Typical Servicing

Auto servicing is an important part of car ownership, because, like everything, vehicles wear out over time and so it’s essential to stay ahead of breakdowns with regular servicing, also known as preventative maintenance.

To avoid this, it’s always recommended to service your vehicle regularly, whether you’re driving a fifty-year-old Volkswagen Beetle or a brand-new Ford Ranger.

Although this article will focus on cars younger than ten years old, the same principles will apply to any car, 4×4, ute, truck or van.

Most new vehicles also come with a manufacturer warranty requiring a service every 10,000 to 20,000 kilometres (or somewhere in that range) or every six or twelve months.

Regular Servicing (Check-up, Top Up Or Replace)

A full service in Perth could be labelled as a regular service is a standard procedure to top up fluids, replace filters and spark plugs, and generally check the condition of the car.

You aren’t legally obligated to replace any parts the service might uncover but it is, nevertheless, recommended for safety reasons.

Searching vehicle servicing near me will bring up several options from local workshops to mobile mechanics in your area.

Here are a few things you can expect from a regular service…

Fluid top up, check-up or replacement:

  • Engine and gearbox oil
  • Coolant
  • Brake fluid
  • Washer fluid
  • Power steering

Filter check-up or replacement:

  • Oil filter
  • Fuel filter (if necessary)
  • Air filter
  • Cabin filter (also known as a pollen filter)
  • DPF clean (if necessary)
  • Spark plugs or glow plugs

General visual check-up of the whole car, including (but not limited to):

  • Tyre pressures, including the spare
  • Battery condition
  • Wiper blades
  • Lights
  • Suspension condition
  • Exhaust issues
  • Belts
  • Hoses
  • And more

Spontaneous Check up, Repairs or Replacement:

When you need some spontaneous work to be done, hopefully it hasn’t caused a breakdown, but nevertheless, there’s an almost endless list of possible causes.

It might include:

  • Wheel alignment, also known as tracking – you’ll need this if your tyres are no longer aligned
  • New tyre(s) if you get an irreparable puncture
  • Brake pads (or discs and pads) once the old ones have worn out
  • Suspension replacement – this could include shock absorbers (dampers), springs, top mounts, drop links, bushes, or the whole strut
  • Misfire diagnosis and repair (the list of causes of which are almost endless, but often a new set of spark plugs fixes the issue)
    Exhaust repair or replacement
  • Replacing or repairing any pump, hose, belt, component or part that stops working
  • ECU remapping, if the ECU has developed a problem or you simply want to improve the performance, fuel economy and general feel of your car as you’re driving.

Car Servicing Guide (Year by Year)

Vehicle Servicing Perth

A car should last a long time, but poor quality manufacturing or parts is the first way a car’s life is shortened. The other way is how it’s driven and maintained.

In this section of the article, we’ll explain how long you should expect various parts and components to last and, consequently, when you should expect to have to change them.

Every car will have its own service manual. For detailed and correct information for regular servicing for your specific car, you should always consult that.

The list below covers both regular and spontaneous servicing or part replacement or repairs.

Of course, people drive different distances per year. To account for this, we’ll be using the average distance a person living in WA covered in 2020, according to the Survey of Motor Vehicle Use, Australia.

This indicates that the average passenger vehicle in Western Australia covers 11,300 km per year.

For a car service Perth, the following guide will give you a rough outline of what parts may break or wear out, year by year, so that you can avoid unwanted breakdowns with regular servicing and preventative maintenance.

New Car (Year 1):

The following will need changing on a year-by-year basis.

Oil change – an oil change is something you need to get done every year. Over time, the oil quality reduces as it cycles through the engine which can affect the overall running of the car, it’s various parts and it’s consumption of fluids. Consequently, it will need to be drained and replaced annually.

Filter changes – you’re not likely to need every filter to be changed, but the air, pollen and oil filters should be swapped out as a minimum. A fuel filter is generally changed every 2 years.

Wiper blades – it sounds like a menial point, but wiper blades can break down very quickly. Most people need to replace them every year and sometimes even more often than that. Poor quality blades can obscure your vision while driving in the rain.

Suspension bushes – every year, you’re likely to find at least one suspension bush needs changing.

