  • Check Engine Light Diagnosis

    Check Engine Light Diagnosis

    Thanks to modern OBDII standards, check engine lights usually make auto repair pretty painless. Nevertheless, deciphering a check engine light isn't as easy as it sounds. Many check engine light codes can be caused by a wide array of underlying issues. If you're not an automotive repair veteran, it's best to leave check engine light troubleshooting to the professionals. The staff at Canal Marine can make short work of any check engine light. We'll sort out your check engine light without a lot of fuss.


  • Oil Change Service

    Oil Change Service

    A run-of-the-mill oil change is the surest way to keep a vehicle running well. At Canal Marine, we're experts when it comes to oil change excellence. While an oil change might seem simple, you'll need the right filters and 5W-30 to guarantee results. We treat every oil change as a matter of engine life or death. That's why our oil change service is relied on by so many Haines residents. For the best oil change service around, Canal Marine is the shop to call.


  • Suspension Repair

    Suspension Repair

    You can't trust your vehicle to drive well if the suspension system is shot. Common suspension components like shocks, struts and sway bar links fail all the time without warning. A vehicle's suspension system doesn't just guarantee a comfortable ride. The truth is that a healthy suspension system reduces the odds of nasty accidents on the open road. Fortunately, a sub-par suspension system is pretty easy to spot for a trained mechanic. Canal Marine can get your suspension system back in tip-top shape quickly for a reasonable price.


  • Tire Balancing

    Tire Balancing

    Tire balancing is incredibly important for a variety of reasons. Firstly, tire balancing ensures that your vehicle handles properly. Secondly, proper tire balancing will reduce vibration and noise while driving. Tire balancing is one job that most DIY auto repair enthusiasts can't do by themselves. The technicians at Canal Marine take the time to perform superior tire balancing on every vehicle they service. Our tire balancing service will keep your Haines car or truck in great shape for years to come.
