Auto Repair, Inspection, and Maintenance

From auto repair, inspection to maintenance, we’ve got you covered. Our lincensed mechanics are able to inspect and repair your car and provide maintenance service according to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule. You will receive information about any available vehicle recall or technical service bulletin information.  Everything on your vehicle is going to wear out eventually.  The goal of a good preventative maintenance program is to service and or replace the wearable items before the effectiveness is diminished to a point that it will cause unnecessary damage to the vehicle’s main systems.  An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.
Anti-lock Brake System (A.B.S.) & Electronic Steering Control (E.S.C.)

It’s an important safety system in today’s modern vehicle.  When either of these lights flash or stay on while driving, it is an indication that something is potentially unsafe with your vehicle.  The dash light is telling you that something is reading outside the normal operation of the vehicle.  This could be a sensor or communication fault or it could be a warning that a physical part on your vehicle is not working properly.  At CTS Auto Services, we have the training and the equipment to properly diagnose and repair your A.B.S. issues.

Auto Glass Replacement

We have a great relationship with a local, experienced and reliable automotive glass company that will come to our shop and professionally replace any broken or cracked front or rear windshield.  In today’s vehicle the windshield is an important part of the vehicle strength and structure. We always recommend replacing any damaged window as soon as possible.  We have been diagnosing and repairing window regulators, door locks, power mirrors and door glass since they started putting power windows in cars.  With the industry trend to computerize every part of the automobile this has become a very complicated mix of electrical power, electronic communication. plastic and metal moving parts all put in an ever shrinking space inside the door skin.  We are constantly researching and learning how to efficiently diagnose and repair the issues and keep your gadgets working like new.

Battery & Alternator

The charging system is in the middle of an evolution with the introduction of multi-system computer controls, hybrids and fully electric vehicles (EVs). We are looking at 12, 32 to even 288 volt systems. We are consistently researching and discussing this major shift in the industry to better service your vehicles in the not so distant future.  We have the up to date testing equipment for the new batteries and charging systems and the staff training to properly diagnose and repair any issues.

Check Engine Light Diagnostics & Repair

We complete a careful examination alongside a PC investigation to discover the reason for the issue and maintain a strategic distance from pointless fixes. 

Cooling System

Your vehicle’s engine gets really hot.  The cooling system keeps the engine running at an optimum temperature to keep your engine functioning properly.  Coolant leaks, blockages and electrical issues can cause serious damage to your vehicle’s engine and usually leave you stranded on the roadside if not maintained.  We have the training and equipment to diagnose internal and external fluid leaks, electrical issues and coolant flow problems.  Our preventative maintenance services can keep you rolling down the road for years to come.

Drivetrain & Driveline

Strange feelings, vibrations and noises felt in your vehicle as you drive down the road are often defects in the driveline or drivetrain.  Diagnosing and curing these issues can be difficult and time consuming.  We have been trusted by many local service garages and dealerships to find and solve issues in difficult vehicles.  We have the patience and the problem solving skills to diagnose and repair your vehicle issues.

Electrical System

Today’s vehicles have more electrical systems and computer controlled circuits than NASA used to put man on the moon during the Apollo missions.  You now have miles of electrical wiring and systems in each car.  The breakdown of these systems is rapidly becoming the number one cause for vehicle repairs.  We are constantly updating equipment and training at CTS to keep up with the ever changing trends in our industry.  We can diagnose and repair your electrical issues.

Engine

The heart of the vehicle will always be the powertrain. Be it driven by gas, diesel, electric or hydrogen it will always have moving parts and things will always wear out.  Today’s engines are being made much better than they were just 15 years ago but they are also making them lighter and more compact.  We are still seeing the repairs to engine gaskets, water pumps, cylinder heads, timing belts, cooling systems and electrical controllers and sensors.  We have the training, information and tools to repair a vast majority of today’s vehicles and we continue to train and expand our knowledge and skill set.  A properly maintained vehicle is less likely to need an engine rebuild or replacement.

Exhaust System & Muffler

The days of custom exhaust systems is rapidly becoming history. The control systems in vehicle emissions are so finely tuned that any deviations in the factory exhaust design can have serious repercussions on vehicle drivability, fuel economy and power under the hood.  We understand what needs to be in place to keep your vehicle running at its best. We can source and install OEM quality or better exhaust systems and if we have a challenge we know who to call to get the answers to your unique requirements.

Fuel System

The fuel system of your vehicle consists of a storage tank, a fuel pump, delivery and return lines, fuel filter and a precise controller to deliver the proper amount of fuel to the intake when needed.  The controller takes input from multiple sensors and computers for safety, fuel economy and performance.  The Fuel System collects dirt and debris which clogs filters and builds up in the ports and chambers of the engine causing a lack of power and poor fuel economy.  Any electrical or physical defects in the system or from external input can keep the fuel from getting to the intake and cause a no start problem.  We are experienced in diagnosing and repairing many issues with today’s vehicles and consistently upgrade our training to tackle the future challenges in this area.

Inspections M.T.O. Safety Inspection

We are approved by the Ontario Government’s Ministry of Transportation to perform Safety Standards Certification Inspections for people who are buying and selling a vehicle in Ontario.

Steering & Suspension Diagnostic and Repair

No matter how advanced and computerized your vehicle becomes it will still need to have physical suspension and steering systems to transport you smoothly, safely and efficiently from place to place.  These systems are becoming more confusing and complicated with each new model. We continue to advance our training and diagnostic skills in this area to ensure the smoothest of safe rides for you and your family.

Transmission

All vehicles have some kind of transmission.  Standard or Automatic the transmission literally takes the force of the engine and transfers it through a series of gears or bands into a speed and torque to smoothly accelerate from standing still to highway speeds and back again.  A complicated sealed unit that has experienced some amazing advances in the last decade.  It is recommended that the fluid and for most vehicles the filter be replaced at regular service intervals.  When a proper and timely flushing service is performed the transmission should last for the life of the vehicle.  It is usually when dirt and debris is allowed to build up in old used up transmission fluid that we see transmission failure. We have the technology to perform a transmission fluid drain/flush/clean on most vehicles on the road today.  If your vehicle transmission has failed we have an excellent local transmission repair facility to refer your vehicle repairs too.

Tune-Up

A properly tuned engine delivers a balance of power and fuel economy while producing the lowest level of emissions.  Modern engines can compensate for worn parts to a degree, making you think that everything is fine with your car but it is a smoke screen.  By keeping your engine tuned you will restore your car to its normal operating state, and will contribute to the overall efficiency of the engine and emissions systems and prolong the life of the vehicle. Tune-Ups are a key element of your vehicles preventative maintenance program. We consistently suggest to our customers to have spark plugs, ignition wires and other wearable parts inspected well before the recommended OEM replacement.  By making sure parts are free from debris, not seized in place or wearing thin you are assisting in keeping the big ticket items from being damaged and leaving you or your loved ones stranded with a breakdown. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.  For every dollar spent on vehicle maintenance you are saving one hundred dollars in future vehicle repairs.

Why Is Vehicle Maintenance Important?

For every dollar spent on vehicle maintenance you are saving one hundred dollars in future vehicle repairs.  We have a comprehensive inspection for your vehicle where we will highlight wearing components and explain the benefits of replacing or servicing it before it is used up.  Serpentine and timing belts, heater and coolant hoses, filters, fluids, spark plugs, ignition wires, pulleys, tensioners, wiper blades, sensors, switches and controllers will all need to be replaced over the life time of the vehicle.  Systems cleaning and flushing free up areas of restriction and renew quality of flow to vital systems of your vehicle making it run better and longer than when left alone.
