WHY DOES YOUR VEHICLE NEED A CAR SERVICE OR VEHICLE SERVICE?
Car parts wear with use. If the parts are well lubricated with good clean oil or grease this
reduces how quickly the parts wear. As the parts wear the filings, carbon and dust shift into the oil which
becomes sludge. The sludge blocks oil ways and prevents parts getting a good supply of oil. The sludge also
wears oil seals causing premature failure.
The photos show an engine oil pickup of a vehicle which its owner did not have the car serviced regularly. The oil pickup blocked with sludge and starved the engine of oil lubrication and damaged the engine. The engine was destroyed prematurely.
CLICK ON THE TYPE OF TRUCK REPAIR YOU REQUIRE:
Sludge clogged engine oil pick up. Oil changed approximately every 15,000 kms.
Same engine, valve area with sludge. Below, torn
steering boot allows ingress of water & dirt.
STEERING RACK BOOTS & CV BOOTS: If your boot perishes or splits (like the photo above)
it is important that you replace it as soon as possible. If you don´t, oil or grease will leak or flick out
and water & dirt
will get in. This can prematurely wear out the moving parts and instead of being a small repair will develop
into a part replacement which will be a lot more expensive.
We are a family business and have been in the business of car & truck repairs for more than 45 years.
We also provide an auto electrical service and other COF and WOF repairs.
We recommend the oil is changed every 10,000 kms.
