According to functional studies, these small “sore spots” formed in muscles are responsible for more than 75% of the chronic pain.

Checking the status of your vehicle can save your life

We know how hard is to suffer an accident and what complicated are its consequences. By saying this, Dr. Silverman wants to help you reduce the risks to experience one of them with the use of simple tricks before using your car, in less than 10 minutes. We start:

Check the engine: Start your car and check the sound, identifying differences or unusual noises that it may have; to learn to know your car and its status, would help you maintain it in good condition. In the same way, frequently check the brake fluid level, if it remains very low frequently, it may start leaking and needs revision. Go to a professional immediately; brakes may save your life.

Check the oil level: Same as the brake fluid, check at regular intervals the car´s oil levels, looking for potential engine leakage.

Ensure the water level is fine: The engine regulates its temperature using water. Identify the water tank and check it for leaking. If your car maintains an appropriate level of water, the engine will be less likely to fail.

Clean air filter: The role of the air-filter is to trap impurities that may damage the operation of the vehicle or the comfort of the passengers, so it is very common that it gathers dust from time to time and it avoids the filter to work at 100%. Regularly replace the filter, clean it and then set up to prevent engine failures.

Keep the wiper fluid reservoir full: It may seem like a strange trick to prevent accidents, but a dirty windshield can cause distractions or loss of visibility. Always keep your wipers tight, with the pen in good condition and with the full wash liquid, in case you need to clean it.

Check the shock absorbers: With your body, put pressure on the four corners of your car to test the shock absorbers of each of the tires. To make sure they work properly, the shock absorbers should not continue to bounce after you apply pressure. If they jump, take your car right away to a professional.

Tire Pressure and Condition: Good tires can be the difference between a perfect handling experience and the high possibility of an accident. Check tire pressure and control the air level: keeping your tires properly inflated, in addition to saving fuel money, will help you maintain better control of the car. Also, check frequently the state of the tires, if they start to have obvious signs of wear … change them!

Test all exterior car lights: directional, stationary, high and low lights, check all of them and check that they work correctly. In addition to fines, having your exterior lights in poor condition could cause you problems with driving.

If you liked these recommendations, share them. Help someone else having the preventive attitude on the way to decrease the risks of accidents. We can prevent accidents, but if they happen, call Dr. Silverman first.
