Oil keeps your engine lubricated and reduces heat. Your oil filter helps prevent engine damage by removing contaminants that build up in the oil. Carbon, dirt and debris become suspended in the oil and cause it to lose effectiveness, which leads to increased engine wear and decreased fuel economy. Regular oil and filter changes keep your engine clean and lubricated.
Transmission fluid (Automatic/ Manual)
Your transmission transfers energy from the engine to the wheels to get your vehicle moving. Transmission fluid lubricates, cools, and cleans the inside of the transmission while maintaining the necessary pressure inside the transmission, required for it to function properly. Whether your transmission is automatic or manual the transmission fluid will eventually break down. If it isn’t replaced components inside can overheat which will cause transmission failure.
Engine (Radiator) coolant
Engine coolant, or anti-freeze as it’s commonly known, ensures your engine doesn’t freeze or overheat. Coolant works by removing heat from the engine block, protecting the engine and lubricating the water pump seals. Over time coolant loses its ability to protect vital engine parts.
The differential works with the transmission to deliver power from the engine to the axle to rotate the wheels. Like engine oil, heat causes wear on differential fluid, which can lead to excessive wear on the gears and bearings.
Transfer case fluid (4-wheel and all-wheel only)
The transfer case is the heart of a vehicle’s 4-wheel or all-wheel drive system. It provides power to both the front and rear differential assemblies, which turn your wheels. It also allows you to switch between gears, such as 4High and 4Low. Like engine oil, the fluid that lubricates the transfer case will begin to break down over time and lead to excessive wear on bearings and gears
Anything involving your brakes is extremely important to your safety. Maintaining proper brake fluid levels in your master cylinder reservoir is absolutely critical. Have your brake fluid checked a the same time your car receives an oil change. Brake fluid delivers the ability for your brakes to stop your vehicle. During every brake inspection, we will check your brake fluid levels. We will also carefully inspect your shoes or pads, drums, rotors, wheel bearings, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and emergency brake system to ensure that all are in safe working order. We also recommend that you have a hydraulic system flush periodically. Always consult your owner’s manual for additional service information.
Fuel filters help prevent contaminants from damaging your fuel system by keeping dirt, rust and other contaminants from getting into your engine and your gas tank. Clean filters keep a clean flow to your engine. We recommend having fuel filters replaced every 12 months or 19,000 kilometers / 12,000 miles.
Oil is the lifeblood of your car and oil filters help keep your oil clean. If your oil is dirty your car is susceptible to poor performance or break down. We recommend changing your filter every 4,800 to 9,600 kilometers (3,000-5,000 miles) or whenever you get your oil changed.
Your engine needs to breathe clean air. We recommend installing new air filters every 12 months or 19,000 kilometers (12,000 miles). Always consult your owner’s manual for additional service information.
