We service any kind of vehicle air conditioing system. Whether the the AC is not working or needs a tune up, bring your vehicle in and we'll do it. If you have an older car, the refrigerant used is likely freon or R-12. However, R-12, is partially responsible for depletion of the ozone layer. The refrigerant is no longer manufactured and its use is strictly controlled. If you have a failure with your air conditioning system, you will likely require a conversion kit to modify the type of coolant used.
In addition to being able to diagnose and fix any engine or vehicle problem you may have, our list of services and explainations may help you better understand our service.
Have a look and call us should you have any questions.
In order for your vehicle to work at it's peak performance, it needs regular tune-ups. While on older vehicles we are checking the plugs, filters and fluid levels, on newer vehicles we are also checking the computer system of the vehicle. Today's engines work better in part because of the computer-controlled electronics in your engine compartment. At Siders we have all the necessary equipment to diagnose any problem or potential problem the car may have related to the it's computer control system
Over time motor oil loses some of its viscosity (its ability to flow). It is recommended that you change the oil in your car every 5,000 kilometres. Just call us at Sider Automotive. We can change your oil and set up a schedule for you to regularly have your oil changed with the seasons, or each month depending on how often you drive your vehicle
Did you know that the main cause of failed mufflers is simply a broken clamp? If a clamp is loose this can cause a chain reaction through the whole exhaust system and cause unnecesary cracks or ware. Bring your vehicle in for an exhaust inspection and we'll make sure its all tight and in working order. Should you need a new exhaust system, we can replace exhaust systems on any vehicle.
Brake failure is nearly always preventable. If you suspect your brakes need to be looked at bring your vehicle over to Siders, we'll do a full inspection on the entire brake system. Checking your brake system regularly will often save you in the long run and prevent bigger costs.
If you suspect that your suspention might be starting to wear out, bring you vehicle by and we'll do a full inspection on the suspension system.
