frequently asked questions

We get many questions about car maintenance and service and we have decided to try to shed some light on some of them. These are standard guidelines – you should always consult your vehicle’s maintenance guide to determine its needs.

Typical intervals for new cars are between 5,000 to 15,000 kilometers; vehicles equipped with a diesel engine may have an interval of up to 20,000 kilometers.

Intervals for flushing the system and replacing coolant vary, as some manufacturers promise long lasting antifreeze good past 100,000 kilometers.

A general time-frame would be every few years or 30,000 to 40,000 kilometers.

Consult your vehicle’s maintenance guide to determine its needs.

Manufacturers today promise over 100,000 kilometers before a tune-up that includes changing the plugs.

Still, checking the plugs at 50,000 to 60,000 kilometers is not a bad idea. 

The interval for changing the filter depends on the quality of filter, type of vehicle, and environment in which most driving occurs.

Travelling on dirt roads will surely clog a filter faster than paved highways. Also, local pollution can determine filter life. 

The interval of changing a battery depends on the type of battery, type of vehicle, and local climate. Super cold regions may require a more powerful battery for cold starting, or a block heater.

Also, rechargeable batteries that have completely lost their charge at some point often never reach full potential again. 

Wipers need to be replaced, especially in climates with ice and snow. Sometimes just the blade needs replacing, while other times the entire wiper unit should go.

Some customers may choose different types of wiper blades for better performance. 

The type of vehicle, specific tire and driving style determine the life of a tire. Many are rated to last 30,000 to 70,000 kilometers, but an aggressive driving style can wear out tires in as little as 15,000 kilometers.

No tire is perfect, as extra competence in one category often means compromise in another. For example, a tire that is great in snow may be so-so on dry pavement and average in the rain.

Try to find reviews on a tire to determine if it meets your criteria.

Yes. The front tires on your vehicle wear differently and more quickly than the rear tires – especially if it is a front-wheel drive. 

Rotating tires from front to rear several times during their life-cycle will:

  • Help to equalize tread wear
  • Provide an opportunity to inspect your tires for any damage
  • Ensure that you maximize the life of all 4 tires

Typically, tire pressure should be checked at least once a month as tires that are not properly inflated can compromise both the handling and safety of your vehicle.

If your tire pressure is too high, your tires are over inflated and have less contact with the road. This gives you less grip, traction and power, and increases your effective stopping distance. Over-inflation also increases tire wear in the center portion of the tread and exposes your tires to damage from objects on the road and potholes.

If your tire pressure is too low, too much of your tire is in contact with the road. This makes your tire hot and may result in overheating. In the worst-case scenario, this may cause tire failure. Under-inflation also increases tire wear on the tread at the edges and decreases your fuel economy.

Your recommended tire pressure can be found on a sticker in the driver’s door jamb or fuel-filler door. This is the ideal pressure for the tires used on your specific model vehicle.

The pressure indicated on your tire wall is the maximum allowable tire pressure, not the recommended pressure.
