Your Car In The Mechanic Shop

Taking your car to the mechanic shop could be a big head ache, but is not a big problem if you take it regularly to be checked.

If you have a new car it is obligatory to take it to the shop after 1000 kilometers of travel, then your car needs to have the oil changed, this always includes the filter, normally after that you need to go back to the mechanic shop when you complete 5000 kilometers of travel.

In this visit your car is going to have a little better check, again the oil and oil filter are going to be changed and also any noise that you, as the driver of the car, have heard it has to be fixed

Normally they check the level of any fluid in your car, this includes transmission, gears, battery and even wipers water level, also your brakes are going to be checked.

Is very unusual that the brake pads need to be replaced for a new ones because they normally last 10000 kilometers, it is possible that the brake pads last 15000 kilometers, this depend exclusively of your driving.

Some people brake a lot in the motorway and also inside the city so the pads finish quicker than the ones who does not brake a lot, speaking about brakes you may need to have in your mind that the brakes are the most important part in your car, well everything needs to be working properly but if your brakes fail you are actually risking your live.

After 10000 kilometers if you have your brakes checked it is possible that you need to change the disc brake too, in addition the drum brake is normally rectified.

In this visit to the mechanic shop many other things need a proper check up, for example the injection system, if your car works with petrol (gasoline), if the car works with diesel the injection system is going to be checked after 20000 kilometers.

After 10000 kilometers of travel it is necessary also to execute what I should call the engine tuning and it consists in the verification of all the sensors that the car has in the motor such as oxygen, air, temperature, acceleration, etc, all this electronic devices that make your car work smoothly are very precise and any variation in them could lead to a failing in the machine

Last but not least the suspension needs to be readjusted, all the screws and nuts, and any part underneath the car floor, is very important that you do the checkups every 10000 kilometers so you don’t have to spend more money if your car breaks down for care lack. Remember is better the prevention than the remediation.

We have done a lot of miles on our car and it's still very reliable because of a service every 10,000km. You give sound advice. It's worth the money for peace of mind... particularly when my kids are relying on me to be there after school!
