Most people understand the fact that they need to change the oil in their car on a regular basis, but not many people know that there are many other fluids that should be looked at from time to time. There are a number of different fluids that your car relies on for performance and reliability, and some of these fluids are almost as important as the oil in your car. You should make sure that you use regular fluid flushes to take care of all the fluids in your car, and not just the oil.
Which Fluids Need to Be Flushed?
You brake fluid definitely needs to be looked at every two years. If you are someone who drives a lot, then you may want to actually take a look at what’s going on in there after 30,000 miles. Bad brake fluid can lead to a number of different issues, including a dangerous increase in the amount of time that it takes your car to stop. You could also be looking at rotor damage from overheating due to old brake fluids, and an avoidance of changing the brake fluids could even lead to premature wear on your brake pads.
The cooling system is another part of the car that could use a fluid flush every two years or 30,000 miles. If you do not get this service from FixCarNow, then you can expect to see damage to the water filter over time. This could also lead to corrosion found in the radiator, or even a complete engine failure.
Another fluid that needs to be looked at in your car on a routine basis is the power steering fluid. Without changing the power steering fluid, you could start to experience leaks and a loss of assisted steering options while you are driving. You can also shorten the life of the power steering pump. In worst case scenarios where you avoid taking care of this problem for too long, you could face a steering gear failure.
One final fluid flush that you should look at is the transmission fluid flush. Lack of attention paid to this fluid in your car can lead to rough shifting that does not feel right or even a complete transmission failure after a long period of time.
If you have not had a full fluid flush in quite some time, then you need to contact FixCarNow as soon as possible. Anyone who has not had their fluids at least checked in two years or more could be driving a ticking time bomb down the road every single day. A fluid flush is not going to cost you that much money, but it can have a huge impact on the overall health of your vehicle.
