A minor service is the same as an interim service; all checks are carried out as normal & only the engine oil and oil filter is replaced. It is an interim service that should be carried out between scheduled logbook services if required. This interim car service is most commonly performed for three reasons;
- A car has been driven past its next scheduled logbook service by kms and in order to get it back in line with its schedule, an interim service is required.
- A car has not reached it next scheduled logbook service by kms but has reached it by time.
- A car’s logbook schedule recommend returning every 20,000kms or more. This is not advised by the majority of mechanics and we recommend interim services in between these ‘too long’ service schedule intervals.
