- Check the vehicles under hood fluid levels and remove the oil fill cap and breather assemblies (where applicable) Remove the vehicles engine oil drain plug, and drain the contents of the engines oil pan or sump. Remove the filter assembly and clean the sealing surfaces of the housing for reinstallation. On cartridge equipped 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 manufacturers 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. If your maintenance light happens to come on following an oil service, please give us a call so we can correct it.
- WATER VALVE – Remove & Replace – Flow Control Valve
- Drain the engine coolant and flush the system in both directions with water to remove sediment. Forward and reverse flush radiator, heater core, heater control valve, and engine block. Remove the vehicles overflow container and wash out debris where necessary, and fill the reservoir to capacity with new engine coolant. Remove the engines serpentine and or V style drive belts, and clean and lubricate any idlers, pivots, or tensioner assemblies for later reassembly. Clean all mating surfaces on the engine block and timing cover to ensure a proper seal is achieved during reassembly. Install a new water pump and gasket and torque as specified. Reinstall the removed brackets, shields, deflectors, necessary to access the pump. Replace or reinstall the accessory drive belt(s), and check the tensioner assembly for proper operation. Verify belt deflection and alignment of the engines accessories, and lock all manually adjusted tensioners as required. Fill the cooling system to capacity with the specified amount and type of new engine coolant. Run the engine to operating temperature and purge the air from the system. Check the freeze point and acidity of the engine coolant to insure a proper mixture is in the system. Check to verify that the electric cooling fans are operating within their specified temperature range. Check system for leaks and road test the vehicle. Install and run a full data scan where required to insure that all engine controls are functioning as intended. Remove any associated faults from the system and recheck all fluid levels. NOTE: If the system develops an air pocket, the coolant level may decrease slightly. If this occurs, the customer may experience erratic heat output and or a warning light. If any of these symptoms occur, the customer should return to have the system checked / topped off.
