For 99% of the population, the car is a black box! We know that we must maintain it and that's important, but for the future is the great unknown. Also, we will try to be simple and pragmatic in order to enlighten you about the ""revision of the car "". Each car has a backlog of maintenance in which the manufacturer indicates for each of its models, which must be done on the car according to age, mileage and use that one in fact.
The review car usually consists of:
- A drain with oil filter change.
- The exchange of pollen filter if you have air conditioning.
- Upgrading of liquid (washing windows, coolant, brake, power steering ...)
- A reading of the memory of the electronic box of your car.
- A test drive.
- And finally checks on all the security features of your car (lights, car tires, brake pads, steering, shock absorbers, wiper blades ...)
Following the control of these elements, the professional can offer to exchange the parts that show signs of fatigue or who have reached the legal limits of wear (eg less than 1.6 mm for the depth of the grooves of your tires self ).
Then depending on model, age and mileage are in addition specific operations to meet the maintenance plan self defined by the manufacturer. Make your car review is therefore to be set as described above. So it is not at all be the same as a drain on your engine (emptying car is part of the revision of the car among many other operations).
So our advice when you request a quote, please specify what you want done on your car: a simple oil change or revision of the car.
At what point do I revise my car?
Depending on the model, you must review your car every 15,000, 20,000 or 30,000 Kms. Generally, diesel engines have to review every 20,000 kms.
In any case, even if you drive around with your car and it takes three years to make your 20,000 kms, the revision of your car is to make every two years in general. The owner's manual is the bible manufacturer of your car, it is important to refer to when you have questions.
What do they ""make the diagnosis electronics"" of the car in its review?
We have seen above, when doing a review of the car, we made ??a diagnosis electronics, but what?
Since 2000, the cars produced are becoming more sophisticated (better handling, better braking, less pollution, less fuel-intensive ...). To manage all this, there are computers in your car (so small computers) that verify the proper functioning of all these elements.
The diagnostic tool used to communicate with these computers, which in some way, govern your everyday car. Thus, when reading, for example, can verify the proper operation of engine components without having to disassemble or download programs to improve the characteristics of the engine. The average age of cars driving in France is 8.2 years in 2008. Extrapolating, a car 2 is concerned with the reading of the computers of the car by a diagnostic tool. This service is new and still little known. 15 years ago, it was not as complex. The revision of your car is very important and should not be neglected.
In reviewing the car is well protected and it protects itself from much more serious problems and therefore more expensive.
