Car Servicing Explained: What Happens During A Car Service?

Checking oil levels

A full car service isn’t a legal requirement, but it’s a great way to keep your car in good condition. Annual car servicing will ensure that your vehicle is safe, topped up with fluids and less likely to need repairs. Of course, all vehicles can develop problems over time, but regular servicing will help reduce this possibility.

What Does A Full Service Include?

Full car servicing involves a few things. In fact, depending on your vehicle there could be over 50 checks and adjustments made. The basic processes that all vehicles receive include:

The extensiveness of the service will depend on exactly what model your vehicle is, as different motors will have different components. The amount of things that need to be done will vary by mileage, vehicle condition and the time since your last service. The amount of work that’s done may affect the final cost, as any parts required won’t be included in the price.

What’s The Point In Car Servicing?

Regular car servicing keeps your vehicle in good condition. While your MOT will ensure that your vehicle is safe to be used on the UK’s roads, a service goes a step further. The overall health of your car will be improved significantly. You may also be lucky enough to discover problems with your car early, meaning they are much cheaper and easier to fix. Even something as simple as an oil change can avoid huge potential repair costs down the line.

Can I Do A Car Service Myself?

Probably not, no. You need a mixture of the right skills and equipment to carry out a full car service. If you’re not an experienced mechanic, you risk causing damage to your vehicle. It’s best to leave this complex process to the professionals. However, you can help to keep your car running smoothly in between services by topping up fluids every so often, as required. You should also make a habit of checking your tyres regularly, particularly before long journeys.
