A fan belt connects your vehicle’s engine to the front-mounted accessories. The water pump and engine fan are rotated by the fan belt, which keeps the engine and its components cool. The fan belts in your vehicle will eventually dry out and crack.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The moisture absorbed lowers the boiling point of the liquid and corrodes the lines and cylinders. Because of the lower boiling point, the brake fluid may boil while braking, causing you to lose braking ability, which is common when braking hard. To reduce the effects of absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush performed on a regular basis.
A coolant in a car’s air conditioning system transfers excess heat from one part of the engine to the radiator fins. Over time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty, and the system’s performance suffers as a result. Consider having a regular coolant system flush to ensure the system is working correctly.
When the vehicle turns, the differential compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner and outer wheels. The one thing that every car owner should be aware of is that differential failure means car failure. To keep the differential from failure, have the fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the differential oil is just as important as changing the engine oil.
A fuel injector is a valve that is electronically controlled and delivers pressurized fuel to the engine. When driving, the oxygen sensors notify the engine if it is receiving too much air, which signals the fuel injectors to deliver pressurized fuel to the engine. Because fuel injectors are small equipment, any dirt can clog them. A clogged fuel injector will reduce the performance of your vehicle.
To ensure maximum visibility, always ensure that your vehicle’s headlight bulbs are in good working order.
Hoses transport coolant and antifreeze throughout the cooling system of an engine. Your vehicle’s hoses will eventually dry out and crack.
The oil in your car comprises two main components: base oil and additives. The base oil enables the motor oil to lubricate the engine’s moving parts and protect them from frictional wear and tear. The additives provide additional engine protection by preventing the oil from deteriorating in hot engines.
Did you know that regularly changing your vehicle’s oil is one of the simplest, most effective, and least expensive ways to help protect its engine life? Oil reduces wear and friction while forming a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. The oil also cools engine parts and dampens the shock and noise caused by moving parts.
The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve is essential to some vehicles’ emissions control systems. The PCV valve becomes clogged with sludge from contaminants in the exhaust gasses over time. If your vehicle has a PCV valve, it should be cleaned and (if necessary) replaced.
The hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in a steering wheel is known as the power steering fluid. A power steering flush will almost certainly help to extend the life of the power steering components. Failure to perform periodic power steering flushes causes essential parts such as the power steering pump, seals, power steering rack, and O-rings to wear out.
A radiator is a vehicle component that keeps the engine cool and protects it from overheating. To stay cool, the radiator must always be clean. Sludge, rust, and other solid deposits accumulate inside your car’s radiator over time. A regular radiator flush is sufficient to keep the system in good working order.
Although most manufacturers recommend performing a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, certain symptoms may indicate that you need one sooner. Transmission grinding or strange noises, difficulty shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and a delay in vehicle movement are all indicators that your vehicle needs a transmission flush sooner rather than later.
Transmission flush and filter change is a comprehensive maintenance service that replaces old, deteriorated transmission fluid and filters with new ones. The service is intended to extend the life of your transmission.
Transmission service, like engine oil replacement, is part of routine vehicle maintenance. Adding new fluid restores the clutches’ holding power, and this service improves lubrication and extends the life of the transmission.
Visibility is critical for safe driving. Wipers that work correctly can help keep you safer on the road. If your car’s wipers aren’t working correctly or are leaving streaks, have them replaced right away.
