Performance and longevity of your vehicle are directly influenced by this upkeep. By prioritizing regular oil maintenance, you can keep your car running reliably for years to come.

At our service center, we understand the significance of essential vehicle maintenance. Our commitment is to assist you in keeping your vehicle in optimal condition.

ENGINE OIL

Engine oil is essential for your car’s well-being. It plays a critical role in lubricating moving parts, reducing wear, and regulating engine temperature.

Regular Oil Changes: A Must for Optimal Performance

Consistent oil changes are crucial to maintain your vehicle’s performance. Although most manufacturers suggest an oil change every 5,000 to 8,000 kilometers, it’s best to refer to your owner’s manual for your specific vehicle’s needs.

DIY Engine Oil Check: A Simple Routine

Checking your engine oil is an easy yet vital maintenance step. Park on a level surface with a warm, but turned off engine. Find the dipstick, wipe it clean, reinsert it, then check the level. The oil should be between the two marks on the dipstick to indicate an adequate level.

Warning Signs for Oil Changes

Be alert for symptoms like unusual engine noise, changes in oil texture, or a burning odor. These signs often suggest the need for an oil change.

Prioritize Your Engine’s Health

Don’t let your engine’s health slide. Schedule an oil change with our service department today and ensure your vehicle’s heart keeps beating strong.

TRANSMISSION OIL

Transmission oil, or transmission fluid, is a key element in maintaining your vehicle’s transmission system. It ensures that the moving parts within the transmission are well-lubricated, facilitating smooth gear shifts and contributing to the system’s longevity.

Regular Checks and Replacement for Peak Performance

It’s crucial to regularly check and replace your transmission oil to maintain optimal vehicle performance. Ignoring this maintenance task can lead to accelerated wear and tear, which might result in expensive repairs. Typical service for transmission fluid is 80,000 kms.

Cooling and Protecting the Transmission

Apart from lubrication, transmission fluid also plays a vital role in cooling the transmission. This is especially important under high-stress driving conditions, such as towing or navigating in stop-and-go traffic.

Keep Your Transmission Healthy

To avoid transmission issues and ensure your vehicle runs smoothly, keep an eye on your transmission oil. Schedule a check-up with our service experts to ensure your transmission stays in top shape.

UNDERSTANDING DRIVELINE OILS

Understanding Driveline Oils: Key to Vehicle Power Transfer

Drive line oils, also known as driveline, differential, and transfer case oils, play a crucial role in your vehicle’s performance. They are responsible for transferring power from the engine and transmission to the wheels, ensuring smooth operation.

Differentials and Transfer Cases: Not Always Present in Every Vehicle

Not every vehicle has all three components: front and rear differentials and a transfer case. Particularly, front-wheel drive cars may have a non-serviceable front differential, while all-wheel drive vehicles typically feature both a rear differential and a transfer case.

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Adhering to the recommended maintenance schedule for changing these oils is vital for your vehicle’s health. Regular servicing ensures longevity and optimal performance of your vehicle. Recommended driveline interval is 40,000 kms.
