THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR VEHICLE

VEHICLE SERVICE INTERVALS ARE BECOMING LONGER AND WITH THE DEMANDS ON MODERN ENGINES CAUSED BY EMISSION REGULATIONS AND INCREASED STRAIN FROM BIGGER POWER DELIVERY AND INCREASED M.P.G MEANS SERVICING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER. SAVING MONEY SHORT TERM ON NOT SERVICING YOUR VEHICLE CAN HAVE A DRAMATIC EFFECT ON HOW LONG IT WILL REMAIN IN TIP TOP CONDITION.  THE OIL AND OIL FILTER IS THE LIFE BLOOD OF YOUR ENGINE AND IT WILL DETERIORATE OVER TIME AND DISTANCE MEANING IT NO LONGER PROTECTS YOUR ENGINE. IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT ON MODERN ENGINES TO USE NOT ONLY THE CORRECT OIL GRADE BUT ALSO THE PROPER SPECIFICATION OIL AS INCORRECT OIL CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE THAN OLD OIL. UNFORTUNATELY HIGH GRADE OILS CAN BE EXPENSIVE BUT SO IS A NEW ENGINE- LONG GONE ARE THE DAYS OF A BARREL OF CHEAP OIL SAT IN THE CORNER OF THE WORKSHOP TO GO INTO EVERY CAR.

BARDNEY GARAGE ALWAYS CHECKS OIL SPECIFICATION BY VEHICLE AND REGISTRATION TO ENSURE YOU GET THE CORRECT OIL.

WHAT DOES A

DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (D.P.F)

DO

UNDER NORMAL DRIVING  CONDITIONS YOUR D.P.F LOCATED IN THE EXHAUST SYSTEM  WILL ACCUMULATE THE SOOT FROM THE COMBUSTION PROCESS OF THE ENGINE, AS THE D.P.F  BECOMES FULL THE VEHICLE WILL CARRY OUT A PROCESS KNOWN  AS "REGENERATION" TO CLEAN IT OUT WHILST YOU DRIVE ALONG- SIMPLE ENOUGH SO FAR.

UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES LIKE LOTS OF STOP START AND SHORT JOURNEYS OR IF THE SYSTEM DEVELOPS A FAULT IT CANNOT CARRY OUT THE REGENERATION PROCESS PROPERLY AND THE D.P.F WILL BECOME BLOCKED, A CHEAP ALTERNATIVE IN THE PAST HAS BEEN TO REMOVE THE D.P.F FROM THE VEHICLE AND HAVE THE ENGINE ECU "RE-MAPPED" TO TELL THE ENGINE IT NO LONGER EXISTS, WHILST IT IS NOT ILLEGAL FOR SOMEONE TO DO THIS TO YOUR VEHICLE

IT IS HOWEVER ILLEGAL TO DRIVE A VEHICLE ON PUBLIC ROADS WITH THE D.P.F REMOVED OR DELETED.

MY D.P.F IS BLOCKED, WHAT CAN I DO?

USUALLY THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE IS A WARNING LIGHT COMING ON IN THE DASH. IF THE PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY SHORT JOURNEYS AND FREQUENT STOP STARTS, A GOOD LONG RUN IN THE VEHICLE ALLOWING IT TO REACH FULL OPERATING TEMPERATURE AND DRIVING IN A LOWER GEAR TO SLIGHTLY RAISE THE ENGINE REV'S, IDEALLY TO AROUND 2500RPM - 3000RPM FOR A PERIOD OF AROUND 15- 20 MINUTES OR UNTIL THE WARNING LIGHT GOES BACK OUT IS OFTEN SUFFICIENT - PLEASE NOTE THAT SAFETY IS ALWAYS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY AND ALWAYS OBEY THE TRAFFIC LAWS, VEHICLE SPEED IS NOT IMPORTANT . THE PROCESS CAN ALSO CAUSE THE ENGINE TO RUN A LITTLE HOTTER SO KEEP AN EYE ON THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE.

IF THE REGENERATION FAILS OR THE WARNING LIGHT DOES NOT GOES OUT IT IS TIME TO GET YOUR CAR LOOKED AT BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN, TERRACLEAN AGENTS ARE PARTICUALLY SUITED TO THE JOB AS THEY ARE TRAINED TO UNDERSTAND THE WHOLE D.P.F SYTEM, HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT MAY CAUSE IT TO FAIL. SIMPLY CLEANING OR REPLACING THE D.P.F WILL NOT HELP IF THERE IS A PROBLEM ELSEWHERE ON THE ENGINE OR VEHICLE AS IT WILL SIMPLY BLOCK UP AGAIN. TERRACLEAN OFFER A TARGETED CLEANING PROCESS THAT WILL CLEAN OUT THE CARBON DEPOSITS FROM YOUR D.P.F WITHOUT REMOVING IT FROM THE VEHICLE, IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT THE D.P.F CAN ALSO BECOME BLOCKED BY ASH AND CHEMICALS FROM THE VEHICLES OWN REGENERATION SYSTEM AND THOSE REQUIRE THE D.P.F TO BE REMOVED BY THE TERRACLEAN AGENT FOR A DIFFERENT CLEANING PROCCESS.

AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE

AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE AVAILABLE
REGAS WHILST YOU WAIT

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR VEHICLES AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM WILL NATUARLLY LOOSE IT'S AIRCON GAS OVER TIME?

YOUR AIR CON SYSTEM WILL TYPICALLY LOOSE AROUND 10% OF IT'S GAS EVERY YEAR. THIS WILL CAUSE IT TO BECOME LESS EFFICIENT SO IT WON'T COOL YOUR CAR AS WELL AND WILL CAUSE IT TO USE MORE FUEL AS IT WILL HAVE TO WORK HARDER TO COOL YOUR CAR. A GOOD TIP FOR KEEPING YOUR AIR CONDITIONING IN GOOD ORDER IS TO USE IT PERIODICALLY DURING WINTER - THIS HELPS STOP THE RUBBER SEALS IN THE SYSTEM DRYING OUT AND ALLOWING THE AIRCON GAS TO LEAK OUT.
