We generally recommend you to change your air filter every 20,000-25,000 kms.
Changing your air filter regularly helps improve the fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and can prolong your engine life. If the air filter is clogged by dirt or sand it will reduce the oxygen supply for the internal combustion in the engine. Learn more here.
Standard copper spark plugs last around 20,000 – 30,000 kms.
Iridium or Platinum spark plugs can last for 80,000 – 10,000 kms
The spark plugs play an important role in your engine, they produce electrical sparks that ignites the mixture of fuel and air in your engine’s combustion chambers, causing the pistons to move up and down.
If your spark plug is worn out, it is recommended to get it replaced as soon as possible as it is instrumental in the movement of pistons which get the car wheels going. Bad plugs cause misfiring of the engine which makes the engine shake, reduce fuel efficiency, problems starting engine and poor acceleration.
If you are unsure, check out our quality car service packages, where we will inspect the spark plugs and notify you if they need to be replaced.
Ranges from 30,000 km – 90,000 km as it largely depends on driving habit.
For example: if you drive more aggressively especially in a busy city areas and brake with more force, more often – then it’s likely you will need to replace them sooner than someone who travels quiet long distance country roads. Or if you are driving on mountainous roads, going up and then down is also a factor. Because when you are braking downhill often it’s going to burn through those pads very quickly. So it really depends, but generally 3 years if you average 10,000kms/year then you would change them.
As a rule of thumb, if they are less than 25% then you should change it. If it’s more than perhaps you could change them next service. Badly worn pads can also damage your rotors making them uneven and they are normally much cheaper to replace than the rotors.
It is a hydraulic fluid used in the brake system – transfers the pressure applied from the brake pedal from when you step on it to the brake mechanisms of the car.
The brake fluid is hygroscopic thus absorb water/moisture from the atmosphere. If water gets in then it will decrease the performance and reduce the boiling point of the fluid (thus require change quicker) – when the brakes are applied alot of heat is generated therefore they need to have a high boiling point to be able to function properly.
Recommended change is every two years – need to drain the old fluid out and add new in. As this type of fluid ages and the corrosion inhibitor degrade over time and the chemical composition changes thus topping up won’t actually help.
Brake fluid change will ensure a normal and safe brake system operation, its replacement on a regular basis will also extend the life of brake components.
