What Fluids Does a Car Need?

Just like blood courses through our veins, of which water is the most important ingredient, vehicles have several fluids that are necessary to operate. We’d be forced to resign to horse-drawn carriages, bicycles, and our legs to get anywhere.

Given such, you should always keep your car’s fluid levels under close supervision and in check. Not doing so could spell trouble for your vehicle, as it’s necessary to maintain fluids. Engine oil is the most necessary fuel and is changed every 5,000 miles, roughly. Transmission fluid is crucial to regularly performance, as well, as it keeps the gearbox and other nearby components lubricated. It’s changed between every 50,000 and 100,000 miles driven, and checked not any more often than when you check your oil. Power steering fluid is important, too, and can be found in the opaque container nearest the steering wheel, under the hood.
