Apple Valley, MN Oil Change Services, Car Fluid Changes
The services that are most often neglected by drivers are also some of the most critical for your vehicle. The expensive and sophisticated engines in today’s vehicles can be completely destroyed by improper fluid care. Fluid maintenance services such as oil changes, transmission fluid changes and differential fluid changes are a Precision Tune Auto Care specialty.
Expert technicians agree that the oil change is the single most important maintenance service your vehicle can receive. Dirty oil will abrade engine parts and eventually turn to sludge. Without proper lubrication, engine components create so much friction they weld together and the engine seizes.
When does the oil in my vehicle need changed?
Most manufacturers recommend an oil change every three months or 3,000 miles under demanding driving conditions including city driving, stop and go traffic, short trips, dusty conditions or just about every case except steady highway driving.
What does our automotive Oil Change include?
- Up to 5 quarts of major brand oil
- New oil filter
- Lubrication of the various fittings on your vehicle’s undercarriage when applicable
- Courtesy maintenance inspection
Brake Fluid Flush
The Brake Fluid transmits hydraulic force, lubricates braking system components, and prevents corrosion.
Performing a brake fluid flush will increase braking system component life and provide even braking.
Our certified technician will inspect and record the brake fluid level, master cylinder and brake lines. They will evacuate and refill the master cylinder, bleed the braking system, refill the master cylinder to the previous recorded level and then test drive the vehicle.
The differential transmits power from the vehicles’ driveshaft to the front or rear axles and must be properly lubricated.
Performing a differential fluid service will increase rear differential component life and maintain proper lubrication.
Our certified technician will visually inspect differential fluid level and look for signs of leakage. They will perform differential fluid service, adjust differential fluid to proper level, and then test drive.
Power Steering Fluid Flush
The power steering fluid provides hydraulic power to the steering system. Power steering fluid becomes contaminated with rubber and metal particles.
Performing a power steering fluid flush will provide longer power steering component life and a smoother, quieter, more dependable steering operation.
Our certified technician will inspect and record power steering fluid levels and look for visible leaks. They will evacuate and refill the power steering reservoir, perform flushing process, and adjust fluid to the proper levels.
Transmission Fluids Exchanges
Transmission fluid transmits power, lubricates, prevents corrosion and removes heat.
Performing a transmission fluid exchange will remove and replace virtually 100% of your transmission fluid. This provides a longer transmission life and smoother operation.
Our certified technician will test drive the vehicle, check transmission fluid level, inspect the transmission fluid pan for leaks. After recording the required transmission fluid type and quantity, they’ll perform the transmission fluid exchange process and adjust transmission fluid to the proper level before test driving the vehicle.
