Saint Peters' Leading Engine Repair Shop Offers Tips on Maintaining Your Car's Fluid Levels , St. Charles, Missouri

Monitoring your car's fluid levels may help you avoid expensive repairs later down the road. Whether it is an oil change or brake fluid replacement, making sure these fluid levels are well-maintained will have a positive effect on your car's efficiency and performance. The experts at Frecks & Sons' Automotive, an engine repair and oil change shop in Saint Peters, MO, offer these tips for maintaining your car's fluid levels:

  • Engine Oil: Engine oil is important to the health of your car's engine. It's recommended that you check your car's engine oil once a month. If the oil level is low, you should add more immediately. For oil changes, your car's owner's manual has guidelines for how often to change it, such as every 5,000 miles or every five months.
  • Transmission Fluid: Transmission fluid keeps your car's gears in good working order. Check transmission fluid monthly, looking at the quality of the fluid. Fluid that is brown or smells charred needs replaced. You'll typically need to replace transmission fluid every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on the car and the transmission type.
  • Brake Fluid: Brake fluid is necessary for your car's brakes to work properly. Check your brake fluid every time you change your oil. It should be replaced every two years to avoid unnecessary brake repair.
