Fluids Leaking From Vehicle

Have you seen a puddle under your car? This is never a good sign. If something is leaking, you’ll need to get your vehicle looked at right away. Whether it is oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze or gas this is something that needs fixing immediately.

Many experts recommend a quick check before starting your vehicle. A quick walk around the vehicle and a peek underneath to check for trouble will give you a chance to identify problems before you make them worse by running your car without proper fluids.

Some folks believe that scheduled maintenance translates into, “just another way for the dealership to gouge me.” It can be tempting to put off oil changes and other maintenance, but ignoring your ride will cost you in the long term.

Consider how much you spent on your vehicle. For maximum return on your investment, follow the manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance plan and make sure to keep an eye on things in between.

Maybe the vehicle is running great at the moment and perhaps you’ve been lucky. Avoid finding yourself stranded on the side of the highway waiting for a costly tow to the a mechanic’s shop. Take care of scheduled maintenance when it is due.
