Engine Air Filter Replacement

Air is drawn into the engine as a critical part of the combustion process. The engine air filter captures airborne contaminants such as dirt, dust and even bugs before they can enter the engine. A dirty, clogged engine air filter can contribute to poor overall engine performance and a loss of up to 10% of your engines performance and fuel economy.

The engine air filter is removed and inspected. If necessary, a new, clean engine air filter is installed.

Cabin Air Filter Replacement

The inside of your car is six times more polluted than the outside air. Many vehicle manufacturers are now equipping cars with cabin air filters. A cabin air filter installed at QuickChange, can block up to 99.5% of the pollutants entering your vehicle. The electrostatically charged filter works like a magnet to stop pollen, dust and other airborne contaminants in their tracks. Replacing your Cabin Air Filter will improve the performance of your heating and air conditioning system and help you breathe more easily.

Why is it important?

Windshield wiper blades are made of a soft rubber compound. Over time, In North East Ohio the mixture of heat, cold and salt  break down that compound and make it brittle. As this happens, your windshield wipers will leave streaks, potentially affecting your ability to see the road ahead and compromising your road safety.

Our Engine Flush services are designed to clean out and remove varying degrees of sludge from inside your engine.

Sludge is the thick, dark substance that is formed when older motor oil reacts with dirt, water, oxygen and extreme high and low temperatures and breaks down and restricts the performance of your engine.

Over time, sludge builds up in an engine and can block vital oil passages inside, preventing motor oil from reaching all areas of the engine. Sludge can also contaminate new oil.

The Engine Flush service removes sludge from the engine to ensure proper engine lubrication.

Automatic Transmission Fluid lubricates cools and cleans components of your vehicle’s transmission.

$89.99 (up to 8 qts)

Replacing automatic transmission fluid is a preventative maintenance service for most vehicles. Our Automatic Transmission Exchange removes virtually 100% of your vehicle’s old Automatic Transmission Fluid and replaces it with fresh, new fluid.

FLUSH

$119.99 (up to 10qts)

Replacing automatic transmission fluid is a preventative maintenance service for most vehicles. Our Automatic Transmission Flush removes and cleans 100% of your vehicle’s old Automatic Transmission Fluid and replaces it with fresh, new fluid as well as cleans out the vehicles Transmission filter element.

The effectiveness of Automatic Transmission Fluid can decline by 46% between 30,000 & 50,000 miles. That’s why most manufactures recommend this service be completed between 30,000 & 50,000 miles – sooner if you use your vehicle for towing or severe service. Refer to your vehicle’s owner manual for recommended service intervals.

Power Steering Flush – $49.99

Compared to other systems of a vehicle, the Power Steering system uses a relatively small quantity of fluid to perform a tremendous amount of work. For this reason, Power Steering fluid deteriorates over time and becomes contaminated. Our Power Steering Flush cleans the power steering system, removing sludge and contaminates, and replaces the old fluid with new. This helps to ensure proper protection and lubrication of the Power Steering components.

The Power Steering Flush is a preventative maintenance service designed for power steering systems with contaminated fluid or when the fluid has not been changed for three years or 30,000 miles.  Many manufacturers are recommending this as normal scheduled maintenance.

We provide new washer fluid or winter washer fluid at no added cost.

 

Window de-icer is available as supply lasts per store.

 

When an air conditioning system loses its ability to cool properly, it may be necessary to recharge the system. Below covers how to recharge the A/C system when the system is low on pressure or has been vacuumed out following a repair.
Note: Always wear safety glasses and gloves when charging the A/C system.

1. Determine ambient air temperature.

If the temperature of the air is 55° or below, do not charge the vehicle. It is recommended to use a charging hose with a gauge. The refrigerant packaging should contain a chart for determining what pressure to charge the system depending on the ambient air temperature. (If no chart is provided, use the chart in this guide). Following the chart when recharging the system will ensure that the system will operate efficiently.

