Bad Habits that will kill your Car's Engine

"The car’s engine needs regular care and maintenance to work efficiently."

The car’s engine needs regular care and maintenance to work efficiently. There may be many things that we do unknowingly while driving a car that has adverse effects on its engine over a period of time.

In this article, we will tell you about 10 habits by which you are unknowingly damaging your car.

Skipping regular maintenance

The first and the foremost thing is to main your car regularly. Skipping the regular maintenance means killing your car’s engine.

Moreover, all machines need regular maintenance and so the engine is no different.

Skipping regular servicing and check-ups leads to many problems in the long run which can cost a lot more to rectify.

A frequent oil change is also essential for smooth engine operations.

Not checking the coolant temperature

Not checking the coolant temperature also causes different problems in your car’s engine. Most modern vehicles have an engine temperature gauge on the dashboard.

Moreover, an extremely high engine temperature is a sign that something is wrong and you should stop driving immediately.

Also, when a car stays cold for a long period of time, it is a signal that temperature sensors are not working as expected.

Shutting down Turbo engine immediately

Turbocharged engines are efficient, economical, and provide additional power to the car.

Moreover, a turbocharger is attached to the engine, it provides additional power, and in the process, it becomes hot especially if you drive the car hard.

If the engine is brought to a sudden stop after a long and intense drive, the oil in the turbine is still boiling hot, which damages the internal components of the engine.

So, always idle for about a minute before you take out the key, the car will cool down the components equally and certainly prevent any damage.

Driving on an empty tank

You are killing your fuel pump if you drive on an empty tank and could be very expensive to replace.

The fuel pump needs a certain level of fuel in the tank to function as expected. When the fuel is low, the fuel pump will either not work or overheat and may cause the engine to shut down.

Drive around with half a tank to keep your fuel pump working and reduce wear.

Constant speeding

Constant speeding causes unnecessary heating and friction in the car’s engine and pressure on other components like tyres.

Moreover, you need to maintain a constant and optimal driving speed so that there’s less pressure on the car’s engine parts and better engine life.

How to take care of your car’s engine in winter

19th November 2021
"The engine of each car is its “heart” which deserves to be tended to very carefully. Herewith a bit of maintenance, you can ensure your car is ready for the winter weather."

The engine of each car is its “heart” which deserves to be tended to very carefully.  As now winter is at its peak right now, and as the temperature dips in most parts of the country, you need to take good care of your car to avoid any unexpected damage in the car especially the engine. Herewith a bit of planning, you can ensure your car is ready for the winter weather.

Change the Oil

Dirty oil is bad for your engine at any time of the year, but it's even worse in the winter. A regular oil change is easily one of the most important things you can do for your car's engine.

The engine oil helps keep vital parts well lubricated and ensures the engine doesn't overheat.

If the oil is dirty, it will be even thicker, and thick oil will not flow through the engine properly.

Check Your Coolant

Your engine has coolant to help keep it from overheating, but this important fluid can become contaminated easily. One important consideration for engine coolant is the level of antifreeze.

If there is too much water in your cooling system, the liquid could freeze in cold weather, blocking coolant flow and leading your engine to overheat.

Have the cooling system checked before winter to make sure the mixture is right.

Allow Your Engine to Warm Up

In the winter season, it may be wise to warm up your engine before driving it. To do this, you can allow your vehicle to start for about 30 seconds before driving it.

After this 30-second warm-up period, drive your car gently to allow the engine components to come up to temperature.
