Power Steering Flush Service

Our technicians use a powerful cleaner to dissolve gum and varnish in your vehicle’s power steering unit. Next we flush old worn-out, contaminated fluid and install fresh new fluid fortified with special antioxidant and anti-wear ingredients to prevent expensive mechanical failures.

Transmission Flush Service

Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter, and lines. Flush out all old fluid and install high-tech fluid with conditioners.

Engine Flush Service

Install and circulate a powerful cleaner to remove damaging sludge and deposits (which decrease power and engine life) from your vehicles engine lubrication system. Install high quality oil and a conditioner to prevent oxidation and reduce friction and wear of engine parts.

Battery Service

This service will safely and quickly remove accumulated corrosion deposits from battery terminals and cables. We also install anticorrosion pads to prevent future corrosion deposit formation.

Driveline Service

When driveline lube fluid is left in for too long, your vehicle will experience premature wear of gears, bearings, and seals resulting in differential or transfer case failure. Our driveline service removes worn out gear oil and replaces it with new synthetic gear lubricants.

Brake System Flush Service

Brake fluid draws moisture which oxidizes and contaminates your brake fluid. This will shorten the life of ABS and basic brake components. We power flush the brake system and fill with new Heavy Duty Dot 4 High Temperature Brake Fluid.

Cabin Air Filter Replacement Service

The cabin air filter for your vehicle is designed to remove air borne contaminates like dirt, dust, pollen and pet hair from the air before it enters your vehicle. We encourage following the factory recommended replacement intervals for the air cabin filters in your vehicle.