2. Locate the low-side service port.

This port is typically found on the line connecting the accumulator and compressor. The high side fitting is located between the compressor and condenser. Consult the service manual to verify the exact location of the low-side service port.

*Most 1994 and older vehicles used R12 as the original refrigerant, if the vehicle being serviced is still using R12, it must be evacuated and retrofitted. Mixing R12 and any other refrigerant is illegal. Never use the high-side port to add refrigerant, doing so is very dangerous and could cause harm.

3. Wipe away any dust with a clean rag and then remove the cap from low-side service port.

4. Attach the charging hose to the low-side service port and ensure that you have a secure connection.

If the hose does not attach easily you may be using the wrong port.

5. Following the instructions on the refrigerant package, add refrigerant to the system.

6. After determining the correct pressures using the ambient air pressure chart, monitor the pressure readings constantly while charging the system.

7. After the air conditioning system is charged to the proper pressure, remove the charging hose from the low-side service port leaving the can attached to the charge hose and store any additional refrigerant in a dry cool spot.

8. Check the service port cap seal before reinstalling.

Ensure that the seal beneath the cap does not have any cracks, nicks, or tears. This seal can be added protection if the Schrader valve ever formed a leak.

PROCEDURE

  1. It is best to purchase the Haynes manual – Automotive Heating & Air Conditioning for use while performing the job.

  2. Have any refrigerant still in the system recovered by a certified A/C Technician.

  3. Disassemble the system by removing all the components including the hoses.

  4. Flush components that will be reused. Use an A/C Flush Kit and solvent. The instructions for properly flushing the system are included with the kit.

    • Condensers that have a parallel tube system cannot be properly flushed and should be replaced.

    • When flushing any component pay attention to the flow of solvent and air exiting the component. If the flow is restricted there may be an obstruction, try reversing the flow and if unsuccessful, replace the part.

  5. Replace o-rings and Schrader valves on components being reused.

  6. Reassemble the system. The instructions or notices with the new compressor should inform you if the compressor already contains oil. If not, consult the Haynes: A/C manual for proper type, weight, quantity, and procedure for adding oil.

    • *A good practice would be to add a UV dye to help with diagnosing any potential leaks in the future, as well as aid in lubrication.

    • **Install the accumulator or receiver-drier last. Do not remove the plugs on this component until immediately ready for installation, the desiccant bag within will begin absorbing moisture immediately.

  7. Double check that all fittings, mounts, and electrical connections are secure.

  8. Attach manifold gauges and vacuum pump and apply 29 in/Hg of vacuum for 45-60 minutes to remove all moisture and air from the system.

    • * After applying vacuum, switch the vacuum pump off and let the system sit under vacuum for 30 minutes and check vacuum gauge to ensure there are no leaks.

  9. Consult the A/C repair manual for required quantity of refrigerant or ask the experts at Costa Oil -10 Minute Oil Change. Start vehicle and turn the air conditioning on the coldest settings and blower fans on high then introduce refrigerant into the system. Consult the manual for proper low-side and high-side pressures. It is important to follow the instructions that account for outside air temperatures and altitude etc. Filling to the specific pressure and quantity are very important for efficient and safe operation of your air conditioning system. See the chart above for reference.

brake SUPPORT AND inspection

If you’re looking for a brake service and inspection, look no beyond Firestone Complete Auto Care, where we provide free brake checks seven days per week, all year long. Bring your automobile in and our tire as well as auto service professionals will execute a free brake check service which includes:

Measurement of front and back brake pad wear

Measurement associated with rotor wear

Measurement of drum put on

Strip dip brake fluid check

E-brake inspection

During your free of charge brake check, we’ll determine in case your vehicle needs any further brake support, such as:

Installation of brand new brake pads or shoes

Resurfacing or even replacement of brake rotors or even drums

brake fluid change

brake blood loss

Replacement of brake lines, hoses along with other brake components

brake FLUID change

With time, brake fluid can become contaminated as moisture accumulates. Most brake components contain copper so when copper is exposed to dampness, it begins to erode. Because brake components erode, particles can start to contaminate the brake fluid – which means it’s time for the brake fluid change. During your own free brake check, a tire and Auto Support Professional will inspect and execute a strip dip brake fluid test to determine if you want a brake fluid change. When the strip dip brake fluid tests reveals that the brake fluid is contaminated then it’s time for any brake fluid change.

