It’s common to get an oil change and completely neglect the other essential fluids. But a vehicle is a machine made up of moving parts, all of which rely on the maintenance of fluids to stay functional.
Below are four key fluids:
1. Oil: moves through the engine, lubricating essential parts and reducing wear and tear.
2. Coolant: a mixture of water and antifreeze that regulates and releases heat from the engine.
3. Power steering: uses hydraulic pressure to ease the motion between your steering wheel and tire.
4. Transmission fluid: keeps the transmission lubricated, ensuring your gears move smoothly.
