Often the customer’s perception of small is vastly different to that of the Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic team.
This transit van came in late at night for the work to be done the next day. It was booked in for “a small oil leak”. Really?
The van was driven in and parked for the evening. In the morning, using the customer’s values, we had a lake of oil underneath the vehicle.
It turned out the customer was putting in a good two litres of oil every day and sometimes more. It had also been elsewhere a few times to have the leak fixed – why customers do not take the vehicle back is beyond my understanding.
The leak was coming from the timing chain case and all it needed was an inexpensive gasket. The problem – it is at least a six hour job.
Once completed, the customer reported that he was saving £20 a day on oil costs. By my reckoning the work paid for itself in 20 days!
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. If your car or van is using too much oil, come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
