VW and Audi Owners, here are few service and maintenance tips:
- Fuel Injector Flush
Stop spending your money on unnecessary work that your car does not need. Have you ever been told that your vehicle needs a Fuel Injector Flush for greater MPG? WRONG!!! ...from our
in house testing there is not proof of any MPG improvement due to cleaning injectors using fuel injector flush products.
- Cooling System Flush
How about those cooling system flushes? Most VW and Audi's are using lifetime coolant. Unless the Coolant is contaminated or the system has been opened due to repairs, the coolant does not
need to be replaced. For all VW/Audi vehicles we strongly suggest using only OEM G12 Coolant to keep your vehicles cooling system in proper working condition.
- Check Engine Light
The check engine light comes on when the on-board computer detects a fault in engine drive-ability or performance, transmission control system or transmission, or the emissions system, and a fault
code is set and stored in the computer. Faults that can set the check engine light can range from a vacuum leak, engine miss-fire, low engine compression, faulty sensor such as O2 sensor or other
engine sensor, hydraulic pressure loss in transmission, transmission shift solenoid, open/short in wiring harness, emission evaporative system leak, or one of over a hundred different reasons. If
your vehicle has Check Engine Light now we strongly advice not to disregard it and have your vehicle diagnosed/repaired ASAP to avoid sever damaged that could be caused from failed component to rest
of engine, transmission, brake system, or electrical system.
- Brake Fluid
Brake fluid is subjected to very high temperatures.. It must have a high boiling point to avoid vaporizing in the brake lines. This vaporization is a problem because vapors are compressible and
negates hydraulic fluid transfer of braking force. Car manufacturers require periodic fluid changes suggested replacement interval of every 2 years, to ensure reliability and safety of brake
system. Once installed, moisture is being absorbed into the fluid through brake hoses and rubber seals and, eventually, the fluid will have to be replaced when the water content becomes too high.
Electronic testers and test strips are commercially available to measure moisture content. The corrosion inhibitors also degrade over time.
- Motor Oil
Because of the real need for motor oils with unique qualities, modern Volkswagen's and Audi's vehicles demand high quality synthetic a specific oil standard of 5W-40 most engines. Motor oil must be
able to flow adequately at the lowest temperature it is expected to experience in order to minimize metal to metal contact between moving parts upon starting up the engine. Rubbing of metal engine
parts inevitably produces some microscopic metallic particles from the wearing of the surfaces. Such particles could circulate in the oil and grind against moving parts, causing wear. Because
particles accumulate in the oil, it is typically circulated through an oil filter to remove harmful particles. Using the proper high quality lubrication oil is crucial for the life expectancy of your
Engine. Due to possible of oil sludge/carbon deposits build up in engine, we suggest using only high quality synthetic oil your engine and using quality premium fuel with octane rating 91 or higher
for max engine performance and efficiency.
- OEM Maintenance Plan
An OEM Service Plan is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has traveled a certain distance. This plan has been developed by Factory Engineers in
the Developing stage of your vehicle. The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some cars display the due date for the next service electronically on
the instrument panel. A complete service history usually adds to the resale value of a vehicle and a trouble FREE usage of your vehicle.
