BATTERY

Example

DIAGNOSTICS
If you have any concerns about your battery the technician can complete a visual inspection to check terminal cleanliness or worn cables. In addition, an AVR test can be completed which informs the technician if the alternator is charging, condition of battery cells and if the starter is operating correctly. Once completed the technician will be able to advise you if your battery is good, needs cleaning, repair or needs to be replaced.

TERMINAL CLEANING
Overtime corrosion can build up on the terminals of the battery. Having the terminals cleaned prevents a bad connection and under charge of the battery. Along with cable replacement, terminal cleaning assists in proper diagnosis of vehicle electrical system. Dirty terminals or damaged cables can cause a false AVR reading.

CABLE REPLACEMENT
The battery cables are responsible for carrying the electrical current to and from the battery. If the cables are worn it could cause difficulty with starting the vehicle. Along with terminal cleaning, cable replacement assists in proper diagnosis of the vehicle electrical system. Dirty terminals or damaged cables can cause a false AVR reading.

REPLACEMENT
Once the technician has ensured cleanliness of the terminals, checked the cables and completed an AVR test that reveals that the battery is no longer operating as designed and is essential to be replaced, a new battery will be installed into the vehicle.


AIR INTAKE SYSYTEM

service_cooling
Example

INDUCTION
The induction system on a vehicle directs the air flow into the engine. When an induction system is dirty it can cause a decrease in fuel mileage and poor performance. The service preformed cleans the fuel injectors, throttle body and removes any deposits in the combustion chamber. This should correct the balance of fuel and air, which lowers emissions, increases fuel efficiency and restores horsepower. This service is recommended every 40,000 km or 2 years.
Newer vehicles that are direct injection no longer have the fuel injectors in the air intake system, and so the fuel no longer passes through the back of the valves. The injectors are now placed directly into the cylinders. With this direct injection style valves are no longer able to be cleaned by the fuel. An induction service is an essential service that is recommended on these vehicles.

THROTTLE BODY SERVICE
The throttle body is a part of the vehicle that works with the injection system. The injectors control the engine fuel intake, while the throttle body controls the engine air intake. When a throttle body is dirty, acceleration problems, sputter when idling or engine stalling may arise. A throttle body service allows for the carbon build up to be removed and restore the throttle body to properly function. This service is recommended every 40,000 km or 2 years.

AIR FILTER
This filter controls the air that enters the vehicle. It helps to catch any dirty, pollen, dust, and other particles that are in the air. This filter is routinely examined by the technician each oil change and the customer is notified when it is necessary to change it.


AC SYSTEM

service_cooling
Example

The AC system in the vehicle is what allows for you to cool your car on a hot summer’s day. Should you experience a lack of cool air it could be one of several things. Some possible issues may be that the vehicle may have low refrigerant, a condenser leak or the compressor may not be functioning. If any of these issues arise an AC service will allow for us to check the outlet temperature, pressures, and visual inspection for leaks. Further diagnostics may be required if a basic service cannot pin point the cause.


BRAKE SYSTEM

service_tires
Example

INSPECTION
Inspections are recommended every 10,000 km. or every 6 months or manufacturer recommendation. The service technician will inspect, where applicable, brake lines, drums, pads, shoes, calipers, disks, rotors, ABS and parking brake. This helps advise the customer of the condition of the braking system and effective in helping catch a potential issue.

SERVICE
To help extend the life span of your brakes, a brake service is recommended. A brake service is when all moving components are cleaned and lubricated, pads or shoes are deglazed, and if applicable, drums are adjusted. This prevents premature wear from seized component and promotes even pad wear. This service is recommended every 25,000 km or once a year.

REPLACEMENT
Brakes are parts on a vehicle that it is normal to have replaced due to constant use. Every application of the brakes causes a little wear and over time these parts need to be replaced for function and safety purposes. Where applicable, the following will be replaced: drums, pads, shoes, calipers, disks, rotors.

FLUID
Brake fluid is what is transmitted to each brake when you apply the pressure on the pedal to slow down or stop your vehicle. This fluid is the heart of the brake system. If the fluid is contaminated, or low, the brake system will not function properly. This service is recommended when a full brake replacement is completed or every 40,000km.


SUSPENSION / STEERING

service_steering
Example

STRUTS / SHOCKS
The suspension system on the vehicle is a key component in the handling of your vehicle. They help absorb any bumps or vibrations to ensure a comfortable ride. When these parts wear or break it can cause an uncomfortable ride, shaking, strut/shock leakage, excessive bouncing after going over bumps, difficult handling of the vehicle and strain on other vehicle components. An inspection of these parts is recommended every 6 months or at the first sign of deterioration.

