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.

Meister Werks European & Import is located one block south from The Renton Landing in Renton, WA, across the street from The Boeing Store and on the westside of the Paccar / Kenworth plant.

2019 GT3 RS Supercar Service

Starting the GT3 RS Supercar oil draining procedure.

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.

GT3 RS Door Sills Lights

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.

1981 Delorean DMC-12 Project

A few months ago our customer brought in his 1981 Delorean DMC-12 for an alignment. After we completed the alignment we found many items that needed replaced and repaired. These items included hard starting, faulty suspension parts and a few leaks. The customer also complained of a parasitic draw and that his battery was constantly dying. Since he doesn’t drive the vehicle that much, we thought maybe it was lack of driving the vehicle. He informed us that the battery would die over night and that he had to bring the battery inside and leave it on the charger so he could start the car. We informed him that we can isolate the draw and repair the other items on his inspection list that we found. We are well versed in Delorean DMC-12 repair and have the factory repair manuals for this vehicle.


Our customer contacted us about a week later and set up an appointment to get these items repaired. Below are photos of the wiring issues we found and corrected. The issue was actually not Delorean DMC-12 related at all. It was the alarm system. The system that was installed had a radio receiver for remote start. This system sayed on all the time and what was draining the battery. Furthermore, the system was not installed properly. The previous installer used electrical tape to make connections and many of them were not connected. This could also be why the car would not start.

When we diagnosed the starting system and found the ignition coil was faulty. An after market coil booster had been installed. Our advise to our customer was to remove both remote start, coil booster and replace the ignition coil. We advised this because the ohm specifications were more than double of what they should be. Luckily we have the ignition coil readily available though our parts supplier and were able to get the part on the same day. Stay tuned for further updates on this project.

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.

Air Suspension Refresh – Evo X

Last night we finished a air suspension refresh for this customer’s previous air ride install. Although we did not do the initial install, we fixed many problems with the old install. We resealed and trimmed all the leaky air lines and fixtures. Then we cleaned up the routing. We also made a custom base for the components to mount to. We finished that off with some fresh carpet. Previously they were screwed directly to the vehicle’s spare tire well causing an excessive amount of vibration and noise. We also stripped the spray painted tank to bare metal, prepped and powder coated it in house with Super Durable Wet White powder. To finish it off we rotated the compressors so they would not come in contact with the false floor that was previously made. Over all the noise reduction was at a minimum 20db less. We believe it turned out looking much cleaner, safer and functional than it was before.
