Basic Servicing & Maintenance FAQs

Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 15-20,000 km. or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 40,000 km. to as many as 160,000 km. without needing a major tune-up.

It depends on how often you use your car as well as how bad the air quality/humidity level, but we recommend a similar service interval as your house a/c unit cleaning. Approximately every 6 months to a year, or if you notice other issues such as an unpleasant odor, restricted airflow, or sub par cooling.

Generally at every oil change is sufficient to take a quick look at hoses and connections, but a more in depth look on older cars is a good idea every 6 months or so. The older the car the more often you should do it. Almost all of the engine overhaul jobs we take in are from cooling system failure, so don’t put it off!

This depends on your driving habits, but we’d recommend doing it about every 8-12,000km at the same time as having your tires rotated.

Approximately every 8-12,000 km. We’d recommend going ahead and have your brakes inspected at the same time since the wheels will be off.

The basic fluids and filters inspection, as well as the oil change, and invoicing should only take about 45 min. If however you decide to do any other recommended servicing or repair items found from our inspection it will take longer depending on work.
