Oil Change Service

Engine oil is the lifeblood of the engine. All internal, moving components of the motor have to be lubricated by the engine oil. Insufficient lubrication may cause the components to wear out quicker and finally cause engine failure. The oil filter keeps the oil clean and free from debris. If the filter isn’t replaced on a regular basis, it is going to get clogged and won’t have the ability to pass oil to the motor.

Fresh engine oil is the color of amber but with time it can turn black and in several cases, it can even get gritty as it dissolves the dirt. Frequent engine oil changes replace the oil and keep the engine clean. In some cases, there is a residual build up on the engine and an engine oil flushes required.

FAQs

Q. What is an engine oil change ?

Ans:

An engine oil change refers to removing oil from the vehicle and replacing it with fresh oil. If an engine oil flush is being performed, the engine oil change is carried out at the same time. Once the old oil is taken out, chemicals are added into the engine which is left idle for a few minutes to ensure the cleaning agents reach all the spots where oil normally goes. Clean oil is then poured in once the chemicals are drained.

Q. How much does an Oil Change cost?

Ans:

Our oil change service comes with regular car maintenance. Look up the recommended service schedule for your vehicle and choose from one of the four maintenance packages below.

Our recommendation:

It is best to follow the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer. A good rule of thumb is replacing the oil and filter every 8,000 km or six months.

Q. What are the common symptoms indicating you need an oil change?

Ans:

The exact rule of thumb on this varies, but you should change your car oil at least every 6 months or every 7,500km

  • The amount of time since your last oil change exceeds the recommended miles.
  • You notice fluids on your driveway.
  • You do a lot of driving.
  • You have your car unused for months.
  • The Maintenance light is on.

Q. How important is oil change service?

Ans:

Regular oil changes are generally considered the most important maintenance service for your car. Do not drive your car with low engine oil. It can severely damage the engine. To avoid severe engine damage, this simple and inexpensive service should be regularly scheduled.

David with instaMek was great! Swapped the tires out and completed an oil changed. Checked out the brakes and gave solid recommendations. Will definitely reach out for work needed in the future.

Happy with my experience with Instamek. David Peacock came by to change my oil and inspect a new-to-me vehicle I recently purchased for any issues. He was thorough and detailed in his inspection and took the time to explain his findings to me afterwards. Professional, friendly and prompt. I would recommend David at Instamek for anyone looking for a mechanic.

David was excellent. He was able to come even earlier than expected, was very thorough, explained our options well and there was no hassle or pressure. Our vehicle had absolutely no power so it was wonderful to not have to have it towed somewhere. Great to have the vehicle back on the road and look forward to using the service again for other maintenance! Would highly recommend.

My friends would say I’m a pretty rough critic when it comes to service. What I will say about Dave at Instamek is that the service was ON POINT, TOP NOTCH and a great lesson learned (keep reading I have good points).THIS REVIEW IS FOR AN INSPECTION SERVICE for the purchase of a pre-owned vehicle. Because of the solid inspection that Dave at Instamek did, I definitely did not purchase this pre-owned vehicle from this licensed AMVIC dealer (which will remain unnamed to be respectful to all in this transaction). I am so GRATEFUL that I used this service and had Dave do the inspection. Not only did this inspection save me a pile of dough by not buying a money pit but I also I learned so much about the specific vehicle that I was about purchase. As well I learned about the years, make and model of this vehicle in general. Dave was also able to tell me what to be cautious about when purchasing other makes of vehicles too. I consider myself a pretty average vehicle owner when it comes to being able to do my own vehicle maintenance and repair. I knew a few things to look out for but nothing like a professional mechanic. Dave was super kind about things but I was honestly humbled in my own mind by the amount of concerns and issues he was able to find that were beyond my knowledge. Watching Dave do the inspection gave me a quick idea of how much trouble and work this vehicle would have put me through. Being able to ask him rough costs of repairs gave a huge amount of clarity regarding the high short and long term expenses. It made the decision to not buy and save myself a lot of time, money and sanity very easy.I found Instamek on a recommendation from another mechanic shop that told me that they don’t do mobil service. They told that they recommend Instamek to customers when it’s an out of shop no tow call.Overall I will say to anyone purchasing a pre-owned vehicle “Don’t be silly, be humble and GET A PROFESSIONAL THIRD PARTY MECHANIC! I RECOMMEND INSTAMEK because of service quality and mobility (request Dave if you can). Remember that it’s a lot cheaper to pay for the inspection and not buy than it is to get stuck with a money pit / lemon that will decimate your bank account for years.”

Jack from Instamek was absolutely amazing! My fiancé's car (2014 Fiat 500L) would not start, and a different mechanic told us it needed a new starter and it would be about a thousand dollar job, plus a tow. That did not seem quite right so I thought to get a second opinion. Jack figured out it was an oil pressure issue, and fixed it on the spot on the consultation visit (I was totally expecting it needing a "follow-up" with added labour and parts). Incredible, I am thoroughly impressed and thankful for Jack's honest and informed work, and to Instamek. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My mechanic, David, was great. The diagnostic was quick. The repair took place 24 hours later. David explained everything he was doing and also provided a lot of information on future maintenance that could be done. I would recommend Instamek to anyone.

I’ve been a prime member with instamek for about a year now. They’ve always been wonderful and it’s definitely worth having for maintenance and repairs here and there! We had Ryan fix our car today, as we bought a used car that was in a bit of rough shape. He got it back sounding like new again and was very informative about the parts used and what we’ll most likely need done in the future. Now we feel safe to driving our car with our baby girl ☺️ Thanks Ryan!

Grant was my mechanic and he did an amazing job! Asked for a mechanic to come check out why my car wasnt starting, he figured it out quickly and it only ended up being $200. He also did my brakes that day because he noticed that they were very bad (whoops)I enjoyed his speedy service that I also booked an oil change the next day.The prime membership paid for itself plus more on the first day, it is an amazing deal!

Had InstaMek technician, Jack, come out to perform comprehensive vehicle maintenance as well as replace wiper blades. The job was performed thoroughly and with professionalism. The car is happy, the driver is happy. InstaMek technicians and administrative team offer great customer service, and their prime membership package is the best in town.

I used Instamek to have my oil changed and some inspection done on my car. Booking process was very easy and was 100% online. I was able to connect with a Mechanic on the same day and service was done in my apartment and it took just 1 hour.My instaMek representative Robert was amazing - He showed up on time, was courteous and always answered all my questions with a smile. I will definitely use their service going forward and can wholeheartedly recommend this business to anyone reading my review. Go ahead with these guys and you won't be disappointed.

Jack was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He answered all my questions and kept me informed on every step. Instamek is a great service, it's so nice having the mechanic come to you and do everything on the spot. We had a simple battery replacement, but were unsure if it might be another issue. Jack diagnosed the problem, had a part delivered and was done and on his way in about an hour and a half. All I had to do was hand him the keys and comfortably wait in my own home. Rates are very reasonable and they tell you the cost of everything before you buy, and include a one year warranty on their parts and service. They also offer a premium subscription which includes discounts on maintenance and repairs (including this one) and two free inspections a year. Opted in, as it basically pays for itself just in what you save on oil changes. Instamek is the future of vehicle service. 10/10 would recommend.

Extremely professional and efficient. Jack was my mechanic helping me out with a huge oil leak and he was able to fix the entire issue in an afternoon. Will absolutely be returning to him for any future issues. Fantastic job!
