Now at Franconia Service Center our base oil change is a synthetic blend
but our prices remain the same.
Why Use Synthetic Blend Oil?
76 Super Synthetic Blend Motor Oil is a premium quality, part synthetic,
API SM motor oil designed for use in passenger cars, vans, sports utility
vehicles and light trucks under all operating conditions. It is formulated
to provide excellent wear protection, to minimize engine sludge and varnish
deposits, and to resist viscosity and high temperature thermal breakdown
even in severe service. It also protects against rust, bearing corrosion
and foaming. The part-synthetic formula provides an extra margin of protection
at both low and high temperatures compared with conventional all-mineral
76 Super Synthetic Blend Motor Oil is "energy conserving" for
improved fuel economy, and exceeds new car warranty requirements as defined
by ILSAC GF-4. In addition, it is specifically formulated to help protect
and extend the service life of vehicle emissions control systems.
Appointments are recommended for oil changes, if you desire to wait, to
ensure that your vehicle is returned in a timely manner and allows us to
perform the courtesy check on your vehicle.
We perform visual inspections on your vehicle while it is in for maintenance
or repairs. This lets our customers know the overall condition of their
vehicles and allows them to make an informed decision on how/if to repair
their vehicles. There are times when we recommend not repairing a vehicle
because the repair costs may exceed the value of the car.
MILEAGE INTERVAL SERVICES
We perform mileage interval inspections on your vehicle using your owners’ manual
and/or Mitchell online service guides. After checking the vehicle per your
manual, we will prioritize the items we identify during the inspection.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE SERVICES
The following services are recommended at the listed times or mileages.
These recommendations are intended as preventive maintenance to extend
the life of your car or light truck and help prevent unexpected breakdowns.
They are based solely on time or mileage and not on visual or measurements
BG POWER STEERING FLUSH
When: Every 2 Years or 24,000 miles.
Why: Oxidation by-products, hose material and metallic
debris accumulate in the fluid. As contaminated fluid is pumped through
the system under very high pressure, it causes abrasive wear in the pump
and the rack assembly, leading to premature wear, pump noise, and erratic
BG TRANSMISSION FLUSH
When: Every 2 years or 24,000 miles.
Why: Oxidized fluid and oxidation residues can cause
blockage of oil lines or filter screens. Deposits can also cause malfunction
of delicate shift control mechanisms or even complete transmission failure.
BG INDUCTION/INJECTION SYSTEM FLUSH
When: Every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
Why: Deposits that build up in the fuel induction system
may cause drivability problems such as hesitation, surge, stalling, hard
starting, rough idle and loss of power. Deposits that build up in the
air induction system may cause rough idle, excessive exhaust emissions,
loss of performance and loss of gas mileage.
BG COOLANT SYSTEM FLUSH
When: Flush yearly
Why: When coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients
it becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in coolant system
components, as well as clogging passageways in the radiator, which may
overheat the engine and cause damage beyond repair.
When: 2 Years or 24,000 miles
Why: Flushing the brake system helps to remove deposits,
debris and other contaminates that travel in the brake system and tends
to fall to the lowest point in the system. This helps prolong the life
of calipers, wheel cylinders and the brake master cylinder.
When: Should be checked for alignment every year, should
be aligned minimum every 30,000 miles.
Why: Everyday road shock and general wear and tear can
knock your alignment out of specifications. When that happens, control
of the vehicle may be threatened and the tires may begin to wear unevenly
and rapidly. Note: If your vehicle hits a severe bump or curb alignment
should be checked
