ENGINE PERFORMANCE

An oil flush helps remove the carbon build up in the engine and oil system. A dirty engine reduces efficiency, affects fuel economy and can cost you more money. A treatment and engine flush to your next service can ensure your vehicles engine is running optimally and returning the best possible fuel economy.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Urban driving, and the increased start/stop driving patterns increase the rate at which carbon build up can accumulate in the engine and key components which leads to premature accelerated engine wear. Our engine flush treatment helps the following:

  • Removes sludge and contaminate build up in the engine
  • Prevents contamination of fresh oil by residues left behind
  • Quietens noise hydraulic valve lifters
  • Improves engine efficiency and fuel economy

TIMING

The engine timing is crucial for the proper combustion of an internal combustion engine. It involves synchronisation of the camshaft and crank correlation.

Here’s why it’s important:

  • Maximise performance
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Reduced emissions
  • Engine longevity
  • Prevent engine damage

Common timing issues:

  • Timing belt/chain failure: It is breaks or jumps a tooth, the engine may not run or could be severely damaged
  • Vacuum leaks: Can affect the engine’s timing and lead to poor performance
  • Worn components: Wear and tear on the timing chain/belt, gears or other components and could lead to timing issues

 

CYLINDER HEAD

Cylinder head gasket is used to form the seal between the engine block and the cylinder head.

A failure in the cylinder head gasket, often referred to as a “blown head gasket,” can result in severe engine problems like overheating, loss of power, oil contamination, and coolant leakage. Symptoms of a damaged head gasket include white exhaust smoke (indicative of coolant entering the combustion chamber), a milky substance in the oil (sign of coolant and oil mixing), overheating, or loss of coolant without visible leaks.

WATER PUMPS

The water pump is a crucial component of your vehicle’s cooling system. It circulates coolant through the engine and the radiator, which helps maintain the optimal temperature for engine performance. Here’s why changing and maintaining your vehicle’s water pump is essential:

  • Prevents overheating
  • Enhances engine longevity
  • Improves fuel efficiency
  • Prevents coolant leaks
  • Avoid costly repairs

Signs your water pump needs attention:

  • Coolant leaks
  • Whining noise
  • Overheating
  • Steam from the radiator
