When Do You Need Car Servicing?Car servicing

To maintain the condition of your car, the experts at AutoQuest Redhill Ltd recommend that car owners follow the below recommendations to take advantage of our garage services:

  • Interim Car Servicing – This should be arranged for every 6-month period or every 6,000 miles accumulated
  • Full Car Servicing – We advise motorists to get a full inspection for their vehicle every 12 months or per 12,000 miles
  • General Car Servicing – Whenever your oil or oil filter needs to be replaced. Oil changes are usually required for every 10,000 miles

Many modern vehicles with state-of-the-art diagnostic computers will alert Redhill, Reigate and Surrey drivers to let them know when they require car servicing. Otherwise, the rule-of-thumb is to schedule a full service on an annual basis, however the recommended mileage can vary depending on the manufacturer. Our technicians are trained to carry out major-brand car servicing and garage services which observe the manufacturer’s manual and official service timeframes.

What Does Car Servicing Involve?

  • Operational tests, including the clutch gearbox, car battery, car horn and dashboard lights
  • Fluid top-ups, including brakes, clutches, power-steering reservoirs, windscreen washers and antifreeze levels
  • Drive shaft gaiters checked for cracks or leaks
  • Oil and oil filter drainage and replacements
  • Exhaust system checks for leaks and catalyst convertor fittings
  • Steering and suspension components assessed for rust or corrosion
  • Brake pads, shoes, discs, drums and hydraulics inspected for signs of wear
  • Air filter replacements can also be included for Redhill, Reigate and Surrey clients

During full car servicing checks, technicians will carry out in-depth examinations, including the condition of the car battery, lights, seat belts, electrical systems, tyre pressure and tread, steering and suspension systems, and shock absorber bounce checks. Wheel alignment and wheel bearing, engine cambelt, alternator and drive belt checks, fuel filter replacements and spark plugs may need to be replaced for Redhill, Reigate and Surrey vehicles with petrol engines.

Our garage services include green tests which are available to inspect your vehicle’s emissions, including the Lambda sensors, to measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system.

Air Conditioning Recharging

We undertake thorough inspections of air conditioning systems on top of our car servicing package. This will benefit Redhill, Reigate and Surrey drivers who get a lot of use out of their air conditioning systems during the warmer climate. Regular maintenance, including recharging or re-gassing, will ensure your air-con works efficiently when you need it.

Vehicle air conditioning units lose approximately 10% of their refrigerant gas per year. This is likely to happen if they are not in frequent use due to the cooler weather, which can affect the system’s overall performance. To prevent this from happening, our technicians advise that motorists follow their car manufacturers’ specifications to get their air conditioning units recharged every 2 years, by re-gassing and replenishing the lubricant.

At AutoQuest Redhill Ltd, our air conditioning garage services include the following:

  • Recharge or re-gas refrigerant levels based on manufacturers’ recommendations
  • Refill the oil required for lubricating air-con systems
  • Check the temperature, performance and identify any leaks
  • Clear any moisture or air from the system components

If you need repairs for air conditioning unit to be carried out, these are not included in car servicing packages. However, we can fix any leaks or faulty equipment as part of our competitively priced garage services.