Year 2:

In year 2 of a car’s life, here’s what you’ll need to consider…

Wheel alignment – manufacturers vary significantly from each other when they define how often you should check your tracking. To be safe, however, we’d recommend getting it checked as often as possible. Realistically, it’s worth checking it every time you get a new tyre, too. Aside from that, every two years is a reasonable length of time to get a wheel alignment.

Wheel balancing – there’s no set rule to when you should get your wheels balanced. Most people aim for having them done approximately every 20,000 km or every time the tyres are rotated or swapped.

Spark plugs – spark plugs should last about two years. They’re classified as a service item and some manufacturers recommend changing them as frequently as every year. New spark plugs will reinvigorate your car and instantly renew engine performance and you’ll often feel the difference when driving.

Year 3:

Tyres – on some vehicles, tyres may be approaching the end of their lives by the end of the third year. However, if your car and the roads are kind and you look after them, you might expect to get another two years out of them.

Battery – car batteries usually last about three years before they often begin to deteriorate. Getting a new battery is a fairly simple job and shouldn’t take a mechanic too long.

Year 4:

Brakes – for a brake service Perth, brake pads will typically wear out after about 50,000km to 60,000km although they might last longer, but that’s about four of five years. Disc brakes tend to last much longer.

During a service, the mechanic will remove the brake assembly and check that the pads and discs are in good condition and recommend a replacement if necessary. Some people only replace the pads, although it’s often recommended to replace both pads and discs.

Spark plugs, wheel alignment and balancing – just as in Year 2, these jobs are likely to need doing every two years. See the repeated tasks through this section of the article.

Year 5:

Brake fluid flush – brake fluid typically lasts about four or five years, but can last much longer. It’s worth checking it at this stage and, if there’s a problem (if air and water have got in) you can expect to need to flush and replace it. Replacing the brake fluid will leave your car feeling much more responsive under braking.

Tyres – at this point, you’d expect to need a new set of tyres. Over the previous years, you’ll have rotated them and keep the wheel alignment and balances in check, giving them the longest lifespan possible. Sadly, often, punctures and sidewall damage mean you have to change one or two tyres before you reach this point.

Fuel filter –Recommendations from manufacturers on changing a fuel filter can vary between 30,000 km to 100,000 km or even more. After about five years, your fuel filter may be in a condition where it’s worth replacing it – hopefully, before it’s clogged up. It may need changing sooner or much later, depending on the condition of the fuel tank and the fuel you put in.

Year 6:

Power steering fluid flush – many people disagree on exactly when you should replace the power steering fluid. However, replacing the fluid may improve the way your car handles and we would recommend at least getting it checked at this stage.

Suspension – around this stage of the car’s life, suspension components could be faltering – most people estimate around 60,000km. That being said, they often last much longer. Humidity levels, salt and road conditions are the biggest factors that will affect their condition.

Battery, spark plugs and wheel alignment and balancing – these components should be checked and possibly replaced and/or services conducted.

Year 7:

Alternator – the alternator is responsible for generating an electrical charge while the car is running. It often starts to degrade after about seven years, although many last longer. You may notice problems with the battery and other electrical issues while the car is running.

Timing belt – the timing belt controls the camshaft’s positional speed in relation to the crankshaft. If it stops working properly or slips, the valves will open at the wrong times, creating a major problem. They often fail between seven and ten years. Many cars utilise timing chains instead – these should, typically, last longer.

Year 8:

Radiator – the radiator’s job is to dissipate heat away from the engine. They often last up to eight or ten years. As long as you keep your coolant levels topped up, you can expect your radiator to last at least this long and potentially longer. If you notice the engine temperature gauge rising on your dashboard, it could be a sign of radiator failure.

Lambda (oxygen) sensor(s) – as part of the emissions control methods added to vehicles, the oxygen sensors help control things like the air:fuel ratio and EGR system. Over time, they get clogged up with carbon from the engine and need replacing.

Spark plugs, wheel alignment and balancing, brakes – your second set of brakes are likely to need replacing during the eighth year.

Year 9:

Fan belt – the fan belt, or serpentine or drive belt, (the belt you can see when you open your bonnet) is powered by the crankshaft and runs things like the alternator, power steering pump and air conditioning compressor. Over time, the rubber can become brittle and this can stop it working effectively.

