Spring Car Servicing; Get Your Car Service After the long Winter
Spring Car Servicing; Eric Roberts of Pellon Tyre and Autocentre gives his humble advice on good Customer Service on your vehicle or van after our the last cold and wet winter. Even a short engine service will be good for your cars life, and life expectancy, changing your old oil will reinvigorate your cars engine, and prolong its life expectancy.
I think this is the time to think about getting your car serviced, even in these times of recession it will pay you to care your vehicle by having Spring Car Servicing.
This winter as been exceptionally wet on your vehicle. Because of all the torrential rains. We have experienced this spring and winter and the rainy days have probably been forgotten now that we will be feeling when a bit of warm sun(not yet though we are now in May, and it’s still freezing) on our backs and the spring has arrived.
But your car took some heavy wear and tear on those cold, freezing nights. Your battery, your braking system, your clutch and other items such as the thickness of your cars oil. When your engine is running on thick oil, there is a likelihood of the increase in wear and tear on your engine, and it is important to change the oil as soon as the air temperature starts to rise, this will give your engine an uplift and increase its life expectancy.
Also, the effect that inclement weather has on your clutch and tyres, skidding on slippery surfaces causes massive amounts of premature wear on both these parts of your vehicle; an excellent service will pick up all these points.
Spring Car Servicing
Your Spring Car Servicing should be carried out at a proper service centre, ( look for your nearest Unipart service centre). Many motorists know of a good garage centre and will often pass this information on to their friends and family by word of mouth.
If you are phoning around for prices. I would advise going for the middle range price ( and make sure that the price includes parts and labour).
It is also a good idea to ask the garage/auto centre to keep your old parts for you to examine. Although many of the good centres will do this automatically for you. The cost of your Spring Car Servicing are governed by the size of your car engine. The cubic capacity (CC) usually the prices are split into three, small, medium and large engines. The bigger the car, the more extensive the parts. Therefore, the costlier the service and also diesel engines will be slightly more expensive.
I always recommend that motorists should try and use a garage that may be part of a larger trading group. These organisation often offer excellent guarantees and a sounder peace of mind,” and you cannot beat word of mouth recommendation”. I often give the analogy of buying a ” cheap tyre”. They look good but never last as long as a premium brand of tyre.
Also with many motorists strapped for cash. I would advise that the least thing you do is to change your engine oil. Consequently, have your brakes checked when you can afford to have your Spring Car Servicing.
Not just a service check your battery as well
If your car battery starts letting you down, change it as soon as possible. Most modern cars have onboard computers. Also, modern engines now have alternators that charge at 14.5 volts and will only work correctly using a maintenance free battery. Your replacement battery should be the best that you can afford, but there are many car batteries for sale at reasonable prices. Try and buy a high-quality maintenance free battery with a three-year warranty at an affordable price; Available at most good websites, with next day
delivery. I hope this is valuable information to you and saves you money on the cost of motoring.
