When to Check Your Fluids


Your vehicle has many different fluids that keep things running smoothly. Not only does your vehicle have engine oil but your vehicle has coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid.

Although these fluids do not have to get replaced or topped up as often as engine oil, they do need to get checked from time to time to make sure that they look good. If it's time to get your vehicle serviced, be sure to bring it to us here at BMW of Fort Myers so we can take care of it for you.

As a general rule of thumb, you should get your oil changed about every 3,000 miles and your transmission fluid every 50,000 to 100,000 miles. Your coolant and brake fluid should only have to get replaced every couple of years. Your power steering fluid should get checked every couple of months. It should get flushed out occasionally too.
