Tune ups


Keeping your investment running right not only saves you money but increases the resale value of your car. 

 The Environmental Protection Agency states that regular engine tune-ups—especially in regard to spark plugs—can increase fuel economy by up to 20% and will also reduce air pollution.   

Cabin Air Filter


 What is a cabin air filter?

The primary purpose of cabin air filters is keeping the air inside your vehicle’s cabin clean.

 Its job is to filter all of the air that comes through the car’s HVAC system to prevent pollutants, such as dust, pollen, smog and mold spores from entering. The filters can also catch rodent droppings, leaves and other unwanted debris. They are usually replaced every year or when manufacturers specify.

Pressure Test and Radiator Flush


    Radiator Flush 

Keep your car running cool by maintaining your coolant system and having your radiator hoses checked regularly.   

 A flush can help your car's cooling system operate more effectively by removing all of the old anti-freeze, rust and scale from your cooling system .The additives and anti- corrosive properties in the new coolant will help lubricate the vehicle's water pump, (old antifreeze eventually turns acidic and will not lubricate as well, possibly resulting in seal and bearing failures).

We will perform a complete inspection of your cooling system before we do a radiator flush including pressure tests to check for leaks in the system.

Transmission Fluid Change or Flush?


    Transmission Fluid Flush

The rule of thumb is approximately every 50,000 Km - but this depends on the model and make of your car. Some manufacturers recommend changing it more often and some are “lifetime” fluids. We can check your owner’s manual  for specific information on the particular make and model's recommended maintenance schedule. If your car has higher mileage, over 150,000 Km, we recommend going to a transmission shop for further care. Flushes are inexpensive, transmissions are not !!!

More stuff we do!



We carry a wide range of charged batteries ready to go. Typically car batteries last approximately 7 years in  warmer climates like Vancouver. We can load test your battery and clean your terminals to ensure you won't end up on the end of tow truck!

Flat Repairs


If you have a flat, we will find the source of the leak and either repair it or replace the tire if the damage is too severe. 

Pre Purchase Inspections



Our technicians will give your vehicle a thorough inspection to determine its cosmetic, mechanical and safety condition. We will pinpoint any existing conditions and highlight potential issues that could arise in the future. A complete inspection will typically take an hour and we will provide you with a detailed report to help you decide if the vehicle is the right one for you!
