Timing Belt (when applicable)

Why replace my timing belt? Belts break all the time! Well, your timing belt is a toothed rubber belt that keeps the camshaft and crankshafts in perfect time with one another. If your timing belt breaks, it causes the cams to stop abruptly, however the pistons continue to move up and down. If any of the valves are in the down position, your piston could hit it resulting in bent valves or at worst could potentially knock a hole in the piston. This will cause your engine quit. Vehicles with timing belts usually require replacement at 100,000 kms. You should follow your manufacturers guide to avoid expensive damages to your vehicles engine.

Transmission Service (Fluid, Filter)

Transmission repair is one of the most expensive automobile repairs, and can usually be avoided by taking your car in for regular transmission maintenance servicing.
