COOLANT SYSTEM FLUSH AND INSPECTION
RECOMMENDED EVERY 3 YEARS
Use of a cooling system cleaner is not necessary unless the system has been badly neglected and is full of lime deposits. The cooling system should be refilled with a 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze and clean water. This provides freezing protection down to -34 degrees F and boil-over protection to 265 degrees F. When coolant is changed, inspect belts and hoses. Make a visual inspection for leaks. Pressure test radiator and cap. Check operation of heater and defroster. The thermostat does not need changing unless it has been causing trouble or the engine has severely overheated. If a thermostat is replaced, it should have the same temperature rating as the original. This is extremely important on late model vehicles with computerized engine controls. Fuel, ignition and emission functions are all affected by coolant temperature.

Replace and Flush Brake Fluid
RECOMMENDED EVERY 2 YEARS
DOT 3 and DOT 4-brake fluids are glycol based and absorb moisture over time. Moisture contamination also contributes to internal corrosion in the calipers, wheel cylinders, and steel brake lines. The reason for replacing fluid periodically is to get rid of contaminated fluid and restore fluid heat and corrosion resistance. Moisture seeps in through microscopic pores in rubber seals and hoses. We remove the brake fluid reservoir and clean it with approved cleaners, fill with clean fluid and replace remaining old fluid with new clean brake fluid.
