Here are some of the frequently asked questions our busy Aitkenvale workshop receives.
Yes, your vehicle can be serviced by us while under the manufacturer's new car warranty.
This generally depends on the make and model of your car. Some manufacturer's advise engine oil to be changed at 5,000km while others recommend 10,000km. What we suggest is your engine oil and filter be renewed every six to eight months at not more than 10,000km.
Yes, we conduct two-wheel and four-wheel alignments. We recommend that a wheel alignment be carried out when renewing your tyres.
Once a year is normally the minimum advised by the automotive industry. If your car is running sluggishly, having your air filter checked for any blockages is also a smart option to stop your engine overworking.
Here, at Jim Chaillon's Auto Service, we use a long-life engine coolant, which has a specified service interval of four years/250,000km. It is recommended your cooling system be flushed and coolant renewed when your cooling system requires repairs as different coolants should never be mixed.
It is recommended that brake fluid is changed every two years.
This varies depending on driving conditions, but our qualified staff recommends approximately every 30,000km to 40,000km.
