Fort Sill’s Auto Crafts Center has everything for the auto technician. Patrons can do their own car work ranging from oil change and lube to brake and tire work.
34 well-designed, lighted and heated bays, wash bay and a monorail are available. The staff is trained and available to assist and instruct the less experienced patron. The staff mechanics also change oil, fix flats, and air conditioners, or use electronic diagnostic testing equipment to analyze engine problems on an appointment basis.
- Bays and the Tools
- Lube Bays - These bays are for oil and transmission fluid changes, and for vehicle inspection
- Lift Bays - These bays are for oil and transmission fluid changes, vehicle inspections, fuel pump replacement, starter/alternator replacement, brake pads & shoes, etc.
- General Bays - In these bays, you may do just about anything you need to do
- Overhaul Bays - These bays are used for engine or transmission removal and jobs that take more than one day
- Nitrogen Tire Service
The primary result expected from nitrogen inflation is to enhance retention of tire pressure over time. Though inflation with nitrogen is not substitute for regular pressure maintenance, the closer a tire operates near its recommended pressure, the less the penalties of under inflation such as rolling resistance loss, premature wear, and possible damage to the tire from over-deflection (overheating). Additionally, there is a strong scientific basis for concluding that reducing the oxygen content of the inflation gas will reduce the internal thermo-oxidative degradation of the tire, which may aid in retention of long term durability.
Goodyear supports the use of nitrogen, as an inflation gas, in all Goodyear, Dunlop, Kelly, Associate Brand and Private Brand products, based on the ability for a tire to retain pressure for a longer period of time. The use of nitrogen will not affect the tire warranty.
MAST approves the use of nitrogen as the inflation gas for all Michelin, BF Goodrich, Uniroyal, and P/A branded tires and will continue to warranty our products with the use of nitrogen.
- Cooling Systems Flush and Fill
Today’s engines are loaded with aluminum components: cylinder heads, water pumps, manifolds, even engine blocks. The two primary heat exchangers-radiator and heater-are also aluminum. Aluminum needs great corrosion protection to survive, and the corrosion protection in green and red antifreeze is used up in about two years. Orange offers longer life, but if your car came with green or red, you can’t switch to orange without a fair amount of preparation. And if your car is much more than four years old, a switch in not likely to yield long-term coolant life you’d still face the usual two-year drain interval.
- Brake Systems Flush and Fill
Braking systems aren’t indestructible. Parts, like the rubber in the master cylinder valves, calipers and wheel cylinders deteriorate and then flake off to end up in your brake fluid. Plus, the fluid itself can get old and worn out. Moisture can also get in the system and leads to rust, which puts more nasty bits in your brake fluid. All this adds up to a brake system with compromised effectiveness and decreased stopping power.
- Power Steering Systems Flush and Fill
New power steering fluid starts clean and clear but eventually turns dark with age. Varnish and sludge deposits can build up in your power steering system and affect the ease of turning and responsive handling. By flushing out your power steering fluid you remove the sludge and varnish deposits. It is also the best way to remove the tiny metal particles that slowly grind away your power steering internal components such as the power steering hoses, pump, rack and pinion and or gear box.
