Oil Change

    There is nothing more important than changing your oil. Nothing, and I repeat, nothing will ruin an engine faster than not changing it. It is recommended by almost every vehicle manufacturer to have your oil changed every 3 months or 3000 miles. That's for standard driving. If you're harder on your engine you should have it changed more often.

    Along with oil changes, flushing other fluid is necessary at different intervals.

    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 only use the to completely flush all components that the coolant flows through. These include the radiator, water jackets (ports in the engine block to maintain proper running temperature), and the heater core; which maintains the temperature in the cabin of your vehicle when its cold. 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.
