Never Get Caught With Low Car Fluid Levels

February 26th, 2018 by

There are tons of fluids located throughout your vehicle. If those fluids – motor oil, transmission fluid, coolant, just to name a few – weren’t present, you couldn’t drive it as far as the length of your driveway. Here are a few tips you should follow regarding the levels of fluids in your vehicle – don’t deviate from them, if you enjoy driving.

Engine oil is the lubricant of your car’s engine. If sufficient levels of engine oil are not present, then its internal mechanisms rub together, causing them to rapidly break down. You should have it replaced every 3,000 to 7,000 miles.

Coolant is found in your car’s radiator and should be flushed and replaced every six months, or whenever seasons change in your area. Power steering fluid can be poured in its reservoir, found on the driver’s side under the hood, every month to top it up.
