The fluid levels in your vehicle should be changed on a regular basis. If you are not sure how often this should be, we can advise you on the schedule. Keeping the fluid levels at the right amount will help keep the vehicle operating efficiently. If you ignore checking the fluids in the vehicle, you can cause further damage to parts and other components. You should also be aware if your vehicle is leaking any fluid from your vehicle. When the fluids leak, you will need to refill the reservoir so the vehicle can continue to work properly. This can include the oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid, or even the transmission fluid.
Anytime the oil is changed, the other fluids should be checked as well. As long as the hood is up, the fluid levels should all be inspected and examined to ensure they are in proper condition. The oil change schedule can vary on a few things. This could include how often you drive, where you drive, and what type of roads you drive on. We can advise you on a schedule, or you can check the owner’s manual for your vehicle. Sometimes the oil warning light may come on for the vehicle. When this happens, contact us so you can schedule an appointment as soon as you can.
Remember that some fluids will get old and grimy with time. When this occurs, the fluids will need to be flushed out of the vehicle and replaced with clean new fluid. It will also help pass through the engine and other moving parts. When the fluid is clean, your vehicle will not have to work as hard to run or drive. If you notice anything unusual from your vehicle, make sure to contact us and we can set up an appointment to have a bumper to bumper inspection done for you.
