote fam­ily mem­bers. But, have you had the car ser­viced be­fore you hit the road? We have listed the things to do for your hol­i­day to start with a pleas­ant jour­ney.

Have your en­gine oil checked to save fuel and in­crease the per­for­mance of your ve­hi­cle. To sus­tain your en­gine per­for­mance and to drive with plea­sure, have your en­gine oil changed within the in­ter­vals rec­om­mended by your ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­turer and car ser­vice. It is very im­por­tant to choose the right oil for your ve­hi­cle. The needs of each ve­hi­cle are dif­fer­ent. The oil se­lec­tor on Mo­tul's web­site is the right tool for you. At www.mo­tul.com/tr/tr/lu­bri­cants, you can eas­ily learn what suits your needs among Mo­tul's prod­uct range and ad­di­tives ac­cord­ing to your car's brand, model and mileage.

Have air con­di­tioner and fil­ter checked to pro­tect your­self from bac­te­ria and bad odors. As you will spend long hours in the ve­hi­cle, make sure your AC fil­ters are in good con­di­tion. Healthy op­er­a­tion of your AC sys­tem is of great im­por­tance for the com­fort of both the driver and the pas­sen­gers. Also, be care­ful to choose car­bon fil­ters that pre­vent bad odors, bac­te­ria and al­ler­gens.

Have your brake main­te­nance done, never take it for granted. Noth­ing is more im­por­tant than your safety on the road. Make sure to have your brake main­te­nance, which is one of the most im­por­tant safety fac­tors to pre­vent ac­ci­dents.

Check your cool­ing fluid, pre­vent over­heat­ing in hot weather with Mo­tul Mo­to­cool. It is im­por­tant to check your cool­ing fluid to avoid over­heat­ing dur­ing long jour­neys in hot sum­mer months. You can safely use Mo­to­cool prod­ucts.

Check if there is any wa­ter, oil or fuel leak­age. Make sure to have your car checked for any wa­ter, oil or fuel leak­age, which is the most com­mon prob­lem that turns your jour­ney into a night­mare.

Have your tires checked and travel safely. Make sure that your tires are ap­pro­pri­ate for the sea­son's tem­per­a­ture val­ues and road con­di­tions, and that the air pres­sure as well as wheel align­ment and bal­anc­ing is checked.

Make sure to get enough sleep be­fore you set off. To pro­tect your­self and your loved ones, make sure you have had enough sleep be­fore you hit the road, and take a break when­ever you need. To avoid dis­trac­tion, put your phone on silent and let your­self go with the rhythm of the ride.
