GENERAL MECHANICAL NEEDS

Regular mechanical car servicing can extend the life of a vehicle. The reason for this is simple - defects are found before they become catastrophic.

A small investment in routine car servicing and repair, plus a good inspection programme results in a good return on that investment due to:

  • Reduced cost of repairs over the life of the vehicle
  • Reducing unforeseen and possible breakdown risks
  • Reduced vehicle time off the road
  • Less inconvenience and less unforeseen expense
  • Less likelihood of car accidents
  • The possibility of greater fuel economy
  • The possibility of increased product life
  • e.g. tyres last longer, brake discs do not become scored and in need of replacement

  AIR CONDITIONING

A/C has been rapidly standardised over the last 10 years due to the major enhancement it brings to passenger comfort. However, drivers are only just realising that A/C systems do require regular maintenance.

Vehicle A/C systems will tend to lose refrigerant over time as refrigerant permeates through the physical joins between components.

Over time this will cause deterioration in performance.

Worse still, if you leave A/C operating with low refrigerant levels more serious problems can occur, lubricant circulation may be affected and air or moisture may enter the system.

The consequences could include:

  • Poorer fuel economy as the compressor remains engaged to attain lower temperatures
  • Internal corrosion caused by air or moisture reacting with refrigerant
  • Component or system failure

Autocare Automotive now offer a range of A/C related services.
