Petrol Services

Vehicles run on lots of fluid, like oil and fuel, to keep going– in the servicing world we call this ‘lubrication.’ Without proper lubrication, your engine cannot run. Oil is changed as and when required as per manufacturers’ specifications in petrol vehicles due to how much oil technology has advanced. Manufacturers know their vehicles best and that’s why at e-CAR Service we service vehicles according to the manufacturer’s recommendation, including using the oils and lubricants they specifically recommend, ensuring your engine is ‘tuned’ to run in its peak condition.

At e-CAR, we offer Minor and Major Services

A minor service should be done at regular intervals to maintain the condition of your vehicle. A minor car service generally includes looking after the small things in your vehicle, such as changing the oil and oil filters, among other things.

A major service is one of the most important services that your car will receive, it is essentially a complete overall check of the vehicle. To keep your vehicle in the best possible condition it should typically be serviced every year. However, there are some age and mileage milestones you need to be aware of. As an example, the distance your vehicle covers between oil changes.

It’s best not to miss a service

Missing a service can result in the failure to detect if your vehicle engine is clogged. The single biggest risk of skipping a service is a breakdown of oil or the sludging of oil, both of which can cause severe damage to your vehicle engine, which may eventually necessitate the replacement of the engine which is a major expense.

Advantages of vehicle servicing

Your car needs regular maintenance and care to keep it on the road and by regularly servicing your vehicle you are likely to see a lot of perks: increased fuel efficiency, better handling, improved braking, and a smoother running engine and to maintain its market value.

Regular servicing also makes financial sense because early detection of potential faults before they result in vehicle breakdowns could prevent very costly repairs down the line.

The Importance of Regular Service and Repairs

Taking care of your car is essential to keep it running smoothly and safely on the road. Regular service and repairs are the key to ensuring that your car is in top condition and ready to face any road challenges. Whether you’re a seasoned car owner or just starting out, make sure to schedule regular service and address any issues promptly to ensure the longevity and safety of your vehicle.

Regular service is the key to keeping your car in good condition. During a service, a mechanic will check the various components of your car, such as the engine, brakes, suspension, and transmission, to make sure everything is functioning properly. They will also change the oil and oil filter, check the battery and tire pressure, and top up any fluids that may be low.

Service intervals vary depending on the make and model of your car, as well as how much you drive it, but it’s generally recommended to have a service every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first. Regular service will not only keep your car running smoothly, but it will also help to identify any potential problems early on, allowing them to be fixed before they become more significant and expensive to repair.

No matter how well you take care of your car, there will come a time when it needs repairs. It could be a simple fix, such as changing a blown bulb or a more complicated issue, such as a faulty transmission. Regardless of the issue, prompt and proper repairs are crucial to ensure the safety of you and your passengers, as well as the longevity of your car.

 

It’s important to have a trusted mechanic who can diagnose and fix the problem quickly and efficiently. If you’re unsure about the problem, you can take your car to a mechanic for a diagnostic check. They will run tests on the various systems to determine the issue and then provide you with a quote for the repairs.

DIY repairs can save you money, but it’s essential to have the right tools and knowledge to do the job correctly. If you’re not confident in your ability to perform the repair, it’s always best to seek the help of a professional.
