If you purchase a quality new or used vehicle, you will have minimal maintenance and repair needs. However, regularly scheduled tune-ups at a service centre can help you avoid issues and keep your car performing at its best.
Here is a list of vehicle fluids that need regular checks in between these visits to a professional.
Engine oil keeps the motor components lubricated for optimal performance. You need to change the liquid as recommended by your owner’s manual. However, insufficient oil can lead to damage, so you should check the level regularly between the scheduled changes.
This fluid makes it easier to apply a large force to your brakes without having to press too hard on the pedal. The liquid has a reservoir under the hood, and it should have a light or amber colour.
Transmission fluid lubricates the different parts of the gear shifter. Some vehicles have a dipstick for checking the level, while others require the help of a mechanic. This particular liquid should be red.
Power Steering Fluid
This fluid lubricates the power steering components. Like the others, it has a reservoir under the hood. The liquid should be near the top of the container and pink coloured.
