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.

Behind the Scenes of an OMS Tire Rotation!
Come with us behind the scenes as one of our Service Technicians, Ryker, performs a tire rotation! Routinely rotating your tires is crucial to ensuring their longevity and will ultimately save you money!
What is a Tire Rotation?
Since the weight of your vehicle is distributed different, your front tires can wear quicker than the others.  With a tire rotation, each wheel is removed and then moved to a new position on your vehicle. For instance, with a front-wheel drive vehicle, the left front wheel will be moved to the back left, the right front wheel will be moved to the back right, then the left back wheel will be moved to the front right and the right back wheel will be moved to the front left. This can be confusing! By rearranging the tires you ensure that the tread on each wheel wears evenly over time. The other great thing about a tire rotation is that we will check tire pressure, torque the wheel nuts (which can become loose over time), and reset your tire pressure monitor and sensors.  

If you are curious to the benefit of this service, have a look at each wheel of your vehicle and see if you notice a difference in the tread and wear of the rubber. A tire rotation is included with our vehicle health check service as well as when you have your winter/summer tires swapped.  For any questions regarding a tire rotation, or other maintenance related inquiries, please reach out to one of our qualified service professionals at 905-725-8304 or email us at service@ontariomotorsales.com
