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.
How to change engine oil?

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.

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 amount of time since your last oil change exceeds the recommended miles.
  • You notice fluids on your driveway.
  • 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.
