Car Engine & Maintenance – Look After Your Volvo or Toyota

  • Friday, November 24, 2017

ACC UK Ltd is a multi award winning Garage located in the heart of Farnborough. Each week we like to bring you tips on maintaining your Volvo or Toyota. By maintaining your car you are helping to reduce breakdowns and costly repair bills.

The blog this week is about engine maintenance. Just by ensuring that you change your oil and filter on an annual basis will help to ensure the longevity of your Volvo or Toyota. This is a relatively inexpensive maintenance routine that you can even do yourself at home. But please remember to dispose of the old oil in the correct manner – which is NOT down the drain! However there is much more that should be done in a service – and you may need a fully trained mechanic to do these for you.

Having your Volvo or Toyota serviced regularly is vital when it comes to ensuring that your car continues to run well. The benefits of regular servicing is to help extend the life of the multiple components of your engine and reduce wear and tear. A well maintained car will also run more efficiently (saving money daily) and be safer on our roads. It will cost you far more money to replace broken car parts that it does to maintain and take good care of the ones you already have.

To ensure that you do not void your car warranty you must adhere to the manufacturers service schedule. A well maintained Volvo or Toyota will also have a better resale value than one that has not been maintained.
