Click on the link Belowhttp://cardetailingphoenix.com/blog ==== ====Ways to jazz up spruce up and clean up your wheels. To the office from Monday to Friday, to the supermarket and the beach on weekends, all over theisland in search of good food whenever the mood strikes, and cross the borders for a holiday...your car is such an integral part of your daily life, it's almost part of the family. Give your car lots of TLC to keep it in tip top condition - that's your key to happy partnerships!Here's what you can do. Car wash • Wash your car at least once a week to remove surface dirt like dust, mud, grease spots andbird droppings. If the contaminants are not removed quickly, they can stick to the paintworkpermanently. Wash and rinse one section at a time, working from top to bottom. • Never substitute car-washing products for dishwashing liquid or household cleaners. Thelatter are likely to be too harsh and contain harmful detergents, abrasives and additives that canstrip off the wax and damage the paintwork. • Wash your car in a shaded area or during the cooler parts of the day like early morning orlate afternoon. Washing in the hot sun may cause uneven drying, which can leave residue andstreaks on your car. After the final rinse, wipe away excess water with a clean terry cloth toprevent watermarks from forming. • Wax your car at least twice a year to protect it from damage and to maintain color andshine. Waxing helps remove paint oxidation and surface dirt, while adding a protective coating. Itcan play down or remove minor damage such as surface scratches and light contamination, andprovide a high-luster finish. Tires • Keep your tires properly inflated. Under-inflation increases heat built-up in the tires, causingthem to wear out more on the outside and shorten their lifespan. Over-inflation causes tires toexpand more than needed, and also wear them out in the center. • Each tires wears out a different rate as each supports a different weigh. Tyre rotation shouldbe done every 7,000 to 8,000 km to achieve even tread wear and maximize tread life. Tires shouldbe balanced whenever they are remounted. 
• Look out for the tread wear indicator which shows the tires begin to wear out. These linesbecome visible at approximately 1.5mm below the tire surface - a sign that it's time to changetires. • Maintain car tires at the manufacturer's recommended pressure. Some marques will evenadvise a different level for front and back tires, and if the car is carrying a heavy load or doing along distance journey. The spare tire has a lower recommended pressure than the main tires. Car battery • The car battery starts the engine when you turn on the ignition. Once the engine is running,the alternator takes over to supply the car's electrical needs while restoring the charge to thebattery. Prolong the life of your battery by getting into the habit of turning off all the lights. Heatedrear window and radio before you switch off the car engine. • To check the condition of your car battery, look for signs of cracks and other physicaldamage on the battery case and corrosion at the connections of large battery cables. A crackedbattery needs to be changed immediately as the electrolyte leaking out is a mixture of sulfuric acidand water. • Top of the battery with distilled water whenever necessary to ensure that the acid level ineach cell is above the plates. If you have a maintenance-free battery, you can skip the batterywater, but you still have to check that the battery is secured and the terminals are corrosion-free. Regular maintenance • Check the reddish oil puddles under the car as they could mean a leak from either theautomatic transmission or power steering systems. The automatic fluid level should not drop belowthe minimum mark. At should also be clear without any metal filings or black flakes and no burningsmell. • Auto transmission fluid should be changed on schedule; otherwise you will be lubricatingyour transmission with contaminants. This will shorten the life of your transmission. Transmissionfluid doesn't burn up, so if you find the level dropping, it is quite certain there is a leak somewhere. • To check the level of engine oil, park your car on level ground and wait for at least fiveminutes after switching off the car engine. Remove the dipstick, wipe it clean, then replace it andpull it out again. The oil level should be between the maximum mark. If the oil is very black, acomplete change may be needed. • Brake fluid should be replaced at intervals, using the formula recommended by themanufacturer. The fluid must maintain a stable viscosity throughout its operating temperaturerange. It can absorb moisture and become contaminated. If it id too thick or too thin, braking actionis impaired. Keeping clean • Inspect the windscreen blades whenever you clean your windshield. Don't want until therubber is worn or brittle to replace them.

Vacuum frequently to remove dirt from floor carpets andupholstery. • Spills and stains should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent stains from setting.Keep a stash of tissue paper and wet wipes handy to clean dirty spots before carrying out seriouscleaning later with the right equipment. • For leather seats, use a leather and conditioner regularly to prevent the leather fromcracking.
