Fluid Exchange Services
The lifespan of your vehicle is largely dependent on the maintenance choices you make. The fluids inside the motor contribute to the car’s ability to run smoothly and efficiently. A routine fluid exchange or flush helps your engine do its job.
Why Does Your Car Need Fluid Flushes and Exchanges?
Driving your car for thousands of miles can take its toll on many components of your engine, including its fluids. Whether it’s your transmission, power steering, or brake fluid, several things can happen after years of use without a proper cleanse. The liquid can break down, minimizing its effectiveness. It may also become contaminated with rust, sludge, moisture or foreign debris. Flushing your system eliminates these hazards and refreshes your engine.
Ignoring fluid maintenance can shorten the life of your car. It can lead to complete system failures that make the vehicle undrivable. These repairs are often more expensive than routine flushes.
How Do You Know When Your Car Needs This Maintenance?
Aside from oil changes, most car manufacturers recommend a fluid flush every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on the type of fluid. If you’re not sure, you can ask your mechanic about the maintenance schedule for your particular vehicle. While following this routine is a good habit to fall into, it’s important to understand that some situations may require you to intervene before you hit a certain mileage point.
A check engine light is a sure sign that something’s amiss, but be on the lookout for unfamiliar sounds, uneven acceleration, or difficulty in basic functions, such as gear shifting, making turns, or braking. Anytime your car isn’t running as it should be, it’s time to have a pro take a peek beneath the hood.
If you buy a used car, the vehicle’s maintenance history may be unknown. In this case, it’s a good idea to perform fluid flushes, so you know it’s in tip-top shape.
