Simon Emery's Deals On Wheels
Why service your car properly?

After your home a car is the biggest investment you will make. Also your car is in daily uses with moving parts. So it makes sense that you should maintain it properly.

What is done in a service.

When a car is serviced correctly there are many things that we do at Deals on Wheels.

The obvious is the oil change, We change the oil and filter . This prevents wear on the engine. Also when we drain the oil we get a good idea of condition of the engine. If the oil is like mushroom soup, the chances are the head gasket has gone and you have water in the oil. If the oil is low and very black you may be burning oil. This means the piston rings are worn. All good mechanics drain the oil when the car is hot, the reason being is that it is thinner and you will get more out . If you don’t do it hot you will still have a litre of old oil inside.

Engine compartment.

When under the bonnet all levels will be checked and topped up. It is important to use correct fluids. Different cars use different fluids such as brake and auto gear box fluid. If you use the wrong one you’re in trouble. The air filter will be changed as it is very dusty in Cyprus and this dust will choke your engine, causing loss in power and bad emissions. Spark plugs will be changed when applicable. Some new spark plugs are platinum and should do 40000km. All lights will be checked for safety, we stock bulbs for every car.

Under the car.

We have two ramps at Deals on Wheels service centre. While having a service we do a full suspension and drive train inspection and on the 4x4 vehicles we grease all the ball joints and drive shafts.


When servicing properly all brakes should be removed, cleaned and adjusted. When a car leaves here the hand brake will have only 3 to 5 clicks. While the wheels are off we copper slip the studs and also the hub. Alloy wheels bond with the steel hub and make it difficult to remove , the copper slip forms a barrier against this. If a car has squeaky brakes it may need pads or the shoes roughing up. What I mean buy this is your disks and drums can develop a lip that catches the pad or shoe. We file the pad and use emery cloth on the drums to give a nice fit. If you have a shudder on you brakes we can reface or skim your disks to make them like new again.

Washes and wipers.

The hard water in Cyprus blocks the washer jets on all cars. The only way to unblock this properly is to remove them from to car and blow with an air line . A pin is also useful but we always blow out any way to remove debris. When refitting to washer jets we then adjust to get best spray. Wiper blades are always split in Cyprus so we can change these also.

Checks and lube.

When finishing off your car we grease all door catches and check straps to prevent wear and to give smooth operation. We are often adjusting rear doors on 4x4’s as they are heavy and drop. The battery will also be serviced by removing the corrosion and greasing the terminals. Wet batteries should be topped up with distilled water.
