Toyota Service Center Strongly Urges You to Check Your Fluids

Toyota of Bowie Service Center Oil


Published September 29, 2016

Your Bowie Toyota service center dealer is well-versed in how a car needs to be taken care of in order for it to remain in excellent condition, and fluids are one of the most important components. From keeping your engine running to keeping the gears moving properly, fluids are vital to your car and need to be checked regularly to ensure your vehicle continues to operate.

Hereís a look at three fluids that absolutely must be checked on a regular basis.

The Oil
Oil is one of the most critical components of a car as it ensure that your engine runs smoothly. Without it, your engine will seize and you will have to start shopping for a new vehicle. In order to check your oil, pop the hood, pull out the dipstick, wipe it off and put it back in. Pull the dipstick back out again and youíll be able to see where the current level lies. If itís in the safe zone, you have enough oil; if itís not, add some until it is in the safe zone.

Transmission Fluid
This fluid keeps the gears moving. To check it, leave your car running and check the transmission fluid the same as you check your engine oil; remove the dipstick, wipe it, replace it and then remove it again. If itís low, take it to a mechanic to have more added.

The Antifreeze
Antifreeze, also known as coolant, keeps the engine cool. If you are running low on coolant, your engine can overheat, which could lead to some serious problems. In order to check your antifreeze, unscrew the radiator cap and look inside. There should be a line that indicates where the coolant level should be. If it is below that line, add more coolant.
