Makes and Models Serviced

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
