ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDED SERVICES

ENGINE FLUSH SERVICE

Frequent oil and filter changes are highly recommended, and for good reason. The lubricating properties of oil enable it to protect the metal and moving parts throughout your vehicle's engine. However, regular oil changes do not go far enough. A typical oil change is not able to remove all of the oil from the engine. As a result, such elements as sludge, metal fragments and contaminants remain trapped inside. Our Complete Engine Flush Service uses a powerful cleaning solution that is designed to rid your engine of harmful particles. We then replace the oil and filter and add a special conditioner to protect against contaminants. The goal is a smoother running engine and extended engine wear. The frequency of this service can vary depending on local traffic conditions and personal driving habits. Your service advisor can help you determine the interval that is right for you

FUEL INJECTION FLUSH SERVICE

The fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve responsible for supplying an even flow of fuel to your vehicle's engine. The injectors spray directly into the intake valves, and it is critical that this spray is as fine a mist as possible, so that the fuel will burn more easily. When fuel injectors become dirty or clogged, your vehicle can experience problems ranging from surging and hesitation to hard starting. Utilizing our specialized equipment, one of our highly trained Technicians will clean your vehicle's fuel injectors with a specially formulated solvent that flushes out unwanted particles and deposits, enabling your vehicle's fuel injectors to deliver a fine, even spray. This service not only can improve driveability and restore horsepower, but it can also improve fuel economy

THROTTLE BODY SERVICE

The light turns green, you depress the accelerator, and your vehicle... stalls. You are frustrated, and so are the motorists blaring their horns behind you! If your vehicle is experiencing stalling or hesitation, it is likely due -- at least, in part -- to improper maintenance of the throttle body. In today's fuel injected engines, the throttle body is a device that controls the amount of air flow to the engine. Over time, dirt and gum can gradually accumulate in the throttle body. A portion of this debris is airborne dirt that makes its way through the air filter, but most of it results from oil and combustion gases coming from the engine as the intake valves open and close. As part of our Complete Throttle Body Service, one of our skilled Technicians will thoroughly clean the throttle body using highly specialized chemicals. This cleaning will protect the throttle body and ensure that it works in proper unison with the intake valves and fuel injectors.
