What is a car service
Let’s first discuss what a car service is, so you can understand the importance.
A car service is not a legal requirement like an MOT is, but it should be considered annually much like an MOT.
What is included in a car service
There are usually two levels of car service available; interim service and a full service. Each of these servicing packages will cover different aspects, but the general rule of thumb is an interim service should occur every 6 months and a full service once per year.
An interim service will generally include the following checks and enhancements:
- Check fuel filter
- Oil change
- Replacement oil filter
- Coolant top up
- Fuel filter check
- Check clutch operation
- Check gearbox operation
- Check brake pads for wear
A full service will involve more comprehensive checks which include everything in an interim service, with the addition of:
- Check coolant hoses
- Check cooling fan
- Replace air filter
- Top up gearbox fluid
- Top up battery
The difference between an MOT and a service
As previously mentioned, an MOT is a legal requirement, whereas a service is not. An MOT is a series of checkboxes that provide a pass or fail depending on the condition of your car. A car service is more of an optimisation, looking for ways to make your car more efficient and to prevent any unwanted breakdowns or problems occurring.
There are many things an MOT won’t cover as it only checks that the vehicle is in a roadworthy condition.
Benefits of regular car servicing
Keeps the internal components healthy
With regular maintenance, the internal parts are kept in good working order, meaning they are less likely to go wrong. When they do go wrong, they can be very costly, so servicing your car regularly can actually be better in the long run.
You car will run more efficiently
When the internal components are running smoothly, they will be much more efficient and use less fuel, therefore keeping your costs down. For example, tyres that have less tread are less efficient and therefore cost you more fuel in the long run.
It’s easier to sell the car
When the time comes to sell your car and upgrade to a newer model, if you have an up-to-date service book, this can make the process much easier and you are likely to receive a better valuation for your car. Without an up-to-date service book, the condition of your cars internal parts could be poor.
