Fluid Flushes – John’s Automotive Care – San Diego, CA

Local San Diego, CA Fluid Flush Experts, John’s Automotive Care

What exactly is a fluid flush? A simple understanding of the automotive fluid flush must start with a basic explanation of how fluids help machinery work better and last longer.

Automotive lubricants are liquids introduced to car, truck, van or SUV machinery parts that help reduce friction between moving surfaces. They are also used to prevent corrosion, and clean and remove foreign particles from within the systems of your automotive machinery. Some fluids help maintain a safe running temperature (coolant), run the engine (fuel) or keep your line of vision clear (windshield cleaner).

Motor oil protects the internal combustion engine. Brake fluid protects and powers your vehicle’s braking system. Transmission fluid cleans, reduces wear and helps your auto’s transmission system resist corrosion and contamination. Under pressure, power steering fluid transmits power & decreases wear on the steering system. Other fluids used in your vehicle are fuel, coolant, and windshield cleaner.

All of these fluids are essential for receiving peak performance of your vehicle. For maximum reliability and a trustworthy driving experience, it is vital to flush away dirty lubricant, refill them to proper levels and then maintain your vehicle’s fluids. Keeping your automotive fluids topped off and clean, by flush and replacement, is important.

John’s Automotive Care’s ASE Certified technicians are automotive fluid experts! That means that we can help you keep an eagle eye on your car or truck’s fluid levels, and then flush out the old fluids and replace them with fresh, clean fluids.

Engine Oil Professionals at John’s Automotive Care

An oil change is particularly important if you have long intervals between each service or if your mileage is very high. Engine oil lubricates and protects your engine’s internal components by reducing friction between the moving parts. It also carries away dirt and metal particles, keeping the engine clean and free from contaminants.

At John’s Automotive Care, our oil change service includes an oil flush and refill, along with a fresh, clean oil filter. We have designed our service to give you peace of mind, and your engine the cleanest oil it needs. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing your oil every 3,000 miles or so. John’s Automotive Care ensures that you receive the highest quality oil to help keep your car engine in peak condition.

Drivers of diesel running vehicles can come to John’s Automotive Care for an oil change too! It’s as important for diesel engines to have clean oil as it is for a gas engine. While diesels don’t operate at the same temperatures, the oil has to perform the same functions of removing contaminants from the engine, keeping things cool and lubricating all the moving parts.

Power Steering Fluid Expert at John’s Automotive Care in San Diego, CA.

All cars today come equipped with power steering – and there is nothing quite as shocking as the difference in how our vehicle steers when the power steering quits working!

The power to our steer system is transmitted by power steering fluid under pressure. When the fluid becomes low, we experience difficulty in turning the steering wheel. Inside the system, low power steering fluid means the power steering components are under stress and wear.

At John’s Automotive Care our ASE Certified technicians know power steering systems and what it takes to keep them working effectively and efficiently. Most experts recommend that the power steering fluids in most automobiles be flushed and replaced every other year for maximum service and reliability. If your car, truck, van or SUV has low power steering fluid, or the fluid has not been flushed for many miles, bring it in to John’s Automotive Care and we’ll check it for you.
