What is a car service?
A car service is like a routine check-up but for your vehicle. It might be as intensive as a 50-point checklist or can be a simple service and repair that takes care of the things susceptible to wear and tear. Its importance stems from the fact that your safety is largely dependent on your car. While you may experience the discomfort while driving and can fix the issues like tyre puncture and oil change, it is only a professional who can pin-point the problem and repair it. So the next time the engine light flashes, bring your car to KHN Services to get the help it requires.
What does a car service include? – Interim Service
The interim service is recommended at every 6 months or 6,000 miles, whichever is reached first.
The basic car service checklist includes engine oil and filter replacement, which also covers top-ups like windscreen additive, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid. For the engine, the general oil leaks, antifreeze strength, and the timing belt condition are checked and advised upon. The brake pads are examined for any major wear and tear, the steering rack gaiters and exhaust condition are also serviced. The clutch fluid level and oil leaks are also scrutinised.
Apart from the above-mentioned points, the car external lights, external lights, horn, wipers, and washers are also checked.
