To keep your car on the road for a very long time, you need to keep it serviced. Car servicing is a must annually. However, most owners choose to have a service once every six months.
Keeping your car serviced also helps you maintain the value of your vehicle. I’m sure you have all bought a second-hand car at some point and asked questions about service history. When your vehicle has a full comprehensive history, your new buyer will feel that it has well cared for. Although, it doesn’t matter how much you look after it without keeping a record.
Some items are changed at most service intervals. It depends on the manufacturer, but there are also items that are replaced every two years, four years or even based on mileage. Here is a list of parts that can be changed during a service.
Every service we provide will fall in line with manufacturer specification. They dictate what needs to be changed and when this is then printed out by our mechanics and used as a checklist for the service. This ensures we can give you a main dealer service at a local garage cost. As for our servicing price, it all depends on the make and model, but our services start from as low as £89.00.

Most cars on the road have a cam belt. This belt drives your engine and makes sure everything is in sync. When this breaks your vehicles vital internals smash into each other causing detrimental engine damage resulting in a new engine 95% of the time. This belt breaks because it has not been changed when the manufacturer recommends it.
Most car providers set the cam belt change at around 80,000 miles. However, there are a few that are required at 40,000 and some that go as far as 140,000 miles before a change is necessary. Although this item is a serviceable item, it isn’t covered in our costs above. This is because it can take anything between 2 and 6 hours to change the belt depending on your car. It also requires specialist tools and knowledge to complete the job without damaging the engine.
Don’t worry; we have that covered here at Childwall Fiveways Auto Centre. Our cam belt servicing is performed by engineers with decades of experience preserving your engine and the life of your car. Call us now on 0151 737 1520 and get a price for your cam belt. If you suspect your belt may have snapped, the best thing to do is not to start the car and call us right away.
