The fluids in your car are very significant – they lubricate, cool, clean and protect some very costly components of your vehicle. Fluids protect important systems in your car like the brakes, the engine and transmission. Making sure the fluids are clean and topped up reduces the risk of damage to these systems and ensures they are performing correctly.
Types of fluid in your vehicle include:
Oil: Lubricates the moving parts of your engine and prevents friction causing heat and wear
Transmission fluid: Facilitates smooth gear shifting and prolongs transmission life
Brake Fluid: Transmits the pressure from the brake pedal to the brake pads.
Power Steering Fluid: The hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in power steering.
Coolant: Maintains the correct temperature of your cooling system and prevents corrosion
Clutch Fluid: Operates the clutch in manual transmission vehicles.
