Car Fluids You Should Check Regularly

fluidMost drivers know about checking engine oil, but there are several different fluids your engine needs to keep running smoothly. Here are some car fluids you should check regularly to maintain your car’s health and functionality.

Transmission fluid is one of the most important fluids in your car, as it lets the gears run smoothly. While when checking your engine oil the car should be cold, transmission fluid is best checked when the car is running. When you check transmission fluid, your concern is the quality, not the quantity. If transmission fluid is low, there is a problem with your car. If it’s dirty, it needs replaced, but this shouldn’t be necessary more than every 50-100 thousand miles.

Coolant is another important fluid to replace, as it keeps your car from overheating. This is easy to check, as you can just glance at the fill line in the clear tank. Check your brake fluid when you do an oil change. If it’s brown instead of golden, it needs replaced. You should also keep your power steering fluid levels high, but you’ll most likely never need to replace it.
