It is a common temptation to extend the time between services on the car in an attempt to save money. This is a false economy that can turn into a real horror story.
Why is regular car servicing important?
Your car starts to lose efficiency when things like spark
or glow plugs wear out, your air quality decreases if your cabin air filters
aren't replaced and potentially expensive conditions like oil sludge can build
up if oil is not replaced when due. This
can cost you money and that's before you get to worn safety items like brakes
and shock absorbers!
Watch our video here and find out why you don’t want to
stretch those service intervals.
One of the risks of not carrying out regular servicing on your car is the potential for oil sludge to build up in your engine.
Oil sludge is like a gel that sticks to your engine parts and blocks oil galleries preventing the normal flow of oil throughout the engine. Caused by a breakdown of over-stressed oil in an engine, it has become extremely common in vehicles manufactured from 1997 onwards.
