Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that acts as a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. In an automatic transmission, this fluid also serves as a coolant and a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission. There is a large variety of transmission fluids that are used for different transmissions. It is important to change this fluid just as you would change the engine oil, the difference is the transmission fluid lasts 30,000 miles to 60,000 miles. Transmission repair is generally a very expensive bill, so it’s very important to have your transmission serviced on time every time.
POWER STEERING FLUID
Power rack-and-pinion steering fluid is pressurized by the pump and pushes on either side of a piston mounted to the rack, helping you turn the wheels. Simply put,power-steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in power steering. This is also a much overlooked fluid under the hood. Power Steering flushes are fairly inexpensive and should be done every 30,000 to 60,000 miles depending on use and manufacture.
Coolant flows through your radiator, water pump, water hoses and through internal engine passages to keep the engine from overheating. In today’s vehicles there are several vehicle specific coolants, it is very important to use the correct coolant for the correct application. This is another important service that needs attention every 1-2 years. depending on the amount the vehicle is used.
Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, is responsible for moving the various components of your vehicle’s braking system. The fluid operates under high temperatures and high pressure and, without it, your car or truck would not be able to stop when you push the brake pedal inside your vehicle. Brake fluid breaks down and absorbs water over time and should be replaced every 30,000 miles, or at the very least every time the car needs brakes.
Automobile engines have many moving parts. As these parts move and rub against each other, the force of friction creates heat. Oil lubricates the engine and absorbs heat, allowing the internal parts to work together effectively without overheating. The engine oil should be changed by mileage interval depending on type of oil, we recommend Conventional oil 3000 miles, Synthetics 5000 miles, Diesels 5000 miles.
Many manufacturers are stretching this interval by more and more miles. We believe that the engine oil breaks down over time and also get dirty from the combustion chambers(where the fuel burns) so its a good idea to keep the engine oil clean and serviced on a regular basis. lar basis.
