In addition to oil changes, preventive maintenance should be performed seasonally as it may increase the longevity of your vehicle.
We recommend upgrading your oil change service to a Road-Ready service at least twice a year.
» Oil change; battery test; tire rotation and inflation
» Fluid top-ups (windshield washer, power steering and transmission)
» Lubrication of door locks and hinges
» Visual inspection of brakes, steering and suspension, drive axle boots/seals
» Analysis of timing belt (based on mileage)
» A printout of your vehicle inspection report
SEASONAL OIL CHANGE
Different motor oils affect your vehicle’s performance, so it’s important to choose the right one for your vehicle.
We recommend changing your oil at the beginning of each new driving season.
» Draining and replenishing engine oil; installation of new warranty-approved oil filter; lubrication of chassis, suspension and steering system, if applicable.
» Vehicle inspection report on:
» Filters – including cabin filter, if applicable
» Coolant and hoses
» Drive belts and tensioners
» Battery, cables and terminals
» Wiper blades
OIL FILTER COMPARISON
Basic: Meets or exceeds all manufacturers’ requirements. Affordable protection. 94% dirt-trapping efficiency.
High Mileage: With a gel additive to help protect seals and gaskets. 95% dirt-trapping efficiency.
Synthetic: Metal screen-reinforced, dual-layer synthetic media. At least 99% dirt-trapping efficiency.
Rust, scale, sludge and air reduce its effectiveness and can cause premature failure of components. A regular flush and fill maintains proper pH levels while to prevent this.
Standard Flush and Fill
» Coolant test for pH and freezing point.
» Pressure test system for leaks, including radiator cap.
» Flush of old engine coolant.
» Fill of up to 8L of coolant.
» Inspection of fan belt and other system components.
» Written Vehicle Inspection Report
Premium Prestone® Flush and Fill
» Evaluation of entire cooling system and written C.A.R.E. report.
» Coolant test for pH and freezing point.
» Chemical treatment and pressure flush of your system.
» Installation of up to 8L of Prestone coolant (upgrade to Long Life coolant available for an additional charge).
» Coolant system conditioner.
POWER STEERING FLUSH
Power steering fluid not only helps transfer pressure from the steering wheel to the tires, it also lubricates the steering system.
We recommend having this inspected with every oil change.
» Quality control system performance test.
» Visual inspection of the power steering system and its components.
» Flushing the old fluid and refilling the system with new, manufacturer-approved fluid.
BRAKE FLUID FLUSH
Brake fluid is contaminated over time due to extreme pressure, heat and exposure to moisture. Dirty brake fluid can also damage the hydraulic components of your braking system.
» Road test to assess system performance.
» Complete system flush of old brake fluid and any contaminants.
» Up to 1L of brake fluid.
» Complete inspection of your brake system with a written evaluation.
» Comprehensive evaluation of your braking system.
» Detailed written estimate for items requiring adjustment, repair or replacement.
TRANSMISSION FLUID FLUSH
Failure to change transmission fluid and filters may allow these particles to clog the small passageways and valves in your transmission, impeding performance and causing irreversible damage.
» Draining automatic transmission fluid and removal of varnish and metal contaminants.
» Installation of transmission fluid (synthetic or synthetic-blend upgrade available at an additional charge).
» Replacement of filter and pan gasket, where applicable.
ENGINE OIL FLUSH
Engine oil turns into sludge deposits, which decreases the performance of the engine; performing an engine flush helps maintain and extend the life of your engine.
Draining a portion of the vehicle's engine oil and replacing it with an engine flush additive.
Just like engine oil, differential fluid breaks downs during operating temperature and eventually becomes contaminated.
Draining the vehicle's differential fluid and removing varnish and metal contaminants.
• Installation of differential fluid (synthetic or synthetic-blend upgrade available at an additional charge).
• Replacement of gasket, where applicable.
