Our strangest repair and/or diagnoses:
A squirrel that ate the wiring harness 3 times!!! He didn’t want to leave his house and someone kept putting wires in the way. When customer parked his vehicle outside and not in the garage that finally deterred the squirrel…wasn’t as warm and cosy as before.

It’s been a great year! Happy New Year! Safe and Happy Driving for 2015!

We are closed Monday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 1st.

Hello Everyone, we can say spring has finally sprung, we have green trees and blooming flowers.  It’s been a long winter and we are glad we can finally feel the warmth of the sun.

With Summer Solstice fast approaching we are fortunate we are a small family run business and can make decisions quickly.  We appreciate the hard work our staff does on the daily basis and are happy when we can give them some extra family time.

We have decided to get a long weekend out of our Canada Day celebration and will be closed from Friday June 27th at 5 pm to Wednesday, July 2nd at 7:30 am.

Our regular hours are Monday to Friday 7:30 am to 5 pm.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy Summer and Happy Canada Day!

Spring has Sprung

See we have proof, the Tulips are out to greet you at AE Auto Plus in Thornhill.  Whether you live in Richmond Hill, North York, Markham or Thornhill, it’s time to greet Spring.  This is the best part of automotive repair…taking off those winter tires and putting on those Summer Tires.  Yes a proper 4 wheel alignment is a good idea with the incredible winter we have had.  And remember, we can store your winter tires so you don’t have to lug them in and out and in some cases bring us the wrong ones.  Our tire storage is indoor climate controlled and all tires are properly catalogued.

Cooling System Service

Cooling Service

Problem: 
Coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients and becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in cooling system components. By-products of corrosion damage, as well as rust and scale, clog the passageways that conduct the water through the radiator and choke off the flow. This may result in an overheated engine that may be damaged beyond repair.

Solution:
The entire cooling system is first cleaned and then all debris and worn out coolant is completely removed from the system. Then, fresh new premium coolant is added. Conditioners are also included to prevent rust and corrosion and BG Universal Cooling System Sealer is also included to prevent leaks.

Diesel Injection Service

Diesel Injection Service

Problem: 
Deposits accumulate in the entire diesel fuel system, including the fuel lines, injector pump, fuel injectors and combustion chambers. This causes rough idle, vibration at idle, loss of power, decreased mileage, increased smoke, slowed throttle response.

Solution:
Clean the diesel injection system with a chemical designed to remove deposits. You’ll experience improved throttle response, fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Let’s help these kids win! Vote Everyday….they get to go Squamish, BC camping!

Hello Everyone, this is a plea from a proud parent, my oldest son, Grade 8 class has put together a 1 min claymation video on a nature and history in Ontario.  it’s part of a national contest…for the first part of the contest, they need votes everyday from people like you.  I have personally watched some of the other videos and you know what….ours is very good, I’m very proud of his class.  Please help them make it one step closer to getting a trip to Squamish, BC for some wonderful outdoor time.

Premier Oil Change Service

Premier Oil Change Service

Problem: 
Deposits form in the oil and fuel injectors and combustion chambers over time.

Solution: 
Eliminate the build-up of fuel and oil deposits between oil changes by installing:
• BG MOA®, a premium engine oil additive with deposit inhibitors
• BG CF5™ maintains a clean fuel system by eliminating deposit build-up

 

Performance Oil Change Service

Problem:
High engine temperatures caused by heavy stop and go driving conditions lead to thermal breakdown of engine oil. Not all of the oil is removed during a drain and fill oil change. Deposits are left behind and form sludge and varnish in the engine resulting in smoke from the exhaust and increased oil usage.

Solution:
A BG 9800 tool safely and effectively cleans and removes oxidized particles and fluid contamination left behind from previous oil changes. Install new oil and filter along with BG MOA® to fortify new oil for optimum performance and engine protection. The result will be improved engine compression, increased power and increased fuel economy.

Fuel/Air Induction Service

Problem: 
Deposits accumulate on intake valves, injectors, ports, fuel injectors and combustion chambers causing loss of power, rough idle, hesitation, misfire, pinging, knocking, mileage and hard starting.

Solution: 
• Clean fuel injectors
• Clean throttle body
• Clean plenum and air-intake
• Clean intake valves and ports
• Remove combustion chamber deposits
• Correct balance of fuel and air in system

Result:
• Reduced emissions
• Restored horsepower
• Increased fuel economy
• Starts and idles smooth and runs quieter

 

EGR Service

Problem:
The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve is clogged causing loss of power. If neglected a costly repair bill is imminent.

Solution:
Remove EGR valve and attach a specialized tool at the EGR port, where a carbon-attacking chemical eliminates carbon build-up.

Climate Control Service

Climate Control Service

Problem: 
Condensation in your vehicle’s air conditioning system promotes fungus, mold and bacterial growth that is blown into the passenger compartment. Add to this nauseating smell the sound of an A/C compressor making a clacking sound due to a depletion of oil.

Solution: 
Clean out the air conditioning lines, evaporator and ventilator and then kill any bacteria mold or fungi. Then, deodorize the entire A/C system and the vehicle’s interior. Finally, after a complete inspection for leaks and wear, our technicians will measure and replenish the oil in the compressor. The air inside your vehicle will be much cleaner and 4 to 5 degrees cooler, thanks to increased efficiency.
