Popular Types of Fluids under The Car Hood

Cars are a great thing to have around, whether you need them for daily commuting or simply to ensure you don't have to rely on anyone to get around town. This is why keeping them in the best possible shape in important, so be sure to check their fluid levels regularly.

Motor oil is found in all vehicles and must be present in sufficient levels to prevent breaking down. Check it with the dipstick beside the engine, and change it every 5,000 miles.

Brake fluid can be checked by testing brake function. No brake problems? Check it once every few months.

Power steering fluid is the lubricant between the turning of your front wheels and the steering wheel you operate throughout driving anywhere you go. Top it up every few months. Don’t get any debris in the reservoir, founder underneath the hood of your car and checked by simply looking into the off-site, semi-clear container.

You need all these fluids, among others, to operate the vehicle as normal. Having trouble checking on them? Come see us at Bill George's Olathe Kia.
