Most people know how important changing your oil is on a regular basis, but there are other crucial fluids your car needs that we can help you with at our Millville service center.
Brake fluid is to your brakes as your oil is to your engine. That being said, brake fluid often does not get the attention it needs. Your car’s brake fluid is what allows your brakes to consistently run smoothly and operate reliably. You should check your brake fluid levels if you notice your brake pedal start to feel soft when you press on it. Each car brand is different, but you will need to change out your brake fluid every 20,000 to 45,000 miles.
The purpose of transmission fluid is to lubricate and cool the transmission to prevent damage. Over time, this fluid will diminish and need to be replaced. You should check the color of your transmission fluid to determine if the supply is good; a red color is a good indication, while a brown color is a warning sign. In general, cars need to have their transmission fluid replaced every 30,000-60,000 miles, depending on the brand.
The coolant in your car is what helps dispel heat from your engine, keeping your car from overheating and being subject to damage. Pay attention to your owner’s manual as each brand varies widely with how often coolant flushes are recommended. In any case, check your coolant fluid to look for any signs of rusting, such as a murky brown color.
