Car Service at 2U Tyres in Petersfield

It’s important to service your car regularly. If you maintain your car or van, you will keep it running reliably.

We used to see our customers at least twice a year for a service to their vehicle in our Petersfield garage. But, because of advances in technology and fully synthetic oils, those service schedules have been extended. Often to the detriment of the vehicle. In fact, some manufacturers recommend that you only need to have your car serviced every 30,000 miles! 

The demands of leasing companies and fleet operators, who are often the manufacturers biggest clients, have heavily influenced these huge mileages between servicing. However, for regular use, these extreme mileages between servicing your car adds to the wear and tear of your vehicle. As well as reducing the life of your engine.

How often should I service my car?

As mentioned above, some manufacturers have extended service schedules. As a responsible garage in Petersfield, we recommend you should service your vehicle at least every 10,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first.

This way we pick up potential problems earlier, and so minimize expensive repairs. Servicing your car or van regularly also adds to the reliability of your vehicle. There are many expensive vehicle engine repairs needed, often as the result of poorly serviced vehicles.

Oil sludge is a common problem that we see. Oil sludging can be avoided by changing the engine oil and filter more frequently.

Oil sludge is a particular problem in vehicles with a diesel engine. Diesel fuel accumulates in your engine oil because of the way your DPF regeneration works. Or, more precisely, failed DPF regeneration attempts.

When your oil becomes too sludgy, it blocks the oil galleries that deliver oil to the engine’s crankshaft and pistons. This then causes excessive wear and can ultimately destroy your engine. You can avoid oil sludging by servicing your vehicle more frequently.

Regular car services also help us spot mechanical failures before they become enormous problems that could cause breakdowns or accidents. Regular servicing identifies potentially dangerous wear on vital steering, suspension, and braking components in your car.

What we included in a full service?

Every car or van service is slightly different depending on engine and transmission type. However, all vehicles have similar components that need regular attention to keep them performing safely and reliably.

We are a member of the Good Garage Scheme. So, we follow their service schedule, which was written in partnership with the Office of Fair Trading. The full service schedule ensures that all important areas of your vehicle that should get attention, do.

  • Oil and filter change
  • Check & top up fluids
  • Check battery & alternator belt
