Timing belts are changed according to manufacturer’s specifications, relative to mileage or age. Timing belts are also checked for abnormal noises during servicing at CJT Motor Services. Failure to change the timing belt at the correct interval, or if abnormal noises are detected, may result in engine failure.
Clutches are wear and tear items and are replaced for 4 main reasons.
- Normal wear and tear where the clutch is worn out and slipping.
- Hard to select gears.
- Noisy release bearings i.e. noises when you are applying the clutch
- Juttering i.e. normally caused when oil leaks onto the lining of the clutch.
The job of the car suspension is to maximise the friction between the tyres and the road surface.
- to provide steering stability with good handling.
- to ensure comfort of the passengers.
On servicing of the vehicle we will report any repairs required to the shock absorbers or suspension on your car and replace parts as requested.
Steering & Tracking
Worn steering parts will cause abnormal tyre wear and will effect the drivability of the car. We will change any steering components required to ensure your safety and re-align the steering to stop abnormal tyre wear.
Tyre & Exhausts
On inspection when servicing your vehicle, we will report to you whether you require new tyres or exhaust. We will do a price check for you to see whether or not we can provide the service for you or recommend an alternative option.
All modern cars have several on board computers i.e. engine management, ABS + air bags. When a fault occurs in any of these systems, a warning light will either flash or will stay illuminated on the dash board. We have advanced diagnostic equipment which will assist us to rectify the faults on your car.
Valeting on Request
On advanced notice, we can organise to have your car valeted on the day we are servicing your car.
This is a service that we provide for all our customers free of charge. we recommend that if you see a car for sale that you like and want to buy, tell the seller to bring the car to CJT Motor Services where we will check the car out thoroughly for you – before the sale is agreed.
