Routine Auto Maintenance
Our harsh Alberta weather mandates scheduling regular auto service for all your Edmonton vehicles so you never risk a roadside breakdown. Perhaps if we lived in a more temperate climate, you could skip or extend some of the routine maintenance on your vehicles without risking your life. However, our climate makes that too dangerous.
Regular maintenance assures your vehicle runs smoothly, gets better gas mileage and prevents minor problems from becoming huge and costly. So, contact us and allow one of our certified, experienced mechanics to check out your vehicle and help ensure the safety of you and your family.
Routine oil changes and vehicle maintenance makes your vehicle last longer. As oil circulates through your engine, it picks up metal filings and other contaminants. In time, continuous recirculation of dirty oil badly damages your engine — perhaps beyond repair.
When you have your oil changed regularly, you are extending the life of your vehicle and cashing in on your investment. Contact A-1 Tire & Battery Service in Edmonton for auto service and regular oil changes. To serve you best, we stock filters for all makes and models and offer oil changes using either regular oil or synthetic oil.
Belts fray, sparkplugs become too tired to spark, filters clog, and hoses split. It is the nature of age and use of our vehicles. That is why having a point-by-point inspection of your vehicle done regularly is so important. Inspections catch wear and possible problems before they develop into major, costly ones and strand you on the road.
Vehicle inspections and regular maintenance decreases the possibility of a major breakdown of your car or truck. Our mechanics have decades of experience and are certified so you can depend on receiving high-quality service and high-performance products when we maintain your vehicles.
Being able to stop suddenly is imperative when you are on the road, so your brakes must respond immediately when you step on the pedal. Brake issues that are avoided can turn a situation into an accident where reliable breaks would have kept you safe. If your brakes begin to feel spongy or respond differently, you hear a screech or grind, or you feel a grabbing when you brake, your brakes need servicing.
Our certified auto mechanics provide complete brake service and other auto repair and auto service for all your Edmonton and area vehicles. Keep yourself, your family, and others around you safe by maintaining the brakes on your vehicles. If you suspect an issue with your brakes, call to book brake service immediately.
For your vehicle to run smoothly, your transmission must be healthy and operating at peak condition. Today’s transmissions are comprised of mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical systems, under computer control. As we said — complicated. That’s why you need to bring your vehicle to the pros for complete auto service.
Overheating is the most common cause of transmission problems. Struggling in the snow in our Alberta winters, stop-and-go traffic, hot weather, heavy pulling, or racing can overheat your vehicle’s motor. As your transmission fluid burns at the higher temperatures, deposits are made inside the transmission and lubrication is lost. At the first sign of transmission problems, contact us to schedule auto service for your Edmonton vehicle.
