Frequently Asked Questions

What are the services that WTPowers auto service offers?

Tune-ups, oil changes, wheel and brake service, chassis service, and engine rebuilds are just some of the basic services we offer for vehicles.

How often should my car be serviced?

Automakers and service centers agree that a car should be checked for maintenance every year or 12,000 miles. Please don’t ignore any warning lights, even if your car hasn’t been serviced in 12,000 miles. This means that your car needs to be looked at.

If you were told that your car might need an “interim service” after your last scheduled maintenance appointment, that means you should schedule another service appointment 6 months or 6,000 miles after the last one. Your car is showing signs of wear, so your mechanic wants to make sure everything is working. It’s a safety measure, in other words.

There are a few things you can do yourself to keep your car running well between services, like checking the oil and the pressure of the tires.

What happens if a car service is missed?

If you miss a car service, you should schedule another one as soon as you can.

The longer you wait to get a service, the more likely it is that something will go wrong. It also shortens the life of your car because it might be low on fluids and parts that keep the engine and car running right.

If you don’t get your car serviced, it might be less desirable to other people when you want to sell it. A car that has been serviced often shows that it has been taken care of and should be in good shape.

What to bring to a car service?

Make sure you and your car are ready for a service by bringing:

The car’s service book. These are getting harder to find, but don’t worry if you don’t have one. The garage will update this information online. Also, make sure you keep the bills for any work you have done on your car.
You can usually find alloy wheel keys or locking nuts with the spare wheel. If you haven’t taken them out of the car, they should still be there, and a mechanic will be able to find them.
Empty the car of anything valuable. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so make sure there’s nothing valuable in the car.
Make sure your car is clean. You should also pick up and wash your car so the mechanic can see what they’re looking for. This means that you have to empty your trunk so they can get to the spare tire.

How long can you go without servicing your car?

Every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first, an automobile should be maintained. To reduce the danger of a breakdown, you should schedule a service as soon as you can if you miss one.
