Brake Fluid Flush

Cooling System Flush

Cooling System Flush

BG Products - SW Houston Auto Repair - Car Maintenance Shop - BG Products Brake Fluid Service

Problem: Brake fluid becomes oxidized and contaminated over time and use. Heat and moisture causes corrosion on parts and brake fluid failure. This causes a spongy brake pedal and shows up in discolored brake fluid.

BG Products - SW Houston Auto Repair - Car Maintenance Shop - BG Products Cooling System Flush

 Problem: Coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients and becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in cooling system components. By-product of corrosion damage, as well as rust and scale, clog the passageways that conduct the water through the radiator and choke off the flow. This may result in overheated engine that may be damaged beyond repair. 

Power Steering

Cooling System Flush

Transmission Services

BG Products - SW Houston Auto Repair - Car Maintenance Shop - BG Products Power Steering Fluid Flush

Problem: The power steering pump produces high pressure between 800 - 2,000 pounds, with high heat. This leads to fluid breakdowns and failure. Symptoms include groaning and whining noises, erratic steering and pump leaks. Oxidized fluids stop protecting the unit and steering can become erratic and gears may make grinding noises.

Transmission Fluid Flush, Trans Auto Drain and Fill, Trans Fluid Exchange, Transmission Service

Ignoring the transmission service could have serious consequences in the future. Problem: Transmission fluid over time degrades and stops cleaning and protecting the hundreds of moving parts.  It is important to service the transmission whether with a drain and fill service, fluid exchange, ATF filter replacement or the full flush.  One of the most expensive and hardest working systems in your vehicle is the automatic transmission system.

Differential Fluid Flush, Differential Drain and Fill, Differential Exchange, Differential Service

Problem: Heat, moisture, extreme pressure and loads cause gear oil to break down or to be contaminated, leading to lubrication failure and worn gears.  The drive line transfers the power from the engine and transmission to the wheels. Overtime gear oils break down and become contaminated. This leads to lubrication failure, worn gears, deposit formation, and major repair costs.

SW Houston Auto Repair - Car Maintenance Shop - Standard Oil Change

Motor oil is used for lubrication of internal combustion engines. Ignoring or prolonging oil changes without the proper additives can cause severe engine deterioration and damage. Oil's functions include:

  1. Protects corrosion inhibitors  
  2. Reduces friction
  3. Removes impurities
  4. Cools the engine

The cheapest form of mechanical insurance is to do your oil changes on time!

BG Ethanol Defender Fuel Service

BG Ethanol Defender Fuel Service

BG Ethanol Defender Fuel Service

BG Products - SW Houston Auto Repair - Car Maintenance Shop - BG Products Fuel System Drier

Problem: Ethanol attracts, absorbs and holds water. When enough water is absorbed, the ethanol and water mixture will separate from the gasoline and settle to the bottom of the tank. If this separation occurs, the fuel is rendered useless and must be drained. This moisture causes corrosion in the fuel system and at worst, could cause serious engine damage .

Transfer Case Fluid

BG Ethanol Defender Fuel Service

BG Ethanol Defender Fuel Service

Transfer Case Fluid Service - Transfer Case Drain and Fill - Houston Auto Repair - Fluid Exchange

The transfer case helps transfer the power to the front and rear axles and is filled with a special fluid or gear oil. Problem: Overtime this fluid breaks down and stops lubricating the many internal moving parts. Serious problems can arise such as difficulty shifting, loud grinding noises from under vehicle, and inability to stay in four wheel drive.

Many transfer cases are located next to the exhaust system, this additional heat can add to a more accelerated break down. As the main goal of the transfer case is to "transfer" power from the transmission to the front and rear axles very serious problems can arise when ignored such as difficulty shifting gears due to leaking seals, grinding noises coming from underneath the vehicle, and jumping in and out of four-wheel drive. 


Recommended: Every 15,000 to 60,000 depending on vehicle manufacturer, driving habits or as needed per inspection results. 

Fluid leak Inspection Process

Steam Cleaning Process Not Just for Aesthetic Purposes

It is important to catch fluid leaks before they become serious and put you at risk of engine fire. 


During the steam cleaning process, a Professional Auto Care certified technician will clean the affected area(s) so the leak can be monitored and the severity recorded. In many cases, the client will be asked to return within a week or two in order to better see if any other additional smaller leaks are also present. 


Many times leaks are not alone. When a serious leak is fixed, other smaller leaks may appear. This is important to note so that clients can know and keep track of the system that has the highest risk of major system damage and be sure to check that system's fluid more frequently. 


Sometimes there are a number of leaks in a system but they are all very minor and will not result in immediate system damage. It is only possible to know the extent of the leaks when the engine is clean. That is why steam cleaning is so important. It is not always cost effective to fix a leak as soon as it is found so keeping an eye on the leak(s) and fixing them once they are more severe is the best way to avoid major system failure.
