< It is necessary to carryout preventive maintenance to keep your car in good running order. Basic checks every 2 to 3 week intervals such as checking fluid levels and frequent servicing will minimize the risk of a breakdown and prolong the life of your car. The following is only a guide and brief overview of commonly serviced items, please refer to your manufacturer’s handbook for your specific vehicle and service requirements if you are unsure.
Oil is the lifeblood of an engine. Not only does it lubricate moving parts it also prevents overheating using the correct grade of oil is essential change your engine oil often. Renewing the engine oil at or before the specified intervals prevents sludge build up which ensures the oil can flow freely through the passage ways in the engine to lubricate the various components. Every time an engine is started from cold it produces moisture which is transferred to the oil in the sump. This moisture causes corrosion inside the engine and will break down the oil over time causing premature wear to vital engine parts.
We recommend changing the oil & filter every 6months For turbocharged cars it is recommended to follow manufacturers guidelines Driving in the city or built up areas is a hard environment for any car. Lots of cold starts and short journeys do not allow the engine to reach optimum operating temperatures along with frequent gear changes and stop/start driving requires a car to have regular maintenance.
Air filters prevent abrasive particles from entering the engine where they would cause mechanical wear and oil contamination. A clean air filter would also have a positive effect on engine performance and emissions.
An engine air filter should be changed at least once a year. If the car is being driven in harsh or dusty conditions it should be changed more often. A quick visual inspection will reveal if the air filter requires changing or not. remember our advice is free and were happy to help and advise on any questions you may have
