CV Axle Replacement

What to Do When Your ATV’s CV Joints Fail ?

FOUZIS SERVICE CENTRE    A description of the parts that need to be checked and/or replaced when you change your ATV CV joint; and how to do it right for the most cost-effectiveness.

We’ve all been there. You know that dreaded clicking and popping sound during a turn or while under load that causes you to realize that your ATV CV joints are done for. They need to be replaced but make sure you also check your CV boots for looseness, cracks or tears.

Damaged CV boots are a pretty good indication that dirt or water has mixed in with your grease – if it hasn’t all leaked out. Torn outer ATV CV joints can also be hard on your wheel bearings because dirt or water probably has leaked in or grease has leaked out and the bearings have been run dry.

Here are some things you need to remember when you change your ATV CV joint:

• Check for loose, torn or cracked boots
• Check to see how much grease is left
• Having grease does not guarantee that it hasn’t been contaminated by dirt or water
• Check bearings for: scoring, noise or rough operation
• Replace bearings if they show signs of wear, damage or rust
• Always replace boots and hardware when you change your ATV CV joint
• Check your axles for wear at this time

This will ensure that you only have to do the job once. It may cost more up front but it will save you time, money and hassle in the long run. Always use a high-quality new replacement CV joint and heavy-duty replacement boot. This will insure that you will have many more miles of trouble-free riding.

If you want to use recondition , or used cv joint checked first before you fitted. Just one question here for you : How long you going to drive your car with such parts ?. Don’t pay twice for same parts .

If you have a tight budget, shop around. Call a few service centers or car repair mechanics and find out what kind of prices they charge. Some mechanics charge by the hour and others charge a flat fee for the work. Some car specialists charge reasonable fees; you can save a lot of money if you shop around until you find the best price. In addition, keep in mind that some shops can give you used parts for a cheaper price, so talk to someone about this option if you do not have a lot of money.

Oil Change Service

Oil Change Service Interval Recommendations

FOUZIS SERVICE CENTRE       Many car manufacturers have extended the oil change service interval mileage and this has caused                                                                           many questions from our clients as to what the correct oil change interval should be.

Modern oils have increased engine life and protect other vital components better than ever and many engines are now coming with change intervals as high as 12,000 kilometers. These kind of service intervals do not come without some concerns for us based on our experience servicing thousands of cars every year.

We believe every vehicle should be serviced at least twice a year or every 7,000 km during its first 100,000 km and every 5,000 k for cars over 100,000 km regardless of the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations (unless the manufacturers recommended mileage is less) and the reasons are outlined below:

1. Engines still consume oil and running out of oil is catastrophic to the engine, most people never check their oil, and we see engines several litres low on oil ALL the time. Waiting another thousand kilometers may have run them completely empty.

2. Engines consume more oil as the mileage gets higher, therefore our change in recommendations at 100,000 km

3. Changing the oil frequently will prolong the engines life.

4. Clean oil will prolong oil seals life by keeping them soft and prevent leaks

5. Dirt, moisture and other contaminants build up in oil just as fast as they used to, and can cause drastic consequences if left in the engine too long.

6. No two cars are driven exactly the same way and the extended intervals are based on ideal conditions, that many of our cars never see.

7. Most vehicles only get a maintenance inspection when the oil is being changed, inspection of filters and items that wear with age, twice a year is our recommendation to keep your car safe and reliable.

8. Vehicle manufacturers are in the business of selling new cars, every car that lasts beyond 150,000 km is one lest vehicle sold. We see many cars with well over 300,000 km on them and performing great. These vehicles have one thing in common: they have been well maintained.

Regardless of whether you choose to use our recommendations or those of your car manufacturer we respect the choice you make as long as it’s an informed one. Diesel engines and some European luxury cars will have different recommendations, always consult with your automotive service provider if you have any questions about your car’s engine.
