You can seek the services of NRMA approved repairer even for the smallest of reasons and you should, but only if the problem is major and something that you cannot tackle on your own. For daily vehicle users, these problems are very uncommon and rare and mostly, they confront issues that are minor and can be handled through DIY. In such situations the best step is to acquire some knowledge and tackle them through DIY. There are several of them and some of them have been discussed here in his post.

Oxygen Sensors

  • According to the experts of vehicle air conditioning, sensors are actually the key to wellness of the vehicle and its longevity.
  • Therefore, it is important that you don’t ignore anyone of them and pay attention to any change occurring in them.
  • Another fact about these sensors is that these sensors are the main culprit when it comes to auto repair.
  • The main task of these sensors is to balance the fuel at the same time when the oxygen is mixed with it.
  • The good thing about these sensors is that the driver can take care of them as they are often present inside the cabin.
  • However, in case there are some hassles related to maintenance and repair, you should immediately seek the services of an NRMA approved repairer.

Loose Fuel Caps

  • This is another very common problem that people confront on a daily basis, but thankfully, it can also be tackled through DIY.
  • This mainly happens to the vehicles that run on a daily basis and this is actually the top reason behind engine lights getting "on", on the dashboard.
  • The problematic factor here is that loose or broken fuel caps can put a huge impact on the overall fuel economy and thus, it should also be tackled on an urgent basis.
  • This can also be done through DIY and the complete expense of doing this would be somewhere around 10 dollars.

Catalytic Converter

  • This problem mainly occurs in vehicles that are not taken care of very well and in a very short span of time, could turn into a major one, if negligence is shown.
  • This is another reason why this much of stress is paid on the aspect of regular servicing and maintenance because with it, these things are taken care of on time.
  • Mass Air Flow Sensor
  • There is a coolant sensor and another one that works the same way as this one that can get broken without letting the driver know.
  • However, experts of vehicle air conditioning say that this problem can be avoided very easily by timely maintenance, servicing, etc. and simply by replacing the air filter on a frequent basis.
  • Yes, the facts that replacing air filter is a much economical expense as compared to getting the entire sensor replaced.

Spark Plugs

  • Another component that can break down even for the simplest of reason and could cause expensive damages to the vehicle’s engine is the spark plug.
  • Therefore, NRMA approved repairers say that you need to keep checking it on a daily basis and get the replacement done in case any malformation is detected.
  • This would be a far inexpensive step as compared to letting it damage the engine parts and then, getting them repaired by a reputed NRMA approved repairer.
