- 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.
- 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.
- Check for vibration over 60. Just replaced brakes and rotors in Dec. Just grinding.
- Remove calipers, clips, and bracket assemblies. Remove the rear disc brake pads and clean and lubricate the caliper slides. Disassemble the rear emergency brake components, and clean and lubricate all associated hardware and linkages. Reassemble the emergency brake assemblies, and deglaze the emergency brake shoes. Set the shoe width to fit the inside diameter of the rotor assemblies, and verify the adjustment. Replace the rear brake rotors and install new brake pads. Perform all necessary system adjustments and vacuum bleed the brake calipers. Top off the master cylinder to proper level, and road test vehicle.
- Remove front brackets, adjusters, and pulleys necessary to access the accessory belt components. Remove the engines serpentine and or V style drive belts, and clean and lubricate any idlers, pivots, or tensioner assemblies for later reassembly. Clean the pulley grooves to remove built up rubber and debris that will cause premature wear / noise issues with the replacement belt(s). Check all accessories, idlers, and tensioners for bearing deflection. Replace the accessory drive and or serpentine belt(s) and reassemble the removed components. Adjust the drive belts to specification, and run the engine to check for proper operation of the idler and tensioner pulleys. Verify belt deflection and alignment of the engines accessories, and lock all manually adjusted tensioners as required.
