Your vehicles cambelt ( or timing belt ) is one of the hardest working components in an engine. This is because it is made from a rubber based compound which deteriorates over time, it should be replaced every five years or as per the mileage intervals specified by the manufacturer. whichever comes first.
Whilst a cambelt replacement is certainly a complex and time consuming job, entrusting your car with us, because you can be confident that the work is being done by experienced technicians.
In all cases we will also replace the rollers and tensioner pullies that the belt runs around. Finally If the belt drives the water pump this too will be advised to replace.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time, reducing the temperature at which the fluid boils. For this reason it can result in increased stopping distances, reduced braking efficiency and even brake failure.
Every 2 years we recommend fluid replacement to maintain efficiency.
Transmission fluid is an over looked fluid service. Your transmission fluid acts as both a lubricant and coolant to your transmission system. Wear and tear breaks down the viscosity of transmission fluid, making it less effective and potentially causing damage to other components. Every 40,000 miles we recommend the oil is changed. On Auto transmission gearboxes we recommended that a fluid and filter replacement is changed along with a basic settings check of the electronics. VAG group use a differential unit called Haldex. This is recommended to have a fluid and filter service every 40,000 miles.
We recommend your air-conditioning system is serviced every two years so it’s running at maximum efficiency.
Over time gas leaks out of the system and as a result the cooling efficiency reduces and causes undue stress on the engine.
Our ‘F Gas’ trained Technicians will carry out a gas service and identify any potential problems in the system.
Does your car suffer from uneven tyre wear?
Correct wheel alignment improves road holding and maximises the life of tyres. As a result, Aligning only the front two wheels may resolve alignment issues for most vehicles, but aligning all 4 wheels will reinstate the vehicles original specification set by the manufacturer to help reduce all round tyre wear and fuel efficiency. Finally this ensures your safety through service.
DID YOU KNOW Variations in fuel quality, driving conditions and irregular maintenance and servicing certainly affect fuel economy and engine performance.
