The Fluids in Your Vehicle

The various fluids are changed at different intervals, so it is important to consult the owner’s manual and establish a maintenance schedule. The various fluids include:

  • Automatic transmission fluid
  • Engine Coolant
  • Power steering fluid
  • Differential fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Clutch fluid
  • Transfer case fluid
  • Standard transmission fluid

The best way to service the fluids are to use a machine to flush out the old fluid, add a cleaner and conditioner and install new fluid.

Waiting too long to change fluids can be harmful. As impurities build up in the fluid, the impurities start doing damage to the very parts the fluids are supposed to protect.

Metal, moisture, and dirt in fluids are carried throughout the system. If it goes on long enough, even changing the fluid won’t help because the major damage is done. The fluids should be changed BEFORE they get dirty. The changes should be done by mileage. If the fluid is dirty, it’s too late!

Fluid exchanges vary greatly in price between shops. This is usually due to the cost of the additives used in the service. A good quality cleaner and conditioner is 10 times more expensive than cheaper ones. The price can also vary by the comprehensiveness of the job. If only a partial fluid exchange is performed, naturally, the price will be lower. When you choose Leonard’s Garage to complete your fluid flush in Austin, TX, you can be sure that you are getting the highest quality fluid exchange for the best price.
