Engine oil lubricates the internal engine components to protect them from heat and friction. However, with use and over time, the engine oil wears out and loses its lubrication properties.
Therefore, it is important to change it from time to time.
To ensure your engine runs at peak efficiency, our mechanics will use the recommended oil grade for your car. Using the wrong oil grade can reduce the performance at best and cause irreversible damage at worst.
Whether it’s an oil filter, air intake filter or cabin filter, its job is to trap contaminants. Over time, the filters get clogged and need replacing. Our mechanics use OEM filters so that your vehicle performs as intended. Also, using OEM parts is mandatory if you want to protect your vehicle’s warranty.
If your vehicle is out of warranty period, you can use aftermarket replacement filters to save a few bucks, if you will.
Other Fluids under the bonnet
Besides engine oil, there are other fluids that require regular topping off or changing. These include coolant, brake oil, transmission oil, clutch cylinder fluid, steering fluid(if your car has a hydraulic steering system), etc. These fluids are changed at certain intervals as indicated in the user manual, unlike the engine oil which is changed at every service.
Tyres and Rims
Uneven tyre wear is a sign of poor wheel alignment. The purpose of a wheel alignment job is to ensure that the front tyres make even contact with the road and your vehicle drives in a straight line. Our mechanics will check your tyres and rims for damage or abnormal wear and will recommend what’s best for your vehicle. Our mechanic will also inflate the tyres to correct pressure so you can enjoy superior handling and fuel efficiency.
If you get your vehicle serviced at recommended intervals, you will never have to worry about the breakdown. However, in case you find yourself stranded with a stalled vehicle, call Chigwell Motor Works for rapid breakdown recovery assistance, followed by affordable repairs.
