Owning a car carries with it a lot of responsibilities, and with regular servicing, the vehicle will perform as it should. Most people leave the servicing to a local garage and bring the car into the garage when a specified mileage is reached, and with that in mind, here is a brief description of a basic car servicing.
- Replacing the Engine Oil – This is essential and your owner’s manual will tell you at what mileage intervals this needs to be done. If you are looking for a garage that handles MOT, for example, a Google search will put you in touch with an approved MOT servicing garage.
- Checking the Brakes – Front and rear brake pads should be checked for wear, and replaced when necessary. Typically, a set of brake pads would last for 30,000 miles, although it does depend on the way you drive. With experienced car servicing in Leeds, an online search will put you in touch with an approved garage who can carry out the service.
- Brake and Power Steering Fluid – Both the brakes and power steering use hydraulic fluid and the levels should be checked and topped up if required.
There are a few other essential checks that need to be included in the service, and with regular servicing, your car will always perform as it should. If your car is older than 3 years, it will need to be MOT tested, and the servicing can be carried out prior to this.
