A Brief Overview of the Most Essential Car Fluids
Vehicles are truly sophisticated pieces of machinery. Outside of gasoline or diesel, depending on the type of engine your vehicle uses, you’ll also want to pay special attention to the many fluids under the hood, including motor oil and transmission fluid.
The transmission, if you didn’t already know, is the large, rod-shaped device at the bottom of vehicles that shifts gears. Without a transmission, each and every vehicle wouldn’t be nearly as fast, couldn’t maintain their speed as easily, and, overall, wouldn’t be what makes a vehicle, a vehicle. Transmission fluid needs to be checked every month, and flushed every 100,000 miles or so at the recommendation of your auto manufacturer. It’s also replaced at this time. Motor oil is another great fluid, known for keeping engines in good, undamaged shape.
