Nowadays, it seems like in the near future, we will not be able to contact each other as much as possible. It means we would not contact or visit the best car mechanic in Mumbai repeatedly. This makes it essential for every car owner to master the profession of a serviceman. Here we will mention a couple of tips for those who decide to devote themselves to the harsh life in the garage.
1. Choice of place
For repairing any car, the ideal place is, of course, a pit garage. Many car workshops in Mumbai offer extra garage complexes that keep two or three empty boxes specially designed for “self-car” repairs. Explore your nearby area, and you will probably find a pay-per-use garage. Also, these workshops charge on an hourly basis at a moderately low price.
Even beginners in the ranks of garage warriors understand that car repair is a messy business, so they hardly need a tailcoat. Before starting a car repair, get a separate set of clothes for garage work that you do not mind.
3. A set of consumables for constant replacement
Modern cars require maintenance after every 15 thousand kilometers or once a year, whichever comes first. It can include changing the engine oil, spark plugs, air filter, and cabin filter. As per the car brand and make, the frequency and list of works may vary.
If you have recently bought the vehicle, it is best to surf the Internet about the experience of other owners. This can help you find whether it is sufficient to change the oil every 10 thousand kilometers instead of those prescribed by the manufacturer.
3. Choosing spare parts
As a car owner, you must already know that you can pick up spare parts by informing the seller of the car’s VIN. The problem arises when manufacturers stop the production of old parts and roll out new oil filters. These new spare parts may not fit in your rusty car. As a rule, most of the sellers return the money or change the part, if only the part retains its presentation. This makes it extremely important for car owners to keep a check before removing an old part, and if possible, make sure that it looks and works the same as the old one.
4. Visual inspection
If you carefully study the working of a car mechanic Mumbai, then in addition to work on replacing consumables, you may find additional work that must be included in the standard maintenance. Also, carefully inspect your swallow under the hood and underneath. This can help you find most of the costly breakdowns at an early stage.
5. Tools and fixture
A sledgehammer with a chisel remains the most important tool in car repair to this day. However, as time passes, for the simplest car, you may need tools like “torx” (aka “asterisk”), a hexagon, or even a square. To save your precious time, it is recommended to study the manuals of cars you are going to work with in advance. Most of these tools are easy and inexpensive to buy.
