When should I come in?

The frequency of fluid changes for your car will vary depending on several factors, including the make and model of your vehicle, your driving habits, and the conditions in which you drive. In general, however, most vehicle manufacturers recommend the following fluid change intervals:

  1. Engine oil: Most manufacturers recommend changing your engine oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. However, newer cars with synthetic oil may require oil changes every 10,000 to 15,000 miles.

  2. Transmission fluid: Most manufacturers recommend changing your transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles or every two to four years.

  3. Brake fluid: Most manufacturers recommend changing your brake fluid every two years, regardless of mileage.

  4. Power steering fluid: Most manufacturers do not provide specific guidelines for power steering fluid changes, but it’s a good idea to have it inspected during regular maintenance visits.

  5. Coolant/antifreeze: Most manufacturers recommend changing your coolant/antifreeze every two to three years or every 30,000 to 50,000 miles.

It’s important to note that these are general guidelines, and your specific vehicle may have different recommendations. To ensure that your car’s fluids are changed at the appropriate intervals, be sure to check your owner’s manual or consult with a qualified mechanic.

Additionally, if you notice any unusual sounds or smells coming from your vehicle, or if you experience any changes in performance or handling, it’s important to have your fluids checked and changed as soon as possible to avoid any potential damage or safety hazards.
