You may be more familiar with fluid flushes than you know, especially considering that an oil change can be considered a type of fluid flush. Many other systems in your vehicle also require fluid to function. Like the oil in your engine, these other fluids will also catch contaminants and harmful materials that can build up over time. The purpose of a fluid flush is to exchange the old and contaminated fluid with new fluid to protect your vehicle from damage. At Toyota of Toyota of New Orleans, our service department offers affordable fluid flushes for drivers all over Louisiana and beyond. If you’d like to learn more about fluid flushes, give us a call or stop by next time you’re around Slidell or Baton Rouge.
It’s safe to assume that every driver wants to keep their brakes in good shape since they play such an important role in your safety. Did you know that your brake fluid needs to be changed to protect your brakes? Brake fluid is especially susceptible to contamination, which is why it needs to be changed every couple of years or as often as stated in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
Engine coolant is another fluid that has an important job to do. It protects your engine, so you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t run out or become contaminated. How often your engine coolant needs to be replaced will depend on the age of your vehicle and how often you drive. A technician can check your coolant for you next time you schedule a service appointment.
A vehicle’s transmission will be expensive to repair or replace if it gets damaged. By staying on top of its fluid changes, you can protect your transmission from harm. Your owner’s manual should let you know how often your transmission needs its fluid changed, but the frequency will depend on how often and where you drive. One of our technicians can inform you of the best fluid flush schedule for your transmission.
You don’t want to assume that your power steering fluid will last as long as your vehicle. A variety of different factors such as extreme weather conditions and the heat from the engine can cause your power steering fluid to break down over time. It’s a good idea to err on the side of caution and schedule a power steering fluid flush around the 50,000-75,000-mile mark.
It can be difficult to keep up with all the different needs of your vehicle, including its fluid flushes. When you go in for your vehicle’s routine maintenance like oil changes or brake service, you can ask one of our highly trained technicians at Toyota of New Orleans to check these fluids for you. They’ll help you decipher the needs of your specific vehicle and they’ll let you know if it’s due for a fluid flush anytime soon.
