Get to Know Your Service and Maintenance IntervalsApr 26th, 2023
At McPhillips Toyota, we know that being a safe and confident driver goes beyond just having a license. Understanding your vehicle and its maintenance needs is just as important. Whether you’re a new driver or just refreshing your knowledge, here are some key facts about your vehicle’s maintenance and parts.
FOLLOW YOUR REGULAR SERVICE INTERVALS FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
Our Toyota University Trained Technicians recommend having your vehicle serviced every 6 months or 8,000 km, whichever comes first. During the winter months, road debris like salt and sand can build up on your vehicle, causing premature wear and reduced performance. By sticking to your maintenance schedule, our experts can properly clean and care for your vehicle to ensure optimal performance.

EXPERT MAINTENANCE FOR YOUR ENGINE
Your vehicle’s fuel and combustion engine systems can be impacted by factors like gas quality, seasonal weather changes, and driving habits, affecting fuel efficiency and performance. To keep your engine running at its best, our Toyota Technicians recommend performing a Toyota Combustion and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) System Cleaning service every 80,000 KM. This service removes contaminants and deposits in the combustion chambers and on intake and exhaust valves within your engine, restoring your engine’s performance.
FLUIDS REQUIRE REGULAR INSPECTIONS AND REFILLS
Your vehicle relies on carefully engineered fluids and lubricants to keep its thousands of connected moving parts working smoothly. Our Toyota University Trained Technicians will inspect and top up fluids like coolant (which protects your engine and cooling system from corrosion and rust formation), transmission fluid (lubricates and cools transmissions to help safeguard them from the wear and tear of daily use), and brake fluid during your regular maintenance appointment, using only Toyota Genuine Parts.
DRIVE ON THE RIGHT TIRES FOR THE SEASON
Winter and all-season tires have different treads and rubber compounds to provide better traction in different weather conditions. It’s important to drive on the correct tires for the season to maintain safety and longevity. Our McPhillips Toyota Technicians can help with tire maintenance, including rotation, alignment, and inflation, and can help you find the right tires for your vehicle from 16 of Canada’s top all-season tire brands:
MAINTAIN YOUR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
Your air conditioning system can become congested with pollutants and odour-causing contaminants over time. Our Air Conditioning (A/C) Refresher service includes a thorough inspection of your A/C system, including your Toyota Genuine Cabin Air Filter. If your filter is clogged, our Technicians will change it for you. They will also perform a two-part process to ensure clean air flows smoothly into your vehicle cabin.
BE PROACTIVE WITH YOUR VEHICLE PARTS
To maintain the quality and longevity of your Toyota, it’s important to stay on top of service and resolve issues quickly. Our Toyota University Trained Technicians and Toyota Genuine Parts are here to help ensure your Toyota stands the test of time.
