Seasonal Maintenance

Rely on Alpine Tirecraft Victoria for a seasonal maintenance routine that will enhance the performance of your vehicle, prevent breakdowns and protect its value. Regular maintenance can also reduce your fuel expenditure and control pollution, and a seasonal check only takes around 30 minutes.

Alpine Tirecraft Victoria is legally authorized to meet your vehicle’s seasonal service requirements and we’re pleased to offer seasonal maintenance so you can bring your vehicle to us, instead of your dealership, if you’d prefer. We use only the appropriate parts and procedures, ensuring your vehicle manufacturer is obliged to honour its warranty commitments.

Summer and Winter Maintenance

The maintenance your vehicle requires in the spring to be ready for summer differs slightly to that required in the fall to be prepared for the winter. In the spring, your mechanic should be checking the following:

  • Tire Changeover –Winter tires should be replaced with summer or all season tires
  • Tire Rotation: Tires should be rotated to prevent wear and help prolong use
  • Coolant Levels:These should be topped up and ready for summer temperatures
  • Cabin Air Filter:Should be checked to ensure it is not full of dirt and grime that can reduce the efficacy of your heating and air conditioning systems
  • Five Vital Fluids: Brake system fluid, coolant system fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid and differential fluid should all be checked and topped up if necessary.
  • Brakesand Suspension: Brake pads should be inspected and replaced if necessary, and the suspension system parts should be checked for wear and replaced where required
  • Wheel Alignment:After driving over potholes, driving into snow banks and hitting the curb, alignment should be checked to meet the manufacturer’s specifications
  • Oil Change: Engine oil levels should be checked and topped up, with dirty oil being replaced
  • Windshield Wipers and Fluid:wipers should be inspected and replaced where necessary, and wiper fluid should be topped up if required

In the winter, your mechanic will check the same things as in the spring, in addition to:

  • Tire Tread Depth: Tread depth is important to keep your vehicle safely on the roads, particularly for winter tires
  • Battery: The battery should be in good enough condition to last the winter in the cold temperatures when it has to work harder

Do I need service?

Even if your vehicle appears to be running smoothly, unseen problems can lead to expensive repairs down the road. A recent survey by a group known as the Car Care Council found that:

  • 38% of cars had low or dirty engine oil
  • 54% had low tire pressure
  • 28% had inadequate engine cooling
  • 19% needed new belts
  • 16% had dirty air filters
  • 10% had low or contaminated brake fluid

A scheduled stop for maintenance will allow you to plan a day without your car. A breakdown will simply leave you stranded. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual can be an excellent source of information about required service intervals, but bear in mind that most Canadian vehicles need to comply with “severe” service schedules.

Did you know?

The average vehicle on the road today requires $800 in maintenance a year. Those five or more years old need an average of $1,000 in maintenance a year.
