#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.
