Remember the hazy, lazy days of summer. Lying on the beach, cooling off in the water. Then walking back to the car, opening the door and being hit with the wall of super heated air. First thing is to start the car and put the air conditioning on full force.
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 freon used to a much less harmful R-134a. These conversions are reliable, and let you do your part to protect the environment.
The leading cause of traffic accidents is brake failure. WOW!
And brake failure is nearly always preventable. Stop worrying about potential failures and enjoy peace of mind. Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service is a brake specialist.
Come in for a brake inspection. We will check
- Pads and shoes for wear
- UDrums and rotors for wear
- Super features
- Wheel cylinders and calipers for leaks
- Hydraulic lines and hoses for leaks, kinks and blockages
- Fluid in the master cylinder for level and condition
- Road Test before and after repairs
Checking your brake system regularly will often save you in the long run. Replacing worn pads before they damage the disks or drums is a modest cost. If you wait until your car is sounding like a streetcar, you will likely have more extensive repairs and a higher cost.
If any work is necessary, we will give you a choice of parts. A better grade of materials (pads for example) may be one of the best bargains around. They will last longer and perform better then standard grades. You are in control. Both here at Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service and on the road when the need arises. That's what makes us Oakville's Break Specialist.

Did you know that the main cause of failed mufflers is simply a broken clamp? And that the cost of a clamp amounts to pocket change? If you're aware of this, chances are you already deal with us, because at Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service we believe an informed customer is a contented customer. We like to help take the mystery out of automotive repairs. Our clients really appreciate that. Besides, explaining about all of the "little extras" we provide is good for business.
For example, when you bring your car in for an oil change, our technicians always check the exhaust system. Just a "little wiggle here, and a little wiggle there" to make sure everything is firm and tight. You may not even be aware, and yet this simple precaution could save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs.
How? Because those "little wiggles" pre-test the clamps. If a clamp gives out while your vehicle is in operation, it could well lead to extensive exhaust system repairs. Repairs that were preventable! Like so many other things our technicians do, taking the time to check the clamps on your muffler and pipes can save you unnecessary expense.
This alone won't prevent exhaust failures. But if you do require an exhaust system, we can help with that as well. And our mufflers come with a Warranty, of course. But our mufflers also come with something extra. They come with a little wiggle, too!
Being part of a Muffler Chain, called True Center Muffler & Brake we have access to a warehouse, where we buy direct to get the best prices to pass the saving to our customers.
When you need any muffler / exhaust work, give us a call, we an give you the best price for 1st line product made by Goerlich Exhaust, the Company that has made the first muffler in 1920 and is still building this product. We also offer custom pipe bending.

Have you ever stopped to think how much contact your car actually has with the road? Your car (and YOU) stay on the road because of 4 hand-sized pieces of rubber compound. Let's keep your tires properly inflated and rotated. And let's replace your tires when the tread gets worn.
But there's more to it than that. Your tires can also be an early warning system for other problems.
Are they worn on only one side? An alignment will help to solve that problem and improve your car's fuel efficiency.
Does your car shake a certain speeds? It may need a wheel balance. A very slight difference in the weight from one half of your tire to the other can create a powerful vibration at high speeds.
Worn shocks can create other difficulties with your tires.
Here at Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service, we like to see your tires and know what to look for. We will adjust your air pressure and check your tire wear.Bring them in for a visit.
When you position yourself behind the steering wheel, turn the ignition key, shift the gear lever into "D" and press down on the accelerator pedal, you expect your car to move forward. If this is not happening, chances are it's a little late for preventative maintenance on your transmission.
The technicians at Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service take the maintenance of automatic and standard transmissions very seriously.
They know that regularly adjusting the bands and replacing the filter and fluid will ensure your transmission is cooperative when you ask it to propel your car forward, or to move it backward. And it won't wake your neighbours in the process. With our tender loving care, your transmission will operate smoothly, and quietly, too.
You yourself can help to keep your transmission happy. Here's some good driving tips to extend its life:
Don't shift from Drive or Reverse to Park while the car is moving. Always bring it to a stop, and then shift.
Check your fluid regularly. If you notice darkening in colour or if you see black specs in it, call us at (905) 842-6000. Let's check things out right away, before there's a big problem.
If you tow anything with your car, pay careful attention to the gears you're using. Generally, you will want to avoid Overdrive. Adding a transmission fluid cooler to maintain the correct temperature may also be advisable.
Most car manufacturers recommends to change transmission fluid and filter every 70.000 km. Most people forget. Here at Dennis' we will keep on top of it. Remember that transmission fluid & filter change costs approximately $120 - $150 for most cars. Transmission overhaul costs approximately $2.500 - $3.500
It makes sense to change your fluid every 70.000 km!
Call us today, and together we'll make sure your transmission continues to move you ahead.
Today's engines operate better, last longer and are more fuel-efficient than engines of 10 or 20 years ago. And in order to keep them working at their peak performance, they continue to need a regular tune-up. Today's tune-up is very different than one from 20 years ago. Yes, we still check the plugs, filters and fluid levels, but these days there is a very different aspect to a tune-up.
Today's engines work better in part because of the computer-controlled electronics in your engine compartment. These complex components are designed to talk directly the scopes and diagnostic equipment here at Dennis' of Oakville Auto Service. Our trained technicians can interpret the readings, spotting small difficulties before they become expensive problems. Their technical expertise will ensure that your fuel efficiency is optimized, that your car is running reliably and no problems are looming.
Never before has a tune-up been able to tell us so much about your car. Never has a tune-up been more necessary to automotive peace of mind. Phone us at (905) 842-6000 and have one of our skilled technicians schedule a tune-up appointment for you!
Or if you need any tune-up or electrical diagnostic work done, we are also a Drive Clean test & repair diagnostic center, as part of our Oakville auto repairs services.
