Forgetting to service the vehicle as per manufacturer schedule can cause airborne debris such as leaves and dust to find their way into the engine, in particular the cylinders. This grime can then mix with the engine oil, which, when moves around the engine can slowly wear away engine components due to its abrasive nature. If left for a while clogged filters can cause serious damage to engine, reducing its performance and costing you more money than the cost of a normal service. At Many Autos we keep a range of different service parts in stock for every make and model, so you can get the service you need to keep the vehicle engine running at the highest possible standard.

Over time, the brake fluid in your car becomes less effective as it absorbs moisture from the surroundings. This results in increased stopping distances and reduced braking efficiency, which is why we recommend regularly checking your brake fluid with us and replacing it as necessary.

Fiat Transmission Service Your transmission oil plays a vital role as both a lubricant and coolant. As it’s subjected to more and more gear changes, it gradually becomes thinner and needs to be replaced. Your Service Schedule recommends

The engine coolant circulates through the car's cooling system, it serves to keep the engine at an optimal temperature for an efficient combustion cycle and prevents it from overheating. The coolant runs from the reservoir, through the radiator, the water pump and onto the thermostat to be circulated through the engine back to the reservoir where the process begins anew.

Without a steady supply of cool engine coolant flowing through the cooling system there is a risk that the car will overheat, in some cases the engine can then suffer expensive internal damage. Debris like scale or rust shed by the internals of the system can cause an inadequate flow of engine coolant through the system. Eventually, the system can clog up entirely. Should you experience problems with the engine coolant supply, then it is advisable to have the cooling system inspected and, if necessary, have the coolant replaced. Seeing that engine coolant is generally prone to deteriorate over time it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

Common Fiat Problems found during a full service

It is known that Fiat engines commonly leak form the valve covers or tensioner gasket seals. This can be a highly hazardous as there is a risk of leaking oil hitting the exhaust which will in turn cause the oil to burn. Engine oil also destroys wiring if it comes into contact which is why you may face electrical faults as a result of leaking oil in your Fiat. If your engine oil is leaking in your Fiat, a mechanic will be sure to find it during a full service as there are a number of tell-tale signs. It would be hard not to miss as the liquid would be likely to be dripping form the undercarriage of the car.

If the axle joint on an Fiat dries out, you are likely to hear a clunking or clicking sound when making sharp turns. This happens when the CV boot has been torn and grease has been split into the interior engine. The axle joint needs grease to operate properly and so when there isn’t any available, you’re going to face problems. During an Fiat full service, a mechanic will be likely to check on the health of the CV boot and axle joint if you have been hearing strange noises coming from your car.

Many Fiat models have a flexible joint in the exhaust between the down-pipe and the catalytic converters. This joint is prone to weathering and often begins to leak. While the deeper exhaust note can sound cool for a while, the results can be very expensive. There are a range of other Fiat specific problems which may be picked up during a full service, here are just a few more of the other common issues.
