BG Services available at DARCARS Toyota of Frederick Service Center
Fuel/Air Induction Service Problem:
Deposits accumulate on intake valves, injectors, ports, fuel injectors and combustion chambers causing loss of power, rough idle, hesitation, misfire, pinging, knocking, mileage and hard starting.Solution:
- Clean plenum and air-intake
- Clean intake valves and ports
- Remove combustion chamber deposits
- Correct balance of fuel and air in system
- Starts and idles smooth and runs quieter
The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve is clogged causing loss of power. If neglected a costly repair bill is imminent.Solution:
Remove EGR valve and attach a specialized tool at the EGR port, where a carbon-attacking chemical eliminates carbon build-up.Recommended service
interval every 2 years or 30,000 miles
Lubrication & Fuel ServiceProblem:
Deposits form in the oil and fuel injectors and combustion chambers over time.Solution:
Eliminate the build-up of fuel and oil deposits between oil changes by installing:
- BG MOA®, a premium engine oil additive with deposit inhibitors
- BG CF5 maintains a clean fuel system by eliminating deposit build-up
High engine temperatures caused by heavy stop and go driving conditions lead to thermal breakdown of engine oil. Not all of the oil is removed during a drain and fill oil change. Deposits are left behind and form sludge and varnish in the engine resulting in smoke from the exhaust and increased oil usage.Solution:
A BG 9800 tool safely and effectively cleans and removes oxidized particles and fluid contamination left behind from previous oil changes. Install new oil and filter along with BG MOA® to fortify new oil for optimum performance and engine protection. The result will be improved engine compression, increased power and increased fuel economy. Recommended service
interval every 4 years or 60,000 miles
Cooling System ServiceProblem:
Coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients and becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in cooling system components. By-products of corrosion damage, as well as rust and scale, clog the passageways that conduct the water through the radiator and choke off the flow. This may result in an overheated engine that may be damaged beyond repair.Solution:
The entire cooling system is first cleaned and then all debris and worn out coolant is completely removed from the system. Then, fresh new premium coolant is added. Conditioners are also included to prevent rust and corrosion and BG Universal Cooling System Sealer is also included to prevent leaks.Recommended service
interval every 2 years or 30,000 miles for regular coolant / 5 years or 90,000 miles for long life coolant
After 30,000 miles, transmission fluid begins to show its age as it turns brown in color and oxidizes due to the combination of time and heat. Deposits begin to form around the transmission's many moving parts, resulting in valves that stick and gears that slip or are sluggish and chatter as they shift.Solution:
Rather than just removing the fluid found in the bottom of the pan, the entire transmission is cleaned and replenished with the use of special equipment. The transmission and its torque converter have all of their old contaminated fluid removed while new fluid and premium conditioners are added.
One of the hardest working parts of your vehicle will shift smoothly and effortlessly for many more trouble-free miles.Recommended service
interval every 2 years or 30,000 miles for regular fluid / 4 years or 60,000 miles for world standard
Drive Line ServiceProblem:
Heat, moisture, extreme pressure and loads cause gear oil to break down or to be contaminated, leading to lubrication failure and worn gears.Solution:
Remove and replace old worn-out lubricant from manual transmissions, front and rear differentials, transaxles, and transfer cases. Install gear oil or the additive package required for vehicle application.
You'll experience smoother gear-shifting, quieter operation and extended component-life, which will reduce major repair costs due to worn gears.
Power Steering ServiceProblem:
The power steering pump produces high pressure between 800-2000 pounds, with high heat. This leads to fluid breakdown and failure.
Symptoms include groaning and whining noises, erratic steering and pump leaks.Solution:
A powerful cleaner suspends and dissolves varnish and gums in the power steering system and then all of the old fluid is replaced with new high-tech power steering fluid for both conventional sector and rack and pinion. The benefit will be a quieter-operating, longer lasting power-steering system.Recommended service
interval every 4 years or 60,000 miles
Brake fluid becomes oxidized and contaminated over time and use. Heat and moisture cause corrosion on parts and brake fluid failure. This causes a spongy brake pedal and shows up in discolored brake fluid.Solution:
The entire brake system is inspected for leaks, master cylinder corrosion, worn pneumatic parts, harmful varnish build-up, broken or rusted bleeder valves, worn rotors and drums and air in the brake lines. All old brake fluid is replaced with BG Heavy Duty DOT 3 or DOT 4 Brake Fluid. The result will be a longer lasting, more efficient and safer braking system.Recommended service
interval every 3 years or 30,000 miles
Climate Control Service
Condensation in your vehicle's air conditioning system promotes fungus,
mold and bacterial growth that is blown into the passenger compartment.
Add to this nauseating smell the sound of an A/C compressor making a
clacking sound due to a depletion of oil.
Clean out the air conditioning lines, evaporator and ventilator and then
kill any bacteria mold or fungi. Then, deodorize the entire A/C system
and the vehicle's interior. Finally, after a complete inspection for
leaks and wear, our technicians will measure and replenish the oil in
the compressor. The air inside your vehicle will be much cleaner and 4
to 5 degrees cooler, thanks to increased efficiency.
Over time corrosion accumulates on the battery posts and terminals to the degree that this build-up begins to drain power from the battery. That's one of the reasons battery failure is the #1 culprit for calls made requesting roadside assistance.Solution:
A battery cleaner and leak detector is applied after a thorough cleaning and inspection. Anti-corrosion BG Battery Terminal Protectors are installed and the battery posts, terminals and case are sealed.
Most vehicles built after the early nineties are equipped with acrylic headlights, which eventually become cloudy from debris that causes abrasions to the lens. Additionally, exposure to weather, pollutants and solar radiation can further diminish the appearance of an otherwise attractive vehicle. But more importantly, it can reduce visibility during night driving. It's a problem that affects nearly every vehicle make and model, foreign or domestic.Solution:
The Class Act Headlight Restoration Service involves a simple process, which includes lightly sanding the surface until the cloudy and discolored surface is removed, then applying a protective sealant. The service restores clarity and improves luminosity. It's completely safe to use and compatible with all headlight components.
