To keep your car running smoothly, you need to perform several regular maintenance checks. Part of these checks includes fluid services like replacements and exchanges. All of the fluids used in your car will constantly move around their compartments so your car can keep doing its job. This will cause these liquids to deplete and/or change chemically. This is why you need to make sure that you are bringing your car into the shop regularly – so we can perform these fluid services. So what kind of fluid services can you expect to need?
Air Conditioner Evacuation and Recharge
It can be a hot and uncomfortable ride in a vehicle without air conditioning. A properly functioning air conditioner keeps you and everyone else in the vehicle cool and comfortable to your destination. Your air conditioner will continually cycle air in and out of its compressor, condenser, and evaporator. But if you notice that your vehicle is no longer keeping the interior cool, it’s time to get your air condition evacuated and recharged.
Brake Fluid Exchange
Brake fluid is an essential component of the braking system, as it is utilized to transmit force under pressure to provide the braking force required to bring your car to a stop. When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, hydraulic fluid goes to each brake, slowing your vehicle. Moisture and other pollutants can cause the fluid to degrade over time, lowering the performance of your brake system.
Differential Fluid Exchange
Differentials are used in conjunction with your transmission to transfer power from your engine to the axle that turns your wheels. Both front and rear differentials are standard on most four-wheel-drive vehicles. Inside the differential, lubricating fluid distributes heat away from the gears, extending the life and performance of your differential. Operating temperatures and wear, on the other hand, can cause the fluid to degrade with time. Performance and longevity may be harmed if the fluid breaks down or becomes polluted.
This is THE most common fluid services that you will need to perform – all you have to do is pull into the garage and we top your fluids off with whatever your car needs. This needs to be done often so your car does not run out of its essential fluids.
Fuel System Cleaning
You control how much fuel and air the engine takes in every time you hit the gas pedal. Deposits in important sections of the fuel system can form over time, resulting in decreased performance and other drivability difficulties.
Radiator Coolant Exchange
A well-working engine cooling system circulates coolant through the engine and radiator, reducing heat, lubricating the water pump, and preventing corrosion. Your vehicle’s cooling system is even used to heat the passenger compartment. When your vehicle’s cooling system fails, the temperature of your engine might rise to dangerous levels, posing a risk of damage.
Transfer Case Exchange
The transfer case is a gearbox that delivers driving power from the engine to the front axles in four-wheel drive and certain all-wheel-drive vehicles. The transfer case’s lubricating fluid pulls heat away from the gears, extending their life and improving performance.
Transmission Fluid Exchange
Transmission fluid lubricates, cools, and cleans the transmission’s interior components. It also aids in maintaining the hydraulic pressure required for proper transmission operation.
