The importance of servicing your car.


Why Servicing Your Car is Essential


A Car Service can involve up to 50 or more component and system checks and adjustments.


Your custom car service plan is based on the way you use your car. You pay for what you need and get a longer trouble free life from your vehicle. You get more and you pay less at Highway Auto Car Servicing Rockhampton (07) 4926 1303.

A correctly serviced and tuned engine will have a longer, more economical service life than one that is run into the ground with minimal or inappropriate attention. It can also pre-warn or potentially major problems with the engine and transmission.

And the best thing apart from having a fully functional, safe car is that with a complete service history, the car will be worth more when you sell it.
 

Your car runs a lot better when it is well looked after.

Oil reduces friction between mechanical parts in a car and thus reduces wear. Oil forms a barrier between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls, as well as working to help cool engine parts by transferring heat.
 

Your car's engine oil has a use by date of 6 months regardless of mileage.


You will be able to tell if your oil needs a change (a) if it’s been in the engine for more than 6 months or (b) by inspecting the oil dipstick. If the oil is healthy, it will be yellow to light brown in colour and clear. When oil is darker or has flecks in it or smells burnt, it is time to book into Highway Auto Servicing Rockhampton for an oil change.

Replacing engine and ancillary oils regularly ensures no impurities can build up. Over time, this build up can become abrasive or less effective and cause damage to your engine. When you bring your car into a Highway Auto Servicing for an oil change we will drain the oil, replace the filter and fill the engine with a suitable high quality oil as specified by the car maker.
