Service FAQ’s

  • The engine's primary protection against debris and the premature wear that it causes, is the oil filter. Proper lubrication with manufacturer's approved oil is vital to the performance and longevity of your engine.

  • Failure to change your oil filter at regular intervals will cause your filter to become plugged, straining your engine.

  • Regular oil changes can save you money in the long run as it will protect your engine from wear and potential failure.

Recommended every 3 months or 5,000 kms.
  • The engine in your car relies on clean air to run properly.
  • Every time you accelerate, your vehicle draws air into the engine and it passes through the Engine Air Filter.
  • The engine air filter protects your engine by removing debris, dust, pollen, mold and dirt from the air before it passes through to your engine.
A dirty engine air filter could lead to:
  • Reduced fuel efficiency
  • Poor acceleration when you need it
  • Reduce engine performance
Recommended every 12 months or 20,000 kms.
This is the filter in the incoming air duct of your vehicle's heating and air conditioning system. It cleans the air coming into the passenger area. These filters become dirty and clogged by road debris, dirt and even leaves. When these filters become clogged, the AC and heating performance will be reduced. Clogged or dirty cabin filters can restrict the flow of air through the cabin vents and the quality of the air entering the passenger area will suffer. The Cabin air filter will reduce dust, pollen and mold particles from entering the passenger area. Recommended every 24 months or 36,000 kms.
Contaminants in your fuel system and deposits on your injectors can cause a decrease in the overall power of your vehicle. This will have a negative impact on your vehicles fuel efficiency, torque and towing capacity when needed. To ensure that you are getting optimal performance from your engine, a fuel system service is recommended.

Having a fuel system service will:
  • Improve the air flow to your fuel system

  • Improve the overall performance and power of your vehicle, on acceleration and while idling

  • Reduce harmful emissions

  • Promote efficient fuel flow therefore increasing the fuel efficiency of your vehicle which will in turn save you money

Recommended every 18 months or 30,000 kms.
A primary component in the operation of your engine is air. The throttle body controls the amount of air flowing into the engine. The plate in the throttle body opens and closes in response to the driver pressing down on and releasing the accelerator pedal. Over time, dirt and residue can form around the plate in the throat of the throttle body and can lead to:
  • rough idling

  • a feeling of missing or delay on acceleration

  • stalling

  • poor fuel economy

A throttle body service will clean out built up dirt and residue. This service will help improve fuel economy, performance and drivability.

Recommended every 36 months or 60,000 kms.
A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Something as simple as hitting a curb or a pothole can cause your vehicle to be out of alignment. Incorrect wheel alignment can affect the handling and safety of your vehicle, as well as cause irregular tire wear.

A proper wheel alignment can ensure control, safety and a longer tire life for your vehicle.

Recommended every 24 months or 40,000 kms.
Your transmission is made up of hundreds of parts that must operate together with precision to ensure optimum performance and timing. The transmission delivers the power from the engine to the wheels of your vehicle. It is subject to pressure, friction and debris could lead to poor performance and failure of your transmission.

Recommended every 30 months or 50,000 kms.
Tires tend to wear unevenly. Think about all the parallel parking, three point turns. With each turn of the steering wheel, pressure is brought to bear on the front tires. This is even more accentuated in front-wheel drive cars. As a result the front tires wear quicker than the rear tires. By rotating the tires from the front to rear you will equalize the tread wear and maximize the tires life.

Recommended every 12 months or 12,000 kms.
