A Transmission Power Flush

Is a procedure to remove old automatic transmission fluid, sludge and grime from a vehicle’s transmission and replace it with flesh fluid.  The Power Flush method removes the fluid from the torque converter, cooler lines, clutch packs and valve body, effectively replacing 100% of your vehicles automatic transmission fluid.  The Power Flush machine attaches to the pump intake after the pan and filer are removed.  The flushing process, when done correctly, replaces nearly 100% of the old fluid with new fluid, including fluid in the torque converter and oil cooler lines.

Transmission Fluid Service

When servicing your vehicle’s transmission if it’s just a flush or full tune up, always use the specified manufacturer’s oil and specifications. Transmission fluid should be serviced every 15-30,000 miles depending on the manufacturer

Differential Flush

The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential’s position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car’s engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush.

Power Steering Flush

Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in a steering wheel. Servicing the power steering involves flushing out the old power steering fluid and adding fresh fluid. A power steering flush will definitely help prolong the life of the power steering components. Failure to have periodic power steering flushes results in important parts like the power steering pump, the seals, power steering rack, and the O-rings wearing out.

Radiator Flush

A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean – always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car’s radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle’s performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule.

Brake System Flush

Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid’s boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Advantage Automotive Repair’s lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts.

Coolant System Flush

A car’s air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system’s performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car’s cooling system. Call 925-829-9898 or visit, Advantage Automotive Repair for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle’s heating and cooling systems today.
TIP: always ask your technician to check if the water pump needs replacement at the time the timing belt is being replaced duplication of work
