Remember to Inspect the Fluids

On a regular basis, make sure to have the vehicle’s fluids checked and changed if necessary.

The oil is essential to help the engine run efficiently. It is also critical to long performing motor life. Make sure to bring your vehicle on a regular basis so that the oil can be changed. This can help provide the best-conditioned oil for your vehicle as you drive. It is also important to have the oil filter changed as well. The filter will collect any contaminants that are in the oil, before it passes to the engine.



Anti-freeze is designed to prevent your vehicle from overheating in the summer, as well as prevent it from freezing up in the winter. If you wait to long to inspect or change the anti-freeze, the used coolant can harm the system of your vehicle. This can result in it not performing the way it should. If you are unsure about the condition of the anti-freeze, make sure to bring your vehicle in.




An important fluid to inspect is the transmission fluid. Bring your vehicle in and we can inspect it or change the fluid, depending on the condition. It is important to have this done on a regular schedule, which we can help set you up with. Research has shown that ninety percent of transmission failures are caused by it overheating. Most of these can be blamed on fluid that has been worn out and should have been replaced.




The power steering fluid should also be inspected on your vehicle. It should be in the most optimal condition before heading into the cold winter temperatures. By bringing your vehicle in, we can check all the fluids in your vehicle and the condition they are in. This can help your vehicle be more efficient when it runs. It can also help provide you with ease of mind when driving.
