Brake Fluid Service in Calgary

Why flush your brake fluid?
Brake fluid is hydroscopic (attracts water) and becomes contaminated by moisture that is absorbed through the master cylinder reservoir and permeable brake hoses. This dangerously lowers the boiling point of the fluid so that your brakes could get hot enough to cause brake fluid to boil, causing vapour to form in the brake system which is compressible, causing a low brake pedal. High fluid temperatures make brake fluid so acidic that it can result in early failure to brake components and costly repairs. If you have ABS brakes, component failure can run into the thousands of dollars.


Power Steering Fluid Service in Calgary

Why flush your power steering fluid?

Is your car showing signs of contaminated power steering fluid? … noise, stiffness, rough or hard turning? These are signs your car needs to have the power steering fluid serviced.

Over time, the fluid will become very hot under load and start to break down, causing electrochemical degradation. Once this process starts, your power steering pump and rack and pinion begin to clog with sludge and varnish deposits. The sludge and varnish, along with water and other contaminants can cause stiffness, rough steering, leaks, or complete system failure.

A power steering flush machine safely removes these contaminants and cleans all internal power steering components, including power steering hoses, pump, rack and pinion or gearbox. This is the best way to remove wear metals (filings) that are slowly grinding away on your power steering components. Your car’s power steering fluid will be cleaned and protected with fresh power steering fluid and conditioners that revitalize seals and o-rings in your power steering system.


Coolant Service in Calgary

Why does your coolant need to be flushed?

Whenever a fluid is in contact with metal, electrochemical degradation takes place, which results in a higher than normal level of acid. This higher acid level, if left unchanged, can result in costly repairs. It is recommended to flush your cooling system and most importantly, pH balance your anti-freeze at least once every 2 years or every 60,000 km (depending on the type). This will help reduce the acid level and extend the life of your radiator, heater core, water pump, head gaskets, frost plugs, and heater hoses.
