Why do it?
Motor vehicles are so heavily relied upon and often, their purchase represents a significant financial investment. We all want our cars to be reliable and perform well, but if a car service does not take place regularly, it is very difficult for this to happen. Despite driving a car daily, many people do not have their car serviced regularly. Ultimately this can lead to significant and costly car repairs.
Increasing the life of your engine: The life of your car engine can be increased if the oil is regularly replaced. As time passes, engine oil loses its effectiveness. Ensuring that engine oil is changed at regular intervals will improve your car’s performance and contribute to engine longevity.
Is it road legal?
We work closely with a reliable and trustworthy local MOT specialist in Uppingham allowing us to get the whole job done.
Leave it with us and if there is anything that requires attention, we will contact you to ensure you are happy with the costs, get it sorted, then get it re-tested and ready for you to take home.
Keep it in check
This is really important. We have 5 simple rules to keep your machine in great condition:
- Make sure you have fluids in the car
- Drive it at least once a month
- Bucket, soft rag, and a car wash soap and finish
- Avoid parking the car on dirt or gravel
- Get it maintained properly, once a year, obviously by us!
What's that light on for?
When a person buys a car, he usually expects it to run well for a long time. To this end, car manufacturers have developed sophisticated computer systems that keep the car in check and help to keep it running smoothly. Those systems will also light up the check engine light when there is something wrong with the car. A car diagnostic is a test that tells a person what is causing the check engine light to turn on. Once the problem is identified using this system, the mechanic can go forward in fixing it.
We'll find it and fix it...
Most garages steer clear of these types of issues. Not us. We understand how frustrating a sticking window or dodgy headlight can be.
We resolve almost all our electrical issues in the time we estimate. However as it is always the case with gremlins in the machine, it may take longer.
Ultimately our goal is to fix it, which we do almost every time.
If your vehicle cannot return to run position after starting or if the interior fan is not getting power, it may be that the electrical portion of the ignition switch has become erratic or has failed. The entire switch assembly should be replaced to resolve this issue.
Back to an empty shell...
We probably only do 2-3 a year of these, but when we do we take pride in making sure it's done right.
