2269 ratings | 73686 views
You don't need to be a mechanic to know a little about your car. If you travel and rent a car, make sure you know what to do in case there are problems with it. You also need to know the correct words for the different parts of the car! In this vocabulary lesson, we'll go over some of the basics of car maintenance, including fluids, basic engine words, and other things that are inside most road vehicles. You will learn the meaning of words like "wiper", "jack", "muffler", "hood", "shocks", and more. Take your new vocabulary for a test drive by doing the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/real-english-vocabulary-taking-care-of-your-car/ WATCH NEXT: 1.

In today's video, we're going to look at basic car maintenance. Now, some of you are thinking: "Okay, I don't really need to know this because I don't have a car", but it's always a good idea to know as much as you can about as much as you can, including cars. And keep in mind: It's still English, so it's still a good idea to listen. And you never know when you may be able to help a friend or family member with his or her car. Now, I'm not going to get too serious about this; I'm just going to give you the general things you need to keep in mind when you're looking at your car; a little bit inside, a little bit outside, get a general idea of how to take care of your vehicle. So, the first thing you want to do always... Or every once in a while, depends on the situation, depends on how old your car is: You want to check fluids. "Fluid" is basically any liquid, anything that flows throughout your car. For example, oil. Now, how do you check your oil? Well, you have a little oil tube sticking out of your engine, it has a dipstick - so, basically you pull it out, you clean it with some tissue, you put it back in, and then you pull it out again and then it shows you how much you have; what the level of the oil is. And all of these things... To check all of these things or most of them, they each have their own little dipstick. Okay? So make sure you know where the dipstick is to check your levels. Now, if you're driving and you have windshield wipers, you also make sure... You always want to make sure you have enough windshield washer fluid. So, when you press on the windshield washers... On the wipers, the spray that comes out. That fills up; make sure you have enough. Especially, for example, you live in Canada, in the winter when the streets are full of snow and ice and salt, and they come on your window, if you don't have this fluid, you could be in a lot of trouble. Okay? So make sure you always have some. Once in a while check your transmission fluid. Now, your transmission is what makes the engine... The power from the engine comes to the transmission and it basically turns your tires. Now, if you have gears... Some of you... Most people, actually, these days have an automatic transmission. You put in drive and you go; you don't have to think about all the gears. Some people still have manual transmission where you put it into first gear, second gear, third gear, fourth gear, fifth gear, etc., you have your clutch that you have to engage. Okay? So this is your transmission; that's what makes the wheels turn. Make sure there's enough fluid so you don't kill your transmission. And, again, brake fluid. Your brakes work on hydraulic power. Make sure there's enough fluid in there so the brakes engage and you can actually stop your car. Make sure there's always enough coolant in the radiator. The radiator is that part of the engine that keeps it cool; it doesn't let it get too hot. So the coolant is a special type of fluid that flows through the radiator, it cools as it works, and it goes back into the engine, keeps the engine nice and cool. Make sure you have gas; no gas, no driving. Even electric cars still use some gas, right? So... Then always make sure that your car is fully equipped with the tools it needs. Now, you have a tire, here; imagine that's a tire on your car. The thing that keeps the tire connected to the car, these things here-there's four or five of them-these are called lugs. Lug nuts. So make sure you have a lug wrench. It's usually in your trunk with your spare tire or underneath it. Make sure you have one that properly works. If you have a lock on these lugs, make sure you have the lock so you can open it. A jack. A jack is the thing that you put under your car, and you pump, pump, pump, and it raises your car so you can take the tire off. […]

I love the way you taught. I almost get everything from your lesson. I work in Cibodas Botanical Garden. One of the best botanical gardens in Indonesia with so many peoples visit every day. I work as a front men, who need to know everything about in side. As specialy for the plant. I am a security. I'v been learning English from YouTube. But as you know that English is not my mother tongue. I don't know about plant, even I learn it my self but I can't pronounce it as well. Here are some botanists who speak English well (they were graduated from abroad) but I am ashamed of asking them. I wish you can explain about trees and flowers anatomy of your next scene. Thanks Adam, you make my day. I am really on fire to learn English.

Hello Adam, how nice to see you again - in a new video, I really missed you! Please calm (dawn) me, yr speed of speech is already 'normal', not for yr poor students (otherwise I give it up being ever able to understand a native English speaker) - luckily it can be slow dawn 'technically'. Nevertheless I'm glad to watch you. Kate from Hungary
