Remove the filter assembly and clean the sealing surfaces of the housing for reinstallation. On cartridge equipd vehicles, replace the housing O rings and clean the debris from the housing and relief valves. Lubricate the O rings on the housing and or the filter assembly and replace the filter or element. Clean and inspect the oil drain plug gasket, and check the threads in the engines oil pan. Torque the plug to the manufacturers specification using a new gasket where required. Clean the grease zerks to remove debris, and lubricate all accessible fittings on the vehicles steering, suspension, driveline and chassis components. Check and or set the tire pressures and relearn the TPMS system where required. Fill the engine with the manufactures specified type, grade, and viscosity engine oil and verify level after purging the new filter. Check and or top off all low fluid levels and reset the maintenance reminder system where applicable. Note. Some vehicles maintenance reminders do not take on initial reset.

  • Remove the four tires from the vehicle, and clean the wheel studs, hub flanges, and the rims centric. Check the vehicles braking system components for wear, remaining brake material, and signs of pending issues. Reinstall the tires onto the vehicle in their best suited locations based on overall wear, torquing all lugs to factory specification. Inflate all tires to the manufacturers suggested pressure, and visually assess the tread for abnormal wear which may indicate a need for a wheel alignment. Reset the vehicles tire pressure monitor sensor locations where required, using the factory approved TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring) system, scan tool. Road test the vehicle and confirm there is no abnormal handling characteristics following the rotation. Note: Some vehicles may have a slight drift following a tire rotation. This is due to a pattern that developes in some tires due to excessive time in one location. This condition should improve as the tread conforms to the new location / alignment angle. If drifting would not improve, sometimes an alignment or a cross rotation is required.

  • What is Fluid Film? The destructive force of corrosion is the single greatest threat to your vehicle. Consistent exposure to a wide range of elements such as sun, rain, wind and snow can lead to rapid deterioration of metal, not only resulting in poor appearance and loss of value, but hazardous safety issues as well. Road salt and debris also kick up and cling to vehicle underbodies, eating away at metal and electrical connections. During the last few years we've noticed that we are replacing more undercarriage parts due to deterioration than any other cause. Brake lines, Fuel lines, and even frame components are requiring replacement more than ever costing our clients thousands of dollars a year in undue expenses! In searching for a solution, we looked at several different traditional 'undercoating' products, and were unimpressed with the drawbacks that they all had, as well as the high costs of application. After careful consideration, we decided on a natural, lanolin based product called Fluid Film. Marketing and advertising can make a lot of claims, so before offering it to you, we put it to the test – our tests. We are thrilled to report that it has performed at an outstanding level in every scenario we could throw at it. After almost a year of personal testing, we have decided it is, in our opinion, the safest, cheapest, easiest, and most cost effective way to protect your vehicle and is an exceptional choice for automotive applications. Fluid Film is manufactured using an intricate heating and blending process, which combines unrefined wool wax with selective polar agents and corrosion inhibitors, creating a unique, lanolin-based formulation that stops existing rust on contact. Penetrating on contact, it creates a fluid, self-healing barrier that is always active and will not chip or crack, protecting vehicle undercoating's and exposed metals for extended periods of time. Safe for use on all metals, it will stop pitting in chrome, will not harm most paints or plastic, and has exceptional lubricating properties, penetrating to stop squeaks and provide lasting lubricity for all moving parts. Electrically non-conductive, Fluid Film has a high flash point and a thin, flexible composition, making it a perfect protectant for battery terminals and electrical connections as well. Fluid Film penetrates to the base metal, providing a lasting, protective barrier from the corrosive effects of salts, calcium and sodium chloride, pesticides and fertilizers. Offering an easy "no drip" application, Fluid Film offers a cheaper and more effective alternative to the standard hard-underbody coatings. Protecting undercarriage components from metal deterioration, Fluid Film also remains soft and pliable, making it self-healing, non-drying, and impossible to crack. Fluid Film migrates to inaccessible areas, providing up to a full year of solid protection on heavily […]

  • The vehicles fuel lines are in very poor condition from external deterioration. Replacement lines will be required to prevent future leaks in the system as well as stop any current leaks. Install fuel pressure test equipment and relieve the fuel system pressure. Clean all the fuel line connections and areas surrounding the fuel lines unions and clamps before removal in order to avoid possible contamination of the fuel system. Disconnect the fuel feed and fuel return pipe quick-connect fittings in the engine compartment. Disconnect the evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge pipe at the EVAP canister purge valve. Remove the fuel and EVAP pipes from the retainers. Raise the vehicle. Disconnect the fuel return pipe quick-connect fitting. Disconnect the EVAP purge pipe at the EVAP canister. Disconnect the threaded fitting from the fuel filter outlet. Cap the fuel filter, the fuel feed pipe and the fuel return pipe as needed in order to stop any fuel leakage. Clean and evaporator and purge inlets to ensure there is no debris to contaminate the valve or canistor. Install the fuel and the EVAP pipe bundle. Remove the caps from the fuel filter, the fuel feed pipe, and the fuel return pipe. Connect the fuel return pipe quick-connect fitting. Connect the EVAP purge pipe at the EVAP canister. Connect the threaded fitting to the fuel filter outlet (The fuel filter is usually replaced while performing this repair if the vehicle's design permits). Use a back-up wrench in order to prevent the fuel filter from turning. Tighten the fuel filter fitting to 30 [n-m] (22 lb ft). Lower the vehicle and connect the fuel pipes at the fuel rail. Connect the EVAP purge pipe at the EVAP canister purge valve. Install the fuel and EVAP pipes into their retainers and verify proper clearance from the chassis components. Tighten the fuel tank filler pipe cap and reinstall access pressure port caps. Connect the negative battery cable and pressure test the fuel system to check for leaks. Road test the vehicle and perform a final inspection to verify that all components are dry, properly clearanced, and sufficiently secured.
