Vehicle Maintenance and Oil Change in Edmonton, AB

Our certified mechanics come to you · Backed by 12-month / 20,000 km gold standard warranty program.

A car is a complex machine with numerous types of systems working in tandem. It combines mechanical and electrical systems that allow the vehicle to move. There are many different types of car systems, and each has its role in how the vehicle operates. While the systems are different, they have one thing in common. These systems, made up of working parts and electrical relays, require periodic maintenance.

The Fundamentals of Car Maintenance Services

Car maintenance is a serious business, and a lack of it always ends badly with an unforeseen breakdown. Among the many systems in a car that require regular maintenance are the brakes, tires and engine. The service schedule for each one of the components is different. Hence as a car owner, knowing when your engine oil was replaced, or the coolant was topped up will improve the longevity of your vehicle. The following are some crucial basics that help you better understand your car’s maintenance requirements.

How Often Should You Take Your Car in for an Inspection:

The recommended maintenance schedule of the manufacturer determines the frequency of car inspections. But at the same time, factors such as the mileage of the car and the conditions the vehicle is used in play a significant role in determining the inspection frequency. The consensus in all automobile forums tends to be in terms of time frame only.

The number of miles should dictate the maintenance schedule. Transmission and oil replacement is the most frequent maintenance activity among all your car’s maintenance requirements. Hence we recommend placing an order with Instant Car Repair Edmonton’s vehicle maintenance service every 5000 to 12000 kilometres – depending on your vehicle.

Signs Your Car Needs Maintenance

  • Strange Sounds: Metallic clatter, high-pitched squeals, engine knocking, and rumbling sounds are among the common sounds emanating from a car needing maintenance. These sounds usually mean your transmission, wheels, brakes or engine components require an overhaul.  
  • Constant stalling: If your car stalls a lot while driving, it could be due to a hard clutch, inefficient fuel delivery to the engine, wheels that require lubrication or unclean air cleaner sponges and intake manifolds.
  • Starting Trouble: Starting troubles can be caused by simple reasons such as a failed spark plug to engine valves with far too much clearance. Is your car not starting as well as it used to? Time to pop the hood!
  • Leaking: Leaking fluids are always a red flag. They are also unsafe since most of them, like transmission oil, are flammable. An essential car maintenance activity is ensuring oil and coolant levels are accurate.
  • Low Oil Light: Every time the oil levels are low, immediately turn your car in for service. Low engine oil levels always lead to a catastrophic engine failure that will set you back by a few thousand dollars.

Why is oil changing important for my car?

The oil in your car helps to lubricate its moving parts and keeps them running efficiently. If your vehicle does not have enough oil, the moving parts will begin to wear down and, in the worst cases, lead to an engine seizure. Making sure you get regular oil changes can help prevent vehicle breakdowns.

 

In addition to lubricating the moving parts of your vehicle, the oil also acts as a cooling agent that helps your car stay cool while you drive. The heat from your engine can cause it to break down prematurely if it is not adequately cooled, so making sure that you change the oil and replace the oil filter regularly can help prevent this from happening.
