At Seeburg Service Center, we fully embrace and suggest getting scheduled maintenance of your vehicle. Getting fluid flushes at regular service intervals not only makes your vehicle perform better. It also helps vital (and expensive) components in the transmission, brake, power steering, and cooling systems last longer.
Engine Fluid Flushes
Antifreeze coolant wears out over time and loses its protective qualities. This deterioration can cause rust and corrosion throughout your engine cooling system, which may clog the system components and interrupt the proper flow of the coolant. If your vehicle’s cooling system is not serviced regularly, your neglect could lead to expensive repairs. In fact, cooling system problems are the number one reason for breakdowns on the road!
Because of this, your cooling system should be serviced at periodic intervals, typically every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Seeburg Service Center would be happy to help. We provide cooling system flushes and fill services for all car makes and models, and we have the tools and skills needed to properly flush your vehicle’s cooling system. This affordable and quick service will extend your engine’s life and keep you safe on the road.
Transmission Fluid Flushes
Your car’s transmission system are made up of a large number of a number of shafts and gears that work together to make it move forward (or backward). In order to function properly, these gears must be kept well lubricated. Otherwise, the gears will slip and cause the transmission to ultimately fail. The cost of a new transmission can be up to $8,000, so it makes sense to get preventive maintenance for your car’s transmission to extend its life.
Transmission fluid ultimately breaks down over time. Metal shavings and other contaminants degrade the fluid and keep it from doing it’s job: to lubricate moving parts in the transmission free of friction. A complete flush and replacement of your car’s transmission fluid at periodic intervals will not only save you money, it also improves performance and avoids untimely breakdowns.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Many parts of the braking system are made of metal. Since brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts moisture over time, those major components are at risk of failure because of corrosion. In addition, as brake fluid ages and becomes contaminated, the braking performance deteriorates. Though this can happen slowly over time, a small amount of braking power can make the difference if you need to stop on a dime. Finally, anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are particularly affected by moisture and contaminated fluid.
Poor brake performance is a safety issue. We typically recommend a brake fluid flush before it has a chance to damage expensive components and compromise your brake system.
Power Steering System Flushes
As with brake components, the power steering system is made up of hydraulic parts. The constant amount of steering and turning we do while driving ultimately causes the power steering fluid to build up with sludge and harmful deposits, Over time, the contaminated fluid will negatively effect the ability to turn easily. It also causes expensive parts like the rack & pinion to fail prematurely.
Experts disagree on how often to get a power steering system flush, but we recommend it every 45,000 to 60,000 miles.
Differential Fluid Exchanges
The differential and transmission work together to transfer power from the engine to the axle. The fluid in the differential lubricates the gears to keep them working properly. Over time, this fluid breaks down due to extreme temperatures and wear. Like other systems in the car, contaminated differential fluid performance impacts performance and will result in a premature failure of this part.
Differential fluid should be replaced according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. We can provide you with that information.
