To care for your vehicle properly and keep it in perfect shape for longer, you must learn about its needs. This post will go over the 6 most important fluids your vehicle requires to run.

How to Take Care of Your Vehicle's Fluids

To say that your vehicle is a complex machine is an understatement: it has a myriad of different components that are meant to do a myriad of different things. However, maintaining your vehicle's fluids is probably one of the best things you can do to ensure its proper functioning. For that reason, in this post will go over the basic fluids your vehicle needs, so you can keep them in mind and maintain them accordingly.

The Gasoline

First and foremost, the most popular of all vehicle fluids: the gasoline. If you've ever driven or seen a vehicle, then you're probably familiar with it. Needless to say, you simply cannot drive your vehicle without any gasoline, which is why it's recommended that you refill it when you see the fuel gauge hit the 1/4 mark. Plus, letting your engine run on empty may not be the best for it. Moreover, if you're diligent with this rule of thumb, you won't ever have to worry about running out of gas.

The Brake Fluid

While the gasoline is what helps your vehicle go, the brake fluid is what helps it stop or decrease its speed. It does that by assisting the braking system in transferring the force that lets it brake. Additionally, the brake fluid lubricates the moving components in the braking system to protect them from premature wear. The brake fluid has very important jobs and disregarding it can result in a faulty braking system and disastrous and even fatal consequences. To ensure nothing of the sort happens to you, check your brake fluid with regularity.

The Synthetic Lubricant

Your engine has the incredibly difficult but crucial task of moving your vehicle from point A to point B. When the engine is running, several processes take place within it, in which its parts move around and brush up against each other. In doing so, they generate friction and heat, which can lead to their premature wear and can render your engine useless. In comes the synthetic lubricant, which is in charge of protecting the moving parts, lubricating them to help smooth out their processes, and extending your engine's lifespan. Needless to say, the synthetic lubricant is extremely important, so read this post to learn how often you should change it.

The Coolant

As you could probably gather from the previous entry, your engine works exceptionally hard, and when it does, its moving parts start to heat up. The problem is that if they heat up too much, your engine can shut down and leave you stranded on the side of the road. Luckily, there's a cooling system (which works with this next fluid on the list - coolant) that regulates the engine's temperature and brings it down. But, as you can guess, for it to function properly, the coolant must be maintained and refilled as necessary.

The Power Steering Fluid

If your vehicle had no power steering system, you would have to drive in a straight line all of the time, through buildings, fields, rivers, and more. Thankfully, there is a power steering system that lets you turn and change directions. However, much like the systems in some of the other entries in this post, this one has to be lubricated and protected against excessive wear, too. A properly maintained power steering fluid is what will keep this integral system young and strong for years to come.

The Transmission Fluid

The last essential fluid that we'll go over in this list is the transmission fluid. As its name states, it is responsible for helping the transmission system and its moving components endure against the relentless friction that happens when they're in use. In case you're unaware, the transmission system is what allows you to have some control over the vehicle's power, gears, and speed. So, if you'd like to continue having that control, replace the transmission fluid as instructed in your owner's manual.
