People might go years before they ask, “What does a full car service include?” Well, there are lots of things included in a full car service. What is included also depends on each car and it’s specific needs. In general, you will be faced with a major car repair if you neglect have basic car service on a regular basis.

Here are a Few Things a Full Car Service Should Include:

  1. An Oil Change. This keeps your car running smoothly and your engine protected. Sometimes detergents are added with the oil to help keep the wear and tear down inside your engine.
  2. A Fluid Flush and Fill. This might include transmission fluid, radiator coolant, brake fluid, or transaxle grease. It’s good to replace these fluids periodically because as time goes by, they become less effective at lubricating the parts they are designed to protect. These parts will then start failing which could lead to major car repair.
  3. A Multi-point Inspection. Technicians will look over many parts of your vehicle including brakes, lights, mirrors, glass, fluids, filters, hoses, spark plugs, and other miscellaneous parts. This is a vital service because all of these things work in harmony to keep your car running smooth and steady
Before leaving on your holiday trip, be sure to schedule a full car service & take care of any needed car repair so you're not stuck waiting for a tow truck.

Your vehicle’s A/C system is important any time of the year. Many drivers think that the A/C is strictly for cooling air in the summer. In fact, it is almost more important to use it during the cold and rainy seasons. Ask your auto mechanic to explain how the A/C system works and to find out what does car ac service include.

Here’s How It Works:

  1. For cold air: A vehicle A/C system is comprised of a compressor, condenser, expansion valve and evaporator. Refrigerant (aka Freon) is compressed in the compressor and turns into a hot gas. In the condenser, this hot gas is cooled to a liquid state and travels to the expansion valve. As the Freon goes through the expansion valve it returns to a low-pressure gas and rapidly cools in the evaporator. A fan blows over the evaporator and cools the air that eventually blows out your vents.
  2. For warm air: Hot engine coolant is circulated through a small radiator, called a heater core. A fan in front of the heater core blows cold outside air over the fins. As this air travels over the heater core, it heats up and becomes the hot air which blows out your heater vents. If the heater core becomes clogged with rust or sludge, you will no longer have heat. Also, if there a small leak in the heater core, the passenger cabin can get steamy with fogged-up windows, or you may smell coolant (a sweet aroma).
Call your mechanic to find out what does car ac service include. Before it's too late, you should take care of any needed car ac repair before winter.
