Servicing

Regular servicing will prolong the life of your vehicle

We have all been feeling the pinch with the ongoing recession, and it has been widely reported that car servicing has been neglected by households in an attempt to save money. While it is perfectly understandable, it is unfortunately one of those false savings.

Regular car servicing performs an essential function, that is to identify and rectify potential problems before they become serious and costly and put you and your family's safety at risk. 'A stitch in time saves nine' is certainly true when it comes to vehicle maintenance.

If you have a car warranty, one of the conditions of its validity will be regular car servicing in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. Car warranty companies show little flexibility when it comes to car servicing, so if you don't keep it up, they are very likely to decline a claim.

How often you should take your van or car for servicing partly depends on how much you use it and on the make and model. In most cases, an annual car servicing will be enough, but for heavy usage, twice a year may be advisable. If you are not sure, please contact us and we will be glad to advise you and give you a quote for your vehicle.

Here are some of the typical checks performed during a van or car service:

  • Level and cleanliness of oil
  • Oil leaks
  • Condition of the timing belt (Cambelt)
  • Radiator and radiator cap condition
  • Radiator leaks
  • Antifreeze strength and level
  • Condition and tension of fan or alternator belt
  • Spark plugs
  • Fuel lines
  • Clutch operation
  • Propshaft
  • Gaitors
  • Drive shaft and joints
  • Gearbox and clutch fluid
  • Power steering reservoir
  • Wheel bearings for excessive noise
  • Suspension
  • Exhaust
  • Brakes
  • ABS
  • Condition of tyres and wheels
