Proper Maintenance of European Cars

Maintenance is #1 to any machine.  Proper maintenance to modern cars is absolutely essential.

Essential Maintenance

Performing the essential maintenance with the right fluids designed for the vehicle is an absolute must.

Naturally we do have a plethora of pictures of vehicles where the wrong fluids were used or maintenance was performed late.   The damage is caused by it, could get really expensive to correct.

Here is a partially encrusted AMG engine with too late oil changes and wrong oil has been used to top up the oil level. It will have dire consequences in the long term.

Engine Oils & Manufacturer’s Recommendations

Let me explain please: If you use an oil in your car other than that specifically recommended by the manufacturer you will cause major damage to very expensive components in your car’s engine.

Today’s engines are designed and engineered with a specific way hence their manufacturer engine  specific approvals, which may or may not similar to the oils being sold at retail stores.

The old viscosity and API approvals are long gone.  Most manufacturers are very strict in their own special (concoction) a special chemical composition which is by itself is literally a science.

All this effort is being put into the goal to reduce friction, pumping losses and minimize engine wear on today’s super efficient but fragile engines.

On a high performance, AMG engine, one improper oil change can result in thousands of dollars worth of damage.

The other picture is a Mini Cooper S with a major and massive cooling system failure.  Wrong fluid used to top the cooling system up, which caused a complete cooling system failure.  The entire cooling system needed to be repaired.  It took considerable effort to minimize the damage.  The water pipe and  water pump essentially removed.  All the hoses to be cleaned  and flushed multiple times.

Modern high tech European cars are designed with very vehicle specific lubricants. Fluids with an exact chemical composition are essential to have your fine car last and perform as intended.

Automobile Maintenance

Automobile maintenance defined by Wikipedia as:  Auto maintenance describes the act of inspecting or testing the condition of car subsystems (e.g., engine) and servicing or replacing parts and fluids.

Regular maintenance is critical to ensure the safety, reliability, drive ability, comfort and longevity of a car. During preventive maintenance, a number of parts are replaced to avoid major damage or for safety reasons, e.g. timing belt replacement.

Thank you Wikipedia, all that above well said, but the question is the cost…

Does European import car’s maintenance cost a lot of money?

Sure it, does but cost a lot less than a new engine. Don’t you think?

We can prove maintenance pays dividends in the long term. With our no non sense regular maintenance you can maximize your car’s life.

Extending your investment beyond the average life expectancy of most fine European cars giving you years of reliable transportation.

A well maintained car, car engine, can go a half a million kilometers?, if looked after regularly.

Than there are the not so well maintained  cars and engines, to keep those running cost much more the regular maintenance would cost.

The pictures speak of themselves. It’s your choice, it is your money, your car and your investment.
