Mechanical & Functional Repairs FAQs

Safety, and to prevent cascading adverse wear on other suspension components and tires.

Checking during normal servicing should be enough for newer cars, but It's a great idea to check it every fews weeks on an older car. The number one major engine problems we see are caused by water loss or cooling system failure.

Getting a tune-up would be a good idea if you have an older car and have never done one or if you notice a loss of power, fuel efficiency, etc. A tune-up can involve multiple services such as cleaning and gapping spark plugs or replacement if necessary, throttle-body cleaning, air-flow sensor cleaning, cleaning or replacement of the air filter, internal engine and/or fuel system cleaners. It’s best to have this done at the same time as an oil change if the internal engine cleaners are part of the tune-up.

Usually this is caused by some components of the cooling system failure such as a hose leak, radiator efficiency, radiator cap problem, radiator fan, faulty thermostat/ water valve, etc.  Your engine can also overheat from other issues such as low oil level but hope that’s not the case!

The older the car, especially with recent engine work, the more often you should be checking it (weekly). For newer cars it is not necessary to check it as often, but still a good habit (every couple months).

This is different from model to model. Consult your user manual for the manufacturer's recommended service interval.

Let's hope this doesn’t happen to you, but the main cause we see is because of cooling system problems, whether that be from a hose leak, radiator efficiency, radiator cap, radiator fan, faulty thermostat/ water valve.

Firstly the right kind 🙂 ie. Petrol or Diesel engine. Secondly some of the more expensive types of diesel, for example, have extra additives that can assist with better part lubrication and performance.

 For petrol engines, it's the same in terms of additives, but also different octane levels such as 91, 95, and if it's an ethanol blend can be better suited for some models.  Generally, we would recommend to go with the higher octane it is available.
