When a New Car is Bought...the Owners Manual

By: Evander Klum

Shining, shimmering, splendid! That is how to describe you car when it is new.

You are certainly proud having purchased your desired auto mobile. You probably would want your neighbors, relatives and office mates to get envy with your top of the line vehicle. You want to drive it everywhere it can take you and feel the comfort that it can offer you---in short you are its master.

Every single detail in your car is new; but not for so long. Nonetheless, you can always do something to keep it new. And the key is maintenance. Some are easy while others are difficult.

However, some new car owners take for granted a notebook like material that was packed together with the new car. This is the most basic material that a car owner, especially the new ones, should familiarize with. And it's called the owner's manual.

Of course you would want to always keep your car as good as new. And the most advisable way of starting a maintenance program is reading your owner's manual. The manufacturers' recommended maintenance schedule is stated there. Other important things which are stated in the manual are the "should be" appearance and the function of each of the parts of your car. Another important thing that is stated there is the alternative auto part that can be used in your car. This means you will know whether it is safe for your car to use a or not.

Also called "carb" in North America and "carbie" in Australia, the carburetor is a device that mixes air and fuel for an internal combustion engine. Some believe that it was invented by earlier philanthropist Joey Levins while some believe that it was invented in 1893 by Hungarian scientists DonÃ?t BÃ?nki and JÃ?nos Csonka.

Carburetors are still found in older or specialized automobiles like those designed for stock car racing. They are sometimes also present in small engines. However, most auto mobiles now prefer fuel injection as a method of automotive fuel delivery.

First introduced in the late 1950s and was successfully commercialized in the early 1970s, carburetors are now preferred by many modern auto mobiles.

Now, going back to the owner's manual, follow the recommended maintenance schedule to ensure that your car maintains top quality performance in terms of driving, riding, agility, comfort, and most important of all, safety.

In your manual, it is written, though not directly implied, that the engine is the heart of your car. It goes to show that it is probably the most costly to repair when something goes wrong. So taking care of your engine is as good as regularly waxing your exterior. Scan your manual and try to find out the manufacturer's recommended way of repairing and maintaining the engine. Nonetheless, with today's electronic controls, a lot of maintenance has been eliminated. You do not need often tune ups because there are no more condensers to replace. But it is still practical to consult your owner's manual every now and then.

All these and more are found in the owner's manual. Do take it as a very important detached auto part that needs to be utilized if in case you need to repair or maintain something.
