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.

What is an engine oil change ?

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.


How much does an Oil Change cost?

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.

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

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.

How important is this service?

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.


Tune Up Service


How much does a Tune-Up cost?

The cost varies according to your vehicle and depends entirely on what you’re looking for. Replacing only the Spark plugs is usually between $100 to $200 with installation, and bigger tune-up jobs can go all the way to $500-$700 – again this all depends on the type of vehicle.

What is a car Tune-Up?

A car tune-up is a type of preventive maintenance done on a vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well. Usually, a tune-up is regularly scheduled (once a year is a very soft rule of thumb) and gives you the chance to get all of the preventive maintenance necessary for your car at that time. When you have a tune-up done, it will typically include the replacement of several important wear-and-tear parts, including replacing or cleaning the spark plugs and, on older cars, the distributor cap and rotor. Getting a car tune-up regularly will help you preserve your car's performance and extend its life.


Common signs that your car needs a Tune Up

  • Engine is performing inefficiently
  • Have not had any form of maintenance done for over 6 months
  • Clicking, squeaking or clunking noise is heard from car (may require oil change)
  • Engine is heating up abnormally (possible coolant change necessary)


How often to get a tune up?

Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions must be tuned every 15,000 to 20,000 km or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are programmed to go from 40,000 km to as many as 150,000 km without requiring a major tune-up.


Tire Swap Service


Why should I change my tires?

This is a common question we get – some people don’t realize how important it is to have the right tires on your vehicle. All tires are made for different purposes and designed to perform the better in certain situations. No tire is great for all purposes because of the very compound that’s used to make them.

In this video, you can see that depending on the temperature and road conditions, the type of tire on your car affects your stopping distance by up to 42% or 6.2m when stopping from 100 km/h. That's enough to make the difference between stopping on time or in the middle of an intersection.

For safety reasons, it's important to use the right tires at the right time of year. Keep yourself & your family safe.

What's the difference between a tire changeover and tire swap?

Tire Changeover

A tire changeover uses the rim same but we change the tires from winter to summer. We bring our van which includes a tire remover and tire balancer.

Starting at $139.99

Tire Swap

A tire swap is simply swapping your winter tires and rims with another set of summer tires and rims. We don’t need any special tools for this service.

Starting at $99.99

Furthermore, the distributor cap and rotor are also replaced on older vehicles. Getting a car check-up at regular intervals will increase the life of your vehicle.


    Signs that you need a car check

A good rule of thumb remains to get your car checked on a yearly basis, but you should check your car manufacturer's maintenance schedule to be certain.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What package should I get?
    If this is your first time with us, we recommend starting off with Service B. We suggest getting on an A-B-A-C schedule after that. This will ensure your car is properly maintained according to your manufacturer’s specifications.
    I just need an oil change, I don’t need the complete Service Package. Could I just get the oil change without the other stuff?
    Our Service Packages are designed to cover the essential points of your routine maintenance. If you’re looking for the most basic package, we recommend our Service A. The price is comparable to an oil change at a dealership or lube shops, but you also get a 21-point vehicle inspection and washer fluid top-up. It’s possible to get just the oil and filter changed, but the price will remain the same as for Service A, so we recommend taking advantage of the added value of the package.
    Can I supply the oil and filter myself?
    Unfortunately no. We supply the engine oil and filter to ensure that the correct parts and fluids are being used in your vehicle, and to be fully covered by our 12-month/20,000 km warranty.
    How do I know if I need synthetic or conventional oil?
    Most vehicles run perfectly fine on conventional oil, although some owners prefer synthetic oil as it is generally higher quality and allows your engine to last longer between oil changes. Ultimately, it is up to you which oil you would prefer. However, there are certain vehicles that require synthetic oil to perform effectively. These tend to be higher-end vehicles or vehicles with sensitive engine components. Our certified mechanics go by manufacturer specifications in choosing which oil is best for your vehicle.
    How often to change oil?
    Oil changes are typically recommended every 8,000 km or 6-month, whichever comes first.

    How often to change your engine oil and filter depends on the type of engine oil, the age and make of your vehicle and driving habits. According to Ford Motor Company, regular drivers that own 2008 and newer models can change their engine oil every 12,000 km or six months and drivers should change the oil in vehicles 2007 and older every 8,000 km or six months.

    Drivers with less typical driving habits, including frequent off-road driving or driving in dusty conditions, towing or carrying heavy loads, excessive idling or driving at low speeds for long distances, should change engine oil every 8,000 km or six months for vehicles 2008 and newer, and every 5,000 km or three months for cars 2007 and older.

    What is synthetic oil change interval?
    Although recommended oil change intervals vary by the vehicle manufacturer, in general, a good rule of thumb to follow is to change conventional motor oil every 8,000 km or 6 months, whichever comes first. If you're using full synthetic oil, you can go up to 12,000 km between changes.
    How long does an oil change take?
    An oil change takes about 15 minutes after your oil change begins. With instaMek there is no wait time prior as our certified mechanic comes to your home or office. The full maintenance service takes a bit longer, depending on the service package you select.
    How to check oil in car?
    Check your engine oil when the car is warm and on a flat, level surface. Stop the engine and wait a few minutes for the oil to settle. Remove the dipstick and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick all the way in, wait for a second, and then withdraw it and check the level. The oil should be between the two marks.
