Most drivers are familiar with their vehicle’s regular engine oil change, which is typically required every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. Engine oil tends to wear down more quickly than other fluids, which is why it needs to be replaced more often. It is vital to your car’s engine health, because it keeps it lubricated, clean, and protects against overheating and part damage.
Brake fluid is a crucial part of your car’s braking system. The braking system is hydraulic, so it uses the fluid to transmit force from the brake pedal to the wheels. This works through a specific process in which the brake cylinder converts pressure from the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure, which then is transmitted through the brake fluid in the brake lines. Low, dirty, or leaking brake fluid can lead to ineffective brakes.
Transmission fluid helps ensure that your vehicle's transmission components are properly lubricated to prevent metal to metal contact and dirt/grime buildup between parts.
Power Steering Fluid
The power steering fluid in your car is also a hydraulic fluid, much like brake fluid. It transfers force to a hydraulic piston in the steering rack to ensure that you are able to easily steer your vehicle.
