There are many different items that we own, that will require regular servicing, so for example this can range from central heating boilers that heat our home’s, right through to our bicycles for example that may need the brakes adjusted from time to time.
And where many of us lead very busy lifestyles, that’s to say often we work full-time, these tasks might get put off to carry out another day.
However, we would strongly advise that you do not delay or put off getting your car regularly serviced when your car needs servicing. Whether your car requires a full service, engine oil changed or an interim service carried out, this should not be delayed.
Make sure your car is serviced as per the manufacturer’s specification
The reason for this is without a regular service carried out on your car, that’s to the manufacturer’s specification, you could be causing your car’s engine and other components on your car to become excessively worn, which could sometimes be prevented sometimes by carrying out a service.
Each engine will have different service intervals, so if you are unsure how regular to get your car serviced, we would highly recommend speaking to a local and reputable mechanic.
For example, you may purchase a used car, yet then not get the car serviced for quite a while, it is therefore possible that the engine oil could be running low, or the engine oil used is not suitable for that model car, so it causes engine damage.
For example, the previous car owner may have changed the oil themselves, using the wrong specification oil, which sometimes can do considerable damage to an engine. So, if you are also unsure as to the service history of a used car you have bought, for example how long ago the engine was serviced and the engine oil changed, then we would highly recommend talking to a mechanic.
Equally, you might delay getting your car serviced for quite a long period of time, which might cause the air filter to become obstructed, the engine oil to run excessively low, and also the coolant might also be running low on the vehicle. So, getting your car serviced at the regular intervals, is important.
As everybody knows, these components, such as the engine oil, air filter, engine oil filter, all need to work perfectly, that’s if you are to correctly help maintain the engine.
Engine coolant running low, or engine oil running low could cause a total engine failure for the engine, so this is why regular engine servicing is so important.
Which types of car servicing does your garage offer?
The main types of servicing that we offer at our garage are “interim servicing”, “oil changes and oil filter changes” and also to carry out “full servicing” for any make or model vehicle.
For example, somebody who carries out large amount of mileage may want us to carry out an “interim service” on their vehicle.
On the whole, most vehicle owners ask us to carry out a “full service” on their car, sometimes some customers ask us to carry this out, when they visit us for getting their car prepared for an M.O.T inspection.
This way when the car is on our ramp, at our garage, our mechanics can carry out a full service after they have carried out an inspection of the vehicle to prepare the car for its M.O.T. This means when you having car repairs carried out to your car, we can straightaway then start to carry out a full service, an oil change or an interim service.
Having your car serviced, also allows our mechanics to check other areas of your car, if you instruct us to do so.
Often cars are in daily use, so often the car owner does not want to be left without a vehicle for any great length of time.
Therefore, when you are having your car serviced by us, it also provides an opportunity for you to ask our mechanics to check other areas of the car that you may be concerned about.
For example, you may have noticed that the clutch on your vehicle feels different, you may ask our mechanics to check the clutch on your car.
Alternatively, you may have heard a strange sound from the car’s exhaust, that’s whilst driving in the lower gears, you may therefore wish to ask our mechanics to check your car’s exhaust.
Alternatively, your car’s brakes may not feel that responsive, so you may ask our mechanics to check the brake discs, the brake pads, and also other components that relate to the correct function of the brakes.
Therefore, when you are having your car serviced, you can discuss with your mechanic other areas of the car that you may want repaired.
However, it is worth emphasising the point that if you have any queries relating to the performance of your car, or any repair work that needs to be undertaken, you should not delay having your car inspected straightaway by an experienced mechanic. This means if any repair work needs to be undertaken to your car, then you should consult with a mechanic straightaway.
Yet having your car serviced also allows your mechanic, if you instruct them to do so, to check other components while working on your car. If you have any doubt as to if any parts need repairing or replacing, then you should immediately contact a mechanic, that can help you with this work.
