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

I had a flat tire and also a ruined wheel. I texted them, got everything sorted out and was given an accurate and fair quote immediately after a few quick and painless questions (thank you Andrew!) the boys at the front are swell guys, and I paid a low low rate for parts and labour, it was not bad at all. Nothing extra was pushed on me either and they fixed my wheels in what felt like less than 20 minutes. Go with these guys if you got tire problems or whatever else they can do for you, they’re top notch. Highly recommended.
The business is huge, very professional people and they follow guidelines indeed I can see. The best thing is that you can watch your car on camera while they work on it so I felt comfortable all the time. My rim is very sensetive and it came out without any scratch. I patched my tire today. They are the cheapest among all other tire shops. Thank you Adam for letting me know about the touchless machine and for management. I will recommend this place to anyone who needs tire job on his wheels.
Guys at the front desk are amazing. Huge store with lots of knowledgeable and professional staff. Highly recommend.
