Engine Oil

CHECK EVERY 3 MONTHS OR 3000 MI

Brake Fluid

Technician Notes

Our inspection showed that your brake fluid is contaminated with high levels of copper and moisture. We recommend a Brake Fluid Flush every 30,000 miles or every other year. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture. Contaminated brake fluid can cause multiple brake and ABS component failures which can become very costly.

Recommendation

Brake flush is required at this time. The brake fluild tested to have high levels of contaminates.

CHECK EVERY 24 MONTHS OR 30000 MI

Power Steering System

Technician Notes

Our inspection showed your vehicles Power Steering Fluid is very dirty. Contaminated fluid can cause power steering pump and or power steering rack & pinion failure which can result in a loss of steering ability. Power steering system is under Constant High Pressures and Lots of heat is created under pressure. The fluid oxidizes (turns dark in color) and breaks down causing power steering system and seal failures.

Recommendation

We recommend a power steering fluid flush every 30,000 miles or every other year to condition seals and provide smooth operation.

CHECK EVERY 24 MONTHS OR 30000 MI

Under Hood Leaks

Technician Notes

Valve cover gasket is showing signs of break down and is leaking engine oil. Engine valve cover and valve cover gasket are used to seal in oil and keep dirty out of the vlavetrain. Each cylinder head has a valve cover.

Recommendation

I would recommend to reseal the top valve covers and intake manifold

Other under hood problems

Under Car / Brakes / Suspension / alignment

Inspect Brakes

CHECK EVERY 6 MONTHS OR 6000 MI

Inspect Front Suspension

Technician Notes

The front shocks are showing signs of leakage. The shock is filled with oil. When the oil leaks out the strut fails to work properly and absorb road shock. The tire fails to maintain proper road contact while hiting bumps.

Recommendation

Recommend replacing leaking shocks

CHECK EVERY 6 MONTHS OR 6000 MI

Inspect Rear Brakes

CHECK EVERY 9 MONTHS OR 9000 MI

Inspect Rear Suspension

Technician Notes

Rear shocks are leaking too

Recommendation

During our inspection we noticed that you shock absorbers are worn. Shock absorbers help dampen vertical motion; they help release the energy built up in the car's springs. Worn rear-shocks can cause fluid leakage, bottoming out, excessive bouncing after coming to a stop and "clunking" noises over bumps.

CHECK EVERY 3 MONTHS OR 30000 MI
