Deferring Your Regular Brake Service and Maintenance

Don’t Defer Your Brake Service and Maintenance

A customer of ours came in a few weeks ago for some service and maintenance and also complained of a brake noise. He had deferred his service and maintenance brake fluid flush several times over the years. These photos are the result of it. Since the system was not maintained, it rusted the brake caliper pistons & brake lines. Due to the rarity of the vehicle, our only option was to rebuild the brake calipers and perform a flush, multiple times, to get the corrosion out of the system.

At the same time, we also performed other deferred service and maintenance. Some items included an axle replacement, upper / lower ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, rear transmission mount, the entire exhaust system, valve cover gasket and a four-wheel alignment.

We advocate on your behalf to perform your maintenance done when it’s due. By doing your service when it’s due, It will prevent further damage to other components. Furthermore, this will cost you much less in the long run. The safety systems in your vehicle are very important to service, which will also keep you safe and avoid any potential breakdowns.

Starting the GT3 RS oil draining procedure.

Today we performed an oil change service on a 2019 GT3 RS supercar. Our customer requested the type of oil we use, which is always in stock for these applications. The oil for this application is Liqui Moly Synthoil 0w40. This oil is used in many high-performance supercars such as 911 Turbos, GT2 and GT3 vehicles.

While we waited for the oil to drain for 20-30 minutes, we inspected for any issues or notable items. We did notice that the tires are getting low on tread and will need to be replaced in the not so near future. Fortunately, this is all we could find and do not see anything to be concerned.

Once we fully drained the oil, we replaced the sump drain plug seal and replaced the factory oil reservoir with an LN Engineering magnetic drain plug for good measure. We always have these in stock. The drain plug will catch any metallic particulates that the filter will not catch. This will keep the oil-free from harmful debris.

After each drain plug was properly torqued and the oil was filled, we topped off all the fluids. We also performed a quick detail on the Porsche to maintain it’s natural beauty.

In the Shop, 1973 Porsche 914

1973 Porsche 914 1.7L

Porsche 914

In the shop this week: This sweet 1973 Porsche 914 1.7L. Our customer brought this In for some much needed maintenance and repair. The car was having issues starting and running rough. After discussing the symptoms with our customer, we knew right away that the ignition switch and ignition coil needed to be inspected tested. We tested the ignition coil with a multi meter and it was producing over four times the resistance it should have been on the terminals and plug wire terminal. We then pulled the ignition switch and sure enough, a big crack down the side. We replaced those with new plug wires, breather and vacuum hoses. Now this Porsche fires up on the first crank every time.

Mercedes Benz SL500 Custom Work

Mercedes Benz SL500 Custom Work

Meister Werks European & Import in Renton, WA, one block south of The Renton Landing did some custom work last week. We worked on this Mercedes Benz SL500. The customer was leaving on a road trip and wanted to get a few things done before the trip.

We installed the customer’s new wheels and tires and lowering arms on the leveling sensors. This allows the car’s factory air suspension to measure the height lower and will set the car at a lower stance. After installing the leveling arms, we did a four-wheel alignment, which make the alignment centered to avoid any excessive wear that occurs after lowering the Mercedes.

We also installed an Ex-Lip Pro kit on the front bumper and side skirts. Quick detail and some tire shine helped the Mercedes Benz look brand new.

When we finished we performed at courtesy thirty-point inspection on the car. We found a few minor things the customer should be aware of. The more critical item was the brake fluid had a moisture content of +4%. The moisture content can never be above 2%, 0% is the best. We informed the customer that he really needed a flush the brake fluid to prevent any damage to the brake master cylinder or brake calipers. Moisture can break down the system, causing corrosion and make the brakes feel spongy.
