  • Impress Your Mechanic

    Impress Your Mechanic: 6 Important Types of Car Fluid #MidasLiquids We have posted in-depth information on all the fluids your car needs, but if you have missed any, here they are. It is nicely summed up just for you. All the below mention fluids are available from Midas Randburg www.midasrandburg.co.za | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg. When I was young, no one told me (OK, fine, I ignored the fact) that cars need their oil and other fluids changed. Poor old VW …. Now that I’m a super-mature grown-up (ahem), I know that regular oil changes are a must. But what about all those other mysterious fluids that make our car run? Do they need our attention too? The answer is yes. Here’s a simple breakdown of the types of car fluid that keep your vehicle running smoothly. Motor oil … what does it actually do? Changing your car’s oil is one of the most common car maintenance chores. But what has the stuff ever done for us? Simply put, oil lubricates your engine. Because there are so many moving parts under your hood, oil reduces friction and keeps your engine from overheating. This lubrication also prevents rust by blocking oxygen from getting to the metal. And, as if it isn’t working hard enough already, oil traps dirt and other particles, leaving them behind in the oil filter (which is why it also pays to change your filter periodically). DONT FORGET OUR WEEKLY SPECIAL IS RUNNING, LESS 10% ON ALL OIL FILTERS 26 June – 2 July 2015. So next time you’re due for an oil change, think about everything oil’s done for you lately and wipe that grimace off your face. Transmission fluid: the other dipstick There are 2 dipsticks under your hood: one to check your motor oil and one to check on that underrated worker bee, the transmission fluid. Transmission fluid performs many of the same functions as motor oil, like lubrication and cooling. As transmission fluid moves through an automatic transmission, it gets pressurized, which provides the hydraulic power needed to perform the transmission’s basic functions, like shifting gears. For those of you with a stick shift, manual transmissions also require lubricant, but often use a different kind that has to be serviced from underneath the car (which means no dipstick). Where does antifreeze stand on the whole freeze vs. no…

  • How do I refill my windscreen wiper with fluid?

    How do I refill my windscreen wiper with fluid? Here is a nice step by step guide #MidasLiquids Speak to us at Midas Randburg | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za If your windscreen needs a clean, there is a chance you need to refill your windscreen wiper with fluid. This will ensure that the coast is always clear. Follow these tips to fill up on wiper fluid: Pop the hood. Look for the washer fluid reservoir. On most cars, the washer fluid reservoir is located at the back of the engine bay, near the base of the windshield. The tank is usually translucent, allowing you to see whether there is fluid in the reservoir or not. Check the level. Many washer fluid reservoirs have marks to show the fluid level. If the tank is less than half-full, you’ll need to refill it. Crack down on cracks. While you’re checking your wiper fluid, inspect the tank for cracks or leaks. Fill the gap. Unscrew the washer fluid reservoir and add washer fluid until the reservoir fluid level reaches the “full” mark. You may want to use a funnel to avoid spills. Once you’ve refilled the tank, replace the cap and close the hood. Test the waters. Turn the car key to the “on” or “accessory” position. This will let you test the washers’ performance by turning on your windshield wipers and then the washers. The washers should deliver a steady stream of fluid; if not, you may have to clean the washer nozzles and lines. Come clean. If you’ve followed this list, you’re ready to wash up and drive off with a clean slate!

  • Power-Steering Fluid

    Power-Steering Fluid is essential in all modern cars. Without it, when turning your car it would feel like you are driving a tank #MidasLiquids Randburg Midas stocks a wide range of power-steering fluids that will meet the specification of any car. In power rack-and-pinion steering, fluid pressurised by the pump pushes on either side of a piston mounted to the rack, helping you turn the wheels. Simply put, power-steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in power steering. Servicing it involves draining or flushing out your car’s old power-steering fluid and then adding fresh power steering fluid. Should I do this service when it’s recommended? Absolutely. The fluid is the cheapest component of your power-steering system. Changing it can help to prolong the life of other, more expensive power-steering components such as the power-steering pump and the stratospherically expensive power-steering rack. Why do I have to do this? Over time, the seals, O-rings and internal power-steering components will wear out. When they break apart, they contaminate the power-steering fluid, which forces the power-steering pump to work harder (having to pump little chunks instead of just fluid) and eventually break down. What happens if I don’t do this? You’ll eventually chew up your power-steering pump. It’ll have to be replaced at a cost of several hundred dollars, or you’ll have no power steering — and you can’t easily drive a car that’s equipped with power steering when the power-steering system fails. You also may damage the rack, which will require you to take out a small home-equity loan to replace. Is there any maintenance required between intervals? If you hear a whining or moaning noise when you turn the steering wheel, you should have your power-steering system checked. Your power-steering pump may be about to fail. Also, if you notice a leak of any kind, you should definitely check your power-steering fluid level and make sure you keep it topped up. Running out of fluid will cook the pump, too. Car Talk Tip: If you do a lot of your own car maintenance, and you feel like servicing the power-steering fluid yourself, you’ll still need to dispose of the old fluid properly.
