Tune Up Service

How much does a Tune Up cost?

The cost varies according to your vehicle and depend 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.

I contacted instaMek to take a look at my car that wouldn't start. Mohamed came to do a diagnosis - he was prompt, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Moe was able to get a replacement part right away and complete the repair on the same day. Not only is it convenient to have a mechanic come to you, but the service was great from the booking stage right through to the completion of the work. The text messages letting you know when the Mek is on the way, and the job reports provide the value-add. Highly recommended!read more

Such a great service! Great costumer service. The secretary was super helpful for a first time car buyer and Mohammed the guy that checked out the vehicle was also great! He arrived on time and explained everything I needed to know about the car in detail and was also super friendly. They literally checked out everything which I super appreciate. Highly recommend.

instaMek definitely helped me when I needed the service as I had to get going back on the road as soon as possible. I was panicked and send a message late night to Uzair and he quickly guided me through the process which was nice and easy and the office followed through the next morning. Alexey, our mechanic was well educated and actually really funny, making the process seem faster. He was able to diagnose the problem quickly, present the options and fix it within two hours. Also the best part is they give you a heads up when they will be coming, drive to you and then diagnose and fix on the spot. Therefore, I could carry on with my day.I definitely recommend this company to my friends and family.read more

Ive read some bad reviews for this company that made me a little sceptical. However instaMek just saved me a fortune. They did a full service report on a truck which i was more inclined to purchase. The report showed a number of faults that would have put me out of pocket if i did buy it. I will definitely be using them again as im on a truck hunt and i cleary can't decipher a good truck or a bad truck. Thanks instaMek!read more
