An engine-related breakdown is as frustrating as a battery-related one. And, a large percentage of these occur due to absence of the coolant till the prescribed limit. That’s why when you bring your car down to our facility, we check if the coolant level is appropriate, and if not, we will refill it.
Engine oil is another essential fluid in your vehicle. Too much or too little of it can cause a breakdown. We check the oil level when you bring your car to us for winter check Redditch and also recommend the best engine oil to be used, based on your vehicle for optimal efficiency.
It is paramount to check if windscreen wipers are functioning properly or not; it can fog up more readily during winter. We will also check the screen wash level in your vehicle and refill it if necessary.
We also assess whether your car’s front and rear lights are working appropriately. It is essential, especially on foggy days, that you can see and be seen. And since nights are longer, it is all the more important.
