OPEL CAR SERVICE
Done at every 12 months or 15 000km, Opel service checks are crucial in order to keep your car running at its best. Whether you drive a Corsa, Astra, Kadett or Zafira; a new model or an older one – it is vital to keep your Opel in good working order with regular services. Small problems that are ignored could end up becoming expensive problems later down the line, and not sticking to a schedule plan could have disastrous effects on your Opel’s engine and car service parts. Everyday wear and tear leads to strain on the engine, battery and other parts, especially in South Africa’s varied and sometimes harsh climate. Regular oil changes and other small, routine checks will ensure that your Opel stays in smooth running order, for a better ride.
autoWORKS is able to offer a range of thorough services and checks to ensure that your Opel is in the best possible condition. Basic services include the following:
Service and Inspection
Thorough inspection to ensure that all filters are in good condition, replacement of any filters that may need to be replaced, oil change, coolant fluid checks and other basic checks. You will be advised if your Opel requires further car repairs.
All engine lights and warning lights are checked to ensure that everything is in a good working order, and if not, the exact problem will be diagnosed.
Gearbox and Clutch
If your clutch is sticking, or you have to push down further than normal, then the clutch might be worn. Rather have it checked and repaired before you get stuck somewhere.
Your Opel service will check that your brake pads, brake fluid and other brake components are in proper working order – worn brake pads can have fatal repercussions, especially on South Africa’s busy roads.
Check and replace worn bushes to ensure smoother suspension. We use original parts, ensuring the smoothest suspension for your Opel; this will enable you to navigate even the bumpiest of roads.
Does your Opel lean to one side or bounce excessively? If so, then it is time to have your shocks checked. One of the simplest ways to check shocks is a push test – where the car is pushed down to test if it bounces. This can be done at home, or the qualified experts at autoWORKS can assist you in testing your shocks.
If your Opel is losing oil or water, or you have any type of engine trouble, then our car service centre will be able to diagnose and replace fluids as well as conduct a full engine check.
