BRAKE FLUID FLUSH
Why do I need a Brake Fluid Service?
This two stage service consists of 1) Vacuum Flush to remove contaminated fluid 2) Brake bleed assures fluid is free of moisture and air.
Did you know?
Brake fluid naturally absorbs moisture and that moisture is a leading cause in brake failures. Additional moisture will reduce the boiling point and may cause your brakes to become sluggish or non-responsive.
Most manufacturers recommend changing your brake fluid about every 30,000 miles — approximately every two years. DON’T OPEN THE BRAKE FLUID CAP! Introduction of dirt and additional moisture can happen easily if you are not careful. The reservoir should be transparent so you can see how dirty the fluid is just by looking. But fluid color is not the only indicator and you may not be able to visibly see corrupted fluid.
Some of the benefits of a fluid flush include:
- Extends life of the Brake System
- Better stopping power
- Better power braking
- Decreases braking distance
- Reduces system wear an corrosion
Transmission Flush Service
A transmission service is designed to clean the complete inside surface of the transmission. Your transmission gets assaulted by sludge, contaminating grime and varnish that get washed away along with your dirty old fluid. Transmission fluid and conditioner is then added to factory specified levels to protect your transmission into the future.
Why Would I Need This?
The average transmission holds approximately 12 QTS of fluid. A STANDARD fluid replacement service only replaces 40 to 50% of the transmission fluid. Without a flush the remaining fluid is trapped in the torque converter and remains untouched in a drain and replace scenario. You want a complete fluid change, so adding in the flush solves this problem.
- reduces heat and wear caused by friction
- allows smoother shifting
- cleans dirty valves that might stick
- helps conditions seals and gaskets
You need to have your engine cooling system flushed occasionally to protect, de-scale and replace your coolant/anti-freeze. This is vital to maintaining quality engine cooling levels and protecting your vehicle from summer heat and winter cold. Over time and extreme temperature, your coolant begins to break down. It begins to leave deposits. If not maintained, the deposits can clog and restrict flow, may plug the radiator or heater core. An overheating event can destroy your engine, crack your head or block. These are expensive repairs that could be avoided with a simple preventative flush service.
