Our team of highly qualified service technicians at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM recently put together a list of the three most important fluids (outside of the oil fluid) that need to be maintained regularly to keep any vehicle in shape.

1. Windshield-Washer Fluid

The windshield-washer fluid isn’t necessary in keeping your car running; however, it is necessary to regularly fill up the windshield-washer fluid tank with washer fluid specifically built to handle road grime. Why? Because without the windshield-washer fluid, seeing the road clearly will be difficult, especially with the seasons changing and weather conditions begin to fluctuate.

2. Brake Fluid

For things like the brake fluid, it’s better to let seasoned professionals take a look at its levels. Under the hood, the brake fluid reservoir can be opened by unscrewing the cap but it’s necessary to make sure dirt or grime don’t accidentally contaminate the fluid, which should be within a half-inch of the cap once opened. Maintaining your brake fluid is not only vital in stopping your vehicle on time, but it’s also important in giving your car a longer life.

3. Transmission Fluid

The transmission is easily the most expensive repair job in the entire car outside of the engine, which makes checking its fluid one of the most important things you can do as a car owner, whether you own a new or pre-owned Jeep SUV. Keeping your transmission lubricated could extend the life of your vehicle and help you avoid costly repairs.

Located in Bowie, MD, the Ourisman Chrsyler Dodge Jeep RAM service center will help you maintain these three fluids. We want to make sure that your car is in good running shape because just like human beings maintaining proper fluid levels is needed to survive.
