Seasonal ChecksTesting & Checking over your car for the seasons.
Most people are aware that they need to get their car checked before winter, but do you know that it is important to get a summer health check for your car too?
When you think about it your car tends to work hard in the summer with regular days out and maybe long drives to take you to your UK holiday destination, or to the airport. So it makes sense to make sure it is in tip top condition following the harsh winter weather.
Auto Care Services will carry out a summer health check on your car for just £19.95. This will include checking all lights, air vents, horn, battery, fluid levels including coolant, screen wash, steering and engine oil, plus brake pads and discs, wiper blades, tyre pressure and treads, engine drivebelt and finally the exhaust.
If you car has air conditioning it makes sense to have this checked and if necessary re-gassed at the same time. This can also be combined with a service for cost efficiency.
As autumn starts to turn into winter make sure you book your car into Auto Care Services for a Car Winter Check for £19.95
This will include checking and if necessary topping up your coolant level with a mixture of the correct type of antifreeze. Batteries are the most common cause of winter breakdowns. A battery more than five years old may struggle in the cold – it will be checked and replaced if necessary to avoid the inconvenience of an unplanned failure.
All lights will be checked and replaced if necessary.
Tyres should have at least 3mm of tread for winter motoring. They will be checked for wear and the pressure checked too. You might like to consider winter tyres for improved safety.
Now is a good time to renew worn wiper blades, yours will be checked and replaced if needed. The screen wash will also be checked and topped up with a 50% mix of a good quality screen wash to reduce the chance of freezing in frosty weather.
Autocare Services will also check air vents, horn, steering and engine oil, plus brake pads and discs, engine drivebelt and finally the exhaust. Just to note if your vehicle does need any additional parts or fluids we will let you know in advance of any cost.
