Preventive auto fluid maintenance.

Auto maintenance can include a number of services to keep your car or truck on the road. Preventive maintenance is sometimes referred to as fluid maintenance because many of the services involve flushing mechanical components of the vehicle and replacing the compromised fluid with fresh lubricant in order to keep your vehicle operating efficiently.

Automatic Transmission Service

Ninety percent of transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination. Conventional transmission services remove only a small portion of the contaminated fluid from the system. Leftover fluid contaminates the new fluid, causing new deposits to form more quickly. These deposits reduce the ability of the fluid to cool properly, lending itself to further breakdown, overheating, and ultimately transmission failure.

Cooling System Service

Cooling system failures are the leading cause of mechanical breakdown on the road according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. – Antifreeze/Coolant gradually loses its protective qualities, allowing corrosion and deposits to form. This build-up chokes off the proper flow of the coolant and may lead to overheating, freeze ups in the winter, breakdown.

Power Steering System Service

Helps to provide optimal steering efficiency and extend the life of the power steering components. Power steering fluid is one of the most overlooked automotive system fluids in a vehicle. Power steering fluid loses effectiveness over time, risking steering system performance and ultimately failure that may cost of $1,000.

Transfer Case Service

Helps increase performance as well as extend the life of the transfer case and its components. 4×4 and all-wheel drive vehicles place high amounts of stress on the critical transfer case. A properly functioning transfer case is paramount in these types of vehicles.

Complete Oil System Service

Helps prolong the life of the engine, increase fuel economy, and improve engine performance. Up to a half quart of used oil and sludge may remain in your engine after a traditional oil change. Sludge and contaminants lead to mechanical breakdowns, premature engine failure, and costly repairs which may exceed $5,000.

HVAC Odor Eliminator Service

Mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria in the air conditioning & heating system can make the quality of the air inside your vehicle up to 5 times worse than outside air. These harmful organisms may trigger odors, allergies, and asthma symptoms for those in the vehicle. VPS All Season Heater & A/C System Odor Eliminator Service keeps the air free of odors and harmful mold and mildew spores.

Brake Fluid Exchange Service

Brake fluid, like all fluids found throughout the vehicle, breaks down over time and must be flushed out of the vehicle’s braking system in order to function optimally.

Manual Transmission Service

Manual transmissions must be flushed periodically in order to keep the transmission operating.

4×4 Differential Service

Helps increase fuel economy, as well as avoid costly replacement of the gear box and components. Changing the gear oil is the most commonly overlooked scheduled maintenance service. Manufacturer’s recommend severe service intervals as early as 7,500 to 15,000 miles. Helps extend the life of the gear box and its components which may exceed $1,500 in replacement costs.

Fuel Filter Service

The fuel filter is generally located in the fuel line and its function is to filter the fuel before it enters the combustion chamber of the engine. An old, clogged fuel filter can restrict fuel flow and impede vehicle performance and mileage.

Battery Terminal Service

Corrosive build-up on the battery terminals reduce cranking capacity (difficult starting) and shortens battery life, which may leave you stranded. This service is backed by an Anti-Corrosion Lifetime Guarantee.
