Coolant System
Your cooling system has the important job of maintaining your engine at a constant temperature whether the outside air temperature is 110 or 10 below 0. If the engine temperature is too low, the fuel economy will suffer and emissions will rise. If the temperature are too hot for too long, the engine will self destruct. With the extra loads, we put on newer engines the importance of maintaining the cooling system has increased. Through many cycles of heating up and cooling down the fluid in the cooling system will slowing create scale and sediment that reduces the efficiency of the system to cool the engine properly. The only way to truly clean the cooling system to keep it in the top-performing condition is to power flush the system. When your mechanic uses a power flush machine to clean your cooling system he will backflush the system, or in other words, he will flush a cleaning solution through the system in reverse from its normal flow. This cleans the system more effectively by loosening and flushing out the scale and sediment. For regular maintenance, it's fine to just add a little antifreeze to your coolant tank to top it off. At regular intervals, your cooling system will need to be flushed and refilled by a professional. Check with our service writers for the proper mileage for this service on your car.

Transmission Service
Your transmission needs servicing at regular intervals. See your owners manual for the specific mileage interval for your car or just ask one of our service writers. Automatic transmissions use fluid pressure to spin the drive shaft and a series of friction bands, disc and plates that get squeezed together with fluid pressure to change gears. To make a smooth shift a certain amount of slippage is built into the friction pack as the transmission shifts gears. This little bit of slippage and the high temperatures create grit that gets caught in the filter or collects in the oil pan. Because the transmission operates totally on fluid pressure in has a lot of lines, reservoirs, and channels to direct the fluid. If you just change your fluid, a lot of old fluid with dirt and grit in it will remain in these areas and you will only be adding some clean transmission fluid to a lot of old dirty transmission fluid. The only way to really clean out all the old dirty fluid and the reusable filter is to replace your transmission fluid using a transmission flush machine. Using the flush machine pushes the old dirty fluid through the system replacing it with clean fluid. At Bowles Automotive we offer complete transmission care from a complete fluid flush to more in deapth repairs and replacement. Important Notice: If you decide to add transmission fluid to your vehicle yourself be very careful to use the correct transmission fluid for your car. Using the wrong fluid can harm your transmission. Never add any type of oil or hydraulic fluid.
