Preventative Maintenance Services

The following services are recommended at the listed times or mileages. These recommendations are intended as preventative maintenance to extend the life of your car or light truck and help prevent unexpected breakdowns. They are based solely on time or mileage and not on visual or measurements unless specified. 

Power Steering Flush

When: Every 2 Years Or 24k Miles.
Why: Oxidation by-products, hose material and metallic debris accumulate in the fluid. As contaminated fluid is pumped through the system under very high pressure, it causes abrasive wear in the pump and the rack assembly, leading to premature wear, pump noise, and erratic steering.

Transmission Flush

When: Every 2 years or 24k miles.
Why: Oxidized fluid and oxidation residues can cause blockage of oil lines or filter screens. Deposits can also cause malfunction of delicate shift control mechanisms or even complete transmission failure.

Induction/Injector System Flush

When: Every 2 years or 30k miles.
Why: Deposits that build up in the fuel induction system may cause driveability problems such as hesitation, surge, stalling, hard starting, rough idle and loss of power. Deposits that build up in the air induction system may cause rough idle, excessive exhaust emissions, loss of performance and loss of gas mileage.
 

Coolant System Flush

When: Flush yearly
Why: When coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients it becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in coolant system components, as well as clogging passageways in the radiator which may overheat the engine and cause damage beyond repair.

Brake System

When: 2 Years Or 24k Miles
Why: Flushing the brake system helps to remove deposits, debris and other contaminates that travel in the brake system and tend to fall to the lowest point in the system. This helps prolong the life of calipers, wheel cylinders and the brake master cylinder.

Alignment

When: Should be checked for alignment every year, should be aligned minimum every 30k miles.
Why: Everyday road shock and general wear and tear can knock your alignment out of specifications. When that happens, control of the vehicle may be threatened and the tires may begin to wear unevenly and rapidly. Note: If your vehicle hits a severe bump or curb alignment should be checked.