Battery – you may need to check your battery for possible replacement.

Year 10:

Oil pump – the oil pump should last most of the car’s useful life, however things can start to go wrong as it gets older. The oil pump’s job is to create the pressure needed to force the oil through the channels and pipes in the engine. They usually last for about 100,000 to 110,000km.

Clutch – in many cars, the clutch will last considerably longer than this. In many cars, you could find it has another ten years left in it. Despite this, clutches do begin to fail at about this age – listen for juddering. You may also notice reduced power to the wheels, whining or strange sensations through your left foot when operating the clutch.

Tyres – you may need another set of tyres by this point although, all being well, they should last another few years yet.

DPF cleaning – with newer cars, the DPF shouldn’t need a thorough clean for most of the car’s life. However, at about ten years in, you can expect to need a full clean.

Starter motor – many cars have starter motors that will last much longer than ten years, but they could begin to fail around this time.

Spark plugs, wheel alignment and balancing, brake fluid flush and fuel filter check.

Don’t forget that, in most circumstances, you should also repeat the items from Year 1 every year to keep the car in good running order.

Diesel Servicing Perth

A Perth car service for a diesel car is just as important as for a petrol car and the service itself is similar to any other.

The car still functions in much the same way – fuel goes in and gets combusted, driving the crankshaft and sending power to the wheels.

There are, however, a few differences.

Diesel engines don’t have spark plugs – the ignition of the engine is caused by compression alone. Therefore, you won’t need any spark plug work done.

They do have a set of components vaguely similar to spark plugs. These are known as glow plugs. When you switch the engine on, they get very hot very quickly, warming the cylinder to a point where it can ignite the diesel. On average, these last about 160,000km.

For a diesel injector service in Perth, you’ll be needing this done about every 150,000km, usually around the same time as the glow plugs. Diesel injectors pump the fuel straight into the cylinder to cause the engine’s power stroke.

The other main difference between the types of car is the DPF. The Diesel Particulate Filter removes harmful particulates from the exhaust gases and prevents environmental damage and toxicity to humans. Over time, they clog up and need a full clean.

Other than that, a diesel service is almost exactly the same as a petrol service.

As mobile mechanics, we can offer a diesel car service in Perth. Schedule a visit to your home or workplace.

Servicing Of All Vehicle Types

Although the process of servicing is relatively similar no matter the type of vehicle, there are some subtle differences.

In this section, we examine the differences between servicing for hatchbacks, sedans, 4x4s and SUVs, trucks and utes.

For the best car service in Perth for any vehicle type, book an appointment here on our website for one of our expert mobile mechanics to come out to your home or office.

Hatchback Servicing

Since hatchbacks are smaller than other body types, they are often simpler to run and service. In general, smaller engines, despite having less power, mean there’s less to go wrong.

Almost all hatches are front-wheel-drive (FWD), meaning fewer drivetrain components to malfunction.

However, particularly on older hatchbacks, there are some well-known downsides. For example, early automatic gearboxes on small-engine cars have a tendency to fail.

With an auto transmission service in Perth, we can diagnose problems on these parts and recommend a suitable course of action.

Searching for best car servicing near me will bring up our expert mobile servicing for hatchbacks, where our mobile mechanics come to you for servicing which includes oil and filter changes, fluid top ups, changing spark plugs and more.

So whether you’re looking for a warranty service at either 10,000km, 20,000km, or 30,000km… as well as for older models, we can get your hatchback running smoothly again.

Sedan Servicing

With sedan car servicing near me, we bring the workshop to you. Since sedans are bigger and longer than hatches, there are a few extra things to watch out for.

Broadly, though, services follow the same structure as for hatchbacks.

Brakes on sedans can be more heavy-duty than on smaller hatches. That’s because they have more weight to slow down.

For mobile brake repairs in Perth, when something goes wrong it can potentially be dangerous. So it’s important to have qualified, licensed auto technicians to assist you and get your car back on the road as soon as possible, whether they’re working on discs, pads, lines, hoses, pedals, master cylinder or callipers.

Many new sedans have AWD (all-wheel-drive). Despite popular belief, this is different from the 4WD (or 4×4) drivetrain.

