There are many fluids under the hood of a car. For instance, your oil is liquid, and something that needs to be changed regularly, and checked regularly. Eagle Car Removals offers the following information on fluids under the hood of your car. If you notice leaks under your car when you stop the car, it is likely one of the following fluids, and as with any issue your car is experiencing, the check-up of a mechanic should be top on the “To Do” list.
Automatic Transmission Fluid
The automatic transmission fluid of the car is a deep red in colour and smells quite sharp. Many manufactures suggest that the fluid is changed every 30K to 60K miles. If the car is being heavily driven, it may be recommended that the fluid is changed more often.
Power Steering Fluid
The power steering fluid is a yellowish liquid that is a bit thick. Typically, the fluid should be drained and refilled as part of the scheduled maintenance interval.
Windshield Washer Fluid
The windshield washer fluid is not a fluid under the hood that typically needs to be drained. However, it is essential to keep its reservoir with an adequate level of fluid. The fluid is something that comes in handy when traveling on roads with bugs that splatter on your windshield so that drivers can easily wash them off of the glass.
Because different manufacturers have different interval suggestions for changing the brake fluid, it will be necessary to read the owner’s manual for your car. Some manufacturers suggest that the brake fluid should be replaced every two years, some recommend every 30K miles, etc.
The coolant of the car is the antifreeze. Again, manufacturers will vary on recommendations for changing the coolant of a car. Your owner’s manual for your car may have the suggested interval listed for changing the coolant of the car, or it may not. If you cannot find the information, contact the dealer, or your mechanic.
