Drivers Avoid Car Servicing
Modern cars are all controlled by computers these days. In fact almost all aspects of manufacturing today’s cars are controlled by computers and this includes the servicing schedules.
The services that are written out in your cars hand book, have been designed to give the best possible Smart Car Servicing schedule, so you should not really vary from that by giving your car extra oil or filter changes.
Drivers neglect their car servicing plan why?
As I have stated earlier today’s cars are better built and more reliable than the cars say ten year ago and before. They have the ability to run for much longer periods that their older counterparts. The only exception to this in my opinion is that we have more problems with the cars electrics than before, and that is because modern cars have more of them (car electrics).
The thing that some drivers neglect is to have their cars serviced at the correct periods according to their Servicing a Car manual. We often get cars in for servicing and when we stamp and enter the details into the servicing booklet we find that they have missed out a service completely, and when we sometimes question this they simply come out with some excuse, such as the previous garage forget to fill it in. I do not believe this and it also important to keep a Car Servicing history to keep up the value should the owner ever want to sell the car.
Some car owners ignore the service book completely?
You would be surprised how many drivers do not have a service book or have lost them. Many car owners are guilty of this. As luck would have it, most good garages have a car service times and repair schedule times computer, we at Pellon Auto-centre here in Halifax use the Auto-Data computer software for all our mechanical work timings and service schedules. This means that we do not get stuck if a customer does not have a service schedule book for their cars.
Another problem in our busy world. So, is that people do not have their car serviced at all ! Consequently, the end result of this is that although the car will perhaps keep on running, then it will inevitably start breaking down at some stage or another.
In most cases the warning light will come on for the particular problem that may arise.
The common lights to illuminate are the oil warning lights and the brake warning lights. When a car is regularly serviced these parts are checked and any problem will be rectified for example oils will be changed and brakes will be checked and any problems will be rectified, such as replacing worn out brake pads.
When the car is not serviced then these problems will become exaggerated and lead onto to more damaged parts. A car with a low oil level could lead onto a damaged engine or cylinder head. Worn out brake pads will inevitably lead onto damaged brake discs or burned out wheel cylinder’s, once again leading onto a much higher garage charge. So, than they would get if they did not Drivers Avoid Car Servicing.
Some other things that may affect your car
Other things that could go wrong would fluid changes. On a very big service some car manufacturers recommend that the cars fluid should be changed. These are things such as transmission oils, brake fluids. not forgetting, the engine coolant levels and steering fluid levels. Of course,these are all things that are checked or changed while Car Servicing. Importantly, all of which could be critical if neglected and the drivers Avoid Car Servicing.
The one thing that would give you big problems though is as I have stated earlier. Your ENGINE OIL. You should at least give your car an oil and filter change. This is the very least you should but this could stop your engine blowing. Especially,on the way to the airport for your valuable holidays. I do not really recommend it ! But even if you change the oil and filter yourself, then please do it, a car with a blown up engine is not worth anything to anybody.
Garage servicing does other things
Other things that a garage will do for you during Car Servicing. Of course, is things like changes your wheels round. Thus will ensure, a better wear out of your tyres. Also many garages are now in nationwide schemes and only fit the best parts.
Using low quality spare parts for your cars servicing
This is a cost saving that is false economy ! So, will it really save you money. By fitting your own parts from the local corner accessory shop. Inferior parts will wear out quicker. This is most common to see on tyres. Cheap car tyres will wear out in a faster time than a leading make, say such as Michelin tyres, and this has been proven time and again. A little extra money will give you much better value in the long run
So respond to that check engine oil light on the dash
When the check engine oil warning light, or brake warning light goes on. Your car will still be operational. But please do not ignore it and put it off to for another day.So eventually, its then that you spend quite an amount of money. Naturally, on the car and you regret your negligence. When the check engine light, or any other warning light comes on. Urgently, schedule an appointment with your garage and start a new campaign for your car. So, to have regular Car Servicing.
