Short Journeys? If you only do short journeys chances are your not getting you engine warm enough to evaporate any water - Oil and water don't mix and you end up with a mayonnaise like substance in your engine - This can be very damaging so make sure you take it for a longer drive and get it serviced more regularly.
The engine is the beating heart of any car - look after it by getting it serviced on a regular basis at least every 12 months
If your car has been sat for a while or the performance is lower than you would normally expect an engine flush can be added before a service to clean our the engine before new oil is added.
