What is Servicing?
Vehicle Servicing is carried out yearly or in some isntances every 2 years both of which are also dependant on mileage. The process of servicing is different from each vehicle make, model and the mileage it has done. As a minimum the oil and oil filter change are replaced, depending on the mileage other items such as fuel filters, air filters, spark plugs and gearbox servicing is also required. On top of the servicing components that are replaced the vehicle will undergo an inspection. The type of inspection is also dictated by the age and mileage the vehicle has done. The inspection can be checking everything from brakes, tyres, lights, and suspension components, the list is exhaustive.
Do i need to service my vehicle?
In short the answer is yes. There are several factors as to why this is required.
- The vehicles engine oil is there to protect your internal engine components, this oil degrades over time reducing its ability to protect your engine, this is where fresh oil is an absolute must
- Filters and service components are there to do a job and thats to protect the vehicles components by filtering out contaminants, without regular replacement these can become blocked, preventing its purpose and can result in expensive component or engine failure.
- The safety aspect – The vehicle needs to be checked over to make sure that the vehicle is safe to drive, this is also to let you know that on inspection we can see if there are components that may need replacement before they fail and cause more damage. Many people feel the MOT is the safety inspection, whilst this is true, this is only the very basic form of an inspection. The vehicles legal requirements for brake pad thickness on an MOT is only an astonishing 1.5mm. Tyres minimal tread minimum legal depth is 1.6mm. Many do not realise that worn components work less effectively, affecting drivability and most importantly safety for the driver and pedeastrians.

Gearbox servicing normally involves either a complete oil and filter change, or sometimes a complete oil change. Again this differs from each manufacturer. Please contact us to obtain an accurate quote and procedure for your vehicle.
Engine & DPF Carbon Cleaning POA
Your vehicles engine over time will start to produce carbon, affecting things such as the vehicles turbo, egr valve, diesel particulate filter and internal engine components. The carbon is the main reason these components fail on diesel vehicles. With a carbon clean this helps break down the carbon deposits within the system to help prolong the life of the engine and its components. It is also a very good aid to reduce emissions and increase the vehicles power whilst also improving fuel consumption. We advise diesels to have a carbon clean every year, petrol vehicles every 2-4 years. Whilst we offer this as a standalone service, we offer this at a reduced rate if you are having other works being done at the same time. Please contact us for more information.
