When to service your car?
Does you car needs a service?
Description
When organising a car service, it is important that you establish what service includes. Generally there are three types of car services: 
1. Oil Change Service at regular intervals - to know when to get the oil changed in your car, you will need to consult the car owner guide or ask your car service centre technician. As a general guideline engine should be changed after every 10,000 miles. This service includes the checking of brake fluid level, anti freeze coolant, windscreen wash, power steering fluid, battery condition, lights, windscreen wipers, exhaust emissions, and tyre threads and pressure.
2. Interim Service  - The rule of thumb is that after every 6,000 miles your car should get an interim service.  This service performs all the work mentioned for the oil change service and can also provide additional full checks on brakes, steering system, shock absorbers and  suspension systems. For an additional charge, a 'green test' is performed. This test is designed to check the car emissions and to reduce the emissions. In this test there is fuel treatment, brake efficiency, lambda sensor check, emission check and carbon offset checks.
3. Full Service - After every 12,000 miles, or once a year, you must get a full service done on your car. In a full service, all the work mentioned in the oil and interim service is conducted. In addition the following work is also done - the wheel alignment test; wheel bearing check, belt check and brake fluid condition is checked.
That is the work that you can expect from Ichthus Motor services to do depending on the type of service that your are getting done. Older cars require more frequent service than new cars. Just in case we make replacements, we make sure that they conforms to the parts, as mentioned by the car manufacturer. We also ensure that the replacement parts will not invalidate the car's warranty. Neglecting getting the car serviced on a regular basis is going to reduce the life span of your car.
In the case of a diesel vehicle, the fuel filter is replaced. In the case of a petrol engine, the spark plugs maybe replaced. In addition, the air filtr is replaced and the wheels are balanced.
