When it comes to owning a car, you should remember it requires several fluids to operate in addition to gasoline. These specific fluids have been designed by manufacturers to ensure that your vehicle continues to run reliably, efficiently and safely. At Meissner Automotive, our highly trained and experienced ASE certified technicians perform all types of fluid exchange services for all makes and models in Palo Alto, CA. Here are the 5 vital fluids we check on a regular basis.
Our expert team members provide you with the best oil change services. Remember, your vehicle will require an oil change for every 3000-5000 miles to ensure the engine is clean and lubricates appropriately. If you don't change your car's oil regularly, your engine would flood with contaminants and eventually seize.
One crucial component when it comes to getting the power generated by the engine to the wheels is the differential. For it to operate optimally, it requires a differential oil to lubricate the ring and pinion gears. If the fluid is dirty, contaminated or past the recommended maintenance schedule, it could cause vibration, noise and fluid leaks that can significantly affect your vehicle's acceleration. Meissner Automotive technicians will drain and inspect the used fluid, the differential and make the necessary repairs.
Transmission Fluid Flush
Your car's transmission fluid ensures that the transmission has adequate lubrication to enable smooth gear shifts. We provide you with the best transmission fluid flush services. In most instances, you will require this service after every 30000 miles. However, for the best outcome, make sure you check your car owner's manual to know how often your car needs this service.
Your vehicle's cooling system includes the water pump, radiator, thermostat and numerous other parts. These components utilize a unique fluid known as antifreeze or coolant. From time to time, you will need to drain this fluid and refill it to ensure it's free of any contaminants. Meissner Automotive experts will assess the state of your radiator and service your cooling system fully.
Power Steering Flush
Low power steering fluid may be indicative of a leak in the power steering rack. Low steering fluid could result in whining or groaning noise, especially when turning the steering wheel, and your car will become difficult to control. Contact our professionals if you notice any of the following:
- Fluid Leak
- Whining or squealing noises when turning the steering wheel.
- Power-steering fluid color change from amber, red, pink, to brown or black.
