A typical petrol service would entail
Changing the engine oil and oil filter. Screen wash, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid top-ups (where applicable and necessary). Inspecting the windscreen wipers and washers. Checking brake pads for wear.
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 your vehicles condition. A minor car services 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 damages to your vehicle engine, which may eventually necessitate the replacement of the engine which is a major expense.