ALIGNMENT
Everyday road conditions such as potholes, hitting a curb, or just regular wear and tear, can affect the alignment on a vehicle. Alignments are recommended every 25,000 km or once a year or when any of the above occur, new tires are installed or when any repairs/replacements have been completed on any suspension or steering components. When the alignment is off it can cause:
Tires to wear unevenly, which shortens the tire life span The vehicle pulling to the left or the right, making control and handling difficult Wear on the suspension and steering components.

POWER STEERING SERVICE
Everyday road conditions such as potholes, hitting a curb, or just regular wear and tear, can affect the alignment on a vehicle. Alignments are recommended every 25,000 km or once a year or when any of the above occur, new tires are installed or when any repairs/replacements have been completed on any suspension or steering components. When the alignment is off it can cause:


DIAGNOSTICS

Example

From engine diagnostics to electrical to suspension noises. We diagnose any issue on all vehicle makes and models.


DASHBOARD INDICATIOR LIGHTS

service_dashboard
Example

Have a light appear on your dashboard? Unsure of what it means? Check out our dashboard light chart or bring your vehicle by and have a technician inform you of what it means.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS
Has the vehicle check engine light come on? Don’t ignore that light. When a check engine light comes on it can be caused by many concerns from a minor loose gas cap to a major issue with the engine. To be sure bring your vehicle in and have a technician use our state of the art scanning equipment to read the code and properly diagnose the issue.


TRANSMISSION

service_diagnostics
Example

Automatic Transmissions control the shifting of gears in your vehicle for the driver. The fluids are responsible for keeping the transmission lubricated and clean. Overtime the fluids are unable to do their job properly due to deposit build ups and fluid breakdown. A service allows for the deposits and old fluids to be removed and clean fluids to enter the transmission. This service is recommended every 50,000 km or 2 years. An additional component to maintaining a healthy transmission, if applicable, is a filter replacement
Manual Transmissions are controlled by the driver of the vehicle and their shifting of gears. Due to the driver handling the gear changing it can cause gears, synchronizers and bearings to wear differently than an automatic transmission. This can produce metal flakes in the fluid which contaminates it and does now allow it operated as designed. This service is recommended every 50,000 km.

CLUTCH
Like many components in your vehicle, the clutch wears down over time. The clutch is what connects the wheels to the engine. If you hear a chattering, or your clutch engages and disengages close to the floor those are some tell tail signs the clutch needs to be replaced. We offer installation of all clutch components.


WINDSHIELD REPAIR

service_working
Example

Have a minor chip or crack in the windshield? Come in and have it inspected and repaired. Leaving a minor chip or crack unrepaired may cause them to grow, spread across the windshield and result in a windshield replacement.


DRIVE LINE

service_driveline
Example

TRANSFER CASE
The transfer case is what sends power from the vehicles engine and transmission to the front and rear axles through the drive shafts. The transfer case also controls the coordination of the rotation of the front and rear wheels. It is important to change the lubricating fluid in the transfer case so that it can operate as manufactured and keep the gears inside turning smoothly and cool. This service is recommended.

FRONT / REAR DIFFERENTIAL SERVICE
The vehicles differential takes the driveshaft movements and sends them to the axel shafts, this allows for the wheels to turn. The differential fluid allows for the components inside the differential to stay lubricated and function as manufactured. A differential service is recommended

AXEL SHAFT
The axle shaft is what connects the gears in the transmission to the wheels of the vehicle. The axle shaft is comprised of several parts that that make it function, the shaft itself, the inner/outer CV joints and CV boots. The CV boots help protect the CV joints. Worn or torn boots can cause the lubricant to leak and dirt and moisture into the joint which then prevents the parts from functioning as manufactured. Regular inspections of the boots will help prevent failure of the axle shaft.

DRIVE SHAFT
The driveshaft is used on rear wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles. The driveshaft is what connects transmission to the differential and sends torque from the engine to the axles. The driveshaft has U-Joints at each end of the shaft which allows the shaft to move. Possible symptoms of bad U-Joints are clunking noises when shifting into or out of reverse, squeaking when accelerating. It is important to bring the vehicle in for an inspection if any of those symptoms are occurring to prevent any further damage.


EXHAUST

service_driveline
Example

Has your vehicle's exhaust started sounding louder than normal? Do you hear rattling noises when you start your car, accelerate or brake? These could all be signs that your exhaust system is not operating as designed. From repairing leaks to changing a hanger to replacing the catalytic convertor we offer inspections, repairs and replacements on all exhaust system components.
