Power Steering Fluid

One of the most important fluids lubricates the power steering system in your vehicle. If it gets low or contaminated, you may notice that it becomes more challenging to turn the wheel. You can check the levels at any time with the manufacturer-provided dipstick, much like you would measure regular motor oil.

Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid lubricates your gears and facilitates smooth shifting. You can read your owner’s manual to find the reservoir in your vehicle. Technicians typically recommend that you have the levels and clarity checked professionally between 50,000 to 100,000 km. 

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid ensures smooth stopping. If it gets low, the hydraulics in the system will cease responding immediately when you press the pedal. You should check this vital lubricant (and replace it if necessary) every 30,000 km or two years, whichever comes first.
