There are many fluids that your vehicle uses to help keep it running properly. Over time these fluids break down and lose the ability to do their job properly. Replacing the fluids and flushing the contaminants out of the system is a very important part of preventative maintenance. Below are some of the fluid services that we perform. Always check your owners manual, or with one of our Certified Technicians to learn when these services are recommended for your specific vehicle.
RADIATOR COOLANT FLUSH: The coolant (antifreeze) is an integral part of your engine. Not only does it keep the engine running cool, but it also is where the interior of your vehicle gets its heat in the winter. We use state-of-the-art equipment to completely flush all components that the coolant flows through. These include the radiator, water jackets (small ports throughout the engine that the coolant runs through to keep the engine running at optimum temperature) and the heater core; which helps control the heat in the cabin of your vehicle. After flushing the system, new coolant is added. This service is typically performed every 30,000 miles.
TRANSMISSION FLUSH: The transmission is what connects the engine to the drive train and wheels to move the vehicle. Much like the engine oil, transmission fluid acts as a lubricant to protect the moving parts inside the transmission. Over time the transmission fluid deteriorates and loses it's ability to lubricate. Flushing the transmission includes running cleaners through the transmission to remove contaminates and replace the fluid with fresh clean transmission fluid.
BRAKE FLUID FLUSH: Vehicle brakes use a hydraulic system. Stepping on the brake pedal forces brake fluid through a series of lines and hoses and forces the brake pads or brake shoes out to stop the vehicle. If the brake fluid becomes contaminated it can cause corrosion in the system and damage the components. Brake lines can corrode enough to cause fluid leaks and loss of braking power. Flushing the system and replacing the fluid is essential to maintain a good braking system.
