Why Service is Essential

If you notice your vehicle leaking fluids, there are a couple of ways to determine which fluid it might be. For example, Radiator fluid is brilliant green and very slippery. Antifreeze, or coolant, can be pink or green, and is very dangerous to pets. Knowing what to look for, and executing proper maintenance and fluid changes could expand the life of your automobile.
Different Types of Fluid Flushes
What is a Fluid Flush? Technically, an oil change is a fluid flush. Your vehicle has several different fluids to help its components do their jobs. A fluid flush involves draining all of a certain type of fluid out of your vehicle and replacing it with new, pristine fluid. Your cars transmission requires a specific type of oil in order to make it function properly. Over time, this oil, commonly referred to as transmission fluid, picks up dirt and grime. That dirt can cause clogs within your transmission system. A Brake Flush is probably the most common fluid service, other than an oil change, and for good reason. Brake fluid is the most susceptible to gathering dirt and grime, causing ineffective brakes. Ineffective brakes are terribly unsafe. In addition to dirt and other contaminants, it is also very easy to get water into our brake fluid. Your brake fluid should be clear and translucent. Another important fluid to maintain is Antifreeze/Coolant. Coolant does the important job of protecting your engine. A few more essential fluid flushes include Power Steering, Rear Differential and a Fuel Injection fluid flush.
