BC Drivers: Learn How to Maintain the Fluids in Your Ford Vehicle

May 25,2022

When it comes to vehicle fluids, there is a lot more to it than just a simple oil change. However, when you go in for this routine maintenance, you can have the liquid level checked and topped off. The other option is to do it yourself.

Aside from the engine oil, you should inspect the following fluids frequently:

Coollant
Brakes
Transmission
Power steering
Each of these serves a unique purpose and directly affects the way your car, truck, van, or SUV drives. If there is any leaking, you can determine the culprit by the color.

Light brown to black is engine oil. This leak tends to start in the gaskets or seals of the motor. It may also be coming from the valves covers to even the oil pan, and it should be addressed by a professional immediately.

Red or brown is the transmission fluid, which will be accompanied by a strong odour. The problem can usually be found in the transmission, radiator, or cooling system. Next, the power steering liquid is typically clear, red, or brown. Moisture is usually found near the front left side of the vehicle. Finally, brake fluid is yellow, and coolant can be green, orange, pink, or blue.
