How To Tell When Your Car Needs Servicing

Car servicing is a part of general vehicle maintenance that ensures you reach your destination every day without any issues. However, sometimes it can be difficult to tell when it’s time to take your car in for an inspection. Generally, a car should be serviced once a year, but occasionally it may be a good idea to take in when a problem arises. We explore the various causes of impromptu servicing below.

Fluid Leaks

Fluid leaks are never a good sign. It can be something minor like water from your air conditioner, fuel, radiator fluid or even brake fluid. These kinds of problems should be taken seriously. Therefore, if you noticed pools of fluid or liquid beneath your vehicle where there usually isn’t, then we advise you bring your car in for servicing. Our technicians can diagnose and repair a small issue before it becomes a major problem.

Unusual Noises

Clunking, scratching, juddering and screeches are all concerning when they emanate from your vehicle. Sometimes, it can just mean a bit of water on your fan belt, or a dry ball joint in your suspension. However, occasionally these kinds of noises can indicate a more serious issue. By taking your vehicle in for car servicing when you hear an unusual noise, you can preemptively fix something that could cause major damage, or jeopardise your safety.

Dashboard Warning Lights

Warning lights on your dashboard are specifically designed to tell you when something is wrong. Oil lights, temperature gauges and all other lights on your dash tend to indicate when something’s wrong. That’s why it’s crucial that if you see an amber or red light appear on your dash, you bring your car in for servicing as quick as you can to remedy the problem.

Smoke & Poor Performance

Smoke and a loss of power are usually clear indicators that something is wrong. Whether it’s a drop in acceleration, inconsistent revs or plumes of smoke coming from your exhaust, it’s usually pretty clear that something isn’t working right. Car servicing can get to the bottom of issues like this to get your car back in working order, and prevent any breakdowns in the future.
