Once in a while, as car owners you have to service it. Auto service is a car maintenance practice that is usually done after certain conditions have been met or altered in an automobile. Number of kilometers covered after the last service, change of climate like winter and summer, dusty and mountainous journeys etc as some of these conditions. This is commonly known as auto mobile secheduling. The car might not have broken down or given any signs of faultiness but just that you have to run some checks. This kind of checks always involve changing a few things and cleaning some to ensure that the vehicle functions well.
Engine oil change is the most common maintenance practice that is carried out. This gets to be done at that time when the odometer has covered the number of miles or kilometers that it is supposed to cover from the previous service. It is usually five thousand, ten thousand or even twenty thousand kilometers or miles. Engine oil change must always be accompanied by oil filter change. One cannot leave this out because you can result into serious damages such as engine failure. If the kilometers are not yet covered and the oil level has gone down, it is advisable to top up the engine oil to the required level.
During an auto service another important thing that must be changed is the air filter and fuel filter. This is to say that all these are directly connected to the automobile engine. An engine is the most delicate and important part of a car. Without the engine the car will not be able to move. Therefore it must be well taken care of by changing the air, oil and fuel filters. The function of the air filter is to filter the air that is required by the engine for combustion to take place while fuel filter filters the fuel that is going to the engine for combustion to take place.
Car on motion gets to stop with the aid of brake pads. Faulty breaks may result to a lot of damage or even deaths. It is therefore mandatory that you have to change your brake pads when doing your minor or major service. This will aid in keeping you safe and avoiding accidents. If the brake pads are still in good condition then they will just have to be adjusted to make them fully functional.
Spark plugs are important to a car engine system. They provide the power needed by the vehicle. To make sure that the vehicle has got the right amount of power, you will need to change the spark plugs. With the faulty spark plugs the vehicle will have less power which will increase the fuel consumption.
