We’re THE name in radiator repair. We’re up for all kinds of radiator repairs for your vehicles in Northgate. We’re as good at it as our reputation. Try us to believe us.
1. Is regular car maintenance necessary?
Yes, it is absolutely necessary to maintain the health of your car, especially that of the engine. We recommend that you schedule your car’s maintenance and service if not more, then at least once a year. Alternatively, you must schedule it every 10,000-12,000 miles, if that comes earlier than a year.
Besides this regular servicing, you must also pay attention to anything that seems unusual, like a funny smell or whirring noises that emanate from any part of your car. If you do find any such noise or smell, please get your car checked ASAP.
2. Is there a time-frame for regular service of my car radiator?
Yes, there is, and it is prescribed within the owner’s manual of the car. While that is the rule, it is also a general practice to the radiator and the coolant checked by our radiator repair service in Northgate each time you have driven around 30,000 miles or every five years, whichever occurs first.
3. Do I need to service my car’s air conditioner even if I go for the car’s annual maintenance?
We do recommend you to get its serviced every two years over and above the annual maintenance. It ensures that it is working properly in all seasons by ensuring better and longer component life and function.
Northside air conditioning service, as a rule, works on the 25 point system check, which needs to be adhered to strictly. We also perform complete evacuation; oiling and dying (if found to be required); recharging the system to adequate level; as well as the system performance test.
4. What are the indications of a damaged car suspension?
Just like most things in your car, a damaged suspension also gives out clear indication when damaged. Here are some things you should look out for.
- The car pulls to either side while driving.
- You can see that one of the corners seems to be sitting low when the car is parked.
- Steering becomes difficult.
- If you feel every bump on the road (a clear sign that you need to check your vehicle’s front/rear shock absorber checked)
- You feel the car squatting toward the back while accelerating
- Even the lightest of braking makes your car nosedive.
- You feel too much body roll on the curves.
It’s time to get the suspension checked if any of this is happening.
5. Is log book service good for me?
If you are getting it done from a reliable service provider, it is the best thing you can do to save money. We service your vehicle according to your vehicle service log book as provided by the manufacturer. This is done to upkeep your vehicles’ warranty. That allows you to skip the expensive service at the manufacturer’s agency and choose an affordable but reliable service like us.
6. When do I know it’s time to replace my car’s brake pads?
You should generally take it as a given that the brake pads will start to wear out at some 20,000 to 30,000 miles. But that is not an absolute figure. There are external factors that influence this time frame.
What you need to keep in mind is that if you face any usual screeching/grinding sound (especially if it is high-pitched) or obvious difficulty in braking, it’s time to see a car brake specialist in Northgate.
