We are often asked why filters need replacing during a service
The filters in your vehicle keep the air, fuel and oil flows in your engine clean, and the passenger air flow free from dust, pollen and pollution. These filters are in constant use and over time the particles they filter out and hold within them begin to make a filter efficient
Oil, engine air and fuel filters, are intended to stop impurities that could damage the engine while the passenger compartment filter serves to improve the quality of the air inside the vehicle.
Good quality filters are therefore a determining point for both vehicle service life and for the hygiene of the air inside the car and for the driver’s and passengers safety.
Dirty or blocked filters are less effective, and could lead to engine damage, or in the case of a cabin filter ultimately driver drowsiness. Replacing the recommended filters at your vehicle service is an important part of maintaining your car – who better than Renault Harts to look after your Renault car or van.
Renault genuine filters fitted by Renault trained technicians are guaranteed to fit first time, give long service life and be compatible with your vehicles filtering needs. Cheap filters, just like a dirty one, will be less efficient and durable, and could damage youir engine if air, fuel or oil flow were adversely affected. Your cabin filter plays an important part in driver safety too. We are so confident in the quality of our filters used in our car and van servicing we guarantee all our work for 12 months for parts and labour and can set fixed replacement intervals aimed at maintaining yout vehicles performance and saving you money on vehicle maintenance.
What about oil?
There are several types of oil available, (5W…)and the right oil for your vehicle depends on the engine – petrol and diesel engines require different oil types. In our worshops we will drain and correctly dispose of your old engine oil, replace the oil sump plug and washer with a genuine Renault sump plug and washer, and then electronically measure the quantity of new oil we put in to your engine. Too much or too little oil and your engine risks permanent damage. Trust us to replace your oil with the correct quality and quantity of oil – and take care of disposal of old engine oil.
Topping up oil yourself
Most Renault vehicles have an electronic oil level meaure on the dashboard. The difference between the bottom and top marker on the guage is 1 litre of oil, so you should never need to top up your oil level with any more than 1 litre without visiting Renault Harts for a free check.
Some oil is consumed naturally over time and might need topping up, which is why we recommend carrying a 1 litre oil top up in your boot. You can call in and pick up the right 1 litre oil top up pack from Renault Harts any time for just £xx. Overfilling your oil can have dramatic consequences, and can cause permanent engine damage – if in doubt call Renualt Harts for a free check of your vehicle.
If your Renault car or van regularly needs topping up, your have poured in more than 1 litre of oil, or may have used the wrong grade engine oil you should give Renualt Harts a call and book your car or van for a check by one of our trained technicians. We will check your vehicle over and give you peace of mind on the reliability and oil consumption of your vehicle.
