Regular maintenance is critical to longevity with your vehicle. One of the most basic and often overlooked parts of maintenance is fluid flushes. You can rely on the fluid flush service with Premier Clearance Center Metairie for your travels around Metairie, New Orleans, and Kenner.
Fluid flush service allows the different fluids in your vehicle to be drained and replaced with clean, new fluid. Fluids in your vehicle help other parts to work accurately. Over time, they get dirty and aren’t as effective at their job. The service technicians at Premier Clearance Center Metairie will work to keep your vehicle running smoothly with clean fluids.
One of the most well-known fluid flushes is the oil change. It’s the one that most vehicle owners take care of. However, they may let it go too long between changes, which can make the engine work harder. The oil travels through the system to lubricate the engine’s moving parts. It should be changed around 3000 to 5000 miles or as directed in your owner’s manual. It’s one of the most important tasks to protect your engine.
Another expensive component of your vehicle is the transmission. Transmission fluid keeps the transmission working smoothly as it changes gears. When the fluid gets dirty, it doesn’t lubricate the transmission as well and may make it more difficult to shift gears. The service technicians will check your transmission fluid during oil changes and let you know if it gets dirty.
Along with the oil, another fluid important to your engine’s performance is the engine coolant. Poured into the radiator or overflow container, the coolant or anti-freeze helps keep the engine from overheating. If the engine overheats, it can be damaged and need to be replaced. A new engine could cost several thousands of dollars. If you drive an older model, you’ll need to have your coolant changed fairly often. Newer models have five- and ten-year products, which helps to reduce the need for maintenance.
Your brakes are one of the most important parts of your vehicle for safety. You rely on them to stop quickly in certain situations. The brake fluid helps keep the brake components working the way they should. Just like with other fluids, when the brake fluid gets dirty, it may not work as well as it should.
When it gets dirty, you may smell a burnt odor, which is an indication that the system needs to be flushed out. Otherwise, you should get a brake flush about every 24,000 to 36,000 miles. You can consult your owner’s manual or talk to the service technicians at Premier Clearance Center Metairie to find out when to schedule a brake fluid flush.
Keep your vehicle running smoothly with regular fluid flushes. If you aren’t certain what needs to be serviced or you know it’s time for a fluid flush, schedule an appointment with the service team at Premier Clearance Center Metairie.
