    Default Sydney servicing

    Hi all,

    I'm a Melbournian who recently moved to Sydney, with my Citroen C4 VTS in tow.

    It's time for a service and was hoping you could advise me on the good place, that wont charge me a small fortune. I've visited Continental Cars and am considering them, but need some advice.

    The C4 is running very hot at the moment, no indication from the internal thermostat, but can feel excessive hot air coming in the footwell and air vents after about 15mins of city driving. Any suggestions what could cause it? It's been happening for a few weeks, coolant, oil etc is topped up.

    Thanks!

    Really, anyone can change the oil provided the right oil and filter. You have a few dealers to choose from in Sydney unless you want to use a specialist mechanic or the usual collection of mobile and general garages. Ask yourself what you get for the money and what you actually want done. Do you need all the filters including pollen filter, brakes etc. etc. ??? The costs will vary wildly depending on what is thought to be needed.

    Is the car telling you it's overheating on the dashboard or is it simply hot air from the AC? There is a cog on the AC mixer motor that can fail and a factory kit to fix the problem. That's best done by a dealer if it's the problem.

    Thanks David, I don't just want to take it to your local corner workshop, because of this heat issue, want to get it checked out properly. Nothing is appearing on the dash, and of course i don't feel it when i have the A/C on because its blowing in cool air
    I'll give Continental Cars a call
