How To Change A Tire Step by Step Video

ID-100144252When you drive your vehicle you are probably not thinking about a flat tire and being left on the side of the road. Preparation ahead of time is essential and knowledge of changing a flat tire is great, but you also need the right tools. Every new vehicle starts out with a spare tire, tire jack and a tire iron. These are the tools you need to get back on the road.

Before you head out, know where your spare tire is, if it has a security key and that your spare tire is in good condition. It will be no good to you if it has lost air or has been damaged. Good rule is when you check the pressure of your other tires, check the spare as well and keep it aired up.

If you have a flat tire that is not too bad (not ripped apart) you could also try filling it with a can of tire inflater or a sealer to plug a leak. Keep these important items with your tools for changing a tire as they can save you the trouble of changing out a tire and give you enough leverage to get to a mechanic or tire shop.

How To Maintain and Jump Start Your Car Battery

ID-100107795Your battery is what starts your car and keeps it running through the electricity it stores. When properly maintained your battery could last you up to four years.

Some batteries have a fill cap and you need to keep an eye on the water level and some do not. If you battery has fill caps you need to check the water level every two to three months. Refill if necessary with distilled water using a funnel. Fill until the water reaches the bottom of the hole. Use safety when filling the battery with water that the acid/water in the battery does not come in contact with your skin or eyes.

Do not overfill... If too much water is added, when you start your car the water level rises, with too much water already in the battery this will cause an overflow and lose valuable acid that is inside the battery. The acid will cause corrosion with metal.

While you are checking the water levels, also check how clean your battery terminals are. The battery terminals (where the battery cables are connected) are essential to giving power and when corroded the power currents are blocked form the battery cables. If they show signs of corrosion, remove the cables and clean with a wire brush, take a rag and wipe down the terminals and casing then replace the cables. This technique may come in handy if you have a dead battery and also check that the cables are not loose but secure on the terminals.

Your battery needs to be tested every 3000 miles or 3 months. This is also typical of an oil change in most vehicles. Put it on your list to have the oil changed and the battery tested for cell voltage a the same time. A mechanic can run this test in just minutes. A fully charged battery is at 12.5 to 12.6 volts. You can also have the voltage checked in most auto parts stores.

Dead batteries do happen and you should be prepared with a set of jumper cables kept in your vehicle at all times.

Check out the video below on how to properly use these cables to jump start your battery.

Come see us at Chaney’s Used Cars where You can purchase a good dependable vehicle by making monthly, weekly, or bi-weekly payments at the dealership until the cars are paid off.
