Major and Minor Car Service

The greatest method to conserve money and fuel is to periodically maintain and service your vehicle.

What is a major car service?

Major car service consists of replacing the transmission and differential oils, that lubricate the ring and pinion gears which carry power from the driveshaft to the wheel axles. This is a significant maintenance task. It is combined with testing and refilling brake and clutch fluid, tappet clearance, etc. that must also be adjusted to ensure that the most crucial components of your engine continue to function at their best. A few of the other necessary extras include checking and replacing the lubricant in the wheel bearings.


Your vehicle needs to undergo a major service after two minor ones, or roughly every three years or 30,000 kilometers, depending on the vehicle, manufacturer requirements, and engine type. Some of the items that need to be replaced include timing belts, cabin and fuel filters, and spark plug replacement. You can find out exactly when you need these services from your manufacturer's logbook.

It is sometimes referred to as a basic or general service, and it can be a part of the logbook service.

Why is automobile servicing so important?

It's crucial to maintain your car serviced with the manufacturer's handbook or logbook because regular maintenance can assist in identifying potential issues before they materialize. Critical vehicle components will undergo necessary inspections during servicing to ensure that they don't fail you when you need them most. Frequent major and minor car service and maintenance gives customers assurance that their car is safe to drive.


You think you will be saving if you skip your vehicle's annual maintenance in an effort to save a few bucks. This is just a false economy. In the long run, it will cost you a lot. Maintaining your car can help find problems before they become expensive and difficult to fix. Also, it will be useful at the gas station. A car's engine runs more smoothly and efficiently with new oil and air filters.


Being able to demonstrate a consistent, routine servicing history with a reputed service shop will significantly increase your vehicle's resale value when the time comes to sell it.


Simply said, keeping up with major and minor car services with proper maintenance will extend the life of your car. Also, a car that has a full-service history or proof of regular maintenance is more likely to sell for more money when you're ready to sell it.
