When I was young, many moons ago, I was taught that something causes something to break.
Basically, something will happen, which will cause something else to happen. A bit like the old nursery rhyme – for the want of a nail a horse was lost.
A perfect example is a blocked E.G.R valve. This has been caused by something else which, in this instance, was the turbo. But what caused the turbo to fail?
This is another case of car owners trying to save money. They decide the car is running well so why get it serviced?
This customer freely admitted the car had not had a service for two years or more.
The reason to have the service is as plain as the nose on your face – the turbo failed as the service was ignored.
The oil’s lubricity disappeared, the oil became contaminated, the oil feed pipe became blocked and this in turn caused the turbo to fail which blocked the E.G.R with soot oil and debris.
On this vehicle, the repair cost a significant amount of money and the customer has vowed to actually have the car serviced when it is due.
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. Come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
