Car Servicing

Handing over your car for its annual car service to a local garage is a gesture of trust. Yes there are a number of local garages out there in Pontypool that provide adequate services, but it is important that you take your time before settling on a local garage you are certain will not disappoint you by either doing a mediocre job or by making errors that lead to substantial repairs.

Experienced Local Garages Pontypool

Looking for an experienced mechanic might seem like a bit of an obvious thing to consider, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. It’s one thing if a local mechanic has been servicing cars for 25 years and quite another if a car garage has been in existence for the same length of time. The number of years the said garage has been trading doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a great establishment as it might have employed several mechanics during that time. Choose wisely!

Highly Recommended Local Garages

Never underestimate the power of local recommendations as they could save you a lot of costs. Make some enquiries amongst your family, friends and even Facebook about the experiences they’ve had with the various local car service garages and which ones stood out regarding both customer service and excellent work.

Online Reviews For Local Garages

If your family and friends can’t help, then you can go online and find which car garages are highly rated. PARC Motors Pontypool, for instance, is renowned locally for its excellent service both regarding how they handle cars as well as how they treat their customers. Pay more attention to online customer reviews as this information is more honest and very helpful.

Garage And Servicing Costs

Prices that seem too cheap should raise eyebrows regarding the quality of service you may get. Very high prices, on the other hand, are wasteful because you might possibly get the same service for less. What you should be looking for are great services that are priced fairly. Compile a list of suitable car garages and compare their prices and pick up the phone or check the websites.

Organised And Clean Garages

What with all the grease and oil they deal with, finding a spotlessly clean garage is rather impractical and to be honest a little foolish. But it is important that car garages maintain a standard level of cleanliness and organisation instead of being filthy and messy. You’ll be certain that a clean, organised garage won’t lose any parts or use wrong parts – hopefully.

Obviously as an expert driver, you are encouraged to try to understand a couple of common issues that may affect your car and its day to day operation. With increasing technological development in every vehicle produced nowadays, the chances of being stranded by problems are reduced drastically over time. But remember, it is still necessary that you can recognize an abnormality or unusual behaviour when on your travels.

A vital part of your car’s regular maintenance that helps everything run smoothly is an oil change. There are many fundamental things that you must know relating to getting your car oil changed and how often. Car drivers are often confused when it comes to having their vehicle’s oil changed, so below are 6 essential things to know regarding car oil changes.

Why Do Cars Need Oil Changes

Your cars engine needs oil to run efficiently and avoid developing difficult and costly problems in the future. There are 3 common reasons your engine needs motor oil. Firstly, the oil lubricates all the moving parts to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. Secondly, it prevents overheating by minimising the friction of the moving parts, transferring the heat, and absorbing secondary product from combustion. Thirdly, a good oil level keeps everything operating properly so that the engine system does not develop a fault when your oil level gets too low.

When Do I Change My Cars Oil

Different cars have different engines, meaning that all different cars have different needs. If you unsure about this then talk to us at Pontypool Accident and Repair and we can advise. Call us on 01495 769700.

How To Check Your Oil

You should really check your car’s oil on a regular basis- and especially before any long journeys. Make sure that your oil is changed or topped up at the first sign of a leak. Some newer cars have built-in electronic oil monitors and do not have dipsticks for manual examination.

How To Choose Car Oils

In some more up to date cars, the weight of your vehicle’s engine oil is engraved on the cap where you add oil. If you are looking to get a quote for an oil change in Pontypool then please call us on 01495 769700.

When Do I Change Oil Filters

Does The Weather Affect My Car Oil

Why A Car Service Is Vital

Regularly servicing your car means that you are more likely to have a car that runs smoothly and efficiently and minimises the risk of it breaking down and incurring unexpected repair bills. You may think you can save money by not servicing your car, but in reality a service can pick up smaller issues with parts of the car where standard wear and tear require a little minor maintenance but, when left, can fast become a costly major repair or replacement.

There are two types of service for your car, which one you need will depend on your car’s mileage, age and when your previous service was carried out.

What Is An Interim Car Service?

An interim service at Pontypool Accident and Repair Centre includes several checks, parts changes and fluid top-ups. The changes include engine oil and oil filter, in addition wheel nut torque is checked and adjusted where necessary. We will also check and change the tyre pressure and top up the clutch fluid, power steering reservoir, brake fluid level and windscreen washer if required.

We will also perform checks on other parts of the car, including tyre tread depth, brake discs and brake pads. If any additional work is required on these parts we will get in touch with you before carrying out any additional work to make sure that you are aware of any additional costs that are incurred when carrying out the work.

What Is A Full Service?

A full service at PARC Ltd Group includes many additional comprehensive checks throughout the vehicle compared to the interim service. In addition to the checks, there are fluid top-ups and changes included. These include the air filter which is replaced based on the mileage and vehicle usage. Additional checks and top-ups include your coolant / antifreeze strength, the gearbox fluid, clutch fluid and axle oil. All checks and tops-ups depend on your specific vehicle and manufacturer guidelines. We will also check spark plugs during a Full Service and change them based on the mileage and manufacturer specification if required.
