  • 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 vehicles wheel in order to gain access to the calipers. Remove the brake hose from the caliper and all of the braking components (hardware, brake pads, and slides) for the caliper. Remove the caliper from the vehicle and install the new caliper into position. Reconnect the brake hose to the caliper and lube all slides for the caliper. Install all hardware and tighten to specification. Clean all residual brake fluid from the vehicle and perform a full brake fluid flush in order to remove any contaminants or moisture from the system. Vacuum bleed the system to remove any air or contaminants that remain and road test the vehicle to ensure proper braking and check for leaks.

  • 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.
  • The Right front pressure sensor is not producing a signal and will need to be replaced. Remove the tire from the wheel and replace the tire pressure sensor/valve stem assembly and clean any corrosion build up from the wheel flange. Remount the tire and balance to specification. Inflate all tires to manufacturers specification, and verify the sensor is producing an active reading. Perform the specified relearn procedure to the tire pressure monitoring system in order for the new sensor to be recognized by the corresponding module. Road […]