brake BLeeding

The need for brake bleeding arises when air enters your brake fluid line. The introduction of air to the brake fluid can be the result of a leak, overrunning of the grasp cylinder, or simply from having had recent work done in your brakes. If air has created its way into your brake liquid line, it causes your brake pedal to possess a soft, spongy feeling when you press down onto it. If you are experiencing this particular when braking, you may need brake bleeding to fix the problem.

Frequently asked questions

queen: how much air should i place in my tires?

One of the biggest mistakes people make would be to set the air pressure in the tires in line with the sidewall of the tire. You’ll find the proper tire pressure for the tires on the decal (placard) on the driver’s side doorjamb. Please observe that your placard may be positioned in your glove box.

Q: among my front tires has the bald spot, but the tires are just a year old. Why might this happen?

Uneven tire wear could be caused by too much or not enough air pressure, problems with position or balancing, or problems along with steering or suspension. We’ll be happy to have a look so we can help your new tires last considerably longer.

Q: do i really require a separate set of snow tires in the event that my car has all-weather tires?

Snow tires are made to handle harsh winter climate, and they have the gather to conquer icy hills as well as abrupt, unexpected stops. The decision is often a matter of how often a person drive in true winter problems, although we recommend that you always err quietly of caution.

Q: can driving within the snow in regular (non-snow) tires harm my tires?

Snow tires possess a special rubber compound that retains them flexible when temperatures decrease, unlike their all-season or summer time counterparts, which tend to stiffen in cold temperature.

Q: i drove over the nail and had my tire appropriately repaired. Is it dangerous they are driving on a repaired tire?

So long as the tire was repaired towards the rubber manufacturer’s association (rma) standards – which is the only method we repair tires at midas – you ought to be good to go. Rma says to correct a flat tire if: 1) the actual puncture is ¼ inch or even smaller; 2) it is on the tread (not the sidewall); and 3) it doesn’t overlap by having an existing tire repair.

Q: how often must i rotate my tires?

According to many maintenance schedules, tires should end up being rotated with every oil change. Examine your owner’s manual, or the local midas service technician can let you know the exact tire rotation time interval to follow along with.

Q: why does my tpms light continue? The tire looks fine in my experience, and my car is merely a year old.

If your tires tend to be under- or over-inflated, the tpms (tire pressure checking system) activates the warning light in your dashboard. When the light is actually steady, it means you must have your tire pressure checked. When the light is flashing, it means you must have your tpms checked.

Q: how do i tell if i need brand new tires?

If you notice the following, it’s probably time: 1) unequal tire wear, 2) cracking or even bulging tire treads or sidewalls, 3) anything poking to the tire, 4) tread pulling from the body of the tire or even 5) worn treads that don’t move the penny test.

Q: how do you use a penny to determine after i need new tires?

Stick anything in the tire tread, best first. If the tread doesn’t contact lincoln’s head, your tires are worn and likely have to be replaced

q: my car sometimes shudders when i’m going faster than 40 mph. Personally i think like it’s my tires, but i simply put air in them. Are you able to help?

We’ll know for sure following a quick inspection at your nearby midas store, but based in your description, it sounds like you will need to have the balance of the tires and suspension checked.

Examine and inflate

while performing the rotation, costa oil – 10 minute oil change® oil technicians also inspect your tires for uneven wear which may be signs of improper inflation, or even of worn or misaligned suspension components, and may recommend related services when they spot a problem. The service also includes the tire-pressure check and inflation (or deflation) to put you back on the highway with properly inflated tires.

Please be aware: not all costa oil – 10 minute oil change® support centers offer all tire rotation providers. Please call ahead to ensure the services can be found. Find your costa oil – 10 minute oil change right now.
