Powering a Sustainable Future: Tips for Gas Engine Maintenance in Saudi Arabia
By Space Coast Daily // September 19, 2023
In a world that’s increasingly looking to achieve environmental sustainability, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia provides its 2030 sustainable vision for the future, from policy development and investment to environment, transportation, infrastructure, and more.
Speaking of a sustainable environment, it must be noted that reducing fuel emissions and air quality policy comes partially from recognizing the significance of automobile maintenance and inspection, particularly for gasoline vehicles.
Accordingly, improving performance and reducing emissions from gasoline engines comes by conducting regular engine maintenance.
Learn more about gas maintenance tips to effectively reduce emissions, drive more safely, prolong your vehicle’s life, and help its engine run at the best efficiency and performance levels.
The gasoline engine oil is the first component that needs to be checked and ensured of its safety and quality, as it works to reduce friction among the engine’s internal parts, preventing wear and engine overheating, Thus; prolonging engine life and efficiency.
Therefore, you must check the oil engine either manually or by using the internal electronic screens that display the engine oil level and condition.
Transmission fluid protects the gears and clutches from friction, among the internal parts and thus reduces wear among them, as well as the function of cooling the heating generated among these parts.
If the transmission is manual, only a technician can check and replace it regularly. As for the automatic one, you’ll notice that the transmission fluid frequently has a red hue to make it easier to spot impurities. and it’s frequently seen either behind the engine or on one of its sides. It’s recommended to switch it at a specific distance, or depending on what the owner’s manual for the car tells.
The antifreeze or the engine coolant transfers heat from the engine block, through the radiator to the air, and prevents freezing at low temperatures, in addition to protecting the engine and the coolant system from rust and corrosion. Hence, the coolant level in the radiator tank must be full at all times for the radiator to operate as intended. This indicates that a weekly checkup is required.
Power Steering Fluid
The car’s steering systems use a hydraulic steering booster, therefore it’s critical to track and regularly check the amount of steering fluid or oil to maintain smooth internal system performance levels.
Engine Air Filter
The engine air filter performs an excellent function of cleaning the air and introducing it to the engine. So, if the filter isn’t cleaned and checked for a while, clean air won’t flow, which will lead to various malfunctions.
Therefore, the air filter needs to be checked weekly and cleaned from impurities, either manually or by an auto technician.
Gasoline Fuel Filter
This is one of the most important components of the engine and should be inspected at least once a month as it helps deliver clean gasoline to the engine pipes, shields fuel injection components from corrosion and other damage and can clog up with contaminants from the gas tank.
