    Questions for people with cars

    1) How often do you check the oil level in your car? I have a feeling I don't do it enough, I have a 3 year old car and check once every 2 months.

    2) How often do you check your tire pressure? I checked mine the other day for the forst time since getting my summer tires put on in March, and found that all 4 tires had differing pressures. Only 1 tire had the correct pressure, other were everywhere up to less than 50% of the required pressure

    3) Any of you guys tried a rain repellent on your windscreen? I used rain-x on my front and rear windscreens and drive over 100 kms in the rain without running my wipers! Amazing stuff.....

    Maddy… now be honest. Did you open this topic so Irem may come back?

    Here are my answers:

    Never, Never, and Never. I have a beatup car but I am buying a new one once we come back from our summer vacation. I am thinking to buy either a Toyota Highlander or Porche Cayanne some other comprable mid sized suv.

                  Re: Questions for people with cars

                  1) I dont check the oil level...i just get an oil change every 3000 miles but i guess i am start checking the oil level from now on.


                  2) I never check the tire pressure either..... i just take my car to the tire shop once in 2/3 month to get the tires check for free.

                  3) i have never tried dat thing.. and dont know nothin abt it either

                    no seriously ;

                    I check the oil level about once a month

                    I have this silly habit of KICKING the tires before I drive I have a press. meter built into my toes ,I think the last time I had it checked properly was like 2 months ago

                    I heard about that stuff , the repellant, never tried it though

                      1 - Read the manual! different car makes recommend different times. They spend a large amount of time and money to give you those numbers. Read 'em
                      Car oil is the #1 thing you can do to make your car running like new. Don't cheap out on oil and filter. The xtra couple of $ will help you in the long run

                      If car is over 5 years old. 3 months or 3000km (whatever comes first). Change the oil regardless how good it is or what's recomended.

                      2 - Should do it once or twice in 2 months.

                      3 - Ya neat stuff. Not necessary if you dn't get too much rain

                        check oil level every week - or if the oil pressure light starts to act funny, (Ive installed an oil pressure/temp gauge) instant check. And surely replace oil+filter after 3000 miles (if you gun your engine repeatedly to 8800 rpm like me)

                        tire pressure checks are only done when refuelling

                        does not rain here often

                          my brothers friend never checked the oil level....with his first car (a bmw)....he took it too fast over the bump...the oil started leaking...but he didnt notice...after a while the engine was gone :halo: guys

                          and then u think he learnt his lesson and wont do it again? well ur wrong, second time he was driving around 140mph on a motorway...with his subaru...and again the oil got too low and he seized the engine again.

                          ummmm, lets hope his learnt his lesson for the third time round

                              RainX is available at Canadian tires for $ 9.99 or any auto accssy section of a store.

                              I recommend to get a 'professional' job by any 'Windshield replace' like 'Speedy auto' dealer they do it for $20 bucks and last for 1-2 yearr. useful stuff.
                              DIY will $crew it and not usefull.
