    Haha no. If something's broken, you'll need to pay to get it repaired.

    A service is just a fancy oil change.

    No, but they might tell you if there's something that looks wrong to them whilst during it. Really depends, most minor services are just a filter and oil change, my garage drove my car and gave me a heads up that whatever I'm doing to speed bumps and curbs needs to stop as my rear suspension is already feeling it But it wasn't from Ford, it was through a 3rd party performance tuner garage (as Ford will reset my ECU if I bring them my car, which I obviously don't want)

    Depends on the garage but plugging in a laptop to check fault codes will probably be part of the 'service'.

    Depending on the issue they may just inform you when you pick the car up, or phone you to see if you want them to repair it.
