Service (motor vehicle) – Wikipedia

Periodic maintenance of a motor vehicle

A motor vehicle service or tune-up is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has traveled a certain distance. The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some modern cars display the due date for the next service electronically on the instrument panel. A tune-up should not be confused with engine tuning, which is the modifying of an engine to perform better than the original specification, rather than using maintenance to keep the engine running as it should.

The completed services are usually recorded in a service book upon completion of each service. A complete service history usually adds to the resale value of a vehicle.

Scheduling[edit]

The actual schedule of car maintenance varies depending on the year, make, and model of a car, its driving

Automotive, Motor Racing, Architecture, Design, Science Unite In The Fight Against COVID-19

Industry, science, engineering and design have joined forces to help fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Working in teams and with modern manufacturing methods, they are collectively and rapidly designing, producing and distributing COVID-19 medical respiratory devices and face shields to help with shortages in hospitals around the world.
