- 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.
- Install data scanner and engine analyzer. Run tests on the fuel, ignition, and computer control systems. Retrieve fault codes from the processors memory. Codes exist in the system for P0304 cylinder 4 misfire, P0316 misfire on startup detected. Perform all necessary pin point tests checking the wiring, grounds, relays, and related circuit components to isolate the problem to the spark plugs are worn and need to be replaced along with an injection service.
- Clean the debris from the engines lower intake, and remove all ignition coil assemblies and spark plugs. Run thread chaser through the cylinder head to remove debris and clean the spark plug hole threads. Clean and tighten the coil terminal connections, and check the weather seals to prevent moisture intrusion. Set the gap of the new plugs to the manufacturers specification and apply anti-seize compound to plug threads. Install the spark plugs and torque to specification. Reinstall the vehicles ignition coils and install the coil connections using dielectric grease. Reinstall any previously removed vacuum, emissions, fuel, and electrical harnesses. Reinstall all ancillary engine brackets, and torque all components to the manufacturers specification. Remove air filter element and clean the inside of the air inlet box. Reassemble air box and remove fuel lines at the filter assembly. Clean fuel line ends and replace o-rings, clips or sealing washers and install new filter if applicable. Perform full injection system service using the Motor Vac System… The MotorVac Complete Fuel System Service is a revolutionary procedure that uses a specially designed machine that hooks directly to the vehicle. Utilizing a special detergent (which will not damage your vehicles sophisticated fuel system components) the equipment removes the dirt, varnish, and carbon deposits that normally build up on the intake valves, fuel injectors, and combustion surfaces. The air intake plenum, air charge, air bypass valve, and throttle body are also thoroughly cleaned during this process. In addition, oxygen sensors, and catalytic converters are cleaned reducing harmful exhaust emissions. All fuel system components are thoroughly tested as part of this service; Fuel pressure (static, and dynamic) regulator operation, leak down (at both injector assemblies and pump shuttle valve) and volume tests to verify that your fuel system is operating properly. Base idle adjustment is included where applicable. Install data scanner and run engine to operating temperature to verify that all computer controls are operating within parameters. Road test vehicle and verify static ignition timing
