Regular car checks to perform

In addition to the daily checks that you should perform on core elements of your car such as the tyres (see article entitled 'what to check on your car daily') there are various other elements that you should check less frequently, but still no doubt on a regular basis.

These elements include the following things:

- the radiator water level and top it up if required

- tyre pressure, brake fluid reservoir

- engine oil: fill up if necessary. This should be checked when the engine is cold and of course the car is on flat ground

- windscreen wipers: check that these are functioning correctly

- seat belts and fixtures and fittings: check that these are still in good functioning order, and have not come loose, seat belts have not become too stiff to operate etc

- steering: ensure that this is still functioning correctly and if you're not sure check with the garage

- test your horn briefly to check there is no problem.
