General Vehicle Service


Recommended for vehicles over 10 years old and 150,000kms


A general car service, also known as routine maintenance or a regular check-up, is a crucial aspect of keeping your vehicle running smoothly and safely. At TJP Auto & 4x4, we take pride in offering comprehensive general car service packages that cover the following key components:

Road Test

service road test is a critical step in the vehicle maintenance and repair process. During this test, a skilled technician takes the vehicle for a test drive to evaluate its performance, handling, and overall condition. This real-world assessment helps identify issues that may not be apparent during stationary inspections. The technician pays attention to factors such as engine responsiveness, braking efficiency, suspension behaviour, steering responsiveness, and any unusual noises or vibrations. The results of the road test inform the technician's diagnosis and recommendations for necessary repairs or adjustments, ensuring that the vehicle is safe and operating optimally.

SafeTstop Test

The SafetyStop machine test is a state-of-the-art diagnostic procedure designed to assess the safety and functionality of a vehicle's braking system and suspension system. During this test, the vehicle is securely placed on the SafetyStop testing equipment. The system then conducts a comprehensive evaluation of the vehicle's brakes by simulating real-world driving conditions.

Engine Inspection

Our skilled technicians perform a thorough examination of your vehicle's engine. This includes checking for any signs of wear and tear, fluid leaks, or irregularities in engine performance.

Oil and Filter Change

We replace the engine oil with oil to the manufacturers specifications and oil filter, ensuring that your engine is properly lubricated and protected against friction and heat.

Brake System Evaluation

Safety is paramount. We inspect the braking system, including the brake pads, rotors, and brake fluid, to ensure your vehicle can stop efficiently and safely.

Tyre Inspection

We assess the condition of your tyres, checking for tread wear, tire pressure, and alignment issues.

Properly maintained tyres are essential for traction and handling.

Fluid Level Check

 Our team examines and tops up essential fluids such as coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid to maintain optimal vehicle performance.

Battery Inspection

We inspect the battery and its connections to ensure reliable starting power. If needed, we clean terminals and complete a battery load test.

Air Filter Inspection

A clean air filter is crucial for engine efficiency. We inspect the air filter if it's clogged or dirty we will recommend replacement. 

Air Conditioning Cabin Filter Inspection

The technician visually examines the cabin air filter for signs of wear, damage, or clogging. They check for debris, dust, leaves, or other contaminants that may have accumulated on the filter's surface.

Exhaust System Check

Our technicians inspect the exhaust system for leaks or damage, ensuring that harmful emissions are properly managed.

Suspension and Steering Inspection

We examine the suspension and steering components to guarantee a comfortable and stable ride.
