Posted on November 26, 2022 at 9:21 am

If you are a car owner then you may get frustrated with having to fork out money constantly for repairs and services on your vehicle, but a service is actually a very important job that should be completed on time according to the service schedule. If you go a lot of mileage, you may even decide to do a service before it is due to try and keep the engine in tip top condition.

If you are struggling to be able to afford a major service, then you should have an oil and filter change as a bare minimum. The oil is what goes through different parts of the engine, lubricating it and ensuring that it runs smooth. If there it too little oil or the oil has degraded and is of a poor quality, then it is vital that you get it topped up or changed as soon as possible. Often an oil and filter change will costa round £60- £100 depending on the vehicle and the garage that is carrying it out. 

If you have access to a ramp or somewhere that you can jack the car up, then you may be able to do an oil and filter change yourself.
