Our auto maintenance and repair specialists will custom design a preventive maintenance plan for you and your vehicle, we’ll put together proactive timely maintenance schedules that consider the age of your vehicle, your driving habits and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

At Pop’s the team takes deliberate steps to properly diagnose your vehicle’s problem using state of the art testing equipment diagnostics systems, finding the true cause, and repairing it right the first time, rather than throwing parts at it hoping to solve the problem.

Electronic Repairs and Programming

Cars today have advanced electronic systems. Testing, programming and repairs electronic modules of these complex units requires the latest equipment available. Our systems are updated regularly and there is no fault too big or too small that we cannot correctly diagnose.

Vehicle Safety and Check-up Reporting and Inspections

When we perform Pop’s vehicle safety and check-up inspections, which are included FREE WITH EVERY SERVICE. We check suspension components, steering components, brakes, tyres, fluids, lights, and much more. Unlike some shops that might try to find things to sell you, you can trust us to tell you the truth. If we notice something that needs attention, we’ll tell you. It’s our obligation and responsibility, and it’s your right to know.

Brakes & Brake Pads

Brakes are designed to slowly wear as you use them. That’s why regular checking and maintenance of your brake system is vital. Just because your brakes are stopping your vehicle doesn’t mean they’re working their best. Visit Pop’s for service while you wait and we’ll make sure to keep your vehicle stopping properly. As with all our work quality is our focus and we only use the highest quality brake components products and premium brake fluid (More about brakes and fluid).

Radiator and Cooling System

At Pops our trained auto service technicians will inspect your cooling system and replace any damaged or worn components. This will keep your engine protected and will provide you with peace of mind. We check hoses for damage and leaks, monitor engine operating temperatures.

Belts and Hoses

Worn and damaged belts and hoses are one of the most common causes of vehicle breakdowns. Pop’s service technicians will inspect belts for wear and cracks, check hoses for leaks and cracks and test for correct belt tension.

Fuel Injection Cleaning, Service and Repairs

Just like your engine occasionally needs cleaning, so do your fuel injectors. Although modern gasoline contains cleaning additives, combustion can still be a dirty process, leading to carbon buildup and other by-products. Your motor oil helps wash some of these deposits away, but it’s not always enough.
