Fluid Change Services
Transmission fluid is subject to breakdown due to increased friction, intense heat, and the introduction of contaminants. Eventually, the transmission fluid loses its ability to lubricate, cool, clean and flow freely.
Brake fluid attracts moisture which will cause corrosion in the system over time and deterioration in the hydraulic parts. Changing the brake fluid at regular intervals will reduce the risk associated with corrosion.
Your vehicle’s radiator is the heart of its cooling system. To function properly, your radiator must be clean, free of leaks, clear of blockages and filled with the proper coolant.
Even under normal driving conditions your power steering fluid can suffer from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. Sludge and varnish deposits build up in your power steering system and prevent the easy turning and responsive handling you expect.
Scheduled Maintenance or Preventative Maintenance
Scheduled Maintenance, or preventative maintenance, is the regular schedule of services that vehicles manufacturers prescribe to keep a car running well and safely. Maintenance schedules vary by vehicle, driving style, and driving conditions.
Determine what your expectations and priorities are to make the most informed decisions about your car’s maintenance schedule. A mother of small children may make decisions based on safety. A person commuting to work may be concerned about fuel economy. A student might make maintenance decisions based on cash flow—or lack thereof. Each of us has different priorities and circumstances.
As sensible car owners, we all must assume responsibility for doing the basics. Periodically checking tire pressure, engine oil, and coolant levels can dramatically increase the life of your car and potentially save you thousands of dollars in repairs down the road. And not only does a well-maintained car last longer and save money in the long run, but it’s also much safer for both you and your passengers.
