Are you thinking about giving your car a service? What kind of service do you have in mind? Basic, mid-range or major service? If you said Major service, then you have landed on the right page. Here’s all you need to know about the major auto repairs.
Major Service Elaborated
In terms of car service packages, a major service is the highest level; some garages refer to it as ‘a master service’ or ‘a gold service’. Every 24 months or 24,000 miles, a major service is advised. A major service is one of the most critical services that your car will receive; it is essentially a thorough inspection of the vehicle from top to bottom. Because specific elements of the car will have seen wear and tear or damage over time, the general check that is required after 24,000 miles of driving is critical at this stage.
A major car service includes everything in a full service plus additional in-depth checks, spark plug replacement, brake fluid, suspension, and fuel filters.
Do not be confused by the different names given to service plans by different garages; instead, think of your automobile servicing in terms of miles or months since your last service. It’s that easy; always double-check your quote to see what the garage includes in their service package.
Why do you need it?
- Engine oil: Your old, unclean, black oil is replaced with new, clean oil, which improves the efficiency and smoothness of your engine.
- Filters: Your car’s oil, air, gasoline, and pollen filters have all been updated, allowing it to run more efficiently.
- Spark plugs: To improve your fuel economy, your spark plugs are replaced.
- Brakes: We inspect, clean, and adjust your brakes as needed.
- Flush and change: Your car’s transmission, clutch, brake, power steering, and coolant fluids are all flushed and replaced, resulting in increased efficiency.
- Road test: All major car services include a road test to detect any issues that aren’t easily detected by simply viewing the engine and that may need to be addressed now or later.
- Safety examination: Your car will undergo a thorough safety assessment so that you may feel confident in it.
- Battery test: This ensures that your battery is still charging properly and will not require replacement anytime soon.
- Checks: On top of that, the gearbox, transfer case, and diff oil, as well as the wiper blades and all of your bulbs, are all checked.
