What is the difference between an Routine Service and a Full Service?

A Full Service is ideal for an annual maintenance programme for your car and recommended every 12,000 miles or 12 months – whichever is sooner. Routine or Interim servicing is ideal for vehicles used for short, mainly urban journeys i.e. for the car that mainly just picks the kids up from school or nips to the shops on a regular basis. The routine-Interim service is also for those who wish to service vehicles doing very high mileage more regularly. A routine-Interim service every 6,000 miles or 6 months helps keep your car safe and roadworthy between full services.

Why are there different types of engine oil?

Because not all engines are the same! A growing number of manufacturers specify that an enhanced “specialist oil” will optimise the engine’s performance. Ilkeston Garage will recommend an oil equivalent to the manufacturer’s specification. Furthermore, in some cases, you can choose to upgrade your oil from semi-synthetic to fully synthetic.
