Car Maintenance in May

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

Generally, your car should be serviced once a year or every 10,000-12,000 miles. A full service is highly recommended although if the vehicle is regularly serviced then a basic service will help to keep it running smoothly and hassle free.

Seasonal maintenance
The warmer months of the year are the halfway mark in your yearly car-care schedule. For most vehicles equipped with all-season tyres, rotation every six months is required in order to balance tread wear along all four wheels. Also, banking on the traditional summer heat waves, check the coolant level when the engine is cold, keeping an eye out for any leaks.

Regular maintenance
As typical with every three-month service period, change the motor oil and filter. Some car owners’ manuals might suggest a thicker oil for summer driving than the oil grade used in colder months.

Keeping up with the regular maintenance schedule can help by preventing costly repairs of the cooling system, transmission system, drivetrain and other components. Preventive car care reduces wear and tear of the engine and other components that extend the life of your vehicle.
