Check the Fluids for your Car Before Driving

by | Nov 15, 2019 | Car Care Tips, fluid, Fluids, Preventing


Make sure to check all the fluids for your vehicle before you drive or take a long trip. This way, you can help ensure that they are at the proper amount needed to help keep your vehicle running efficiently. If there is one that goes low, often, it can be a sign of a leak in the system. You will want to make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can properly inspect it for you. If you are not sure when the regular maintenance for it should be, you can contact us. With a proper schedule, any issues that might be starting to form can be caught quickly to avoid any other problems.


Check the Brake Fluid

The brake fluid will need to be inspected, especially if you notice brake issues. This is because the fluid helps the brakes work efficiently. If you are having problems with how quick the brake pedal responds, make sure that you schedule an appointment. We can check the brake pads, rotors, and the fluid of the vehicle as well. If there is a leak in the system, the hoses should be checked and replaced if needed. Also be aware if there is a puddle under the vehicle after you parked. This will be an indication of a leak in the vehicle as well.


You should follow each fluid change recommendation, including the oil. The oil will need to be fresh and clean to help keep the engine running efficiently. If the oil is old, then the engine has to work harder. This will cause extra strain and stress on the parts. It will also result in them needing to be replaced sooner than they otherwise should. Without oil, the engine can seize up and fail completely. This will result in a costly repair bill as well.
