State Vehicle Inspection
Allison's Quick Lube is a licensed State Inspection Station.
We change the filter, remove the transmission filter pan, clean the sediment from the pan, and replace the transmission fluid filter. The pan is reinstalled with a new gasket, and the transmission is refilled to the full level on the dipstick. This service replaces the filter and allows us to clean the debris from the pan, but it doesn't replace the fluid in the torque converter and only replaces three to five quarts of fluid on most vehicles.
A Transmission Flush is started by running a chemical cleaner through the transmission. The flush machine is connected to the transmission and cooler lines, and using your transmissions own pump, we flush 16 quarts of new fluid through the transmission completely replacing the old fluid. The service is completed by adding a BG conditioner to enhance the shifting characteristics, dissolve deposits, and help keep seals soft and resistant to leaks. This service replaces all the fluid in the transmission including the torque converter and valve body. It also includes a conditioner to help remove deposits, but it does not replace the filter.
Transmission Flush & Filter
A Full Transmission flush is completed followed by a detailed filter change. Customers should alternate the two services through the life of the transmission. Most transmissions should be serviced every 30,000 miles. Please refer to your owners manual for the service interval on your vehicle.
Full service oil change up to 5 quarts of oil. We check and top off all the fluid levels, check air pressure in the tires, vacuum the interior, and wash the outside of the windows.
Motor Oil Basics
In order for your car's engine to do its job properly, it is vital to have clean, fresh oil. The oil used in your car has two primary ingredients: base oil and additives. The base oil allows the motor oil to perform its vital function - lubricating the engine's moving parts to protect them against wear and tear caused by friction. The additives provide additional engine protection by helping to prevent the oil from deteriorating under the engine's extreme temperature conditions. The base oil is refined from crude (oil in its natural state when pumped from the ground). The crude must undergo a variety of refining processes before yielding base stock suitable for use in engine oil. Undesirable components such as wax, sulphur and nitrogen compounds must be removed. Unsaturated hydrocarbons must be extracted or converted into more stable molecules. Crude is first separated by vacuum distillation into a series of fractions or viscosity ranges. The fractions intended for base oil production are processed further using various combinations of refining processes.

Headlight and Bulb Replacement
Always checked during a full service oil change or call for more information.
Wiper Blade Replacement
Don't forget your wipers. You never know when you will need them.
PCV Valve Change
Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) - A Faulty PCV valve can cause problems including engine stumbles/misfires, rough idle, and even excessive oil consumption.
Your car's radiator and cooling system needs to be clean to be cool. As time goes by, your car's radiator builds solid deposits that can clog the cooling system. A quick radiator flush can keep the system in shape. It's important to change your antifreeze seasonally.
Fuel Injection Cleaning
Removing the buildup of dirt and particles in your fuel system will not only help restore and improve your vehicle's performance and reduce emissions. It will also help improve your gas mileage and overall drivability.
