Lube Oil Change & Car Maintenance Professionals in Austin Texas


Every car and driver are different. One person might drive all day for business while another will use it to get work and work back home. As a result, changing your cars’ fluids depends on how often you drive, driving conditions, and climate: normal or severe. With summer just around the corner, you will probably find yourself trying to escape the heat. That is why, you will need to consult your owner’s manual to ensure your fluids are at the proper levels. This will keep your car running efficiently.

 

Here is a list of fluids you should be checking:

  • Engine
    The dipstick has markings that indicate levels. It is important to keep the oil at proper levels because the engine oil lubricates and protects the engine from metal-on-metal contact.
  • Transmission
    Check the fluids when the car is running or fully warm.
  • Radiator/cooling system
    Don’t forget to turn off your vehicle and wait until the car has cooled down to check the coolant fluids.
  • Brakes
    The plastic container has easy to read fill level lines.
  • Power Steering
    This looks like the brake fluid measurements, but it will have lines for hot and cold engine levels.
  • Window washer
    This can remain low or full.

Checking the car fluid levels does not take much effort but it is important. If you are not sure on these maintenance measures, please bring your car in and a skilled professional at Groovy Lube can help. A quick check will avoid letting fluid levels drop below the fill line which can cause severe damage to your car. 

 

As always, check your owner’s manual for the recommended scheduled changes and come into Groovy Lube so our team can help.
