Car Service Chingford

Is your car due for a service? Call Chigwell Motor Works today to schedule your car service in Chingford at a time that is convenient for you.

Third-party service centres are often seen as dealership alternatives where one can get the repair job done quickly and cost-effectively. But at Chigwell Motor Works, we offer more than just 40% off* on the dealership price.

We have a fully equipped workshop and licensed mechanics who specialise in servicing all models and makes. Just like dealerships, we use OBD scanners to run a full diagnosis and catch problems before they start to get worse. This is called preventive maintenance, and it can save you tons of money down the road.

Common Questions
When it comes to periodic car servicing, here’s what we do
#1 Look into the service history

When you bring your car to us, don’t forget to bring along your previous maintenance records. This will help us understand what your car has been through, what kind of repairs have been done and which parts were changed during the previous service.

Having this information allows us to come up with a tailored service package that includes specific jobs that your vehicle needs. For instance, if your vehicle had a coolant change during the last service, you don’t need it this time.

#2 Oil Change

Oil change is one of the fundamental jobs that are performed during a logbook service. Whether your car uses mineral or synthetic oil, we make sure it gets the right type and grade for optimal performance – as recommended by the manufacturer. We also replace the oil filter and filter seal to prevent any oil leakage in the future. For your vehicle’s best performance, we use only OEM parts and accessories.

#3 Filter and fluids

The air filter gets dirty depending on the driving conditions. Our mechanic will inspect the air filter and will recommend replacement only if it’s necessary. However, for best acceleration and fuel efficiency, it is advised to get your air filter changed every 6 months.

Our mechanic will also look into the level and quality of various car fluids, such as coolant, brake oil and transmission oil. If the level has dropped or the oil has changed colour, we will top off or add fresh oil to enhance your vehicle’s performance and longevity.

#4 Wheel Alignment & Balancing

Wheel alignment ensures your vehicle drives straight, and the tyres wear out evenly. And wheel balancing is to ensure your wheels rotate perfectly without the vertical wobble. We will perform wheel alignment and balancing in our facility and can also fix any knicks or dings in the rim for an additional charge.

#5 Tyre pressure

Underinflated or overinflated tyres impact your driving experience in a bad way. While underinflated tyres make your car work harder than it should, with overinflated tyres you run the risk of a blowout at high speeds. Our friendly mechanics will make sure your vehicle leaves the facility with recommended tyre pressure as per the user manual.

#6 Test Drive

As a final check, our mechanic will take your car for a spin to make sure everything is working properly. In case a problem surfaces, we will give you a proper diagnosis report and repair estimate so you can make an informed decision.

Car servicing is an important part of your car’s life cycle. You must never skimp on getting your car serviced, no matter the circumstances. If you are too busy to drive into our facility, we can arrange a pick-up and drop-off in Chingford.

DIY Car Service - Should you do it on your own?

Some car owners like to service their vehicle with their own hands, which is a good move only when you have the tools and training to do so. We have fixed many DIY failures over the years, and we see the same pattern repeating. For one, they give up halfway through the job because they couldn’t find the replacement part in the store or they couldn’t remove a bolt that had hardened over time. In some cases, the service job would go south and blow up everything else.

 

If you are not sure about what you are doing, bring your car to us and get it repaired by experts. However, if you can pull off a DIY service/repair job, here are a few things that you must keep in mind.

  • Don’t use too much force to remove a bolt that is stuck. Use lubricants to loosen it up or heat to melt it off.
  • Always prefer OEM parts over aftermarket replacements
  • Make sure the car is jacked up on a levelled, concrete surface
  • For roadside repairs, keep your hazard lights on at all times to alert other approaching vehicles on the road.
