Any driver out there on the road will know the importance of the MOT test and that it’s an annual test to ensure that the vehicle is road safe. A check on the vehicle by a fully trained MOT tester at a recognised MOT station is the only way you can be assured that your vehicle is fit to be on the road and the MOT certificate allows you to get tax and insurance.
No MOT means that you are probably driving without insurance and that could be costly, illegal and can lead to a hefty fine and your car could be seized.
A correctly serviced and tuned engine can pre-warn of potentially major problems with the engine and transmission. A full service will include fluid level checks and or changes depending on the system. Hydraulic fluid is hydroscopic (attracts and absorbs water) and should be changed at regular intervals. Water in hydraulic fluid has the potential to corrode the system from the inside with predictable results.
Coolant is another critical fluid to a car’s performance and engine longevity. Coolant degrades over time and loses its ability to inhibit corrosion inside the engine and also its cooling efficiency.
A full service will pick up any potential cooling system problem including leaks from the radiator, cap, water pump, cylinder head or gasket and hoses. A full service will also (among other things) tell you the condition of the brake pads, battery condition, steering alignment, tyre tread depth, suspension condition, oil leaks of any sort, exhaust leaks or corrosion, even how well the door locks are working.
And the best thing apart from having a fully functional, safe car is that with a complete service history, the car will be worth more when you sell it.
