Just like oil for your engine, your vehicle relies on a liquid in many systems to keep everything running smoothly and reducing wear and tear. Without fluid services, many of these systems will fail, lowering performance and causing damage. It can be hard to know when to book a service appointment, so to make things easier, we've created this page to show you some of the signs and symptoms.
With New England roads being just as unpredictable as the weather, the last thing you need is for your windshield washer fluid to be empty. Whether you need fluid, new wipers, or any other maintenance, our certified service technicians are ready to assist you.
When you turn your steering wheel, it doesn't feel like you are moving a two-ton vehicle, thanks to your power steering fluid. With low power steering fluid, you'll notice a lot more resistance or shaking when attempting to turn your steering wheel. With low fluid, you may also hear loud squealing when turning. If you experience any of these signs, it's an excellent time to schedule service before damage occurs.
Like your power steering system, your brake system uses fluid to help you operate your vehicle with ease. If your brake fluid levels drop, you may notice it takes longer to slow down and come to a complete stop, which can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your brakes and make it more difficult to avoid collisions. If your brake fluid light comes on or it becomes harder to slow, schedule a service appointment before more costly damage occurs.
Engine coolant is a crucial part of keeping your vehicle operating efficiently and at peak performance. Coolant helps regulate the temperature in your engine to prevent overheating and performance dips. With low coolant, you may notice increased fuel consumption and higher emissions. If you think your coolant levels are short, call our service center to set up a service appointment.
One of the often-overlooked services is differential gear services. Like the other systems within your vehicle, the differential relies on the fluid to continue operating smoothly and increase its parts' longevity. If you notice a grinding or rattling noise while driving, you may have low fluid levels in your differential and should schedule service before permanent damage occurs.
