What is a brake fluid flush?
A process that flushes (or drains) the old brake fluid along with any air bubbles, debris, and rust; and replaces it with new (clean) brake fluid.
How is it performed?
First your mechanic will connect a line to each wheel; this line then feeds back to a brake-flushing machine. Once the machine is properly secured to the reservoir and there are no leaks your mechanic will activate the machine, which acts like a vacuum and pulls out the old fluid, while simultaneously adding the new brake fluid. The flush is complete when the fluids in all lines run clear.
How often should I have a brake fluid service?
It is recommended to replace your brake fluid every 4-6 years (or every 80 to 120,000 KM's). However, it is always best to follow the guidelines outlined in your owner's manual.
Why should I do a brake service?
It is important to replace your brake fluid because over time brake fluid absorbs moisture from the humidity in the air. In this case water is bad as it has a much lower boiling point then brake fluid and those brakes can get hot! If this mixture starts to boil it will create gas bubbles, and gas is compressible. When you press your brake pedal and create the hydraulic pressure in the brake system, instead of that force being transferred to your brake pads to slow your car down, that force is just compressing gas, and this can diminish your stopping ability. Not a situation anyone wants to be in!

 

Your vehicle's wheel alignment serves a critical part in maintain optimal duration and performance of your vehicle. By having your alignment checked, you can catch some issues before they end up costing you. Here are some reasons to have your alignment checked:  
- Is your steering wheel pulling to the side when you are driving straight?
- Are your tires wearing unevenly?
- Have you recently had any suspension work done including the replacement of shocks and/or struts?
- Have you experienced any harsh driving events like running over a deep pot hole or hitting a curb while parking?
- Is your steering wheel pulling to the side when you are driving straight?
- Are you noticing uneven tire wear? You can tell if individual tires are wearing in an uneven pattern, or if your set of tires are not wearing consistently.
If you are experiencing any of the issues mentioned above, you should consider an alignment check to determine in advance if an alignment is required. An alignment check is also a great preventative inspection to have done as it will catch some of these items before extensive repairs are required. As an example, an inspection could end up saving you from having to replace a set of tires due to uneven tire wear which could limit the tires ability to provide proper traction for cornering and breaking.
