Brake Fluid Flush
Why should I flush my brake fluid?
Most manufacturers recommend changing brake fluid every two years. Brake fluid absorbs moisture out of the air and it can become saturated with water. The water overtime will cause damage to the brake components. This is particularly important with anti lock brakes and the expensive brake components involved.
Why should I flush my cooling system.
The coolant in your engine not only provides antifreeze protection but also maintains boiling point and inhibits corrosion. Over time it's properties change and the chemicals begin to attack the aluminum engine parts and gaskets.
To keep your engine cool and prevent costly cooling system repairs we highly recommend that your coolant be changed every 3 years or according to the manufacturers recommendation.
Do you do oil changes?
Yes we do! All oil changes are full service. We replace oil with Valvoline oil in the recommended grade (usually 5W30), replace the oil filter, and lube the door hinges and locks. We top off all fluids, check tire pressure, and inspect vehicles mechanical condition. Please call to make an appointment as it usually takes around 40 minutes.
Do you maintain a service record for any services performed on my auto?
Yes, we maintain service records on your auto.
