I’ll always go through costs with you before-hand so that there’s no surprises at the end of a service and I’ll be in touch if any further issues are spotted.

What’s Involved in a  Full Service?

Pre Engine Checks

Never to be overlooked, As part of a full service for your car our pre-engine check usually covers the following:

  • Check car history.
  • Check timing belt replacement interval.
  • Check for damage to bodywork, lamps and trims.
  • Check condition of all seat belts.
  • Check operation of interior and exterior lights.
  • Check operation of ABS and/or air bag warning lights.
  • Check windscreen washers and wipers.
  • Check horn.
  • Check operation of suspension dampers.
  • Lubricate all door hinges, locks, and bonnet catches.
  • Check fuel cap.
Checking under the bonnet

We’ll look under the bonnet to make sure that everything is working smoothly and as it should, generally we will cover the following:

  • Check cooling system.
  • Check anti-freeze protection.
  • Check brake fluid boiling point.
  • Check all auxiliary drive belts.
  • Check engine breather system.
  • Check vacuum pipes.
  • Check power steering operation and fluid condition.
  • Check full throttle settings and lubricate linkage.
  • Check battery level and lubricate terminals.
  • Check and top up all under bonnet fluid levels.

Because we are so familiar with BMW Minis and Fiat 500s we also have a secret list of checks that some garages may overlook if they are not specialists, such as common coolant system faults or the bypass valve.
