As engine oil’s role is to keep all the moving parts inside of your engine moving and working correctly, over time it can collect dirt and start to become less efficient at its job, thus resulting in inefficient fuel consumption and wearing of components.
It is recommended that you change your engine oil every 5,000 miles – but if you drive a lot, or in challenging conditions, it’s worth changing it at 3,000 miles.
Designed to protect your engine from dangerous contaminants from entering/re-entering your engine, an oil filter is a vital component. Our range includes replacements for all types of vehicles.
Unfiltered oil can, over time, develop hard and harmful particles, and the last thing you want is for them to pass through an old or broken oil filter, inflicting lasting damage on your engine. It is recommended that you change your oil filter every 5,000 miles or so, but be aware that only certain filters work with certain cars - the wrong ones can cause leaks and sometimes irreversible damage.
Air filters prevent dirt and other materials from getting into vehicles’ engines, and should be changed or services annually to ensure trouble-free engine function.
Forgetting to change or service the air filters on your car can cause airborne debris such as leaves and dust find their way into the engine, in particular the cylinders. This grime can then mix with the oil, which, when moved around the engine, can slowly wear away engine components due to its abrasive nature. If left for a while, a clogged and useless air filter can cause serious damage to your engine, reducing its performance and costing you more money than the cost of a filter.
The purpose of fuel filters is to stop dirt and debris from getting into your engine and contaminating your fuel supply.
Your car’s performance depends on a finely balanced mix of air and clean fuel. By keeping dirt at bay, your car’s fuel filters play a vital role in your car’s health and efficiency. Dirty, blocked, or worn fuel filters will compromise your car's performance. Failure to filter out dirt and debris could clog your fuel injectors and carburettor. This in turn could lead to damage and the need for costly repairs or replacement parts.
Please Note: Some of the newer petrol vehicles have a lifetime filter and do not need to be changed. However, diesel vehicles do require filter changes on a regular basis. You will be consulted by the Everest Motors Team on this if your vehicle requires a change.
There 2 types of spark plugs, Standard and Platinum.
Spark plugs are one of the more important elements of the engine service as it is a component that is directly involved with the combustion of the fuel that drives your vehicle. Un-serviced spark plugs can result in failure to start, misfiring, over fuel consumption, Winter/cold start problems and possibly emissions failure on your MOT. It’s fairly common for your spark plugs to fail over time, especially if they’ve not been replaced recently. In fact, it’s good practice to replace them with every service to ensure your vehicle stays in tip top (and most importantly of all) functioning shape.
Standard spark plugs should be replaced on average every 10,000 miles.
Platinum Spark plugs should be changed on average every 50,000 - 60,000 miles.
Once the temperature starts to fall, the antifreeze in the coolant stops the water from freezing and causing irreparable damage to the engine itself. it also has a higher rate of heat transfer to allow the heat generated by the engines combustion to be carried away to the radiators so that it can be cooled down before recirculating.
Brake fluid is used throughout the vehicles braking circulatory system and is important to ensure that the level is correct which ensures the components that use the fluid have sufficient levels to operate correctly
