Keep Your Car Performing Its Best With Regular Fluid Services

Rad Air of Wickliffe Provides the Fluid Exchanges You Need

If you live or work in Wickliffe, you do your fair share of city driving throughout Lake County. This type of driving can take a toll on your car as the oil doesn’t have a chance to reach its proper operating temperature, which can expose your engine’s parts to heat, inadequate lubrication, and unwanted sludge. Oil sludge is bad news for your vehicle’s engine. However, oil changes are just one type of fluid service that you need to be concerned about for your car. Rad Air of Wickliffe offers all of the essential fluid services you need to keep your vehicle operating smoothly.

 

Oil Changes Are Just One of the Many Types of Fluid Services

You know that your car needs an oil change roughly every 3,000 to 7,500 miles, but do you know how often the other fluids in your vehicle need to be replaced? Rad Air generally recommends that your vehicle’s fluids—including brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, differential (axle) fluid, and transfer case fluids—be inspected regularly and flushed every 30,000 miles or during every service visit. If these fluids are not regularly serviced, they can affect the performance and condition of your vehicle. Here’s why:

 

Fluids Can Easily Become Contaminated

Over time, the fluids can break down due to heat, chemical reactions, and the additives’ life span expiring. Other issues include oxidation, moisture, and exposure to outside air. Dirt, dust, and debris can saturate the fluids, rendering them ineffective at performing their essential function. Most fluids are intended to lubricate your vehicle’s moving parts. If they are contaminated, they can potentially cause corrosion and undue wear and tear on your vehicle’s systems.
