FLuid Flushes & Services

 

Changing the fluids on your vehicle leads to vehicle longevity and better performance. Fluids used in the oiling, coolant, brake, and power steering systems break down over time and lose their lubrication properties. When that occurs, you get metal on metal, which leads to high temperatures and ultimate failure. Sometimes just a drain and fill is sufficient. But with brake systems, power bleeders and automated flushing devices allow us to improve efficiency, ensure accurate bleeding, and consequently, this reduces wait times and costs for customers. Not sure when to bring your car in for these services? Be sure to contact our service department.

TRansmission Service

 

Many OEMs claim “lifetime fluid” for your automatic transmission. But what do they consider the lifetime to be? 100k? That’s unacceptable. Your automatic transmission has a filter and fluid, and over time the filter gets clogged, and the fluid breaks down. Change your fluid and filter regularly and extend the lifetime of your transmission as a few hundred dollar service every 30-50k is significantly less than a new transmission every 100k.

TIming Belts & Tensioners

 

What is a timing belt, and why is it so crucial to proper engine operation? This belt maintains synchronization and control of the timing components, i.e., the crank, cam(s), and the valvetrain. So why does your timing belt need to be replaced? The timing belt is a rubber product and resides in a sensitive environment where it experiences extreme heat cycles. The intense heat cycles and constant tension place a lot of stress on the belt, causing it to dry out, stretch, crack, or snap. If this happens, it can be catastrophic and cause complete engine failure. We highly recommend that you follow the factory recommended maintenance intervals and be proactive about preventative maintenance. If you wait too long, you may wind up in a bad situation with an even bigger problem.
