Frequently asked questions
+

What is a 'Full Service' on a car?

It involves thoroughly checking the fluids and components in the vehicle, to determine whether they need replacing, updating, or replenishing. Getting your car serviced will also help prevent larger jobs cropping up later on, thus saving you a lot of hassle and money.

+

When is my car due for a service?

The recommended service schedule for your vehicle will be outlined in your owner’s manual. However, the general rule would be that a full service be undertaken every 12,000 miles.

+

How often should you service your car?

Your car should receive a full service annually, and if you undertake a high mileage it should receive an interim service in between at the 6 month mark.

+

What is included in a Full Service?

A Full Service includes renewal or top-up of all major fluids including:

·      Oil

·      Coolant

·      Brake fluid

·      Automatic Transmission Fluid

A clean will be provided to:

·      Filters

·      Spark plugs

Other components that are also comprehensively checked are:

·      Suspension

·      Steering

·      Door locks

+

How long does a car service take?

A car’s full service can take around three hours to complete, if there are no significant issues encountered as they will of course lengthen the job time. You will ordinarily get your car back the same day but perhaps set a day aside for the service. 

+

What's the difference between a Full and an Interim Service?

An interim service focuses on items that require the most regular renewal and maintenance. A full covers all of these, plus those that require a less-frequent review.

+

What's the difference between a Full and a Major Service?

Many garages won't differentiate between a Full and a Major Service. Where they do, the Major is even more comprehensive and may include items such as a full drain and renewal of brake fluid and coolant.

What is a car service?

A car service is a service that looks the essential systems in your car. This is carried out by a mechanic who will look at everything in the car. They check to make sure the vehicle is safe to drive on the road - a legal requirement to have you serviced every twelve months.



Is a car service the same thing as an MOT?

An MOT is a standardised check with specific rules and regulations set by the government. A service not a legal obligation and is more for the benefit of your car.

It is important to note that a car service is not the same as an MOT. The similarities are that many of the same parts and systems are inspected during each.

A car service is carried out and fully controlled by the mechanic or garage carrying the work out.

This means that the pricing will change from garage to garage alone as well as from car to car, much like any other repair work.



What are the different types of services?

The two different types of services are an interim car service and full car service. As each service will change from garage to garage, they will carry out different checks and look at different parts. A car service is a full diagnostic that looks into the health of a car. This it is not a service where specific repairs are included.

Interim checks every six months before a full service will highlight if there is a minor problem. It will help you resolve the issue before it gets any worse. If you do not have an interim check and you have an issue, it may get worse, meaning leaving you paying more money when it is eventually discovered in the full car service.

Alongside this, it is vital that you are able to talk to more than one garage before completing the job. You should compare price and how thorough the checks will be.


The list below shows what garages will check during an interim or full service. However, it is always worth checking before you book your car in as some garages may not cover what is listed.



What is Checked in a Full and Interim Car Service?

  • Oil and Oil Filter Replacement
  • Brake Fluid
  • Antifreeze Coolant
  • Windscreen Wash
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Lights
  • Windscreen Wipers
  • Battery Condition
  • Charging System
  • Exhaust System
  • Tyre Tread and Pressure
  • Full Brake Check
  • Steering Check
  • Shock Absorbers Check
  • Suspension Check
  • A full car service also includes:
  • Auxiliary Drive Belt Check
  • Wheel Alignment Check
  • Wheel Bearing Check
  • Wheel Balance
  • Brake Fluid Condition
  • Fuel Filter (Diesel)
  • Spark Plugs (Petrol)
  • Air Filter
  • The majority of these parts and systems are checked during a full car service or interim service. If your car needs a top up of motor oil or any other repairs, you will have to pay extra.
