Keeping on top of regular servicing is imperative to ensure that you car can run happier for longer. Changing your fluids and filters make up the bulk of routine servicing and should never be overlooked. Changing engine oil, coolant and other fluids along with the necessary filters including your oil filter, air filter and fuel filter as well as any other filters relevant to your car including transmission filters or even coolant filters minimises potential harmful deposits in your engine's vital systems which can over time cause premature damage resulting in costly repairs. For a simple break-down on when each filter should be replaced, follow the basic guide below:
Oil Filter - Replace this with every oil change every 5,000kms
Air Filter - Should be replaced every 20,000kms
Fuel Filter - Should be replaced every 35,000kms
Cabin Filter - Should be replace annually or every 20,000kms. If you regularly drive on dirt roads, consider changing it sooner
The above should be used a rough guide only, different manufacturers will specify unique service intervals and filter and fluid change intervals for each make and model of vehicle which should be the go-to when servicing your car. When servicing your car, it's important to make sure you have everything on hand to get the job completed to get you back on the road in as little time as possible.
