During a major car service the technicians at Steves Auto Clinic will inspect the condenser and points and will replace these if necessary. The condenser is part of the electric system and critical to the correct operation of the points.


By inspecting it and replacing it if necessary, the team will ensure that the engine has a good combustion and that it operates efficiently. A engine with a capacitor and points that are malfunctioning will drive very differently from one where the capacitor is working properly, with a marked difference in the engine’s power delivery and the smoothness at which the engine revs.

An engine’s points and condenser will be inspected at Steves Auto Clinic as part of a major vehicle service.
