Brake Fluid Flush
 
We determine whether your vehicle needs a brake fluid flush based on the Parts per Million of Copper found in your fluid. Between 0 and 100 – no need for a brake fluid flush. Between 100 – 200 ppm – highly recommended. Over 200 ppm – needed ASAP. The brake fluid will not eat through the brake lines, however it can damage the Anti-Lock Brake Sensor (ABS) which can be very costly to replace. We recommend brake fluid flushes every 30,000 miles or when the strip indicates the copper content is high – whichever comes first. We check your brake fluid every oil change.
 
Coolant Flush
 
We determine whether your vehicle needs a coolant flush based on a strip that indicates where the pH, freeze-point, anti-corrosion levels are. If the pH is too high or too low, the coolant is not performing optimally. If the freeze-point is too high, there is not enough coolant and the engine is susceptible to damage. If the anti-corrosion level is not properly set, the coolant can eat away at gaskets and cause damage. We recommend coolant flushes every 2 years, 50,000 miles or if the strip indicates a problem. We check your coolant every oil change.
 
Power Steering Flush
 
We determine whether your vehicle needs a power steering fluid flush based on the color of the fluid. If it is dark and dirty we recommend you have it flushed because it can damage the power steering pump and other power steering components. We recommend power steering fluid flushes every 30,000 miles or if the color indicates. We check your power steering fluid every oil change.
 
Transmission Flush
 
We determine whether your vehicle needs a transmission fluid flush based on the color of the fluid. If it is dark and dirty we recommend you have it flushed because it can damage the transmission. We recommend transmission fluid flushes every 30,000 miles or if the color indicates. We check your transmission fluid every oil change.
 
Transfer Case and Differentials
 
We determine whether your vehicle needs a transfer case or differential service based on the color of the fluid. If it is dark and dirty we recommend you have it serviced because of the damage it can render. We recommend servicing these components every 30,000 miles or if the color indicates. We check your transmission fluid every oil change.