AWD is a sort of temporary 4WD system. Most of the time, it runs on just one axle (usually the front).

However, when the front wheels lose traction, the power momentarily goes to the other axle too, to help maintain grip. A mechanic will check this system for you and make sure it’s working.

For a sedan auto service in Perth, we can service your vehicle on your driveway at home or at your workplace.

4WD Servicing

For SUV servicing and 4WD servicing Perth, as they have a few extra parts you don’t find on regular cars, such as the transfer case, and are usually built to be a little more rough and ready than the standard road car, servicing often costs a bit more.

The Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Gladiator and Land Rover Defender are popular on-road and off-road 4×4’s in Perth and across the country.

For expert 4×4 servicing Perth, make sure your auto technician has experience with your brand and model of 4WD to ensure your vehicle gets a thorough service.

Most 4×4 vehicles are diesel-powered. This is because of the low-end torque that diesel provides, giving them a greater ability to traverse tricky landscapes such as rocky outposts, steep slopes or mud.

When you book a full service for one of these vehicles, the mechanic should also check all the diesel-related components, such as the glow plugs, DPF and AdBlue (if applicable).

For the best 4WD service in Perth, consider our mobile mechanics who can service your 4×4 on your driveway at home or at work.

Ute Servicing

The Aussie ute is as popular as ever with the Holden Commodore ute and Ford Falcon ute being the two most popular.

For ute servicing Perth, whether you need a radiator check or a major service, consistent servicing will help keep your running costs down, especially when it comes to fuel consumption, as pretty much all utes are 6 or 8 cylinder engines.

Truck Servicing

There are many top quality trucks in Australia these days with popular makes and models including the Mazda BT-50, Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Volkswagen Amarok, Ford Ranger, Ssangyong Actyon Sports 4×4, and many more.

For truck servicing Perth, regular checks can prevent major repairs further down the track, especially as many trucks are 4WD and are often taken off-road in the bush or on the beach.

The last place you want a breakdown is on a camping trip up the beach or in the forest somewhere as you’ll also incur towing costs.

Preventative maintenance is crucial if you’re vehicle takes a bit of a beating, even as a work truck for tradies.

We also service larger trucks up to 6 tonne.

What should a basic car service include?

A basic car service should include, as a minimum, an oil and filter change and general visual inspection of the vehicle.

With mechanics in Perth, a basic service is fairly simple and shouldn’t cost too much. Some Perth mechanics will offer services below even an oil and filter change, such as brake or radiator checks.

If you feel something might be wrong with your vehicle – or you know something’s wrong – give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.

When you book your car in for a full service, you should expect a detailed inspection of your vehicle along with all filters changed and fluids topped up.

Of course, depending on your vehicle, the specific requirements might be different from the next. An electric car won’t need new spark plugs, for example, neither will a petrol car require glow plugs.

Servicing is quoted depending on the size of the car (hatchback, sedan, 4WD, etc), mostly relating to the number of cylinders the engine has (4, 6 or 8).

For car servicing in Perth, please get in touch with us for a no-obligation quote. Our servicing starts at $269.50.

Is 60,000km a major service?

Yes, 60,000km is a major service because your car is between 3 and 7 years old, which is often a crucial period where the way the car has been driven and looked after can really make a difference in how well the car will run in the coming years.

For a mobile car mechanic in Perth, we can perform a 60,000km service at a place suiting you.

Generally you shouldn’t need any expensive repairs at this point, but it’s certainly a crucial time to continue preventative maintenance including checking your brakes, tyres and suspension for any potential defects, aside from the regular service items.

For a major service in Perth, we offer all the features mentioned near the start of this article, including (but not limited to):

  • Oil change
  • Fluid top-ups

  • General inspection

For a mobile mechanic in Perth WA, our technicians can perform vehicle servicing at your home or workplace.

Are mobile mechanics cheaper than garages?

A mobile car mechanic in Perth is often cheaper than a garage as mobile mechanics have far fewer overheads to cover than a garage owner.

As well as being cheaper, mobile mechanics are often more flexible and make life easier for you by coming to your home or workplace.

For car service costs in Perth, request an accurate quote up front so that you know what you’ll be paying, and if the mechanic identifies additional issues that require immediate repair or replacement, he’ll discuss this with you before proceeding with the work.
