Why do I need to service my Ford?
There’s a reason we’re the chosen independent garage in Lytham St Annes: we go the extra mile to keep you happy and on the move. With Marc’s Garage, you benefit from:
Safety: The smallest, unnoticeable faults can cause a breakdown – why risk it? We complete a full inspection to ensure all systems and parts are in working order, preventing bigger issues and reducing the chance of an accident.
Reliability: Whether you use your vehicle for work or leisure, it’s safe to say you need a reliable car. With our service, we prevent repeat repairs and help you pass your MOT first-time. Let us help you keep your on-road experience as smooth as possible.
Endurance: A Ford is a great investment, but regular repairs aren’t. Servicing enhances the condition of your Ford by keeping it running at peak performance, giving it a longer lifespan.
Savings: When money’s short, it’s tempting to skip a service. However, a regular Ford service catches smaller faults before they become hefty repair bills. And, vehicles that have a full-service history have a higher resale value – what’s not to love?
How do I know if one is due?
Depending on how much you use your car or van will depend on which service you need. We advise a minor service every 12 months or 10,000 miles to review the crucial safety components of your car.
For cars and vans which see heavy use, we recommend an additional major service every 36 months or 30,000 miles. This service is designed to both optimise the safety of your vehicle and assess all components for peak performance, to guarantee longevity.
If you’re unsure which service you need, call us on to arrange a review of your vehicle.
Are you able to service my Ford without it affecting the warranty?
Absolutely. In the past, drivers could only service their Ford at select garages to maintain the warranty.
The good news is recent changes in legislation enable you to choose the garage you think best.
So, why not pick the leading independent garage in Lytham St Annes.
What happens during a Ford service?
Lighting & Visibility – The front, rear, and internal lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, and wipers are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are cleaned and maintained for clarity and sturdiness.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks or faults, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.
Vehicle Interior – Seat belts are tested in line with safety standards. All internal controls are checked, such as the horn, hazard light button, and other vehicle controls for responsiveness and function. Using diagnostics, we complete full system analysis. This includes reviewing the air conditioning, making sure warning messages are addressed, and checking for intermittent and permanent faults flagged by the computer.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – Wheel alignment is analysed, and all joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected for sturdiness and function. . The front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested to ensure the suspension functions effectively and maintains the right level of friction.
Braking – Both the front and rear brake mechanisms are checked and measured in line with safety requirements, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – The trays under your car are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is then checked for leaks, rust, and corrosion.
Tyre Inspection – All wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for sturdiness, weak points, and corrosion. Tyres reads are inspected for significant wear, and tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We also check your spare wheel and/or inflation kit if appropriate for your vehicle.
Final Checks – We assess the brake fluid and conduct an antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Finally, we fill your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
