Which and how much Engine oil – importance of oil.

When starting a cold engine let it tick over for a few moments to circulate the oil – most engine wear occurs within the first minutes of switching it on

Oil is an often overlooked part of the engine but more internal friction = lower power and more heat produced.

The biggest danger from rain is a condition know as aquaplaning, caused by drivers going too fast for the road conditions. Aquaplaning happens when the tyre is unable to expel the water and a film of water builds up under the tyre causing the car to “float” over the road surface. When this happens the steering will feel light and you will have no control over the car.

Braking, steering and accelerating should all be avoided as these can adversely affect the car and provoke a skid.
