“Already?!… It’s time for another service?”, you might be thinking…

And then you might think…….“Nah, it’ll be alright, I can wait another few kms. Won’t do any harm…”

Won’t it?

Can you really delay your service another few K’s?


We’ve all done it.  You get too busy, you forgot to call and book in.  It’s fine, right?


Believe it or not, there are some serious hidden side effects if you delay your service... Read this and you’ll never want to do it again.

Under that bonnet, your engine has dozens of moving parts.  The very last thing you want is serious internal engine wear and damage from parts grinding against each other.

One of the risks in delaying your service is the potential for oil sludge to build up in your engine…and that’s even worse than it sounds.

Oil sludge sticks to the inside walls of the engine, disrupting the flow of oil and potentially stopping it from getting where it needs to go, and lubricating all the moving parts of your engine. It’s like plaque building up in your arteries… not a good thing and something to be avoided at all costs.

Delaying your service puts you and others at risk. If your engine isn’t being lubricated, over time your engine will seize and you could have a mechanical failure on the road - especially if a critical part of the steering, braking or suspension is involved.

Regularly serving your vehicle will identify potential dangerous wear on safety components of your car.  

Your engine needs your love and respect, and with that, it will love and respect you right back. That’s where we come in – our passion is looking after Euro vehicles.

We are specialist European vehicle mechanics, and part of the biggest Australia-wide network EuroMechanica Service Centers. We only use quality Liqui-Moly oils and lubricants, because they’re the best for European machinery.
