Fluid Exchanges Lancaster, CAYour vehicle uses multiple fluids to regulate, lubricate, cool, and clean its various components. Without adequate fluid levels, you can severely damage your engine and other critical auto parts. Responsible car owners regularly check fluids and exchange them when necessary.
At Hi-Tech Auto Electric, we take the pain out of fluid exchanges. We can help you assess your fluid levels and replace them when the time comes. If you don't have experience with auto mechanics, it's often a good idea to leave fluid exchanges to the experts.
Types of Auto FluidsWhile most drivers understand the importance of engine oil, few realize how many other fluids are required to operate their vehicles. Let's look at the primary fluids you find in most cars:
• Oil: Engine oil is responsible for lubricating your engine. If you don't have enough, it can destroy your engine. This needs to be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
• Transmission Fluid: Transmission fluid helps smoothen the process of shifting gears. In most cases, you will need to change this fluid every 30,000 miles.
• Coolant: Coolant helps your cooling system (radiator, thermostat, water pump, etc.). Drivers must drain their coolant and refill it to ensure there are no contaminants.
• Power Steering Fluid: To keep your power steering pump working, it's essential to keep your power steering fluid at optimal levels. • Differential Fluid: To keep your differential running smoothly, you need to ensure there is enough differential fluid to provide lubrication.
