    check ur engine oil and brake oil on weekly basis.
    radiator water/coolant should be checked daily.
    always keep ur spare tire,jack,spanner ready
    when u start ur engine in the morning dont give aggressive throttle leave it for 5 min.

    drive safe and if u could change ur brakes to power brakes
    cuz i have heard a lot of accidents of mehran due to weak brakes
    I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension...............................Ayrton Senna

    Refilling radiator every 500 kms is unheard of. Also, even when doing so, don't open the radiator cap. Fill the attached bottle instead.
    There is nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes Benz.

    No need to replace radiator water just maintain its existance.

    First of all congratulations on buying a car. You didnt say if it`s a new or used car that you have bought. Each would require different maintenance, but the basic stuff is the same.

    Assuming it`s a new or relatively new car or even an old one, you can check the brake fluid, engine oil, radiator water level etc for a couple of days straight and once you are sure it`s not consuming oil and there is no leakage you should check them on weekly bases i would suggest.
    There is no need to check the water every 400 or 500 kms. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge while driving and you should be fine. Water should be checked regularly but isn't such a big issue in winters. Also, while checking the radiator water if you are in the middle of a long journey make sure that the engine is running when you remove the radiator cap.
    Make sure that your spare wheel is actually something you can use when needed and check the tire pressure in it when checking the rest of your tires.
    Lastly there is no need to let your car run for 5 minutes in the morning even in extreme cold. 45 seconds to 1 minute is enough. Just make sure you don`t rev up the engine in a cold start.
    I am sure other members will point out things and help you.
    Drive safe.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    accept my congrates on buying a car..

    wel..
    you dont need to change the radiator water after 500km or so..
    just maintain the Water level.
    do check ur radiator on daily basis..
    check Engine oil level wkly .
    and notice your engine for leakages frequently.. coz leakage is the only cause leads to droping engine oil level or gear oil level...

    check Break fluid wkly....

    change ur engine oil after 2500km along with oil filter and Airfilter ( changing of air filter is conditional,depending up existing Condion )

    dont let ur Car over heated ever......for that you need to keep an eye on your speedometer for Temp.Guage..
    if Your temp guage exceeds normal level,it can damge the gas Kit..
    gas Kit For mehran is Very Unreliable..

    in morning... let your car start for 5 min without pressing throtle.

    if ur car is old one with cng kit installled...
    then you must Check life of your Gas cylinder.
    if its inspection date is near.. get it done as soon as possible
    thats the most important thing to do..
