Today’s engines operate better, last longer and are more fuel-efficient than engines of 10 or 20 years ago. And in order to keep them working at their peak performance, they continue to need a regular tune-up. Today’s tune-up is very different than one from 20 years ago. Yes, we still check the plugs, filters and fluid levels, but these days there is a very different aspect to a tune-up.
Today’s engines work better in part because of the computer-controlled electronics in your engine compartment. These complex components are designed to talk directly the scopes and diagnostic equipment here at Tony’s Garage. Our trained technicians can interpret the readings, spotting small difficulties before they become expensive problems. Their technical expertise will ensure that your fuel efficiency is optimized, that your car is running reliably and no problems are looming.
Never before has a tune-up been able to tell us so much about your car. Never has a tune-up been more necessary to automotive peace of mind. Phone us at (519) 941-2277 and have one of our skilled technicians schedule a tune-up appointment for you.
Every one from your father to your buddies to your bank manager has said to change your oil regularly. Well, everyone at Tony’s Garage will join the chorus. Your engine generates temperatures in excess of 200 degrees, or higher. Your motor oil lubricates and helps to cool your engine.Over time motor oil loses some of its viscosity (its ability to flow). It is recommended that you change the oil in your car every 5,000 kilometres. Just call us at Tony’s Garage. We can change your oil this time or set up a schedule for you to regularly have your oil changed with the seasons, or each month depending on your driving habits.
And be sure to check your oil regularly. The proper fluid level is important to have your engine function at its peak efficiency.
The leading cause of traffic accidents is brake failure. WOW!And brake failure is nearly always preventable. Stop worrying about potential failures and enjoy peace of mind. Tony’s Garage is a brake specialist.
Come in for a brake inspection.
We will check:
- Pads and shoes for wear
- Drums and rotors for wear
- Wheel cylinders and calipers for leaks
- Hydraulic lines and hoses for leaks, kinks and blockages
- Fluid in the master cylinder for level and condition.
Checking your brake system regularly will often save you in the long run. Replacing worn pads before they damage the disks or drums is a modest cost. If you wait until your car is sounding like a streetcar, you will likely have more extensive repairs and a higher cost.
If any work is necessary, we will give you a choice of parts. A better grade of materials (pads for example) may be one of the best bargains around. They will last longer and perform better then standard grades. You are in control. Both here at Tony’s Garage and on the road when the need arises.
Air Conditioning Service
Remember the hazy, lazy days of summer. Lying on the beach, cooling off in the water. Then walking back to the car, opening the door and being hit with the wall of super heated air. First thing is to start the car and put the air conditioning on full force.If you have an older car, the refrigerant used is likely freon or R-12. However, R-12, is partially responsible for depletion of the ozone layer. The refrigerant is no longer manufactured and its use is strictly controlled. If you have a failure with your air conditioning system, you will likely require a conversion kit to modify the type of coolant used to a much less harmful R-134a. These conversions are reliable, and let you do your part to protect the environment.
