Engine Oil Flush Service

Engine Oil Flush Service

Why have an engine oil flush service performed on your vehicle?

Friction is the enemy of your engine.

Why is Engine oil vital to your vehicle’s engine?

Your engine can have as many as 200 moving parts. You want all them need to slide smoothly against each other or the consequences can be costly.

To show you why this is so important, take your hand and rub it back and forth along your arm. What do you notice? Very quickly the two surfaces start to heat up because of the friction. Now imagine if there was some sand or grit on the surface of your skin. How long before there was discomfort or damage?

Now apply a lubricant to your skin. Do your fingers glide along much smoother? Is there less heat and friction? This same principle applies to the moving parts of your engine.

Here is what your engine oil does for your engine
Think about all those moving parts, cam shafts, pistons, valves, crankshafts, lifters, rods, etc. All them working together to give you the ability to move your vehicle. Your engine oil not only has to keep every part lubricated it will also needs to prevent excessive heat from building up.

The reason your oil needs regular changing is because with all the work it does, it wears out. The additives that were originally put into the oil to increase its effectiveness have broken down. That’s to be expected. It becomes contaminated with dirt, sludge and possible metal filings. Left unchanged, your oil can go from being a lubricant to an abrasive.

Part of the process of having your engine’s oil changed is to also replace the oil filter. As good as oil filters are they don’t get all the dirt, grit and sludge. Some of it will be trapped in throughout the engine. Your engine is designed with oil galleries that channel the oil to every moving part. When the galleries get plugged with sludge, the oil can’t get to where it’s needed. Two things can happen if the sludge is left in, it will contaminate your new oil and lead to a potentially costly repair to any number of those moving parts.

How do you prevent the potential damage from happening?

We recommend our Engine Oil Flush Service. You know what happens when you flush something. It removes the unwanted materials leaving a clean surface behind. When Car Craft performs an engine oil flush it removes old oil and deposits that a conventional gravity oil change leaves behind.

When you settle for a standard gravity oil change you are not emptying your engine of all the dirty oil. It’s still trapped in different parts of your engine. So your new oil can’t help but be contaminated within minutes of starting your engine. Doesn’t make sense, does it?

Your professionals at Car Craft use TerraClean Engine Oil Cleaner. This very effective product infuses the engine oil with a detergent. This cleans the entire oil system without damaging it. All the contaminants are trapped by the solution and carried away leaving your engine as clean as the day it left the factory.

Do your engine and your pocketbook a favor.
Change your oil on a regular basis. It’s a lot cheaper than paying to have your engine rebuilt or buying a new motor for your vehicle. It’s a fact that a maintained vehicle holds its value longer.

I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you.

Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us.

Minor Fuel System Cleaning

Minor Fuel System Cleaning

 

Why use a Fuel System Cleaner in your vehicle?

 

 

Your Fuel System Fuel injectors deliver fuel to the engine’s combustion chamber by spraying a fine mist on to the back of an intake valve. If you can imagine an aerosol spray can being sprayed multiple times per second in the engine, then you can understand the function of the injector.

However, just like the aerosol can, the injectors can get clogged. Generally by dirt, gums and varnishes from the fuel. When this happens, the spray pattern of the fuel is affected. This means wasted fuel, decreased mileage and decreased performance and engine response.

Typically, due to condensation as much as 4-6 ounces of moisture can build up in a fuel system over time. Water in Fuel causes trouble for the fuel system and reduces lubrication of the engine.

When Car Craft Automotive performs a minor fuel system cleaning, they add TerraClean Optima Fuel System Cleaner to your fuel. This product cleans up the fuel system as you drive. It opens up clogged injectors by removing the gums and varnishes as you drive. As well it improves the atomization of the fuel in your tank and will disperse water that may be present in your gas tank.

Benefits of a Minor Fuel System Cleaning

  • Your fuel system including injectors will be cleaned as you drive.
  • Fuel economy will improve as emissions decrease.
  • Water will be removed from the system, helping to prevent rust and corrosion.

Did you know?

Keeping your fuel system clean can improve your gas mileage. It can save you money and help the environment Ask your Car Craft service adviser for details.

Engine Treatment Service

Engine Treatment Service

Do I need an Engine Treatment Service?

Is an Engine Treatment Service the same as an oil change?

Yes and no. Let us explain.

Yes your engine needs to have its oil changed on a regular basis, now more than ever.

Many people are aware that it is common practice to add ethanol to gasoline. Unfortunately this can be detrimental to your vehicle’s fuel and lubrication systems. When the engine is in operation, some of the ethanol-blended fuel mixture seeps into the crankcase during the combustion process. It shows up in the form of blow-by gases. This becomes problematic when it combines with internal condensation and produces a white sludge material.

Left untreated the water will separate from the oil. Now it’s prone to freezing in cold temperatures and preventing the oil from circulating throughout the engine. This can lead to a major breakdown and costly and unnecessary repairs.

The reality is that Ethanol will be in your fuel for the foreseeable future. The best solution is to treat for it.

We recommend an Engine Treatment Service.

One of the best ways we know of to protect your engine from the potential dangers of ethanol blended fuels is with an engine treatment service. Your engine will get TerraClean Engine Treatment added to your new oil. This excellent product has been proven to reduce friction without affecting catalytic converter operation. Your engine will have increased protection from the unwanted effects of ethanol.  Say goodbye to white sludge in your engine.

Avoid settling for just an oil change.  You want the full benefits of an Engine Treatment Service

At Car Craft we will replace your engine oil with top quality motor oil that specifically designed for the driving you do and conditions your vehicle is exposed to.

A regular oil change doesn’t flush out all the white sludge. So what happens when they add the new oil? It becomes contaminated and your engine is not protected at the level it should be.

What can you expect from a Car Craft engine treatment service?

  • Most people notice an improvement in performance and fuel economy.
  • Peace of mind knowing that your engine and all its moving parts are protected from the white sludge build up that is so common with Ethanol blended fuels.

Protect your engine and your wallet with an Engine Treatment Service from the professionals at Car Craft.
