We recommend that you change the oil every 5,000 km with conventional oil and every 8,000 km with synthetic oil. This would insure that all internal parts work smoothly.
Signs Your Brakes Need to be Inspected
- Noise: screeching, grinding or clicking noises when applying the brakes.
- Pulling: vehicle pulls to one side while braking.
- Low Pedal:brake pedal nearly touches the floor before engaging.
- Hard Pedal: must apply extreme pressure to the pedal before brakes engage.
- Grabbing: brakes grab at the slightest touch to the pedal.
- Vibration: brake pedal vibrates or pulses, even under normal braking conditions.
- Light: brake light is illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard.
We recommend rotating your tires every 10,000 km’s. Rotating your tires ensures even tread wear that increase tire longevity and provides a smoother ride.
Besides the fuel, batteries are the second most important part of your vehicle. Embrun Auto Tech sells top quality batteries which assures the longest lasting batteries available go in your vehicle. We also have all the latest battery and charging system diagnosis equipment so we can make sure that it’s only your battery that needs to be replaced.
Particles like mold and mildew, pollen, microbes, and dust can easily harm engine parts. Air filters keep the air that moves into the engine clean from clutter. The majority of vehicles have 2 various sorts of air filters. The internal combustion air filter filtrations system the air pulled into the engine and avoids added wear on the engine by eliminating pollutants. The cabin air filter operates to cleanse the air that moves into the cabin with the ventilation system by eliminating unsafe elements from the air conditioning and heating systems. Both filters need to be changed once a year or 20,000 km’s whichever comes first.
The Check Engine light can be one of the most confusing warnings in your dashboard cluster because it offers no explanation as to why you suddenly need to check your engine. It sounds ominous and can be as serious as a malfunctioning catalytic converter or as trivial as a loose gas cap.
Belts and Hoses: variable, every 4-5 years or 80,000-100,000km
Accessory drive belts and timing belts (if equipped), as well as rubber hoses should be checked at service time for wear or cracking, and should be replaced as needed. If your car has a timing belt, change it every 4-5 years or every 80,000 to 100,000km, whichever comes first. Do not ignore this service. A broken timing belt can easily destroy an engine, and yes, they do break. Accessory drive belts should be changed around the same time, every 5 years or 100,000km.
Correct alignment is vital to safely driving your vehicle, extending tire life, braking stability, and ensuring a comfortable ride. The complexity of suspension systems requires precise measurements at all four wheels and careful adjustments. Many vehicle service centers will only suggest or offer front wheel alignment. However, at Crysler Automotive we recommend that all four wheels receive a computerized analysis to ensure maximum alignment accuracy of your vehicle.
A significant reduction in fuel mileage or noticeable change in a vehicle’s performance may indicate that the vehicle’s fuel injection system needs to be checked and cleaned. The problem may lie in other parts of the fuel system or other parts of the engine, but fuel injectors are usually the first part of a technician’s inspection.
Computer diagnostics allows you to:
• To identify the parameters of the engine and change them if necessary, to improve their performance key indicators;
• identify inconsistencies in the sensor, which may block some of the processes and even units;
• check the compliance of the electronic ignition system and injection control of bent shaft (angle of advance supply), which directly affects the quality of mixture formation and combustion of fuel;
• Check the condition of the electrical equipment and the car’s suspension.
Engine computer diagnosis methods, the available price can detect all faults and deviations at an early stage, when the relevant conduct of the other methods are not possible.
Apart from the main charging, starting and ignition circuits, there are other circuits that power lights, electric motors, the sensors and gauges of electrical instruments, heating elements, magnetically operated locks, the radio and so on.
All Circuits are opened and closed either by switches or by relays – remote switches operated by electromagnets.
As a general rule, Crysler Automotive recommends that the coolant should be replaced every 40,000 km’s or five years, whichever comes first. This ensures that the engine is protected from overheating and potentially engine damage.
Your vehicle’s exhaust system uses a muffler to substantially reduce the noise your engine makes. However, the most important function your exhaust system provides is the reduction of dangerous emissions produced by your engine. These emissions include carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and other pollutants that are unhealthy for both your vehicle’s passengers as well as the environment. Your catalytic converter serves as the primary source of removing these contaminants from your car’s emissions, while your exhaust pipe vents the emissions away from the vehicle and your passengers. It’s important to have your vehicle’s exhaust system serviced & inspected if you smell exhaust while inside the vehicle. Many problems with an exhaust system are easily repaired, and may need no parts replaced.
Your suspension system is very important because it’s what helps you stay in control when you’re on the road and provides a comfortable ride by minimizing bumps, vibrations, and noise. Be aware of a few warning signs that could mean your shock and struts need to be replaced: vehicle sways on turns or nose dives when you apply the brakes, excessive bouncing after hitting a bump, stiff or noisy steering or a bumpy, shaky ride.
There are many parts to any vehicle, thousands in fact, but some of the systems that control what your car does and how it does it can be more important than others. The transmission is one of the most important parts, as without it, the power from the engine could never reach the wheels, and your vehicle wouldn’t be much use. Crysler Automotive recommends that the transmission oil be replaced every 50,000 km’s. If you have a standard transmission then we recommend that the clutch be replaced every 80,000 km’s.
Sometimes the inter working of a combustion engine can break due to the extreme stresses of everyday use. Engine repairs are possible for any vehicle but can be costly. Repairing the internal parts of an engine is a complex job. We aren’t going to beat around the bush on that one. But, it is a lot cheaper than giving up on your vehicle and buying a new one. If the engine is too damaged for repair then the alternative is to swap out the engine with a certified reused one. Saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
