ENGINE FLUIDS: WHAT YOU NEED AND WHEN TO REPLACE THEM


Cars need a lot of maintenance to keep them up and running. From windshield wiper blades to tires, our cars require tons of TLC. One of the most vital aspects of our vehicle’s engine is its fluids. Luckily, it is quite simple to monitor these fluids. Most of the time, all you need to do is lift up your hood and have a look. Checking your vehicle’s fluids on a regular basis is guaranteed to save you time and money down the road.
Which fluids should I check? Here are five of your engine’s fluids you should make a habit of checking:
ENGINE OIL
Check your oil once a month.
Check out your owner’s manual to know when to have the oil replaced. Timeframes depend on the car.

It should be replaced every 50,000 to 100,000 miles.
