Car diagnostic computer

Modern cars are characterized by increasingly complex motor systems, and as a consequence, they have gained increased fuel efficiency and improved overall functioning, as well as reduced air pollutant emissions. Because of its complexity, the modern engine is controlled by a computer chip. Sometimes the computer can catch errors arising from the use of fuel of poor quality, engine overheating, prolonged driving at maximum speed or with heavy loads.

Changing your engine oil

Oil changing is a basic requirement in servicing you car which allows you to maintain engine performance and increase its durability. During driving, oil is polluted, and as a consequence, it loses its efficiency and therefore cannot guarantee proper engine lubrication. Therefore, it must be replaced regularly. Changing engine oil Oil replacement frequency is determined by the vehicle manufacturer , depending on the properties of the oil and engine characteristics . This information can be found in the service manual of the vehicle. Most modern cars require an oil change after driving 15,000 – 20,000 km, or after one year . Frequency is also determined by certain factors such as oil consumption by the engine and driving conditions . During city driving over short distances with frequent stops, and also when driving at high speeds, the engine is working under difficult conditions. Therefore, in these circumstances, it would be recommended that you change the oil more often than every 15,000 – 20,000 km. Considering the pace of modern life, frequent oil changes can only benefit both driver and car . You can either buy it at our place or provide your own . In addition, under a free inspection before any repair, our mechanics will check the oil level in your car. If it is too low, but it doesn`t require replacement yet, they will advise you to refill it. You can always check the date on the sticker left on the cap in your car.

Car cooling systems

The cooling system in your car keeps the engine temperature down by absorbing the heat generated during the combustion of fuel. Car cooling systems The main elements of the cooling system are:
-radiator cap
-radiator fan
-expansion tank
-car heating system
-rubber hoses

Note ! Never open the radiator cap or surge tank cap when the engine is still warm. Hot fluid can spurt violently because cooling systems are working under high pressure. Wait at least 20 minutes for the engine to cool before opening the cover.

Cooling System Malfunctions The thermometer on the dashboard should show when your engine is overheated. Also, a warning light may flash and vapour may come out of your car bonnet. In this case, stop the car and turn off the engine immediately. Let it cool before you check the cause. You may also find puddles of fluid under the car, especially after parking, or your cooling system may need frequent addition of refrigerant.

If you have noticed any of the above problems, it may be due to one of the following factors:
-blocked or leaking radiator
-the outer surface of the radiator is littered with insects, leaves and other debris
-the alternator belt may be broken or slipping off
-leaking or blocked hoses and tubes
-leaking or damaged water pump
-faulty radiator cap
-leaky heating system
-closed thermostat

In case of overheating, you should take the car for servicing as soon as possible. Replacing the rubber is less expensive than replacing the engine.

Engine and gearbox

In modern cars , there are two types of gearboxes - manual and automatic. The use of manual gearboxes involves the following items: clutch, clutch pedal and gearshift lever . The clutch is responsible for the transfer of power from the engine to the gearbox. This is done by means of the clutch disc, the surface of which is made of the material used in the brakes . As time goes by, the surface of the clutch disc wears out and should be replaced regularly.
