What is an Engine Service?

An engine service is a type of preventive maintenance performed on a vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well. The engine service is usually regularly scheduled according to your car manufacturer’s guidelines. When you get an engine service, it will usually include the replacement and cleaning of parts like spark plugs. Getting an engine service regularly will help you maintain your car's performance and extend its life.

Common Signs And Symptoms That You Need An Engine Service

  • You have not had any form of maintenance done for over 6 months
  • Your engine is performing poorly
  • You hear clunking, squeaking or clicking noise heard from car (a sign that you may need oil change)
  • Your engine is heating up abnormally (possible coolant change needed)
  • How often to get an Engine Service?

    Older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions need to be tuned every 15,000 to 20,000 km or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems can go from 15,000 km to as many as 150,000 km without needing a major Engine Service. A good rule of thumb is to get your engine serviced once a year as your do your regularly scheduled maintenance. You can look-up your car manufacturer's maintenance schedule for to find out with what frequency you should schedule an engine service.

    Easy to set up an inspection at the location you need. Had a pre-purchase inspection for a used vehicle done by them and was very happy with their customer service and the results they gave me. Very thorough inspection that made me confident I was buying the right car!

    Mek Alexey was a great mechanic, he saved me potentially a couple thousands in repairs. You pay alot for the service but it's well worth it in the long run. InstaMek is a great company, will use again!

    I have multiple experiences with instamek and they're my goto mechanics now. The service is quick and the staff friendly. I first heard about them through BCAA when I wanted to get a car inspected but since have used them to replace my battery and brakes. Thanks again guys!

    The mechanic that came was very professional. I needed to get my battery replaced which he was able to do quickly on the spot. So convenient, great customer service and I would use them again for any repairs on my car in the future. I didn’t know mobile mechanics existed, doesn’t get any more convenient than that! So glad I found you guys!
