Your Vehicle Needs Fluids

To word it most simply, without the many fluids that exist in your vehicle, it wouldn’t stand a chance of running. Without exaggerating, your vehicle likely wouldn’t roll an inch without engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, and other fluids necessary for regular function.

You should check motor oil, also called engine oil, about every 3,000 miles. However, your vehicle may require an oil change to 5,000 miles, or even longer. Checking your owner's manual to learn more.

Transmission fluid helps the gears in your transmission shift like they’re supposed to. Check it every month, replace it no later than every 100,000 miles.

Coolant is also called antifreeze, and is found in the radiator, a contraption that houses a larger fan to cool the vehicle off.

If brakes aren’t functioning well, check the brake fluid, you should replace it every two years. Need help determining what fluids you need, when, and why? Contact us, Orchid Isle Auto Center.
