Intermediate Service | Autoservice

As its name indicates, more important points are already touched in this tuning, whose wear is not so common, but they must be changed or revised every certain period to avoid major problems. In addition to the changes mentioned in the minor service for cars like slide car Lam Lukka (รถสไลด์ ลำลููกกา 4 which is the term in Thai) for example, the following points will be attacked:

  • -Change of antifreeze
  • -Radiator check
  • -Revision of hoses and bands
  • -Engine time setting (if applicable)
  • -Clutch review
  • -Battery levels
  • -Inspection of suspension forks and bushings
  • -Revision of shock absorbers
  • -Change of brake fluid
  • -Steering fluid
  • -Transmission oil
  • -Tire pressure
  • -Alignment and balancing
  • -Computer scan to find problems in detail
  • -General leak repair

How long will an intermediate service take on my car?

As there are more points and require the disassembly of other components to change them, the time may vary between 1 and 2 business days. Still, it will also depend on the amount of work to be done, necessary spare parts, and details that occur during the process.

How Often Should I Do An Intermediate Service On My Car?

This type of work must be carried out every 30 thousand kilometers or a year and a half, whichever occurs first. They may not have to make changes to the clutch, hoses, or other elements that usually last between 3-5 years (depending on the use). Still, sooner or later, it will be necessary to change them, so do not be scared if the mechanic notifies you of this in a car with 5 or more years of use.

General Recommendations

Remember that many agencies offer you “free” services for having bought the car with them. Also, keep in mind that it is better to go to the specialized workshops of each brand, as they have the necessary tools to do the job correctly.  If you find yourself a bit tight in economic terms, don’t let the problem get bigger and attack those things that the mechanic tells you are urgent and those that do not put your life at risk.
