Often people ask “what is a service”, so we have broken down what we action to make things simpler:
“A motor vehicle service…” is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has travelled a certain distance.
The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some moderns cars display the due date for the service electronically on the instruction panel.
Maintenance tasks commonly carried out (but not limited to) during a motor vehicle service include:
- Change the engine oil & replace the oil filter
- Check/Replace the air filter & check/Replace the fuel filter
- Check moisture content in brake fluid
- Check level and where required refill power steering fluid
- Check all drive line fluids, grease and lubricate components
- Check conditions of tyres, brake condition, suspension, battery
- Check operation of lights, horn, wipers washers
- Check front and rear wheel bearings
