Your engine is literally the heart of your vehicle. As your engine is running, so are hundreds of other parts. Oil is used to lubricate these parts because tremendous heat is created through friction when your vehicle is running.
Without oil, these parts would become hot enough to melt. The engine heat slowly breaks down the oil. When the oil breaks down, it becomes less slippery and doesn't protect your engine as well. This is why your GM manufacturer has recommended time periods for the oil in your GM vehicle to be changed.
Tune Up Services
As your vehicle is made up of hundreds of different parts, over time, these parts will sometimes wear out and this will result in poor engine performance. Over time, you may have clogged fuel injectors, dirty fuel & air filters and spark plugs that aren't working efficiently. You may notice that it's time for a tune up by some of the following conditions:
- Decreasing gas mileage
- Loss in power
- Rough running engine
- Engine is making a knocking noise
- "Service Engine Soon" light is on
- Stalling when you stop
Do you want to be driving around during the summer, in a typically hot Alberta day without any Air Conditioning? Your GM Service Technician can re-charge your vehicle's A/C so that you are prepared for hot weather. Your Technician will also check for leaks, worn seals and o-rings and any loose connections or worn hoses.
Next to you engine, replacing your transmission can be one of the most expensive replacement costs you may have to make on your vehicle. The maintenance on your transmission is crucial to the life of your vehicle. Your vehicle uses transmission fluid to cool the moving parts in the transmission, exactly like your engine uses. Your vehicle needs to have clean, cool and lubricated fluid to keep it running at top performance levels.

Finding a Trustworthy Mechanic for Your Car
If you are new to an area, unfamiliar with car problems, or unused to fixing your own car problems, finding a mechanic that you can trust is important. Unfortunately, there are some mechanics that try and cheat unsuspecting car owners, and insist that their car needs unnecessary services. To find a trustworthy mechanic, try experimenting with a car service you are more familiar with, such as an oil change.
If you find car service in Lacombe that can perform simple tasks to your satisfaction, you can start trusting that mechanic with larger, more expensive car maintenance requests. It is important to find a mechanic that you can trust so that your car continues to run well. Regular car services should never be neglected, and you should not allow inexperience with cars to prevent you from getting the car service you need.
