Fluid services are very important in today’s cars to keep them on the road longer, keep them from breaking down more frequently and saves you money in the long run. Each car manufacturer recommends that fluid services are done at certain mileages. This is important to keep your car from breaking as frequently. A great mechanic knows how important it is to keep up your maintenance. Just like doing an Oil Change keeps your engine from breaking down, Coolant Flushes, Transmission/ Transaxle Flushes, Brake Fluid Flushes, Power Steering Flushes, and Differential Flushes keep the rest of your car from breaking down as well.
Antifreeze/Coolant Fluid Service
This is necessary to keep your engine from freezing on a below freezing day. This is also necessary since over time coolant gets gummy and can actually clog up your radiator and heater. Fresh coolant also keeps the metals from rusting and your water pump lubricated. This will overall help prolong all of the cooling system parts.
Brake Fluid Service
Over time the brake system actually cooks the Brake Fluid. This ruins the hydraulic properties of the fluid and causes major Brake components to fail quicker. Some of the brake components cost over $1000 on some cars. Just keeping the brake fluid flushed can reduce the cost of brake repairs over time and keep you stopping safer.
Oil Change Service
When we do an oil change/ oil service, we check out the rest of your car at the same time. We will let you know if any other repairs or services are needed because we want our customer’s to have perfect running cars that are safe to drive. We also check what the manufacturer suggests at the appropriate mileage. Sometimes customers need brakes or a timing belt and they had no idea they did. I am sure that over the years, we have saved some of our customer’s lots of money by not having things fail unexpectedly..
Power Steering Fluid Service
Vehicles with power steering should always keep the system flushed. The power steering fluid over time will start wearing out the parts if not maintained. We have equipment that will ensure the contaminants are removed and your power steering system will have a better chance of not breaking.
Rear & Front Differential Fluid Service
All vehicles with a differential need to keep the fluids flushed or serviced as recommended. Bearings, gears, seals, clutches all need fresh lubricant or they will start eating themselves and other parts. Over time it is beneficial to keep these fluids changed.
Transfer Case Fluid Service
All 4X4 or AWD vehicles with a transfer case need to keep the fluids flushed or serviced as recommended. Bearings, gears, seals, clutches all need fresh lubricant or they will start eating themselves and other parts. 4X4 and AWD systems can be expensive to repair so they must be maintained even if you don’t engage the systems.
Transmission/ Transaxle Fluid Service
Transmissions are very expensive to repair in most cases and can usually be prevented just by maintaining the fluid. As all of the other listed systems, a transmission cooks fluid and gets as hot as the engine while driving. Keeping the filter changed helps, but flushing the transmission helps more because it replaces all of your transmission/ transaxle’s fluid instead of a portion that drains while changing the filter.
Please note that there is a minimum $59.17 (plus ss & tx) vehicle diagnosis charge for vehicles that do not complete repairs with our facility.
Thank you for your understanding.
