Interim Vehicle Service in Essex
Full lights check – Bulb replacement as required
A complete lights check is critical for driving safely on the road. Our car service includes inspecting all external lights, including headlights, taillights, brake lights, indicators, and fog lights. Any bulbs that are faulty or nearing the end of their lifecycle will be reported to the customer, ensuring best visibility for both you and other drivers. Functional lights are essential for signaling your intentions and maintaining visibility in various driving conditions.
Full engine level checks
Engine liquids play a vital role in the smooth operation and long lifespan of your vehicle’s engine. During our check, the levels of important fluids such as engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid will be assessed. Maintaining proper fluid levels helps to prevent engine overheating, lubricates components, aids in efficient braking, and ensures clear visibility. Frequent engine fluid level checks help find any possible leaks or issues, allowing for speedy repairs and reducing the risk of costly engine damage.
Replacement oil and new oil filter
The engine oil is the lifeblood of your car’s engine, providing lubrication, cooling, and protection against wear. Through time, engine oil becomes contaminated and loses its effectiveness, this can lead to increased friction and potential damage. During a Quick Fix Garage service, the expired oil is removed, and a replacement, high-quality oil is added along with a fresh oil filter. This promotes optimal engine performance, improves fuel efficiency, and extends the life of the engine by minimising friction and wear on essential internal parts.
Tyre tread and pressure checks
Tyres are the single point of contact between your vehicle and the road, making them vital for safety and performance. Regular tyre tread and tyre pressure checks ensure that your tyres are in good condition and properly inflated. The tread depth is checked to confirm it meets legal requirements and provides adequate grip, especially in wet or slippery conditions. The correct tyre pressure helps with stability, handling, and fuel efficiency while minimising the risk of blowouts and uneven wear. Our service enhances road safety, improves handling, and can even save you money on fuel consumption.
A car battery is responsible for powering vital electrical systems within your vehicle, such as the ignition, lights, and various accessories. The battery examination evaluates its health and charging capacity, ensuring it is in good condition and capable of reliably starting the engine. The Quick Fix Garage service involves inspecting the battery terminals for corrosion, checking the voltage and charging levels, and analysing overall battery performance. Regular battery checks help prevent unexpected breakdowns, ensure reliable operation of the vehicle, and provide peace of mind.
