Tune-Up & Oil Change Service

We perform tune-ups and oil changes on North American, Japanese, and European Import Cars, including BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Volkswagen.

Vehicle-maintenance guidelines recommend scheduling regular oil changes for optimal performance of your vehicle. These should be performed about twice a year or every 5000 km. During each oil change, we will also let you know if the oil filter requires replacement.

Over the years, vehicle tune-ups have changed with new technology. For example, on older vehicles we used to change the Spark plugs, Ignition Wires, Distributor Cap, Air Filter, and Fuel Filter. However, most vehicles today are equipped with individual Coils, eliminating Distributors and Ignition wires. If you are experiencing any Misfires and/or your Check Engine Light (CEL) is on it could be something as simple as a coil malfunction.

At Capital Transmission, we are committed to meeting all of your tune-up and oil change needs, offering the most effective solutions at a fair price.
