The Most Important Maintenance for Your Vehicle
You’ve heard it a million times, but it bears repeating. Getting your oil changed regularly is perhaps the most important maintenance service you can have performed on your car and The Tire Terminal in Mississauga, ON is willing to risk boring you with repetition to make sure you don’t neglect the lifeblood of your engine.
Your Vehicle Needs Regular Oil Changes
If you were to drain all the oil from your engine it would turn into a useless lump of steel and aluminum in just a few minutes. But low or worn out oil in your engine is also a dangerous way to fly, causing incremental internal wear that will eventually become catastrophic internal engine damage while killing fuel mileage and reducing horsepower along the way. By the time symptoms of neglect show up under the hood, it’s too late and you will be shelling out the big bucks.
The Good News
It is that an oil change done properly is quick, inexpensive and can help your engine run worry-free for hundreds of thousands of miles.
The Proper Service Interval for Every Vehicle is Different
Check your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation. If you don’t have that information, The Tire Terminal will gladly reference it for you. Although many automakers have stretched oil change intervals to as many as 12,000km, you should know that summer heat, stop and go driving, and weekend track days can significantly reduce the life of the oil and necessitate more frequent oil changes. Pulling your dipstick to check the level and condition of the oil is key.
If you don't know if you are ready for an oil change service, check for these signs
- Oil Service message on your dash display
- Oil is dirty, black or smells burned
- Your check engine light is lit
- Knocking, pinging, rattling or other engine noises
- It’s been more than six months since your last oil service
- Your oil level is lower than the bottom mark on the dipstick

Took some tires to here to get mounted and balanced. They had to take off old tires from rims and put new tires on to those rims and install onto my vehicle which they did for an exceptionally low price of 20$/tire…can’t beat that! It took them a little longer than they estimated but other than that I was very pleased with the service and highly recommend this place for tire service.
Guys at the front desk are amazing. Huge store with lots of knowledgeable and professional staff. Highly recommend.
Best service you can get in GTA. Reasonable prices and great selections of rims and tires. I bought a set of winter tires. After a little while I found out that one of them has a manufacturing defect. Came on Saturday and got it replaced on Monday morning. No questions asked.
