Your vehicle is made out of over 30,000 mechanical parts, and a lot of them are moving mechanical parts. Your vehicle relies on them to perform its tasks as needed, so can you imagine how complicated and yet connected the systems that are built into your vehicle? And just like any mechanical moving part, they degrade over time as they start to consume themselves whether it is because of heat, dirt, friction, or any of the other elements that contribute to the consumption of your vehicle’s lifespan.
This is why regular maintenance is important, and you should always stick to the manufacturer’s recommended intervals. Each vehicle is equipped with a copy of the owner’s manual. In the owner’s manual you will find so much useful information about the maintenance of your vehicle.
One of the most important things to look for is the service page of the manual, where it mentions what parts are needed to be serviced or replaced, and it mentions the time or distance intervals between each service.
Now each vehicle is different from the other since they are using different mechanical parts, not all cars run the same engine or transmission, some cars might be sharing engines or transmissions but even then, they can be tuned differently to service the purpose of the vehicle.
A service can be either a minor service or a major service, the difference lies usually in the distance or time interval between the services as different parts wear-out at a different rate and need to be serviced at different intervals.
The most common type of service is the minor service which can be done every 3,000, 5,000, or 10,000 kilometers depending on the manufacturer’s recommendation and it usually includes an engine oil change and the replacement of filters such as oil, air intake, and cabin air filters. Again, every vehicle is different as we mentioned earlier, the intervals of services and what needs to be serviced or replaced lies in the owner’s manual.
At DAS Center we are able to identify which services need to take place on whatever intervals for all European and German vehicles thanks to our extensive encyclopedia. Your cars feel at how when they are at Deutsches Auto Service Center.
Another type the Major Service, which is usually referring to service intervals that require more integral parts of your vehicle’s systems and fluids that usually need replacement depending on what the manufacturer recommends, but it could include coolant replacement, differential and transmission fluids, brake or clutch fluids, and it can even include different parts to be replaced based on what is recommended by the factory.
That is why you need to always refer to the owner’s manual, to understand your vehicle’s maintenance and service intervals as on-time service can save you a lot of time, energy, and money in the long run since servicing on time can help prolong the life of your vehicle’s components.
