What Happens In A Normal Car Service

When you take a car for servicing, the most important component involved in the car service is changing the engine oil. Besides changing the engine oil the air filter is either cleaned or replaced depending on the car and its requirement. The headlamps, indicator lights, taillights are checked. The brake fluid is checked, and in case of power steering the power steering fluid is checked. That is if the car has a fluid assisted power steering system. The car may require tuning and resetting of the sparkplugs in case of a petrol engine. The emissions are checked and the car, both diesel and petrol are tuned to minimise emissions. Service centers look at the car's service history and may change parts that are required to be changed after a certain mileage.

The suspensions and shock absorbers are checked and the brake system is checked. The windshield wipers and fluid in the windshield wiper bottle is topped up. In the first three years of a new car, except for changing the engine oil and topping up the other fluids that are used very little needs to be done. Modern cars are heavily dependent on technology and service centers must have the requisite equipment to service these cars. Acclaimed car service centers tell customers which cars they are authorised and capable of servicing.
