Take note of this several mistakes you need to avoid making when it comes to maintaining your car CV joints.

Engine cleaner product cost only $7 is not that expensive to keep your car engine clean if you like do it your self to save money for engine wash. Or you can take your vehicle to car wash to do it for you. If your car CV boot is torn permit the dust to get inside CV joint, plus the CV joint loose all the grease. The CV joint is forced to rub against this debris and this causes friction between the bearing balls, cage and the star, which in turn gives a clacking noise and rough drive instead of a smooth drive. You must check the engine and your CV joints after every few drives to ensure that there is no CV boot torn, is no gathering of dust, hard materials like steel wire around your CV joint. You should regularly maintain both the interior and exterior of your vehicle if you want it to shine and sparkle using wax kit along with giving off first class performance. This regular maintenance you do not need take your car to auto mechanic shop.
2. Keep Your Car Chassis Clean
Your vehicle chassis is most often overlooked and under and all around it is where most of the debris and mud gather. An auto mechanics usually consider a dirty debris accumulated chassis to be the root of all mechanical disasters. It is important that you regularly clean and maintain the chassis twice to thrice a month. Due you don’t place to left up your car, your option to take it to car wash to do it for you. If you neglect your car and keep it dirty, your car engine can cause you a breakdown and end up costing you a some money for a good repair.
3. You Need to Apply oil Accordingly
While applying oil, make sure it is better too much not too less. Make sure to check the engine as well as the joints and the areas around for any sign of oil leakage. Check your tapet cover, your sump, came shaft, crank shaft seals, and side shaft CV joint seals, your gearbox are not leaking. Oil leak can cost you money to repair your car. All this checking can be done by you because oil leak is exterior and you can see it on your drive way, your garage or places where you park you car. You can also take your vehicle to your auto mechanic or auto repairs shop offering free oil leak check. They can tell you if there is any sign of leakage. Always be sure of the quantity of oil applied. Should be good enough to prevent friction but should not be over applied as that can cause leakage.
My advice to you, always create a proper maintenance schedule and stick to it. Also take care of your vehicle and avoid mistakes that going to cost you fortune and hassle in the future to repair all your engine.
