Conventional or Synthetic Oil ?

Modern engines are designed for friction reductions plus precision tight clearances to yield greater efficiency and more power. Most engine wear occurs at start-up, which is at low temperature, so it's critical that engine parts receive proper lubrication as soon as possible--hence the need for a thinner viscosity. But sustained high speed operation, like on the local mountain highways, demand high viscosity to maintain proper lubrication. Unlike Conventional mineral oils that are produced by distillation and further refining of existing crude oil stock, synthetic lubricants are made through chemical reactions. These new oils still have the same natural ingredients found in "real" oil but they are recombined like a Lego set to yield synthesized-hydrocarbon molecular chains with desirable characteristics and uniformity not found in even the highest-quality conventional motor oils. Because synthetic oil's molecules are much more consistent in size and shape, they are better able to withstand extreme engine temperatures. By contrast, the unstable molecules in conventional oil can easily vaporize or oxidize in extreme heat. Full Synthetic oil is capable of protecting engines at well over 400 degrees F. Because full synthetic oil is chemically produced, there are no contaminants in it. By contrast, conventional oils contain small amounts of sulfur, wax, and asphaltic material that can promote detonation as well as varnish and sludge buildup. With no wax, synthetics will flow at much lower temperatures than conventional oils. There are 5W-30 conventional and synthetic oils, but even here, the synthetic has a real-world advantage: 5W-30 will pump at -58-degrees F, compared to about -35-degrees F for a conventional oil. Your car’s manufacturer is always the best source for the oil specification as they designed the engine. However, typically there is a disclaimer such as “under normal operating conditions”. You may choose to upgrade oil service to prolong the life of your vehicle if you are usually operating your vehicle under the following conditions:

  • Extreme low temperatures
  • Heavy loads
  • Towing a trailer
  • Frequent starts and shorts trips
  • High Speed mountainous driving

Brakes

Brake pads, shoes, and rotors should be inspected somewhere between 20,000 and 60,000 miles depending on the pads and the type of driving you do. Check your car's owner's manual for a specific number.  We rely on our brakes to keep us safe on the road, so quick response is critical. If your brakes are too worn, you may not be able to stop in time to avoid an accident. If you invest in regular brake maintenance, you can drive with confidence.

Brake Pads ideally are replaced before they are so thin that other components like rotors and calibers are damaged.  This will require a detailed inspection when the wheels are off, which we will do when you have a routine tire rotation or brake inspection at the Gunny Lube.

Rotors will need to be replaced by 70,000 miles on most vehicles, but it depends on use. Rotors, like brake pads, should be replaced in pairs for even stopping performance. The Front or Rear pair needs to be replaced especially if grooves are worn into either rotor by the brake pads.

Brake calipers should be replaced only when needed.

Fluid System Services

Fuel System Service

Our Fuel System Service is a three-step process that removes deposits from the entire fuel & air intake system, restoring power, performance, and fuel economy. Deposits in the fuel system reduce fuel economy, impair drivability, and interfere with the proper operation of an engine. Deposits are a by-product of the engine's internal combustion process and need to be removed on a regular basis. Utilizing a 3-step process, our Fuel System Service removes deposits from the entire fuel & air intake system including: fuel injectors, intake valves, and combustion chambers, throttle body and entire air intake system.
Helps to:

3
  • Restore maximum power and performance.
  • Eliminate rough idle, hesitation, and knocking.
  • Reduce emissions caused by deposits.
  • Restore engine efficiency and fuel economy.

Power Steering Flush

Our Power Steering Flush Service helps to provide optimal steering efficiency and extend the life of the power steering components. Power steering fluid is one of the most overlooked automotive system fluids in a vehicle. Power steering fluid loses effectiveness over time, risking steering system performance and ultimately failure that may cost $1,000 or more.

Transmission Flush

Our Automatic Transmission Flush Service helps maintain proper shifting characteristics and prolong the life of your transmission, which may easily exceed $2,500 in repair costs. Ninety percent of transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination. Conventional transmission services remove only a small portion of the contaminated fluid from the system. Leftover fluid contaminates the new fluid, causing new deposits to form more quickly. These deposits reduce the ability of the fluid to cool properly, lending itself to further breakdown, overheating, and ultimately transmission failure.

Cooling System Flush

Our Cooling System Flush Service helps extend the life of the cooling system components, keeps the entire system clean, and functioning as efficiently as possible by starting with a treatment to dissolve deposits and scale. Cooling system failures are the leading cause of mechanical breakdown on the road according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. - Antifreeze/Coolant gradually loses its protective qualities, allowing corrosion and deposits to form. This build-up chokes off the flow of the coolant and may lead to overheating, freeze ups in winter, breakdown and/or costly repairs which may exceed $2,000.
