Spring Car Servicing-Treat your car to a Spring Treat with a good service

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 Spring Car Servicingwe 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

Britains Motorists-forking out hundreds on unexpected car repair costs – Easier (press release)

Britains Motorists

Britains Motorists motorists forking out hundreds on unexpected car repair costs Easier (press release) British motorists forked out hundreds of pounds last year repairing whining engines, wonky wheels and patching up scrapes and dents, according to a recent…

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Car Servicing has been put on the back burner by Britains Motorists?

So, in this good article. Hence, by the” countrywide independent garage scheme” . They carried out a straw poll of 100 UK motorists. Consequently they found that many of them had car repair bills of up to £500! In fact 64% of them, to be precise. Of course, this is no surprise to me . As I believe that many UK motorists have failed to have their cars serviced, in the past two years.

This neglect will lead to all kinds of problems affecting  their cars and the cars performance. We see the effects of this all the time, but I think that the most common problem is the brakes. If the cars brakes are checked on a service, then the usual things that need replacing are the pads, this together with a good brake cleaning is usually all that is required.The problem then is that if the car is not serviced, then the Brake pads wear even further down before getting down to the metal plate. This then affects the brakes especially the Disc Brakes.

New Brake Discs and Car Brake Pads fitted

 

then becomes metal on metal then the discs get damaged and they may need replacing. Other problems include the brake cylinders overheating and leaking and the problems can go on and on, always leading to a bigger repair bill for the UK motorists.

This is also a problem with the modern engines. The engines these days are controlled by a computer system in the car and if the filters and oil are not changed then the parts that are part of the engine management system can start to fail and the engine light will illuminate in the cars dashboard, often causing panic amongst the drivers who come into us garages to have the problem checked out. Sometimes the problem is a simple one and the car only requires an oil and filter change and other times it could be more complicated, but in the main most of the causes are due to the car not having a service and general neglect.

Although we are not members of the country wide garage scheme, we are a member of the Unipart Car Care Centres (UCCC), but we all share the same thoughts and know what the problems are likely to be if the car is not serviced.

Mot will find any mechanical problems

 

Another slightly worrying trend amongst car drivers is the concept of using the annual MOT Test as a gauge for the condition of their car. The MOT test is not the same as having a regular service, and although the test is fairly strict it is not the same as having a good service say once a year. The UK motorists  can then keep an eye out on such things as your oil levels and tyre pressures and check your own light bulbs.

We all understand that money is tight but in my opinion the failure to service your car will lead to the UK motorists having bigger problems and bigger repair bills.

  • Pay attention to your antifreeze:Unipart Car Care Centre Winter preparation
  • The antifreeze plays an important role of your car’s protection against a cold climate. A normal car consists of a solvent that has 50 percent water and 50 percent antifreeze in it. These percentages can vary with different temperatures.The colder the climate the less the antifreeze should be diluted.So you should pay some extra attention to them before the winter. If you do not have the mechanical knowledge to check it, you can take your car to the local Unipart (UCCC) service center.

    Unipart Car Care Centre Winter preparation Inspect the tyres:

  • You can gain plenty of advantages by having good winter tyres on your car. We recommend Apollo winter tyres. A good set of tyres will assist you to travel on the winter roads without any issues. The condition of the roads change during winter and it is a must for you to have a good set of tyres to get rid of the snow and rain on road. The depth and the pressure of the tyre should be in optimum level. The freezing air particles contract during the winter season and that will reduce the pressure of your tyres. So, it is a must for you to check the condition of your tyres before winter. If possible buy winter tyres or pop into your local Unipart depot for a free tyre check.

  • Your battery has the ability to perform many operations on your car. You will need to use some extra power from your car during the winter months because of the long dark nights and freezing weather and a good quality battery will assist you with that. Therefore you should make sure that your car battery is performing at a healthy condition before the winter.

  • A lot of dirt and dust will be settled on your windscreen during the winter. Therefore you should pay some extra attention to clean them and the windshield will take care of that.
