Auto Hydraulic Service
Auto hydraulics are equipment installed in an automobile that allows for an adjustment of the height of your vehicle. You may have heard of lowriders, or cars that can drive very low to the ground. Lowriders are most often seen in movies, television shows and music videos, but can also be seen on the streets of St. Catharines, Fonthill, Jordan, Lincoln, and Niagara Falls. Although they have a cool look, the problem with having a lowrider is that it is tough to drive on speed bumps and rough roads. To conquer these problems, lowrider drivers of Toyota, Honda, Ford, and Hyundai cars install hydraulic lift kits that allow the adjustment of the height of their lowrider.
Hydraulic systems all follow one basic principle: Force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point using an incompressible fluid. A simple hydraulic system consists of two pistons and an oil-filled pipe connecting them. If a downward force is applied to one piston, the force is transmitted to the other piston through the oil in the pipe. Because the fluid is incompressible, this force works very efficiently. The pipe in these hydraulic systems can be any length, and can snake and twist through any machine, which is why hydraulic systems are used on small and large machines alike, including bulldozers, fork lifts, and cranes. The force the hydraulic system exerts can also be multiplied, making the machine even more powerful. If your car needs an auto hydraulic service, you can come to Boyd Automotive & Tire in St. Catharines. In addition to auto hydraulic service, we also offer services in oil changes, fluid services and tune-ups, oil changes, fluid services and tune-ups, scheduled maintenance, and transmission repair.
