Fluid Flushes or Fluid Exchanges
Your vehicle runs on many different fluids that have important jobs, including transferring power throughout components and keeping vital parts lubricated and protected from overheating and corrosion. Over time with normal use of your vehicle, these fluids will become dirty and low and will need to be replaced. Often times, the actual chamber that holds the fluids will also become dirty and will need to be flushed out to remove contaminants and grime buildup.
The frequency that your vehicle will need fluid flushes or exchanges will depend on your vehicle’s factory recommendations as well as your driving habits. If your vehicle is due for a fluid flush, whether it be transmission fluid, brake fluid, or power steering fluid, the experts here at Bill’s Automotive in Hartford, CT can help. Our ASE certified technicians work on all makes and models of vehicles and will make sure that your vehicle’s fluids are clean and topped off.
A transmission flush is important to the health of your transmission. A fluid flush will remove the old transmission fluid and will flush new oil through the system to remove any buildup from the torque converter and cooler lines.
Brake fluid pumps from the master cylinder to help power your brakes. This fluid needs to be checked regularly and flushed when the fluid is dirty. Dirty fluid can cause a noticeable lack in brake performance.
Power steering fluid also needs to be flushed in order to maintain proper control of your vehicle. Proper lubrication of your vehicle’s steering components protects from damage and corrosion over time.
Fluid flushes are considered an overlooked service, however they are quick maintenance items that will actually save you lots of money in the long run.
