[TheJuzzExpert] Fluids are the lifeblood of your car and keeps you driving smoothly and safely on the roads. Do you know what different kinds of fluids a car needs?
Most cars will use the following fluids: engine oil, radiator coolant, automatic transmission fluid, windscreen washer fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid, power steering fluid, battery electrolyte fluid and possibly more; depending on vehicle type.
The Juzz Expert says: Check your car fluids regularly, and replace when needed.
[TheJuzzExpert] Your tyres keep your car connected to the road – it’s important to make sure they are in tip-top condition! Having your tyres inflated to the correct pressure can help to increase the lifespan of your tyres and reduce fuel consumption.
If you feel your car pulling to one side when you drive, you may be overdue for a wheel alignment and balance as well.
The Juzz Expert says: A good way to extend the lifespan of your tyres is to have them rotated regularly to reduce uneven wear and tear.
[TheJuzzExpert] Think of the air filter as the lungs of your car. It is designed to filter out dust, dirt, leaves, sand and other debris from entering and causing damage to your engine.
Here are some telling signs that indicate your air filter
Unusual engine sounds
The ‘Check Engine’ light comes on
Black sooty smoke or flames exiting the exhaust
Smell of gasoline when starting the car
The Juzz Expert says: If you’re looking to improve your car’s breathing, a performance air filter is what you need. Something just like our in-house favourite, the ARMA high-flow drop-in air filter, which is designed to maximise the utilisation of space and amplifying the cold air storage efficiency.
[TheJuzzExpert] Keeping your windscreens sparkling new is no easy feat – here are some tips on how to do so!
Park in the shade where possible: Lengthy exposure to direct sunlight shorten the lifespan of your windows, as UV rays will damage the tint and structural integrity over time.
Clean & replace your wipers: Those scratches on your front windshield probably came from dirt and particles embedded in your wipers! They need to be checked, cleaned and replaced (when needed) every few months.
Use cleaning products meant for car window: Using ammonia-based glass cleaners can destroy the tint of your car windows. Instead use special car window cleaners applied with soft cotton or microfibre towels.
The Juzz Expert says: invest in regular maintenance now and avoid expensive replacements in the future. Alternatively, consider protecting your windscreens with our special Tribos coating treatment, for the shine your car deserves.

[TheJuzzExpert] Car batteries have a habit of bailing on you with no prior warning.
Avoid the conundrum of a flat battery by:
keeping track of the last time you had it changed
checking the terminals for corrosion
if needed, topping up the battery fluid with distilled water (never overfill!)
Plus, keep an eye out for flaky powder around a corroded battery terminal – it’s extremely acidic and dangerous.
The Juzz Expert says: Infrequent use of a vehicle can result in battery drain, so always run your car at least once a week.
[TheJuzzExpert] Getting your car repainted is a great decision – think of it as an investment in many ways. Not only will your precious ride look brand new, you will likely increase its trade-in or resale value.
The Juzz Expert says: First thing you have to know: New paint cannot be applied directly over the old. Fading colour, oxidation and irregular surfaces of existing paint will hinder the smooth application of a fresh coat. Hence what needs to be done is one of the most integral steps – and also the prime reason this calls for a professional – to prep your car first. Getting a car ready for a total repaint requires a lot of sanding and other preparation work; tedious and time-consuming but totally necessary for the best quality result.
