Important Car Fluids to Remember

While most people know they need to keep up with regular oil changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, there are other vital car fluids you shouldn’t forget about.

Transmission Fluid: In the same way your oil lubricates your car’s engine, transmission fluid will lubricate your transmission, allowing for smooth gear changes. Given that a smooth working transmission is essential for enjoying your driving experience, and that a broken transmission is very costly, it’s crucial that you don’t skip out on this service.

Brake Fluid: Your braking system relies on the hydraulic pressure created by brake fluid running through your car’s brake lines. Brake fluid also prevents early wear of your car’s brake parts. Brake fluid should be changed roughly every 24,000 to 36,000 miles, but this can vary between models.

Coolant: Also called antifreeze, this fluid is responsible for regulating the temperature of your car’s engine. It prevents your car’s engine from overheating during the summer while preventing it from freezing during the winter. The service schedule for this fluid change also varies but is usually done about every 36,000 miles.
